List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Nintendo Entertainment System at some point.

If you owned a NES at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few RPGs in your collection. There's something about 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 along the way 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 were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best NES RPGs of all time. NES is the console that invented modern gaming as we know it, and put out the first RPGs ever made.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling RPGs that were released for NES. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Examples of items on this poll include Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
