The RPG Sanctum - #4: The Best RPG Platform

RosestormRosestorm Host of The SectorcastFull Members
edited March 2011 in Latest Updates
Of all platforms that either exist or have existed, which had the best RPGs? Do any consoles surpass the the eternal platform that is the PC? Our panelists will tap their inner fanboy/girl to determine an answer. They did this and some other stuff happened.

Be sure to leave any feedback for us on this thread and leave some reviews on itunes. The next show topic is whether there are any mmo's (either released or upcoming) that have the chops to topple WoW. If you want to submit content, e-mail me a mp3 file to rosestorm90@gmail.com, if you need instructions on how to make one e-mail me and I will be more than willing to help. If you have any ideas for future shows feel free to post them here or e-mail me.

A lie would be considered the truth if only more people believed it.

    Apologies in advance for my potty mouth. When I get into certain ranting modes my mouth holds no bounds. :( and it's very wrong of me to be so foul representing the site. I generally a nice lady, I swear!

    Also I am not funny. I apologize for that too.

    In a world of infinite money it's the most powerful machine, but in a world of limited resources it's whatever system allows you to create grand epics without spending billions.

    One hour in and I'm not sure the topic has actually been discussed yet.

    This podcast really was a case one minute we'd be on topic, then the topic would turn into "omg yeah, that's an awesome game, or ewww that sucks" and then it derails, topic comes back, derails further, and then we go wth the typical Marge Simpson ending for things which is "they all win!"

    This. I am shocked - SHOCKED - that it seemingly wasn't even mentioned.

    Then again, I'm a little biased considering what are #1 and 2 on my GOAT list are... (Chrono Trigger/Earthbound).

    Two people arguing for PS1 and no one for SNES? I just started listening and don't know if I can take it. :P

    It'd be a close call between SNES & PS2 for me if we're counting US releases. If we're including foreign releases as well, SNES/SF would win easily.

    Dang, now I really wish I hadn't missed this episode. XD Ah well, me being there would not have helped with the many tangents.

    I actually would have argued for the DS specifically, but that's because I don't own a PSP. It's the system I own the most RPGs, heck, the most games for.

    I haven't listened to this yet, but I would pick the PS1. It may have not had the most RPGs of any platform, but to me it had the most fun and memorable.
