Updated on November 6, 2014

What PS3 RPG game do you own?

We all know that new RPG games for PS3 are getting released from time to time but only few of them stay on the limelight. Now the PS3 is a not-so-cheap gaming console, so if you're into RPG games, you might as well play the best RPG games! Here I've listed 10 of the best RPG games for PS3 and ranked accordingly. The ones listed here are based on reviews and being bestsellers on the RPG game genre to make it easier for you to choose.

This page will be updated every month to summarize the best PS3 RPG games for that month.

Top 10: Fallout 3

Date released: October 28, 2008

Fallout 3 is an overwhelmingly enthralling RPG game for PS3 that contains ambiguity that is both sinister and full of meaning. The game play itself makes up for its limited fight options and visual imperfections.

Independence makes this game stand where it is right now. No time and object constraints when it comes to checking out whatever you would want to check out. The missions can be incredibly complex and can be completed in different ways.

Top 9: 3D Dot Game Heroes

Date released: May 11, 2010

Pixelized and wait...what? Zelda-like game? Not really but yes really. Almost all reviews point this game to have so much similarity with Legends of Zelda. But it is still fun in its own way. Would you really care if it is a Zelda rip-off? You will have the same amount of fun you had in a different way but still get to play as an adventurer tasked to defeat evil.

Nostalgic and fun at the same time. The graphics, the storyline and everything else brings you back to the good old times of the first consoles.

Top 8: Dragon Age: Origins

Date released: November 3, 2009

Bioware seems to have been on a roll in getting their RPG releases onto the top 10 list. Working hard as they could, the game developers seem to be obsessed in making good experiences for players who wants to get into a life full of adventure and plays a hero for all individuals in need of help (though only on video games that is) so this title, Dragon Age: Origins makes it to the list. Now this game is no ordinary one. It can eat gazillions of hours of your life. Is it addicting? Yes. Complex? Well, yes. Which is another reason why it would take some time playing this game, this one right here is not just like the other RPG, it's actually a bit complicated. Though the plot is somewhat repetitive, you would never get tired of dealing with the Darkspawn creatures.

Like Skyrim, this game could be the type of game that you would go back to and check out after a long time of not playing it. It's a great game with great gameplay but more often than not, the events are easily predictable.

Top 7: Eternal Sonata

Date released: October 21, 2008

Eternal Sonata is dazzling by itself either by playing this game or even just looking at it. It is indeed a fascinating RPG game. Though the game has a diminutive amount of traveling around and the quests are not so challenging.

This game was also released to other gaming consoles but it looks way much better on PS3. The game's pleasant chronicle is inhabited by an engaging set of characters that matches the beautiful soundtrack.

Top 6: Final Fantasy XIII

Date released: March 9, 2010

When you say RPG game, Final Fantasy will always be mentioned. This Final Fantasy game may be lacking but still considered to be an extraordinary legend.

The game has a set of varied yet brilliant characters in a beautiful imaginative world that is brought to life by a gripping tale. The entertaining yet challenging combat will surely keep you challenged.

Top 5: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Date released: February 7, 2012

One of the best RPG games for PS3 released in the year 2012. This game is certainly a must play. The story line itself is written by one of the best game authors alive. Though this is not a good game start for newbies, hardcore gamers will certainly enjoy its complexity. The environment graphics blend in very well with the character graphics. The voice acting is awesome too. Oh and the gameplay? Pleasurable.

Though you may find the character lip syncing to be actually out of sync, it is not enough reason for this game to be a non-playable game.

Top 4: Elder Scrolls: Oblivion

Date released: March 20, 2007

Definitely a wonderful RPG game that should never be missed by a PS3 owner, which is The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. What seems to be the only flaw of this game? The faintly irritating presentation matter.

The game has a very big and dazzling world to explore mixed with an appealing tale and a whole day's worth of fun side quests. Excellent music? Check! Excellent voice acting? Check!

Top 3: Demon's Souls

Date released: October 6, 2009

This ground-breaking RPG game did not make it as one of the year's finest games for no reason at all. Despite of being exceedingly complex and harshly tough, the game is still outright interesting.

The game has astounding and matchless online features with mysterious and attractive levels that devour your full attention. Computer graphics are close to perfect mixed with systematic fighting strategies.

Top 2: Mass Effect 3

Date released: March 6, 2012

Need I say more? Really? You still want to know why this ended up on the top list? Well anyway, Commander Shepard really satisfied a lot of gamers out there. He's got a greater challenge ahead compared to fighting the Collectors from Mass Effect 2. Now you would not be fighting just for the Earthlings but also for the whole galactic race.

If you have played Mass Effect 2 and have been awed, wait till you experience Mass Effect 3. It was able to surpass its prequel.

Top 1: The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

Date released: November 14, 2011

This game, despite its numerous bugs, is PERFECT. The most awesome RPG one could ever play. There is just so much to do here. This is the type of game that will make you want to skip class or work or even a potential date! The menu system is just elegant, the graphics are just so detailed you will never get bored exploring, the sound effects makes everything feel like its real and even if you have finished the game, you would still want to come back.

Even non-FPS players played this and loved it. So despite of its bug-filled system, people still clamor to play this game.

      would fast travel be a prbleom on the mega server? i mean what if every one wanted to go to Winterfell or another major city? If they do have fast travel in the game i feel they would have to make it a substantial price so people dont overload a city. just a thought correct me if im wrong.

      Eternal Sonata was a fun game (and I love the soundtrack). Not to mention I love classical piano and Chopin is one of my favorites, very cool that he is a character in this game. Loved it!

      FFXIII was hit and miss, there are things I love about it, but yes I didn't like that I finished the story line before completing the side quests (and there are a lot). XIII-2 was a great game except the way they ended it (sorry not gonna spoil it for someone else). That really irked me, but I am hoping that Lightening Returns will give the FF series some redemption in my eyes.

      I don't know much about the others as I am a turn-based RPG fan and they seem to be going by the wayside. I tried to play Elder Scrolls but I just couldn't get into it.

      @BrandonCase: Kingdoms of Amalur is extremely fun but very unrefined. Story is a tad cliched but gameplay is crazy fun. Tons of content and a steal at the price it's at by now. Not nearly as in depth as a game like Skyrim but the fight gameplay is well designed and a thoroughly enjoyable game.

      Love Dragon Age, Fallout, Mass Effect, etc.

      I'll have to check out Amleter...

      I couldn't even finish it, despite being so excited for it to come out.

      I hated Kingdoms of Amleter. I am surprised to.even see it on the list.

      I actually really loved FFXIII. Probably my favorite game on the PS3

      FF13 was long irritating and its easy for you to die as well as the fact you are going to be grinding for a couple of weeks just to get the perfect weapon, not to mention you don't get to free roam until the end of the game pretty much unlike its child 13-2 which is a whole lot better. Skyrim is ok Amalur should have got a higher vote I think

      FFXIII was so disapointing. I nearly screamed in frustration after buying/playing it.

      Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning IS AN AMAZING GAME! Had never heard of it before accidentally running across it, while most games have an estimated game play time of 40 hours, Reckoning is in the hundreds. Extremely expansive world to explore, Great story line, oodles of side missions to keep you busy even after the main story is through.

      Reckoning is my favorite game for the PS3 to date, MUST try!

      Oblivion os probablly the best game i ever played but skyrim is like its downsyndrome cousin but good list except skyrim

      ME3 is great, but I think Skyrim and Oblivion, and Demon's Souls all beat it. Skyrim and Oblivion are the two best rpg games I've played in a long time, especially in terms of visual aspects and effects. Operation is easier with Skyrim though. Great list!

      @vineliner57: I hear you. I was FF all the way up to 12 then Elderscrolls took the lead. I enjoyed 13 and Oblivion but Skyrim just hit it home

      Always been a Final Fantasy fan, but The Elder Scrolls series may be a little bit better, especially Skyrim.

      Final Fantasy will always be the best RPG saga, but it disappointed me in the PS3⦠And to the one who said that every final fantasy game is linear⦠wtf? Have YOU played FFXIII? I finished it months ago. It's literally a hallway. A LONG HALLWAY. Even the programmers said it's not an RPG game, but a dungeon crawler. You can't compare FFVII with FFXIII⦠it's an insult...

      @PROmotionsLLC: Then you must not have played a final fantasy game since FF7 :-) The game has become so linear since then.

      No love for Dragon Age: Origins? That's probably my favorite PS3 game, period... while Awakening left a lot to be desired, I have never cared more about the characters in a work of fiction as I had in Origins. Besides, it's *endlessly* replayable... people acclaim the Elder Scrolls for replay value, but that's all the same, really; the only difference is *how* you kill the Draugar and banish Alduin. For Origins, the different relationships and dialogue that can be experienced are just amazing (imho).

      @Shanna Redwind: Dragon Age: Origins is by far the best story I've ever seen in a video game. My perfect game would be the stunning open world of Skyrim plus the engaging story and awesome characters of DA:O. One can wish.

      @anonymous: i update the list monthly, last month ME2 was on the list, but you know people vote on the current games that they think is best. i would have to agree with you though but my list is not based on personal preference :(

      Mass Effect 3 is listed and not Mass Effect 2? Give me some of what you're smoking, would you? ME3 was nothing compared to its prequel.

      You're list leaves out

      a few excellent games that deserved more media.

      I highly recommend the following games to be played.

      1. Valkyria Chronicles

      2. Star Ocean: The Last Hope International

      3. Resonance of Fate

      I'm having a great time playing Dragon Age Origins right now. It's got one of the best storylines I've ever played. I love the byplay between the characters. It really adds depth to the story. I finished Fallout 3 and loved it as well. I was working on Fallout New Vegas, and it's a great game, but one of the buggiest things I've ever played. I've set it aside out of frustration for the moment.

      Nice Lens.

      Great choices here, but Demon's Souls is the one that stands out here as a timeless classic.
