My Personal Favorite RPGs Video Games for PC


Role playing games are fundamental to PC gaming. Before there were sprawling open world sandboxes, first-person shooters, and real-time strategy games, PC game developers used their knowledge to recreate the monster-slaying, magic-wielding, and character-creation from beloved tabletop games like Dungeons and Dragons. This paved the way for some of the most immersive, fun, and engaging gaming experiences.
So without further ado, here are my 5 greatest PC RPGs of all time:

Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn

“Great quests, solid story, very good voice acting, challenging battles, and engaging dialogue and characters make this an RPG that stands head and shoulders above the competition.” – Armchair Empire

“For the first time in a single player game, I truly felt I was playing my way through a pen and paper fantasy campaign.” – Electric Playground

“A diversely beautiful and deadly environment filled with amazing characters and a myriad of possibilities. For any fan of the original, this is a must have – it’s just too good to pass up.” – All Game Guide

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

“Skyrim is definitely one of the best games of 2011, but if the DLC holds out, it might just be one of the best games of 2012 as well.” – Armchair Empire

“They’ve created a world as much as they’ve created a game, and it’s utterly brilliant. If you’ve got a computer that can run it, and the ability to manipulate a keyboard and mouse in any way, you owe it to yourself to play Skyrim.” – Game Chronicles

“After a trajectory of excellency with Oblivion and Fallout 3, Bethesda reaches a new level this generation, showing they have reached maturity in their unique way of making worlds. Thanks to their generosity, will and ambition, single players fans looking for huge worlds of high adventure can still keep dreaming. Skyrim is an absolute triumph.” – Meristation

Mass Effect 2

“Mass Effect 2 is an epic in every sense, not forgetting anything. It can hold us until the last second, and still allows us to go further.” – Eurogamer Portugal

“The gameplay is extremely effective in terms of its new cover system and leaner, more focused action. The lore and mythology is involving and the story pulls you into the universe. The voice acting, soundtrack and graphical fidelity are the icing on the cake.” – Boomtown

“Mass Effect 2 far exceeded our expectations and is without question one of the best games we’ve played. Use whatever positive description you’d like. System seller, potential game of the year, landmark achievement; just make sure you buy it immediately.” – Game Daily

Diablo

“The hundreds of beautifully rendered monstrosities, items and labyrinths will keep you on your toes for months. Blizzard is also one of the first software companies to offer FREE MULTI-PLAYER GAMING.” – Game Revolution

“Hands-down, the best game I’ve seen in years…The fantastic design, intuitive gameplay, spectacular graphics, inspired music and sound effects, sheer number of monsters and unique items, and the free Battle.net service put Diablo at a high level of excellence that future releases may never reach.” – Gamezilla

“A title that combines the elegant simplicity of an action game and the addictive storyline of an adventure game with the personalization and exploratoration of an old-school RPG… The best game to come out in the past year, and you should own a copy. Period.” – Gamespot

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is more than just an incredible game that successfully brings lush visuals, tactical combat and a captivating world untainted with the issues that games of similar nature have when building such huge open spaces. It is also a respectful closure for Geralt, the series and its fans.” – DarkZero

“It raises the bar on story and personality so much higher than its been for RPGs. After spending some time as Geralt, it’s tough to shake the sense that being Commander Shepard, The Dragonborn, or even a Jedi Knight is so much less exciting than simply being a monster-hunter in fantasy Poland. Saving the universe is nothing compared to the look you’ll get when you confirm someone’s worst fears.” – Quarter to Three

“This is the new standard for open world role-playing games. There is no such thing as a perfect game, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt come as close to perfect as any RPG to date.” – DarkStation
