In what console does RPG games play best?

Post by calex on Wed Sep 02, 2009 1:00 am

There are different video gaming consoles that
we know, not just we know but also some of
us own. But have you ever compared in what
video gaming console is the best in playing
RPG games? Or from what video gaming console
has the best RPG games? Let's have fun about this
topic. Mine, I'll choose Sony PlayStation 3.

SNES - The birth place of good rpg games in my eyes

Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy 2/3
Secret of Mana 1/2

list goes on

I've gone off of console rpg's these days though.
The ones you tend to find on the pc that have that extra lil something that give you more options have great replay value.

Knights of the Old Rebublic 1/2, while a bit dated now, had a nice feel because your actions would decide whever you went light / dark side.

The Witcher .. what a game. So many choices that effect the overall story in small ways.
The sister of a military captain goes missing, only to turn up in a whore house run by female vampires. Of course, the vampires have the persmission of their customers to feed on them in trade for "services". So when the captain and his soldiers barge in, which side do you fight for?
There are tons of these kinds of choices throughout the game that let you shape your own personality and sense of honor. Just remember that your earlier actions can have consequences later on in the game.
A game worth playing for any RPG fan imo, with great replay value.

Just make sure its either the Enhanced Edition or the original is patched to the latest version. Some drastic changes were made to increase the overall smoothness of the game.

After a fair few years of bad RPG's, I believe this is the way forward for the genre.

The best one is not a console. It's the PC. The best a true game that can be considered an RPG is "Fallout 2".
On the other hand "Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magika Obscura" is another great game with only the annoyance that it has a level cap. This is doubly bad if you play with a tecnologist... Apart from that is good.

I dunno some PS3 games have cool stories...

But I would go with the PC argument still unbeatable imo...

Yes Mag, PS3 and even 2 has/had good game storywise. But a good storyline doesn't makes a good RPG for me. A good RPG must have 2 distinct things. First a very high costumisation of character. For those who played Fallout 2 they know it. There are as many combinations as one can think. Second, a completly dinamic system which allows you to be good or bad, to be a drunk an addict or even a porn star. You can be good with many things, can the reputation of a murderer in a city and of a savior on the other... Meaning you can literally do and be anything you like in the game... So far only Fallout 2 falls into that and is upheld by me as the true RPG.

I must say, as a console gamer my entire life, that they really have gone to shit since back in the day of snes, ps1 in as zumy said, chrono trigger, ff 2 / 3 / 7 etc etc. Now getting into PC games I have to admit, that they are vastly superior. As I still own a PS2, Xbox 360, and while some of the games are fun in itself, amazing, and have good stories. They just don't cut it. They get boring very fast, where as if you are playing a PC game, or even online game, typically their is always going to be an upgrade to the current version you own.
