I liked Secret of Mana a lot for the SNES, and I like the one thats on gameboy or DS ( i forget) The weapon system was great in SoM and you could play with 3 people, and the music and environments were nice.
I liked Star Ocean 2 for playstation (or ps2?) I dont really remember much about it except that it was good enough to keep my interests, and the story/characters were good enough that I actually felt bad when that 1 town flooded.
my favorite RPG's are pokemon ones! Why? Just... everything about them! I like the character designs and names, land layouts are always nice, I LOVE collecting things, I love the breeding system (trying to get the best stats and spells on a baby pokemon) I like how there's different ways to get through the game as in [catch wide variety of pkmn and try to levle them all so you have variety in any fight] or [level the f*** out of 1 pokemon and speed through everything XD ] I love the extra stuff they put in, like making thoe berry foods and a secret fort in ruby/sapphire, or the underground mining thing for items and crystals, and being able to trade pokemon with other people, and items, even online to people around the world. I could go on and on lol... but I'm sure anyone that likes any game could say so much good stuff about their game!
hmmm I'm having trouble of thinking of any more that I like. I wish I had a big list of them to look at all the names, I'm sure there's more that I like.
Right now I'm playing an MMORPG called Dofus, have been playing it for over 5 years! But I guess that's different than a regular RPG.
