Default Top 10 RPGs - As Voted by Japanese

So what do our HDD RPG fans think? I'd comment about the abundance of Dragon Quest on the list but honestly I've hardly played any of them, VIII is the only one I finished and I simply didn't finish 7 (got 40 hours in)

1. Final Fantasy X

2. Dragon Quest III

3. Final Fantasy VII

4. Persona 4

5. Kingdom Hearts II

6. Dragon Quest IX

7. Tales of the Abyss

8. Dragon Quest V

9. Chrono Trigger

10. Fallout 3

The main things that surpriise me are Fallout being on thte list periiod, and FFX not only beating VII but being no.1.

Yeah I'm rather shocked that Fallout 3 made the Top 10 over there.

But a pretty solid list overall i'd say.

List is based on games that appear on consoles, apparently?

Do you have a link to that list? I'm wondering if it went past 10 and where my 2 ol school favorites (Phantasy Star IV and Final Fantasy VI) were listed.

FFVII > FFX. Other than that, I can live with this list.

I might have to give Tales of the Abyss a try after all if Japan feels so highly about it. It's funny that Dragon Quest IX is on the list after so many fans complained about it over there.

And it figures they'd only pick Dragon Quest titles I haven't played so it's hard to comment. I've only played 6-8, but seeing as I think DQ VII was good enough I wouldn't complain much about it being put on the list, if they think the three they did choose are better, maybe they deserve it.

Other than that, it's not the list I would choose, but there are no titles that seem terribly undeserving of the honor. And I'm glad to see Persona 4 get some love.

Yeah, that is surprising. I would think VII or VIII would have been put up higher than that. Still I think there are better games out there than Final Fantasy.
