Which game would you say has replaced Final Fantasy as the premier RPG franchise?


Final Fantasy owned the RPG genre for a decade but has since lost its swagger. Which new franchise has since taken over that pedestal?

    The sad thing for me is I feel the Fable series had the most potential to do it but for one reason or another they keep fumbling the ball.

    The first Shadow Hearts was one of the best I ever played. Nice choice.

    Hard to argue with that. I would say Elder Scrolls and perhaps Fallout come close in terms of world building but their stories don't even compare to FF. That is the sad state of the RPG. It's too focused on big worlds and not the stories they tell

    Mass Effect would be my pick in terms of story and characters for sure. I only wish they were longer so you could do more but that is a great pick, Tony.
