List Rules RPGs released on the Sega Saturn. They do not have to be exclusives.

No Sega Saturn collection can be complete without including at least some of the best Sega Saturn RPGs of all time. If you're having trouble deciding which ones qualify for that title, then see what other gamers have voted as their favorite Saturn RPGs ever.

Below is a ranking of the greatest Sega Saturn RPGs ever released, including both exclusive and non-exclusive titles. Unfortunately, that still doesn't mean you'll see Final Fantasy on this list because SquareSoft never thought of releasing a game with Sega. Sadly, you'll only see their 32-bit RPGs on this list of the best PlayStation RPGs of all time.

Instead, you'll see games such as Shining Force III, which is one of the greatest tactical RPGs of all time. While it was never was as popular as other RPG franchises, it was a great game in its own right. It's just too bad that the Saturn never got a true Phantasy Star sequel. 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 RPGs for the Sega Saturn. So vote for the best Sega Saturn video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
