Dateline November 23, 2002
These are my purely personal ratings of the top 10 RPG's for Playstation, Playstation 2, and Personal Computer, with #1 being my alltime favorite, then descending in rank to #10.  (Since the XBox and Gamecube have only 1 RPG between them, Morrowind released first on the PC, they have no rankings.) Please note some classic RPG's are still among my favorites. Also, I will periodically update if new release crack the top 10 for any platform.
So you'll know where I'm coming from, I've been playing RPG's on all platforms for over 20 years, and have written 16 published strategy guides for Bradygames, Prima, and Sybex, including The Official Xenogears Strategy Guide, 2 Final Fantasy VII Strategy Guides, The Unofficial Final Fantasy Tactics Strategy Guide, The Daggerfall Chronicles, The RPG Companion, and The Official Lufia and the Fortress of Doom Strategy Guide.
If you'd like your own rankings posted, please send me an email at rwartow@yahoo.com. In the event enough users wish their rankings posted, I will come up with some kind of overall average scheme.
