BacklogCritic: "There are many games with RPG elements such as experience points, levels, quests, dialogue trees or wheels, but offering the same solutions and the same outcomes no matter how personalised the characters may seem, which makes them cosmetic RPGs. Here is our top 10 RPGs of all time"

No Skyrim? No Fallout 3/4? No Mass Effect? No Dragon Age? No Dark Souls? No Final Fantasy? Meh

Too many old games nobody plays! This list sucks...

Fallout 3 & 4 are pale shadows compared to Fallout New Vegas. Skyrim is good but Morrowind is still the gold standard of elder scrolls games. The others probably should have been on the list in some form.

Old games rock. No Day 1 patches or DLC. No Micro-transactions or Loot Boxes. Games worked at launch instead of being incomplete. you seriously need to go and play some of the masterpieces from the past. Start with Chrono Trigger. You'll thank me later.

What about Shadowrun? SNES, amazing RPG. Genesis had a version that was a completely different story and also amazing.

I loved Shadowrun so much. Never played the Genesis version but I did try the new Shadowrun Returns. It rocked!

Are you joking? Baldurs gate 2 is much better than dragon age, mass effect doesn’t hold a candle to something like Deus Ex and Skyrim isn’t even the best in its own series.

Apart from NV on top and Arx Fatalis in the list, I pretty much agree with it. Good games, in depth systems worthy of being called RPGs. Full blown RPGs.

What would you put on top instead?

TheOptimist350d ago

It'd be a tough choice honestly. Deus Ex is an extremely good contender with Witcher 3 following close behind. When you boil it down to the top 3, it'll definitely be Deus Ex Witcher 3 and Divinity Original Sin 2.

There are no good rpgs so far. I mean, really good. The genre still has to get a masterpiece (like action adventures e.g.). The closest one so far is Witcher 3, but still so far to go.

What on earth are you talking about? There has been a ton of great RPG's.

SegaGamer350d ago

Some of these aren't even RPG's. I'm seeing this a lot lately.
