Yo Gamers! We were wondering about the best role-playing games we have played over the past few years? There is so much to RPG’s be it about taking your time and doing all the side quests, or just like to competing online, RPG’s offer the best of all worlds. Video games in general have become revolutionary over the past decade, and will only continue to get better.
There are many factors that make up a great RPG and all of the following games have the ‘X factor 😉 ’. The ‘X’ factor is what makes these games memorable, entertaining and innovative. Every game featured offers something different, and they’re all impressive in their own ways. We would love to know which are your favourites. So here is the list:
4. Mass Effect
Mass Effect takes you on an incredible journey. Every action you make reflects in your relationships with your colleagues and enemies. It does not make a big difference in the game’s final outcome, which is annoying but never mind.
That said, it is incredibly fun, the characters are well thought out and voiced over brilliantly. The shoot outs were fun and the main quests always moved forward towards something bigger. Being able to have the same player throughout the 3 games was amazing. Building Shephard from scratch and turning him into a hero was very rewarding. Relationships are forged and enemies are made but one way or another, every character had a purpose. I have my doubts about Mass Effect 4, but I certainly don’t have any about the first 3. They were all first class that’s why I played the Game Twice 😉 Don’t judge me!
The Fallout series really has transformed itself into one of the most consistent and fun games you’ll ever play. Fallout 3 takes place in a post-apocalyptic Washington DC. The plot is perfectly summed up in one word Survive.
Fallout 3 is an open world adventure that lets you do so many things that you’ll remain entertained for hours. Whether it’s hunting and skinning animals, shooting mutants or buying new weapons, Fallout 3 has something for everyone. The combat system offers something for everyone and you’ll meet quite the cast of characters along the way.
Fallout: New Vegas is just as fun, if not more so. As an enhanced version of Fallout 3, there’s just more to do in New Vegas. In New Vegas you have the opportunity to make some allies that can actually help you in your development. Your actions have consequences and the was they portray New Vegas is just amazing. The Fallout series is easily one of the best RPGs of the last 10 years.
Now this is my favourite J WOW is a massive online playing RPG and it’s incredibly popular. WOW’s popularity continues to grow by the day with the addition of expansion packs and its played by millions of people all over the world. It’s the ultimate game to play with your friends. Building your “guild” or team along the way. The world of WOW is seemingly endless and there’s always something for you to do.
Kicking people’s asses with your buddies is always fun and that’s one of WOW’s biggest wins. The combat functions are fun and easy to use, whether you’re a mage, a warrior, healer or a priest. You can create multiple players and continue to build up your different characters. One of the best things about WOW is that there is no end. You can play forever. There’s no bad guy at the end waiting for you. It’s just you and your buddies kicking ass and taking names against other determined teams. If you’re looking to compete at the highest level, this is the game for you.
In my humble opinion, Skyrim is the most detailed and most entertaining RPG game of all-time. It’s open world is beautiful and the gameplay is unrivalled. You start out as a slave who gets released, then it’s up to you to turn your life around and make something of yourself. And that’s where the fun begins.
The Empire of Tamriel is in shambles and the King of Skyrim has been murdered. The world is in trouble and it’s up to you to restore some order. It isn’t always easy, but it’s definitely fun getting there. There’s almost too much to do in the game. Almost. You have the opportunity to make coin by doing small jobs, which in turn you can use to purchase better weapons and armour. Earn respect with each task you complete and you begin to earn XP and fame along the way.
You’ll have countless battles with humans, mages and dragons and I can truly say that they’re all enjoyable to partake in. You’d think for a game that you can easily dump over 100 hours in would start to get tedious, but you’d be wrong. Not only is the main story fun, but the DLC is great. Sadly, I’m still playing some of them. Not that I’m complaining – it’s always fun slaying dragons. Whether it be in video games or real life. Yeah, that’s right: I slay dragons.
Did we forget a game? We’re sure we did. We can’t play them all! So be heard in the comments section below.
