Same rules apply. I’ve cross referenced and double checked all the games on this list to confirm where and when they came out. North American release dates only and if I was unable to play the game, then I can’t count it. Again, I apologize if your favorite game didn’t make the top 5 and it could be because of what I just explained, but there are 43 games this year, so let’s hop to it!

Surprisingly, this year there were only 10 games and only about half of them were good. This was also the year of the second worst King’s Quest game ever, the absolute worst being Mask of Eternity. It was a tough call for the #3 spot also. #2 and #1 were pretty easy to pick, though. Let’s do it!
There are 37 games this year. This was one of the toughest years I’ve encountered so far…possibly the toughest. In advance, I’d like to say that making the top 5 list this time around was NOT easy and as a result, a lot of great games totally tied for multiple places. This was a year of many highly successful RPGs.
Level 5 and Square Enix are at it again with another fantastic RPG that incorporates much of the old with a little new to create a traditional, fun, and often tough little masterpiece. The very fact that this was all done on the DS makes it that much more impressive. If you love traditional RPGs and/or have always been a fan of the Dragon Quest games, this is a title you absolutely cannot afford to pass up.
