26 Best Role-Playing Games of all Time

Spread the love

Best RPG Games – These are the best RPGs on PC. The role-playing game is the cornerstone of PC gaming. Long before shooters or real-time strategy, the earliest PC developers replicated their tabletop RPGs on the PC, building sprawling adventures filled with orcs and wizards and foul dungeons. Those early games slowly built on their tabletop origins, and RPGs eventually became so popular, their elements spread to other genres.

Best RPG Games

Below is the list of best rpg games of 2020.

1. Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is saturated with old-school role-playing flavour. It’s the story of a blighted land, and playing it is no cakewalk. You’ll need strategy, as hack ‘n’ slash tactics don’t work here. Combat is fluid rather than turn-based, but you can pause the action at any point to issue your party orders. If you played and loved Baldur’s Gate or Icewind Dale, you’ll feel right at home.Best RPG Games 1

2. Final Fantasy 15

Final Fantasy 15, the latest entry in the long running RPG, has a special version for the PC that’s been built to make use of the power and flexibility of Windows PCs, compared to games consoles. One of the best rpg games.Best RPG Games 2

3. Nioh

Whether you like to hit hard and slow or time rapid strikes with pinpoint precision, Nioh has the perfect weapon for you. It’s a good job too, as finding a fighting style and armour that works for you is the most important thing in Nioh as well as being where its action RPG element comes from. And boy, is there a lot of action.Best RPG Games 3

4. Divinity: Original Sin 2

Outside of tabletop games, there are few RPGs that boast the liberating openness of Larian’s humongous quest for godhood. If you think you should be able to do something, you probably can, even it it’s kidnapping a merchant by using a teleportation spell and then setting fire to him with his own blood. One of the best rpg games. Almost every skill has some alternative and surprising use, sometimes more than one, whether you’re in our out of combat.Best RPG Games 4

5. Nier Automata

Hacking and slashing with all the fury of the wronged android is pretty fun as it is, but when you take advantage of the fact that those nuts and bolts that make up your body mean you can pick and choose which chips are installed in that mind of yours, then the game starts to run as smoothly as a well-oiled machine.Best RPG Games 5

6. Monster Hunter: World

Just in case the title didn’t make it obvious, in Monster Hunter: World you hunt monsters. But although the main prize is the Diablos armour set or just the thrill of the hunt itself, how you take down those beasts is what you’ll be obsessing over as soon as you face your first Great Jagras. It really is best rpg gameBest RPG Games 6

7. Anachronox

Former id Software designer Tom Hall had a vision for his first, and only, Ion Storm game. He wanted to make a turn-based RPG, like Final Fantasy, but with a distinctly Western voice. It’s that tone that makes Anachronox so brilliant: few other games of any genre have dialogue as funny as Sly Boots’ negotiation with a sock-chewing mutant warlord, and no other game we’ve played lets you add an entire planet to your party.Best RPG Games 7

8. Grim Dawn

If you’ve rinsed Diablo 2 for every magical trinket and are looking for a modern fix, here is your game. Grim Dawn is a gritty, well-made action RPG with strong classes and a pretty world full of monsters to slay in their droves. It’s the distant brooding son of Titan Quest, sharing some designers and mechanics with that fine 2006 Greek myth ARPG. Check this rpg game out. Horror intensifies, This is one of best classic rpg gameBest RPG Games 8

9. Legend of Grimrock 2

We loved the original Legend of Grimrock and the way it embraced the old Dungeon Master model of making your party—mostly a collection of stats—explore the world one square at a time. The one drawback is that it was too literal of a dungeon crawler.Best RPG Games 9

10. Tyranny

It isn’t quite the accomplishment of its cousin, Pillars of Eternity, but Tyranny’s premise sets it apart from other RPGs. Playing as an agent of evil could’ve been expressed with pure, bland sadism, but instead Tyranny focuses on the coldness of bureaucracy and ideological positioning.Best RPG Games 10

11. Darkest Dungeon

You might begin Darkest Dungeon as you would an XCOM campaign: assembling a team of warriors that you’ve thoughtfully named, decorated, and upgraded for battle. How naive! Inevitably, your favorite highwayman gets syphilis. Your healer turns masochistic, and actually begins damaging herself each turn. Your plague doctor gets greedy, and begins siphoning loot during each dungeon run.Best RPG Games 11

12. Mount & Blade: Warband

There are few games that get medieval combat right, and fewer still that add a strategic, army-building component. Fostering an army of farmers into warriors is great, but we love that Mount & Blade gives us the agency to be a hero figure on the battlefield and shape the outcome of a battle ourselves with our marksmanship or fast riding.Best RPG Games 12

13. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Pick a direction and run. You’re almost guaranteed to discover some small adventure, some small chunk of world that will engage you. It’s that content density that makes Skyrim constantly rewarding. A visit to the Mage’s Guild will turn into an area-spanning search for knowledge.Best RPG Games 13

14. Pillars of Eternity

There’s very little about Pillars of Eternity that’s actually innovative; in fact, its whole Kickstarter-funded existence is based on appealing to the nostalgia for aging Infinity Engine CRPGs like Baldur’s Gate II. That usually matters little, though, since Pillars of Eternity pulls it off so damned well.Best RPG Games 14

15. Divinity: Original Sin

Divinity was a Kickstarter success story that still somehow took us by surprise. Unlike most RPGs, it’s designed with co-op in mind—you even control two protagonists in the single-player version, roleplaying different motivations through conversations. Larian designed encounters thinking that someone could always disagree, or ruin things for you, or even kill the NPC you need to talk to—meaning that quests have to be solvable in unorthodox ways.Best RPG Games 15

16. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2

While BioWare’s first KOTOR is a Star Wars classic, KOTOR 2 takes the franchise in a bolder direction. Instead of focusing on the Light or Dark sides of the Force, the Jedi Exile of Obsidian’s sequel deals in shades of gray. Alliances are made, then broken, then remade in the aftermath. Star wars are best rpg games seriesBest RPG Games 16

17. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines

It’s all about atmosphere—from the goth clubs where you meet contacts, to the back alleys where you scavenge for rat blood, to the haunted Ocean House Hotel (one of the best quests in the game). Bloodlines’ ambitious use of White Wolf’s Vampire universe means it looks and feels different from the other sword and sorcery games on this list.Best RPG Games 17

18. Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls

Let’s face it: the real-money auction house was a bad idea, one of a few in the original Diablo 3 release. Blizzard nixed the cash auctions right before Reaper of Souls’ release, but it’s the addition of Adventure Mode that turned the game around from disappointing sequel to crowning achievement for the series. This is indeed best rpg games. Instead of rehashing the game’s acts, Adventure Mode’s task-based milestones and randomized areas make the game feel fresh for much longer.Best RPG Games 18

19. Fallout: New Vegas

While Fallout 3 was successful, it was a different beast entirely from Interplay’s classics. Obsidian’s take on the franchise moves the action back to the West Coast, and reintroduces elements such as reputation and faction power struggles. Obsidian expands on nearly every aspect of Bethesda’s take, making the game less about good or evil, and more about who you should trust.Best RPG Games 19

20. Dark Souls 3

Name any similar-looking RPG made in the past five years, and chances are good Dark Souls will be named as an inspiration for its design. Still, Dark Souls 3 proves that no one does it quite so well as From Software. The spark of originality that was so compelling in Dark Souls 1 isn’t quite as apparent here, the second sequel in just five years, but what remains is an impeccably designed combat-heavy RPG.Best RPG Games 20

21. The Witcher 2

The epic scale of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is remarkable, but it’s the power of choice in an unrelentingly ugly world that makes it unforgettable. Moral ambiguity has never been so powerfully presented: the decisions you make actually matter, and the outcomes are often unforeseeable and rarely as good as you’d hope. The Witcher 2 is one of best rpg games that i play right now.Best RPG Games 21

22. Dragon Age: Origins

Capturing that old Baldur’s Gate feel was goal number one for Dragon Age, and it comes pretty close. Ferelden evokes much of the Forgotten Realms without feeling like a rehash, and your relationship with your team has that old BioWare magic.Best RPG Games 22

23. Mass Effect 2

BioWare’s first Mass Effect felt like a KOTOR clone, and not in a good way. The universe was a place we wanted to live, but there were too many systems and menus to dig through to get there. Still, it terrified us to hear that BioWare had streamed back so much and put more emphasis on the shooting mechanics. Turns out, it was for the better: Mass Effect 2 trims just enough fat to let you focus on what matters: the optional Loyalty missions for your team. Mass Effect series are my favorite rpg gamesBest RPG Games 23

24. Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition

Yes, Dark Souls breaks a cardinal rule of RPGs: you can beat it without leveling. But only if you’re really good, and only if you understand its systems perfectly—that its crafting system matters, that certain items can be obtained only by fulfilling obfuscated quests. In a genre where systems are king, Dark Souls reigns because it’s all about systems.Best RPG Games 24

25. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Many RPGs focus on tales of lone, wandering adventurers, but few if any pull it off it with such artistry as The Witcher 3. That artistry is most apparent in the setting itself, which is so packed with breathtaking sunsets and wind-tossed groves of trees that, months later, I still find myself opting to go to destinations on foot rather than taking the fast travel points.Best RPG Games 25

26. Fallout 2

The original Fallout was a huge success for Interplay, but it’s not as big of a world as you’d expect. The sequel expands that world considerably, and adds more moral ambiguity to a game where right and wrong are already hard to tell apart.
