    What is your favorite classic 2D RPG(s)?

    The title says it all. So what's your favorite 2D RPG(s)? =]

    Mine would be:

    Shining Force I & II (Genesis)
    Shining Force III (Saturn)
    Phantasy Star II & IV (Genesis)
    Final Fantasy VI (SNES)
    Landstalker (Genesis)
    Tales of Phantasia (SNES)
    Chrono Trigger (SNES)
    Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)

    No particular order, love them all!

    Illusion of Gaia. I love the 7 2D FFs, Zelda, and all the other classics, but that one deserves the most attention.

    A Link to the Past is a big favorite of mine. Golden Sun is close, I spent many fun hours on my GBA with that game.

    Haha love it! Shining Force was the first RPG I've ever played and it's the series that got me hooked on the genre =p

    Mother 3, Earthbound, and all of the Pokemon games. I haven't played a whole lot of 2D RPGs, but those ones are all awesome.

    And I know this gets pointed out in every thread like this, but Zelda is not really an RPG.

    Suikoden II would be my favorite, though I love the entire series. Other than that, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Legend of Mana, and Grandia are some of my other favorites.

    Final Fantasy VI and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past are probably my two favorite games of all time. I'm currently in the midst of playing the virtual console version of FFVI on the Wii.

    I'm not even going to try and list all of my favourite 2d rpgs and instead list my favourite one in recent memory.
    Radiant Historia. I actually liked the protagonist, which is an incredibly rare thing for me with jrpgs.

    A Link to the Past is not an RPG.

    Off the top of Skelington's head he would say Pokemon and Fire Emblem.

    I'd argue that Fire Emblem isn't an RPG either, since while it's certainly story oriented, it's more of strategy game than anything :P

    As for my favorite 2d RPG game, I'd love to say Paper Mario for the sake of puns, but prolly the first generation pokemon games.

    Nah, it falls under the genre of "Tactical RPG." It's in the name!

    But dammit, Skelington hates himself for forgetting Paper Mario. Those games are like, the best rpgs ever. After pokemon. Nay! Rivaling pokemon!

    This most definitely makes me want to get back into Pokémon again after everyone keeps talking about it =3
