2016 was a year of upheaval for RPGs. In a year filled with so many big names in a genre that has become so diverse in style and mechanics, the final entries on this list are bound to strike some fans as controversial.
Controversial indeed. Persona 5 not good enough to make the list?
Assume it is only western released games.
No Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse........... -_-
I AM SETSUNA!!!
Ff15 is the only RPG I've played this year. It's the most surprising fun I've had all year and could end up being my GOTY.
Dark Souls 3.
For me personally its between ds3 and a certain dlc/add on, but like so many other people I haven't played every single rpg worthy of a nominee
Either DS3, Witcher 3 B&W (I know it's a DLC, but it's so big you can call it a game) and FFXV
Great picks...would be mine as well...hard to decide really.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Bravely Second Fire Emblem Fates The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II Dragon Quest VII Pokemon Sun & Moon Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse I wouldn't put FFXV in top because it has too many problems holding back and that the Battle System with magic, summons and other stuff.
