Twinfinite writes: 2017 has been a standout year for RPGs. Here's our picks for the best role-playing games we've played.
Still haven't beaten the winner yet... I know, I know...
Nioh is my personal GotY! Best time of 2017. AC Origins is close AndnI sure didn't expect that!
Nioh isn't a rpg. And it's not goty material.
i need to get back to nioh it kicked my ass so hard a few months ago ive been scared to go back ever since :(
I've been stuck at the third boss lady for three days...
Is that the woman? after you navigate through the dim damp caves? thats the exact one that made me stop for a while lol.its hard enough getting to her i haven't figured out how to beat her, and i hate watching youtube guides i feel cheap afterwards
Yeah I'm the same way but I had to watch a video last night and you just have to get her timing down. I've grinded to lvl 40 in that damn cave and she's still beating my ass.
It's not that difficult lol
i messed up and did something in the wrong order which just made it hard on myself
Just got Nioh Complete edition for 30 bucks, something tells me im in for quite a ride..
Game is nothing short of FANTASTIC! Enjoy it bro!
I still need to play Nioh! Won DLC in it from a contest lol Now I need the game to go with it
Remember the drug dealer always says. The first one is FREE :)
Nice, I would have also put Tales of Zestria there in the list and also replaced Nioh with anything else.
Tales of Zestria released in 2015. And I imagine you haven't actually played Nioh, but it's not what won they chose Persona 5. I am not sure why they chose Nioh for the picture, but it is hilarious to see that basically no one clicked the link.
Ack, I meant Tales of Berseria. And I did click the link and I said nice because it was good to see their picks, all but Nioh. I have played Nioh and I was not impressed with it in the slightest. Terrible environments, the same enemy types for half the game and just an overall uninteresting story.
Do you even Tales? Zestiria came out two years ago
lmao it was also not that good
I dunno... I wouldn't really call Nioh an rpg...
Correct, it's not an RPG in the traditional sense. Not sure why you're being down-voted.
Maybe because the definition of RPG has expanded past DD. I guess you need to clarify what your definition of a RPG is?
I would have put Divinity Original Sin 2 instead of Nioh. Persona 5 is awesome though.
Any idea if Divinity Original Sin 2 coming to PS4?
No word yet
BOTW isn't the answer to everything mate.
It was the best rpg
Botw isn't an rpg.
I’m role playing as link so it is
Look at most of the Zelda games and they are all "Action/Adventure". BoTW is no different. @343_Guilty_Spark If that is your definition of an RPG then pretty well every game ever made is an RPG. Fortunately, there is a definition of what an RPG is and BoTW does not fall into that category. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... To be fair if you have ever played "Zelda II: The Adventure of Link" that game can be considered an Action RPG since you can change the overall stats of Link.
I role played last night
Link doesn't level up. Zelda was never an rpg.
Neither is Nioh and Nier. Good games? Yes. RPGs? No.
lol....I guess every game where you play as someone is an RPG. sigh
Crash Bandicoot collection duh.
All the PS4 RPGS's are great!
I would say "most" but not "all". Sure, critics may give a game a score for good or bad but the final like or dislike comes from the player and what one player likes another player may not and vice versa. BTW. I have not played all of the PS4 RPG's to date although most of the ones I have played I rather liked.
LOL no Tales of Zesteria? nope Star Ocean 5? nope Those Star Ocean HD remaster? nope Omega Quintet ? nope there probably even more terrible RPG on PS4.
Subjective and a matter of opinion. One thing I will say the PS4 has way more first and third party RPG exclusives than the competitors this generation 😁👍🏻
Divinity Original Sin 2 is leagues above the rest and overall GOTY not just for rpg but al genres, but persona and nioh are amazing games
Considering it is already a classic game... great choice!
My personal RPGs of the year #1 Divinity OS2 #2 Nioh.
Persona 5 :)
Xenoblade 2, Persona 5, Nier Automata. Best 3 for me. If we count HD ports then I can throw in .hack GU on PS4 as well as FFXII Zodiac Age.
Game definitely looks fantastic, Im stacked with PS4 games here and that's the reason why i haven't started playing Nioh yet, That's my habit to keep the best for the last. Well, I'm really glad to see people praising the game and calling it game of the year or best rpg for 2017 despite the gaming award, Planning to turn on that sucker after finishing Little Nightmare & Hellsblade immediately.
Nioh and Nier are not RPGs FFS, great games yes but they are not what I and I expect most experienced gamers would consider as belonging to the RPG genre. They may have RPG like elements to them but they are not RPGs they are action adventure games. This is just a case of twisting definition to suit ones tastes.
For me it would be of course. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 I would put Persona 5, Pokemon Ultra Moon, Fire Emblem Echoes and Dragon Quest VIII after.
Mass Effect: Andromeda
