The DS was an absolute beast for RPGs, so I am surprised the top 10 did not include a single DS title (with the exception of Chrono Trigger).

A good list and agree with most of it but missing Lost Odyssey.

The wrong Elder Scrolls and the wrong Fallout were picked (New Vegas bubbling under :'( ), and no TWEWY is a travesty, but Skies of Arcadia did well so <3

Thoughts:
  • Witcher 3 should be higher
  • The wrong Elder Scrolls is in there
  • The wrong Fallout is in there
  • Deus Ex should be higher
  • Pokemon sucks balls.
  • Surprised there are so few SNES-era games as that was an RPG beast.

No Souls games? I thought they were popular round here.
