    Oobgarm, great list ---about Fullmetal Alchemist: I'd leave them in there.

    There are two games I overlooked which are in your list --- Virtua Quest and Legion: The Legend of Excalibur. I have to look them up and then decide if they should be included or not.

    RPGs are hard to define nowadays, and the lines to adventure and action adventure games are awfully thin sometimes.

    Also, some fancy highlighting might be nice (eg red for bad games, green for good ones)
    Future Tactics is certainly a unique blend of RPG-strategy elements and action lacking 'traditional' subtle and sophisticated movement calculation, but it is still more on the strategy side: a turn-based battle system and limited movement justifies to put it in the strategy genre albeit it is a new take on it.
    Then by that logic, Worms 3D definitely needs to be added to the list, and likely Worms Forts (haven't played the latter).
    I never played Worms 3D (puts his head down in shame) -- but then I have around 70% of the games on the RPG list and played only about 20% as well (puts his head up again).

    Future Tactics is certainly a down-toned RPG startegy game, but still the turn based strategy battle system and the limited strategic movement of the characters with the overall elusive 'RPG-feel' justifies that it is on the list, I think.

    I added Legion Legend of Excalibur and Virtua Qest, and removed the trial version of Everquest Online Adventures (thanks Oobgarm!, btw, the only game missing in your list is Front Mission 4).

    Since I made a list for me anyways which games I have and for which games I have or miss a strategy guide, I put an asterisk behind the games which I believe never saw a published guide. (for the titles marked as having a guide I own the guide or checked if there was a guide published)

    Please correct the titles marked as haven't a published guide if you know better!

    It is amazing, btw, how many of the Atlus published titles don't have a guide: Wizardry, Dual Hearts, Stella Deus, Tsugunai Atonement, the two Shin Megami Tensei Devil Sagas, and the new Magna Carta.

    Your assessment of RPGs strat guides is spot-on.

    Thanks for pointing out Front Mission 4; I'll have to check my guide file and find out why it wasn't on the list.

    I don't think Drakan and Demon stone should be borderline - they are action/rpg's in the baldur's gate style.

    Also, what about the 2 Dynasty Tactics games? They are strat RPGs kinda like the style of Front Mission 4

    I would also vote for Might and Magic as a strategy RPG, but I can see how its borderline.

    Also, what about Graffiti Kingdom? isn't it a magic Pengal sequel?

    Demon Stone is not an RPG. It is straight up a hack n' slash game in the shadow of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers or King Arthur. It is simply an action game in the Forgotton Realms universe.

    Graffiti Kingdom came out a month or so ago. It's the sequel to Magic Pengel.

    However, i'm not so sure those should be RPGs. If they are, better open the door to stuff like Monster Rancher.

    Ah - guess I was misinformed/thinking of something else. I'd also say that Drakan compares a lot better to the Summoner games.

    Borderline adds: Goblin Commander/Alien vs Predator Extinction. unless RTS can't be strategy rpg's.

    Also, this list is gonna get huge next year. I can think of 10-15 RPGs I'm actively anticipating, which doesnt includes games I don't know about/crappy ones tha twill also be released.

    Are you sure dark angel is an RPG ( i dont mean dark angel the tv show game)

    But I mean EBGAMES had it listed as an RPG a long time ago when they sold it and I saw it in the store once and almost bought it for 10 dollars but it really doesnt look like an RPG it sounded more like an adventure game or something.

    If it is a real RPG then it seems I dont have a complete current gen RPG collection afterall, so I kinda hope it isnt lol >.>

    Also, what makes Duel Masters different than say Yu-Gi-Oh type games? Sorry if that's an ignorant question, but I've never played any of them

    Howie, thanks for the information, I appreciate it! I corrected the King's Field guide listing.

    I added Wild Arms 4.

    Does anyone know if Unlimited Saga got a guide?

    Nah, it is more of a board/puzzle game with a RPG touch, I think.

    I posted this a little while ago, but what about Dynasty Tactics 1 and 2? I dont see how you could consider them different strat RPGs than say a front mission 4.

    I still am wondering - is dark angel REALLY an rpg? EBgames had it listed as one awhile ago and a lot of people seemed to have gone off that but to anyone who has played the game is it REALLY an rpg and not just some action/adventure game?

    How 'bout the Dynasty Tactics games? They're both strategy RPGs, and damn good ones at that.
