1. Chrono Trigger – In my opinion, this game has no flaws: Beautiful art style, engaging storyline, great soundtrack.

2.Final Fantasy III – Also known as Final Fantasy VI in Japan, this game is one of the best of the series and features complex branching plotlines and fantastic music.

3. Super Mario RPG – This game added a ton of depth to the Mario Universe and gave real personalities to Mario characters that had never been given dialogue before. This game is filled with charm and it’s a must-have for Mario fans.

4. Earthbound – Also known as Mother 2 in Japan. This is a strange, quirky, and funny rpg that sold very poorly in the US at launch. The strength of this game is its brilliantly written dialogue and its surrealistic atmosphere.

5. Secret of Mana – This action rpg features a deep magic system and a very memorable soundtrack.

I know there are a ton more that didn’t make my list (and btw I personally don’t classify A Link to the Past as an rpg, which is why I didn’t include it)

Which Super Nintendo rpg’s are your favorites?

    Agree with all the choices, though Breath of Fire also deserves an honorary mention for being close to making the list!

    No one will ever argue with this list. All fantastic games. Chrono Trigger is amazing.

    A link to the past was my first game ever, bout you’re right, it isn’t an rpg, I would like to call it a platformer… And to be honest, I’d like to know why there are no other games like it?
