The Super Nintendo was home to a library of amazing role-playing experiences, punctuated by huge titles that are still beloved today like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI. There are many niche or sleeper titles that are easy to miss when dutifully probing the annals of RPG history on the platform as well, so today I present a challenge - what's your favorite RPG on the SNES?

You can pick one of the big ones, but if you want a more interesting exercise, dance around the Chrono Triggers, FF's, Secret of Mana, and Earthbounds of the world and maybe grab a Lufia or Breath of Fire out of the ether. Barring the big ones, I think my favorite is Robotrek - crafting my own custom battle bots was a super refreshing experience, I went back to the rental store a few times to get that one done.
