Best RPG of 2021

VGChartz's Chinh Tran: "If you were a fan of RPG Games in 2021, you definitely wanted to own a Nintendo Switch. Three of the four shortlisted games are console exclusive to Nintendo's hybrid system, each offering a rich RPG experience at home or on the go. Bravely Default II continued the series' run of strong games dating back to 2012; Monster Hunter Rise again proved that Capcom has a wildly enjoyable RPG series on its hands that can consistently top lists and the charts; Shin Megami Tensei V, also by Capcom, took players through a demon-fusing adventure with new abilities; then finally there was Tales of Arise, which was yet another strong entry in the long-running RPG series and, for many, it's best so far."

I'm 40 hours in Tales of Arise, amazing game, well deserved. I'm a Monster Hunter fan, but I'm giving Tales an edge for this one myself: Rise is a great game but it lacks a little bit of content.

I didn't play SMTV though, I think it might be a valid contender.

The fact tales is the one to beat when talking about best jrpg that year shows how far the series has come along

I'm so tempted to play Arise. SMTV has been given a lot of fanfare too. It probably missed the runner-up spot by a hair (voting influence is split 50/50 between staff & community).

Fascinating! I've never played this so called "Rales of arise" before. Care to share your experiences and a review?

A pretty stacked year for JRPGs.
