    Been quite away from the gaming scene for a while and i feel like giving it another shot
    What do you think are the best RPG's/Adventure games for each one of these systems, i know we enthusiasts like sharing the love!
    NES, SNES, N64, GC, WII, PSX, PS2, PS3, GBC, GBA, NDS, 3DS, PSP, PC and a decent android phone
    And try not to make this turn into a flame war... Wait who am I kidding?

    I think this list is a good start.

    Me personally?
    The World Ends With You (DS/iOS)
    Kingdom Hearts series (GBA/3DS/PSP/PS2/PS3)
    Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii/N3DS)
    Fable series (Xbox, Xbox360, PC)
    Quest for Glory series (PC) It's a point and click adventure series with RPG elements
    Diablo series (PC, PS3)
    Chrono Trigger (SNES, DS)
    Persona series (PS1, PS2, PS3, 3DS)

    There's a ton more, but those are the ones coming off the top of my head. The SNES, DS, PSP, and Vita have a ton of RPGs, whether you want ARPG/Western RPGS or JRPGs.

    I can only answer based on the games I played, I can't tell which is the best of the console but only which is MY best. and only based on my limited played games.

    I'm only picking favs from jrpg (not adventure/action/zeldaesque/metroidvaniesque games)

    NES Shadow Gate (if it can be considered RPG. if not, Mother/EB Zero)
    SNES Final Fantasy 6
    N64 ---NA---- (I played only "Holy Magic Century" RPG but I can't really think about it as the "best" lol. Goemon might be the best one if considered RPG.)
    GC ---NA---- (still have a lot of games to play on GC. RPG I want : sky of Arcadia and Tales of)
    WII Xenoblade
    PSX Xenogears
    PS2 ---NA---- (never completed any or played long enough to have an opinion... so sad). If Action/adventure games counts, Okami.
    PS3 Star Ocean 4 (the only RPG I played. Still have to play ni no kuni and continue Sonata)
    GB/GBC Seiken Densetsu (Mystic quest)
    GBA Golden Sun
    NDS Glory of Heracles
    3DS Bravely Default (only RPG I have)
    PSP Brave story
    PC ---Don't remember playing any RPG, yoda story counts? lol--- edit : oh, fallout, but I never played more than 2-3H

    but again, it's not really representative, because you don't know which other games I played to understand why I selected these ones.
