Default Gamepro's top 26 RPG's

Can't say I agree:

http://www.gamepro.com/article/featu...-26-best-rpgs/

There is some win in this list... but Suikoden 3 making it and NOT 1 or 2??? (3 sucked in comparison).

It's clear this RPG nerd has no clue WTF going on. It was awesome to see Dues EX making the list etc... but their #1 choice does not surprise me and is dissappointing. Eh it might have been "important" from an industry perspective but is hardly #1 of all time.

I think it's clear this guy is young. Most of those games came out in the last 7 years. No Phantasy Star?

Also, Zelda: A Link to the Past is pushing it for an RPG, in my opinion.

Can someone please paste the list? I'm at work & the site is blocked.

No Phantasy Star?! Yeah, I can already tell this list will suck.

I'd love to, but it's not really set up to just cut and paste. There are pictures and long paragraphs about each game. Oh, and it's spread across 4 different pages and when you click to go to the next page, you have to pass through an ad page first. Very annoying and cheap Gamepro.

Yeah, I agree that Suikoden 3 was severely lacking. It wasn't the weakest of the series, but it definitely wasn't the strongest.

This once agains, adds to my theory that FFXII is the most over rated in the series.

I thought it was terrible for a FF game. As a game it was ok, but as a FF game I was dissapointed.

I hated FFXII too.

Actually, I've hated the whole line of PS2 offerings from Square. Well, I liked Kingdom Hearts okay...but it wasn't flawless.

FF9 is kind of where I gave up on Square. Ugh, the ending to that was so bad.

No love for FFX? Anyway, I agree that XII was by far the worst of the recent FFs. Oddly, I really enjoyed the combat of XII but the story never got interesting enough for me and I did very few if any sidequests. First time I've ever done that with a FF.
