List Rules RPGs released on the Nintendo GameCube. They do not have to be console exclusive.

If you love RPGs, then you'll want to know what gamers have ranked as the best GameCube RPGs ever released. It's safe to say that many GameCube owners probably have several of the top RPGs on this list in their personal collections. There's something about Nintendo role playing games that really capture your imagination and make you feel like you're part of another world.

Your party always has colorful characters, the abilities you gain from leveling up are amazing, and boss battles are usually nothing short of epic. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre.

Since some games are much better than others, we've decided to rank the best GameCube RPGs of all time. While not as iconic as the Nintendo 64 or the Wii that would follow it, the Gamecube still came out with some incredible games, especially RPGs.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling RPGs that were released for the Nintendo GameCube. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. You can vote for any of these items, from The Tales of Symphonia to Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
