Nine years after its release, Skyrim is slowly being overshadowed in the RPG industry, but what will take its place as gaming enters a new generation?

I know that a lot western people love Skyrim style, but I can't stand the FPS physics and basic designs. For me anything like XII, Horizon, The Witcher or such. Easily overshadowed Skyrim with just first chapter or even first tutorial. Even BoTW feels and plays better.

They should pay the modding community for its longevity. Without quality of life mods, Skyrim is a lazy crap game. Same goes for Fallout 4. Bethesda should get credit for the skeleton, but those modders are what sell the game year after year.

November 2022 Is a Bittersweet Month for Bethesda

While Bethesda celebrates Skyrim's anniversary, it is worth remembering that the long-awaited Starfield should have launched this month too.

Dragon Quest 11 isn't even the best Dragon Quest game, it's a good game, but not the best. Dragon Quest 8 is superior to it in almost every way.

...and 1 and 2 and 3 and 4....

I am biased.

Sometimes I forget how much of a powerhouse the PS1 was

MadLad673d ago

I don't play too many jrpgs, and I'm trying to diversify a bit.

Outside of FF and Dragon Quest, what two games from that list do you most recommend someone trying? Doesn't matter if it's a sequel to another game or not.

Jiub673d ago

IMO: Chrono Trigger and Suikoden II

thorstein672d ago

Octopath Traveler is really good.

BlaqMagiq1672d ago

You have Threads of Fate on there which means you get my ultimate respect. Underrated and overlooked.

Exvalos672d ago

Man your dang near spot on absolute spot on choices

Epicor672d ago

I like your top 6 a lot. I don't have the same orders but all those games would make my top 10 RPG list most likely. Number 1 for me is FFIX. It holds a special place in my heart and imo it's the perfect Final Fantasy game.

In addition I would give special mention to some western RPG's as well: Skyrim and Mass Effect 2 were iconic games. Out of JRPG's I'd like to add Disgaea 2 on that list.

Some of my personal favorites are Planescape: Torment, New Vegas, Morrowind, Kotor 2, Wasteland 3, Witcher 2, Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, Deus Ex, Disco Elysium and Vampyr.

As far as jrpg, while I'm not as big a fan as I am for Western RPGs, I love Persona 3 - 5, Dragon Quest 8 and 11, Rogue Galaxy, Final Fantast 6,7, and 12; and Lost Odyssey.

Some quality taste in games there squire.

I'd add some Baldurs Gate 2 and Neverwinter Nights from back in the day too.

MadLad672d ago

Should have added BG2. Played through it many times over the years.

Never could get into Neverwinter Nights though. Not sure why.
