I also feel Stella Glow should have gotten a 9 or higher. I say it should have been number one on this list. It may be the best RPG ever made!

Just play all the Trails games on PC if you want quality JRPGs.

I've seen Stella Glow on the shelves multiple times now and everytime I NEARLY bought it because my favorite artist (Ideolo) illustrated the box art.

3:58 "The addition of class systems can transform your character into various specializations for added pleasure." What? That doesn't even sound human.

so happy someone acknowledged Rune Factory. To me, that game is #1

Anyone know what game the thumbnail is from?
Arcanua the Red Mage (2 months ago)
"3 Atlas games in a row!?" Well yeah Atlas are gods of handheld gaming. x3 Xenoblade Chronicles btw has NOTHING to do with the Xenogears and Xenosaga games, nothing past the word Xeno, and the fact that Monolith was involved.

To be honest i dont like fire emblem its not the best rpg in my opinion. and i dont like the gameplay at all.
Lord Ice (7 months ago)
You screwed up the little amount of plot mentioned for Dragon Quest VII. Those "mysterious" islands were disconnected from the way rod in the past and you go into the past to save them. BTW, I love Awakening and Fates, but if we're talking about legit JRPG's and just all the time, Bravely Default is better.
Argemiro Garcia (7 months ago)
Como un juego tan malo como Pokémon X e Y puede estar en segundo lugar
calvin hamill (7 months ago)
Fire Emblem Fates and Awakening are great Echoes is good. I want another one already. Or put sacred stones on the virtual console for 3ds and the one with Lyn.

*Shows Tales of image when talking about Etrian Oddysey* *Wrote Tensie instead of Tensei. 3 times* I think they're doing it on purpose
Aksonjkghkh (10 months ago)
No more good RPG`s except MonHun? Feel the poverty of Nintendo.

Fire Emblem is awesome but i prefer pokemon X&Y
thousandyoung (1 year ago)
I can't stand this shitty graphics and almost all games are for small children, too simple and lots of shovelware. If not for Shin Megami Tensei, Fire Emblem and Monster Hunter i'd kill myself.
Nadia Tu (1 year ago)
one doesn't usually go around catching digimon though =T
Alan Valdivia (1 year ago)
I really don't understand why Pokémon or Yokai Watch are in the top, they're the for kids, the difficult is also for kids (and Pokémon XY is the worst pokémon game, that difficult was for retarded kids), and the story in both of them isn't the great thing, even Digimon has better games from my point of view, Digimon World Re:Digiize Decode, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth, etc, (obviously, that games are nothing compared to Fire Emblem, Monster Hunter, Persona). Welll, the point is that I can't understand why Pokémon and Yokai Watch are in the top

played FL for over 100 hours. Stella is on my bucket list. RF same. BD is ok. Shame the voiceover has no idea what he is talking about. Monster hunter is not playable without a new handheld. Same for xeno.

I really hated the ending/end chapters of Bravely Default and some of the cringy dialouge. What do you guys think?
Ella T Grasso (1 year ago)
may i ask what was your reasoning for the differences in score for the pokemon versions? like why is Omega Ruby .1. better then Alpha Sapphire? and why is Y .03 better then X?

Persona q is amazing
Việt Hoàng Lê (1 year ago)
None of the FE on 3DS can give me the feeling like the ones on GBA did. Well sure, there are lots of new mechanics that make it fun to fiddle with (dozens hours on both FE:A and FE: Fates - all 3 versions). But there is something in the story of the GBA ones that just pulls me in. The new ones' stories are just meh.

Fire emblem is the best 3ds game there ever was~
