ActionTrip columnist Ure "Vader" Paul offers his ten most influential RPGs of all time. This is his list:
09. Final Fantasy Series
08. Baldur's Gate Series
07. Planescape: Torment
05. Ultima series
04. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
02. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
01. World of WarCraft
You can read his reasoning here. I've got to say, I'm really puzzled by the addition of Fable over, say, System Shock 2 or Deus Ex. I think System Shock 2 is probably more deserving of a place as 'influential' because working through the game at the moment I can see the many ways Deus Ex was inspired by SS2. I also think the Final Fantasy series is too low on the list. JRPGs are a huge market and it's hard to find a JRPG title not directly influenced by the Final Fantasy franchise.
What would your list be?
