We all know that Role Playing games rank superior among any other genres ever created by man. The question though is: Which one is the best? Are the games of the past better than the ones being created currently by developers today? Some argue that games are becoming too focused on graphics while gameplay fails hard.
Right now, no one in the right mind would argue that Final Fantasy XIII is better than Chrono Trigger. Even though the graphics are a million times better and there is actual voice acting and breath taking cinematics, it lacks the heart and soul that Chrono Trigger brought upon its release. The musical score of Chrono Trigger is even better than that of most modern RPG's produced today, even though it is ancient.
Final Fantasy has been one of the greatest RPG series ever produced, and even if they create games of lower quality, people will still buy them to see how they rank among the others. Final Fantasy VII was the pivotal point when RPG's became well known around the world.
