The original Fallout's really are incredible games. I agonised over which Fallout to add to the list, but settled on New Vegas in part because of the excellent modding community that still persists today, who have really added a vast amount of excellent content.
Like I said That my girlfriend can play it -- whilst she hates even modern RPGs -- speaks volumes. And I agree. It's a game you can just put in front of someone. EVERYTHING you do in it is click & drag.
An impressive list with a lot of quality games, all of which I think I have. :) Though I question the inclusion of Mount & Blade Warband. I really like the game however as an RPG it's nowhere near the same level as the rest of this list.
The dramatic set-pieces and workmanlike squad-based combat are punctuated by BioWare’s trademark, excellent dialogue. And simply wandering around alien locales, sticking your nose where it doesn’t belong - because that is what humans do in space, apparently - adds to the overall package. Suspend your disbelief for the last ten minutes and you will find yourself on one hell of a sci-fi ride.
No doubt they are (mostly) fun, enjoyable games, but both represent a trend of games without any trace of "character" their sequels had and show simplification of their mechanics for the purpose of being sold to a wider the same time bringing nothing new to the table.
I think with a list like this, I like the direction they are taking. It should be the 75 best RPG's that you would still want to play today, if you haven't played them.
I was trying to strike a balance between old and new, and I had so many older classics in the list that I felt that adding some new blood, hence why Torchlight II is there. Also, I would have loved to mention Path of Exile, as it's wonderful, but it is still in beta.
This innovative, step-by-step adventure game requires logical thinking skills aplenty as you carefully pick your way through the various rooms, collecting vital objects as you progress. A highly inquisitive mind is essential here as there are many concealed secrets to be discovered. Good memory skills are also advantageous as you may need to retrace your steps in order to put two pieces of the puzzle together. This could prove a very entertaining interactive activity for older teens who enjoy the suspense and thrill of a mysterious brain teaser, and appreciate the intricate detail and problem solving skills needed to succeed. It’s time to take a deep breath, focus your mind, and enter the enigmatic world of Being One!
What are the best RPGs on PC? It is not an easy question to answer, especially given the number of them out there and the hours required to beat them - we’re talking 55+ hours most of the time..
