5. Legacy of the Wizard

From Continue? - Warning: NSFW

Released in North America in 1989, Legacy of the Wizard offers a more action-style type of fighting instead of turn-based. Legacy of the Wizard is not your typical traditional RPG and it isn't so in-depth with keeping character stats as the other 4 listed in our top 5. You control the Drasle family (or in some North American ports, the Worzen family) to slay the dragon in the underground labyrinth.

Some may say the Legacy of the Wizard is not a top of the list RPG, but I like it a lot. It is a good start for those getting into what classic RPG's the NES has to offer, and for those who aren't quite prepared to go on an adventure that takes an average of 10 hours to complete. If you are going to play the game, find a game FAQ and keep it handy, of if you can find a copy of the instruction manual, you might want to pick that up.

Sadly, the folks at Continue didn't dig this.
