Nice list marz. Lotta the same picks as me. Far East of Eden is an interesting addition.

Bone, I researched many of your entries. Your list was quite an education.

Tanks.

I like how we both stopped at PSO. I suppose there may be some JRPGs released in the 21st century but I am not aware of them.

I can't think of any that are legitimately groundbreaking or sales-breaking though. It's mostly just sup-ing up older ideas and making them more 3D-tastic and shinier. We could have a rotating final entry for the one with the best graphics I guess :p
