- Final Fantasy Series
- Brought RPGs to the non-RPG playing masses.
- Chrono Trigger and Cross
- Time-travelling RPG with an interesting combat system.
- Wild Arms
- Fantastic RPG series with a unique way of doing things.
- Dragon Warrior
- A simple, but successful, RPG made by Nintendo.
- Star Ocean
- Breath of Fire
- Created by Capcom, this series is a masterpiece.
- Earthbound / Mother
- Simply the most original and strange RPG series to date. Unfortunately, no new Earthbound / Mother games are reported to be in production. Sadly, the series seems dead.
