Vandal Hearts it would still be top if I included Square RPG's I'd also put Suikoden II and Wild Arms there as well then after that a lot of Square games get mixed in with others.

Suikoden II, it has some of the most brilliant writing I've seen in a game and lots of memorable moments and characters.

Suikoden 2.

Suikoden 2 is the only game on that list that I have played since I didn't own the ps1...but its one of my favorite rpg's ever so I'm pretty sure it would have won easily had I played more of the games.

1- Breath of Fire 3-4 (I need a new game)
2-Persona - Persona 2 Inocent Sin - Eternal Punishment.
3- Grandia
4- Wild Arms
5- Suikoden 1-2
Special mention to Koudelka, i really enjoy the story and music of that game.
Thats is my top 5, but objectively Suikoden 2 is the best PS1 Jrpg.

Around the Network

This poll really needed more than ten options. There were a lot of excellent non-Square RPGs on PS1. My own favorites are Lunar 1 and 2 and Valkyrie Profile.

Legend of Dragoon

Digimon World, Digimon World 2, and Digimon World 3 were fantastic RPGs for the PS1 not made by Square.

DMW3 is still one of my favorite games ever.

Either Breath of Fire 3/4 or Legend of Dragoon.
