Which RPG has the best story?

My personal pick:

I really like the depth of the mythology in Battle for Wesnoth, and the overlapping stories in Chaos Rings.

Haven't played Chaos Rings yet, but I vote for FF1 because of the epic plot twist at the very end.

Chaos Rings for me. At first, it might be a little underwhelming, but when you finish at least the first couple's ending, it gets really engaging (as well as a genre change for me). I like the mystery at the beginning, and slowly getting to know each couple's relationships with each other. There's also the true endings for each couple and the big fat finale ending (both of which I have yet to get through) I guess for more closure in the story, among other things. Overall I think it's a pretty original storyline too, it's more of a personal quest than a massively epic adventure to save the universe.

How's the story overall? I'm hungry for more quality RPGs, and I'm thinking about getting it.

I only had room for 10 choices, so I picked the 10 most popular.

Can't vote because it's missing "Vay" and "The Quest"

Vay has had the best story imho

No Vay listed? It had the original story with some funny modernization in it. Was pretty silly, but a lot of fun.

The list is pretty useless. You prefer to split up Inotia, Zenonia and FF into 2 instead of adding other brands to bring more variety into it.
