PSXE Poll Update: RPG Fans Have A Tremendous Showing

Wow, this is one poll result that has really surprised us: we have an inordinate number of RPG fans around here!

Role-playing is hardly the most popular genre in the video game industry (based on sales numbers and not review scores), as action/adventure, sports, and FPSs typically rule the charts. But being an RPG-lover at heart, it's fantastic to know so many fans are avid readers of PSXE; it just brings us all a little closer. 'wipes tear from eye' But seriously, even though the majority of you do say action/adventure is your favorite genre, it only won by a very small margin over the second-place RPG category, which even beat out FPS. ...which makes me believe we may be the only major gaming site in existence where such a poll will say more readers enjoy RPGs over FPSs; that almost seems like an impossibility in this day and age. But we'd also like to add that we have many intelligent and knowledgeable members, and I hate to say this, but...well, I'm sorry, but it just seems that the average RPG fan is smarter than the average sports or action fan. Obviously, this isn't an all-encompassing figure and it certainly isn't based on anything but my own observations and experiences, but I stick to it. So it kinda makes sense.

Anyway, considering how many RPG fans we have out there, we just thought we'd stay in that realm and ask about your favorite RPG. It's similar to the Best of the Best Polls we ran, but those were console-specific; this is overall: what's your pick? Is it Final Fantasy VII? Something more old-school like Chrono Trigger? Or a newer game like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion? We tried to pick the 10 best-rated RPGs of all time for this poll, so apologies if your selection isn't included.  Oh, and before everyone asks, NO, we don't consider Legend of Zelda to be an RPG.
