Few genres of games have had such a dedicated and enthusiastic audience, as that of Role Playing Games, and all this while never having been the most popular or top-selling genre. Also an adventure quest RPG can be a MMORPG, which stand for massive multiplayer online role-playing game, which is played online, and you interact with many other people in a virtual world. The graphics are incredible, the characters hilarious and deeply involving, and the story arresting.
The newest entry in the hugely popular (in Japan) Tales saga, Symphonia was a huge, fun, well told game. There are always ways to expand the difficulty of the game and make each play through a unique experience. Hailed as one of the best video games of all time, it’s no surprise that Final Fantasy VII sits atop this prestigious list.

Xenogears may not be as well-known as Final Fantasy, but it deserves a place in the library of anyone who considers themselves a fan of RPGs.
The best in the series with the possible exception of Suikoden II, Suikoden III tells the story of a huge cast of characters, all intricately entwined with one another. These were followed by (but did not always lead directly to) games on other platforms, such as Akalabeth (1980) (which gave rise to the well-known Ultima series), and Wizardry.
