The 12 Best RPGs of All Time
Role-playing games let us live another life - in unusual or fantastic settings but still quite realistic. Here you make tough decisions and meet their consequences, develop your personality and explore the world around you. If you always wanted to change your life, choose one of these 12 best RPG games of all time and start your unforgettable adventure.
A good story opens through its heroes - and all six characters in Divinity: Original Sin II have unique personalities that are exciting to reveal. So do NPCs; they make the in-game world realistic and exciting to explore. Of course, every detail matters, from your traits to the decisions you make. It's hard to be a god, isn't it?
Even a professional monster hunter can choose: who to kill and spare, which side of the conflict to support, what quests to take and which one to love. You can change the world around Geralt, save many lives or destroy them, find his beloved daughter-in-law or leave her forever... More difficult choices are waiting for you in the DLC - two incredible stories worthy to be standalone titles.
No one can return in 1403 and become an ordinary Bohemian fellow unless they are reenactors or play Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The realism of this game is in details of quests, battles and the day-to-day life of your character. And, of course, you have many ways to go: you are to manage your fate yourself.
Undertale only seems to be easy. But don't let it trick you: under the simple (but stylish!) visuals hides the profound role-playing aspect that won't leave you indifferent. Don't be shy to explore the world of Unertale and it will reward you with awesome quests, narrative, and action.
Baldur's Gate is a perfect choice for all classic tabletop RPGs lovers. Based on iconic Dungeons and Dragons, it focuses on character development, tactical battles and completing multiple quests. You can create your hero, customize them and then upgrade with unique items and experience points. Shadows of Amn is so detailed that will capture you for hours of exploration.
You take on the role of a mysterious hero that wants to reveal the truth of his past. Unlike many other RPGs, Planescape: Torment focuses on narrative, the story, and interaction with NPC more than on fights. Here the lore is extremely important: the game gives you a chance to live your life as the protagonist from a fresh start.
Diablo 2 throws you from one battle into another instead of the deep immersion into the story. However, you don't feel this lack of lore at all. The game follows a simplified but working RPG formula: character development plus upgradable weaponry plus dozens of monsters to kill.
The Mass Effect trilogy is arguably one of the most involving games ever. Going through it you become attached to the characters and every story choice feels harder. The second part of the franchise expresses this spirit at its best, so don't waste your time, and go get captain Shepard's place on Normandy SR-2!
Fallout: New Vegas maybe didn't make a revolution but remarkably enhanced the world of Fallout. We mean, the game still fits in the series but adds so many details and little changes to it that seems to be a completely different title. The world became bigger, you got new abilities and responsibilities and in general New Vegas looks grumpy but alive.
Join the confrontation between two vampire clans and find your place in their struggle! You can be a delicate aristocrat and solve problems lying or charming your opponents. Or become a furious monster that kills dozens of enemies with his bare hands. In any case, the game will give you everything to dive into the story and take part in the best masquerade in your life.
So many things are already said about Skyrim! But you can get an accurate impression only playing this game. You are to write your own history in this huge magical world. Be whoever you like, meet legendary heroes or become one, kill dragons and monsters, make love and friendship in Skyrim.
Persona 5 focuses on exploring human feelings and fighting the worst parts of our souls. Every character in the game, including the protagonist, has unique abilities that allow them to become warriors and saviors of the world. Face your emotions and release your hidden power to help other people.
