Recommended Posts

Before I begin the list, here's a few of the high profile games that didn't make the list:

Splinter Cell

WCW vs. nWo: World Tour

Street Fighter 2

Streets of Rage

Doom 3

The Getaway

NCAA Football Series

etc.

Also, many of them on the bottom were tied and I had to make some tough cuts like a few of the ones below. Anyways, muse over a few of the ones not included while I prepare to post #50.

50. The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (SNES)

In 1991, Nintendo released its first 16-bit Legend of Zelda game to massive acclaim from both game critics and by LOZ fans. The game's breathtaking graphics and immensive gameplay have kept fans playing for the past 13 years and will keep them playing for many more years.

49. Suikoden (PS1)

During the Playstation era, two series' were supreme. The first was Final Fantasy. The second was Suikoden. Suikoden has been raved as being close to Final Fantasy in gameplay value, and while Suikoden's story isn't as strong as the FF series, it holds its own in RPG fans' eyes.

List so far:

49. Suikoden (PS1)

50. The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (SNES)

48. Championship Manager: Season 03-04 (PC)

While soccer (or football for the Europeans) has never capitalized here, one managing game has become a cult smash throughout the entire world. Championship Manager has become such a smash due to the bevy of options and many other features that soccer/football fans need. It has also proven the influence of the cult wretsling sims Promotion Wars and this board's signature game, Extreme Warfare Revenge.

List so far:

48. Championship Manager: Season 03-04 (PC)

49. Suikoden (PS1)

50. The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (SNES)

47. Super Metroid (SNES)

After the debacle of its Game Boy sequel, Metroid II, Nintendo and game-maker Intelligent Systems went to work to make Samus's foray into the 16-bit world more pleasant. What they came up with in 1994 was Super Metroid, a game that became as classic (or even more classic) than its NES original.

List so far:

47. Super Metroid (SNES)

48. Championship Manager: Season 03-04 (PC)

49. Suikoden (PS1)

50. The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (SNES)

46. Sensible World of Soccer (AMIGA)

A bit surprising, yes, but this has gained another massive cult following among football/soccer/Amiga fans. With its addictive gameplay, the game has left a heartfelt place among its fans.

45. Fable (XBOX)

Despite the fact that it's not released yet, teh Kou hath convced me that this is still worth putting on the list. The game arrives Spetember 14th, and if youwant anybody to blame for this being on the list, blame Kou.....or me. :(

44. Spiderman vs. Venom: Maximum Carnage (GEN)

Another choice that you can blame on a user if you don't like it but in any case, this is a fun Genesis game (while it probably will be disputed as the best Spiderman game).

EDIT: I guarantee you that the next result will be far less disputed as to why it is on here.

43. Earthbound (SNES)

Some big fans might be disputed about this place for Earthbound but many will be happy about this game's inclusion. This classic RPG has been noted as one of Nintendo's best on the SNES and has been a fan favorite for over 10 years. Now, Nintendo, where's that sequel?

42. Pirates! (PC/C64)

If thereis anything to remember about this game, it's that it introduced a man who has become for the PC gaming world what Shigeru Miyamoto became for Nintendo. Let me say this, this isn't Sid's last appearance on this chart. Another of his classics is later on in the chart.

41. Snatcher (Sega CD)

A great yet underrated Konami work pre-Metal Gear Solid (but post-Metal Gear at the same time) made by MGS designer Hideo Kojima. One of the solid Konami games that still holds a good fan base today, and of course, this isn't the last Kojima game among the list.

40. Ogre Battle 64 (N64)

A game with certainly no equal on the N64, Ogre Battle 64 came out in 2000 above many gamers' heads. However, with a devoted fanbase, OB64 has gained status as one of the system's top underrated titles and possibly its only good RPG.

39. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES)

Released in the final days of the SNES, Super Mario RPG represented a bittersweet time for Nintendo. The game was an excellent collaboration between Nintendo and famed RPG giant Squaresoft and proved to give a great RPG experience for gamers, as most Square games usually are. Unfortunately for Nintendo, it would be the last Square game on a Nintendo console until 2004's Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for the Nintendo Gamecube.

38. Fallout (PC)

A classic that has made PC fans (as well as X-Play's Adam Sessler) happy for years, Fallout centers on a nuclear holocaustal United States and your quest to search for survivors. The game was a very different RPG compared to most RPGs, which usually went to fantasy realms for inspiration. Its sequel, Fallout 2, also has made a massive impact on the PC RPG world.
