The greatest pen and paper RPGs (or role-playing games) don't require any kind of fancy technology. No, these RPGs are much more like traditional board games. When in doubt, go for the classics, like RuneQuest, Traveller and the perennially popular Dungeons & Dragons. This list includes a lot of favorites, but it isn't complete, so feel free to add the pen and paper/tabletop RPGs that you love playing the most, too. Vote up the best, vote down the worst and rerank this list any way you want.

If you're looking for something new to play, why not give some of these great, table top RPGs a whirl? It's no accident that RPGs like 'Call of Cthulhu' have been around for a long, long time. Despite the emergence of some incredibly impressive RPG video games, these tabletop RPGs keep us coming back for more. Tabletop RPGs force us to communicate with each other, rather than being glued to a computer or TV screen for hours on end.

Enjoy this list of great table-talk role-playing games, and don't forget to vote for the best tabletop RPG below!

<![CDATA[The Best Video Games of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-games-of-all-time
These are the greatest games of all time, as voted on and reranked by gamers like yourself. Video games are more popular than ever. Since the early '80 when gaming systems like Atari, Nintendo and Sega first took arcade favorite and made them available to a wider audience, video games have become a part of the pop culture lexicon. Many of the best video games are action and adventure games, usually with an ultimate goal to reach in the end. That could mean rescuing a princess, like in games like the Super Mario franchise and Legend of Zelda, or it could mean battling it out with iconic villains like in Goldeneye. Sometime whooping some butt is fun and if that's your favorite type of video game, then you would be partial to the Grand Theft Auto franchise, Contra and Mortal Kombat as the best video games.

The 00's produced some of the best video games of all time. Halo, Assassin's Creed and The Sims have remained popular ten year after their respective releases. People love playing these games and they've taken their place as classics within the gaming community. 

Vote for your favorite games on this Ultimate List of The Best Video Games of All Time. If there are any of your favorite top video games that aren't on this list, feel free to add them.

<![CDATA[The Greatest RPG Video Games Ever Made]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-greatest-rpg-video-games-ever-made
This list shows the ranking of the best pure Role-Playing Games, Action-RPG hybrids and MMORPG's of all time, as voted on by the Ranker Community. The popularity of role-playing games far predates video game technology entirely, and many of the genre's standards, settings and concepts continue to draw strong influence from the pen-and-paper games of the past (particularly the granddaddy of them all, Dungeons & Dragons, or D&D.)

In traditional Role-Playing Games, the player controls a character in a fictional world or setting, and takes a strong hand in determining how that character chooses to progress through the environment. This can involve determining the character's nature and outlook, his or her development through quests and missions and potentially joining up with other characters, either NPC or representing other human players. They tend to be more character and plot-driven games in many ways, as opposed to games that put more emphasis on stealth, puzzle-solving or combat. In some ways, new technology has simply made RPG's easier to organize and faster to play through, removing the need for a "gamemaster" and reliance on dice or other physical means of determining game outcomes.

Many of the most popular RPGs are part of a larger franchise, set in a familiar world that has been established over the course of numerous games (and sometimes tie-in novels, short films or other media.) The "Final Fantasy" RPG franchise is perhaps the most significant and long-standing in video game history, and in fact at this point has branched out beyond traditional role-playing games to include entires focused on tactical role-playing, action role-playing, MMORPG's, racing games, third person shooters and even rhythm and fighting games. It has also inspired numerous animated films, tie in novels and comic books.

(Unlike many other RPG series that are all based in a single setting or universe - such as the "Elder Scrolls" series Tamriel or Azeroth from Blizzard's "Warcraft" games - "Final Fantasy" entries tend to take place in different settings and have sharply distinguished plotlines.)

<![CDATA[The Best Video Game Franchises of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-video-game-franchises/ranker-games
If someone asked you what the greatest video game franchise of all time was, how would you answer? If you grew up in the 80's and 90's, classic franchises like Mario, Sonic, Final Fantasy, and The Legend of Zelda might appeal to you more. However today's gamers have insanely good franchises to sink their teeth into as well, including Grand Theft Auto, God of War, Halo, Dues Ex, and so much more. This list takes your opinion into account, rather than sales, popularity, and reviews, so vote for your favorite game franchises no matter how mainstream or highly-rated they are. All genres are included here, whether it's a RPG, platformer, first person shooter or an adventure game.

You can add any franchise that's missing to this list of the greatest game series of all time, as long as there have been 3 or more games in the franchise so far. That means we're not including games like Minecraft, League of Legends, and DotA.

<![CDATA[The Best Two Player Games for Super Nintendo]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-two-player-games-for-snes/chris-abraham
For a system known for its single player experience, there are still a ton of good co-op games for SNES. If you had to pick, what would you say is the best co-op game for Super Nintendo? There were amazing two player racing games, brawlers, RPGs, and more that were a blast to play with a friend (or little brother who always had to be player two). Vote up your favorite two player SNES games that you love playing with friends, and add any games to the list you think we missed!

Did you know Kirby Super Star was the first multiplayer Kirby game? The coolest part was that player two could be a multitude of characters, depending on which enemy Kirby swallowed and then transformed into his helper. Super Mario Kart also launched on SNES, which paved the way for tons of future racing games, both in and outside of the Mario Kart franchise.

<![CDATA[The Most Fun Card Games]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/most-fun-card-games
List of card games that are fun for groups of friends and family. Whether you're playing poker professionally or simply enjoying a casual game of Go Fish with the family, the most fun card games provide hours of entertainment for all ages. These popular card games are the top ones out there. There are numerous fun card games, each with their own rules and gameplay such as two-player card games, drinking games, fun card games for 3 and multi-player card games allowing plenty of choices for everyone. Perhaps the best part is that many card games can be played nearly anywhere with only a standard deck of playing cards.

Though there is a bit of debate as to the origin, many historians believe that playing cards were invented in China during the 9th century. The first card game followed soon after, as did hundreds of other card games.

What are the best card games? Names of the most fun card games include simple games like solitaire or Cards Against Humanity and strategic card games like poker or euchre. But which card game is the most fun? You be the judge! Add names of card games to this list and vote for your favorite games below.

<![CDATA[The Best Classic Arcade Games]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-classic-arcade-games
The best classic arcade games include not only the big, big, BEEG cabinet coin-op arcade games from the crazy 80s, but also many of the best video games of all time. Now played on tiny portable handheld consoles or popular home consoles with wireless controllers and Internet compatibility, modern video games evolved from these classic favorites. The best arcade games are still around today - albeit in updated forms - in game centers and arcades. 

These are the games that many of us remember pumping quarters into as a child as we vowed to beat that high score in the likes of 80s arcade games like Frogger or Ms. Pac-Man or sought to reach the final castle in 90s games like Super Mario Bros.

Many of the classic games here left such a lasting impression from their time in the giant arcade versions that they were later released on smaller platforms like the original Nintendo Entertainment System or remade decades later for platforms like the Nintendo Wii.

Similarly, many top arcade game titles like Paperboy and Donkey Kong spawned sequels or full series of games. Though 1980s arcade games were a far cry from today's games with 3D graphics and graphic violence, these classic games remind us of a simpler time when titles like Pong or Asteroids were enough to entertain us for a few hours. Ah, the good old days!
