Top RPGs (May 2017)

I love RPGs. I’d consider them my favorite game genre. When they work well, they’re a great series of player expression and world reactivity. Sure, there are a lot of other great elements about RPGs, but that’s the big idea that keeps me coming back to the genre. So here is my list of top RPGs.

Note: I don’t play most JRPGs so this will be a heavily Western focused RPG list.

  1. Fallout

  1. Deus Ex

  1. Dark Souls

  1. Planescape: Torment

  1. Darklands

  1. Chrono Trigger

  1. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords
