    Dragon Quest 5
    I like dragon quest alot, most of them are incredible (Except 7, god damn I hated 7) but 5 stands out in my mind. It's scope is absolutely amazing and it's a great story through and through.

    You want to know the best RPG but we're not allowed to suggest the best RPG's? Well done.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the games listed in the DS RPG sticky are ALL the RPGs on the DS.

    Because you've played it and know that it's that good? I'm sick of people just taking games at their brand name and instantly assuming they're gonna be "the best" or "great". Brand loyalty is what leads to the crash of the video game market.

    And why no Sonic Chronicles? That's just random. Probably because, as mentioned before, it's a sneaky "what game should I play" thread.

    IDK, I find there's a lot of RPGs for the DS but not a lot worth playing. I think the PSP has better RPGs. Go ahead, bash me.

    How do you know if he had played it or not?

    Goldun Sun combines everything that is great of turn-based RPGs and adds Zelda-like elements to it. Your standard RPG you walk around a room, entrance to exit, fighting random battles, In Golden Sun, every room is a Zelda-like puzzle trial. If you don't have the means to solve a puzzle now, you solve it later when you collected more items. And Djin's add more depth to your RPG battles than other standard RPGs because a Djin affects your stats and sometimes your entire move list. And Goldensun games are direct moment-to-moment sequals from each other, something rare in any game. Goldensun is one of the most unique RPG's even though some people don't even realize it yet. Its ever-deserving as a Best RPG title.

    Anyways, moving past that, yeah, Sonic Chronicles was a bit random. Who would honestly nominate any sonic game ever made being the best of a genre?

    And ignoring the title, Final Fantasy 12, IMO is the best/my favorite game of all time, let alone Best RPG game.

    But all that aside, I'm getting a bit annoyed with the "Favorite/Best of" topics.

    Yeah, I guess Golden 1 & 2 aren't out yet. The OP was misleading because he said best RPG, not best RPG exclusively on DS.

    My point exactly. Anyway, let's stay on topic. If they wanted to discuss RPG's in general, we have a General Console Discussion place for that.

    I wonder how many non-DS topics have been posted in DS topics by people who don't read too well. I would guess a large number.

    TENCHNICALLY the OP didn't limit the search to ds rpgs so yeah....golden sun is a pretty good recommendation.


    this topic is pretty useless since pretty much every rpg is already on the rpg list....

    anyway!I suggest going over to gamerankings and search for ds rpgs

    Gamerankings? Really? The ratings they give aren't good at all, they rate great games really bad, et vice versa. Nothing to like about them. You're best off just Googling 'best DS RPGs', although then you might miss out on a bunch of J-only RPGs.
