    Title says it all. I was looking at a few. Wich one last the longest? The best graphics? The best story? The most armor and weapons to use.

    It's kinda hard to determine which game is the 'best' when you use it. Currently I think there are only a few which I can name of. Chronicles of Inotia, Vay and Arvale: Journey of Illusion. So far I had only purchased Arvale and liked it. The dialogue is pretty humor.

    Which last the longest? Arvale has 20+ hours of gameplay. Vay is a port of a 1994 RPG classic and has a similar play time. Chronicles of Inotia has a bit less physical content, but the sheer amount of grinding and item hunting you do adds a great deal of time.

    Which has the best graphics? Arvale was built for mobile gaming, so the graphics are smooth and streamlined to the device as expected. Chronicles of Inotia has an excellent graphic style, but has a low framerate which bothers some players. Vay is a straight port with widescreen graphics and touchscreen controls.

    Which has the best story? Arvale has tremendous humor and draws you into the world well by giving you numerous dialog options when speaking to NPCs. The plot and quests are the standard fair, but are scripted very well. Chronicles of Inotia has little to no story. When there is story, you can count on several misspellings in the text. Vay has an excellent story, as it is part of the reason it was ported in the first place.

    So to sum things up: each game has their own strong suits. You honestly cannot go wrong with any of the three choices, I have them all.

    If you're looking for an RPG in the vein of Final Fantasy, Vay is your best bet

    i personally like Inotia. it's 8 bucks but its a pretty good deal for the amount of gameplay. they could have a game like this on the DS and sell it for $30.

    You can't go wrong with Vay. Have loved this game since it's SegaCD days.

    Some of it's nostalgia, but it truely is a fantastic game.

    i would go with vay, its one of my favorite apps, i diding get arvale instead i bought chronicles of inotia and so far its fun but it takes time to get used to dying when fighting everything at such a low level, with vay u get more for what you pay for, fun gameplay, fairly good story, and very corny acting which is funny

    My vote is for Vay first, then Chronicles. Arvale is fun, but I found the size of the print on screen for dialogue and story to be so slow that after playing for a while I would get a headache. If it wasn't for that fact, I would reverse Chronicles and Arvale - I kind of think that the story is important to an RPG, and Arvale's is better then Chronicles.

    I think Vay got it best so far, though.

    When the best RPG game you've got in 2009 is a port from 1994 game, it's definitely saying something...

    Yes, we need more match-3, sudoku, and of course retro-games *sarcasm

    Will we ever get a decent RPG? At least by 2007 Nintendo DS standard.
