Top 5 Action RPG Games Of All Time

The action role-playing game or action RPG is a type of role-playing video game which incorporates elements from action games or action-adventure games. Known has “hack and slash” games, Action RPGs are typically more action than roleplaying.

Action RPGs feature a heavy emphasis on raw combat, simplified stats or character customizations, and collecting mad loot. Combat is in real time, which is where the action part of the name comes from, so there is a real degree of player skilled involved in selecting the right action or combo at the right time in the appropriate setting. For example, shooting a magic missile at the darkness rather than at a target. (Borderlands, Culture, Dev, Diablo, Path of Exile, PC, The Witcher, Torchlight)

Not a bad list very debatable. Having played Diablo I and II, Torch Light, and now with POE they are all so similar I think they should kind of knock each other out. I think Soul's and Scrolls deserve a nod.

I agree, they're all VERY similar with a few subtle but meaningful difference, mostly related to community or logistics of running the game.

Whamlollypop7, can you make a comment on the page referring readers to Souls and Scrolls, maybe include a link to their site for reference?
