The list of 20 RPGs the everyone must play from Kotaku.
Here is my progress on the list.
1. Final Fantasy VI – So agree, played at release, but did not finish.
2. Illusion of Gaia – Played and completed.
3. Lunar: Eternal Blue Complete – Played and completed on Playstation, sorry Sega CD.
4. Ni no kuni – Played and completed.
5. Phantasy Star IV – Played but not finished.
6. Chrono Trigger – Played and beat, but only some of the endings.
7. Persona 4 – Have not played, but added to backlog.
8. Final Fantasy VII – Played but not finished.
9. Xenogears – Played but not finished.
10. The Legend of Heroes: Trail in the Sky – Have not played, but added to backlog.
11. Earthbound – Have not played.
12. Radiant Historia – Have not played.
13. Lufia 2 – Have not played.
14. Suikoden 2 – Have not played.
15. Super Mario RPG – Played but not finished.

17. Dragon Quest VIII – Played but not finished.
18. Final Fantasy Tactics – OMG yes, but not finished.
19. Kingdom Hearts 2 – Played and finished.
20. Secret of Mana – Played and finished.
So my rank is 14 out of 20 played and 7 of 20 completed. The completionist in my hurts on RPGs before final dungeons. (Screw you Chocobo breeding)
The few games I think might have deserved mention on the list:
Tactics Ogre: Let us cling together
(These might just be variations of Final Fantasy Tactics which I can respect)
(Never played myself, but so many of them figured they must be doing something right)
