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

If you owned a PlayStation 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 PlayStation RPGs of all time. Some of the best RPGs ever made were released for the Playstation system, including one of the most popular RPGs ever made, Final Fantasy VII.

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