My Personal Favorite RPG Games of 2017

I love RPG games. I love the sense of freedom and the reality mixed with a bizarre fantasy world. Managing, Upgrading your character gives an amazing feeling of accomplishment. 2017 was a really good year for RPG games and some hardcore fans of genre got games that they needed.

I compiled my favorite RPG games of 2017



No game has captured the nuance of pen-and-paper RPG quite like Divinity: Original Sin 2. Every moment is filled with meaningful choice with real consequences, and every character has a story to tell. In an RPG landscape where dialogue options are dumbed down, and quests have become package delivery to a specific map coordinate, Divinity: Original Sin 2 stands out as one of the best RPGs I’ve played in a decade…maybe even longer than that. – GamingTrend
Stop whatever it is you’re doing right now, and go play this game. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a definitive game-of-the-year contender, and one of the best RPGs to be released this entire decade. – GameCrate
Divinity Original Sin 2 is a masterpiece of an RPG that manages to take the Baldur’s Gate inheritance and bring it to new and unexplored peaks of excellency. From combat to production values and story, everything simply shines. [Recommended] – Eurogamer Italy


Image result for NIOH

Saying that Nioh is a “Souls clone” not only doesn’t do justice to a superb game, but can be quite misleading. Nioh stands on its own as a masterpiece from Team Ninja that reminds us the Ninja Gaiden glory days of the studio. –
Nioh has a lot to offer with its deep combat system, and it’s an overall addicting action game for fans of Ninja Gaiden and Dark Souls. – Gamers’ Temple
Ultimately, NiOh is a really fantastic game. It comes with some flaws, and a few elements that are a bit rough around the edges, but it hits almost all the right notes. Team Ninja’s latest labor of love is packed with charm, atmosphere, and one of the best action battle systems that you’ll find across the industry. – DualShockers



Well worth the wait. Building off of the massive success of The Stick of Truth, Fractured But Whole has an incredibly satisfying combat system that leaves you constantly eager for the next fight, exemplary and natural dialogue from everyone in town, and a truly epic soundtrack. – COGconnected
You’ll still need to be a fan of the show to get the most of this. But if you are a South Park aficionado, The Fractured but Whole is another hilarious and fun game that captures the spirit of series. – GamesBeat
Surrounding the fart jokes and fourth graders who love to say a lot, there is a brutally intelligent comedic commentary on many aspects of modern society. It’s something that South Park has always been great at, and something that translates incredibly well to interactivity. – PlayStation LifeStyle


Image result for HORIZON ZERO DAWN

This is a culmination of everything Guerrilla has learned from working on the Killzone franchise and they’ve successfully crafted something that delivers on the potential many saw back in 2015. Horizon Zero Dawn is not only one of the best-looking games of this generation, but a must own for every PlayStation 4 owner. – Hardcore Gamer
Horizon Zero Dawn thrums with the energy of a creative team finally allowed to explore something new. It builds on elements of open-world and loot-and-craft gameplay that we’ve seen before, but it does so within a context, a setting and a style that feel fresh. Horizon Zero Dawn discovers a stronger sense of its own personality in one game than Killzone ever managed across half a dozen. Guerrilla Games has long been developing some of the most buzzed-about games in the industry; with Horizon, it feels like it has finally found its own voice, one worthy of all that buzz. – Polygon
Guerilla’s open world debut offers great gameplay, is huge and looks fantastic. A must-buy for PS4 owners. – GamePro Germany


Image result for NIER AUTOMATA

Nier: Automata is an absolute masterclass in game design. It surpasses expectations time and time again resulting in an experience not to be missed by fans of action titles. – GameGrin
Nier: Automata is a delectable buffet of remarkable experiences that seamlessly and beautifully mesh together. In spite its plethora of elements, the game doesn’t suffer from the sometimes inevitable pitfalls of trying to do too much. – PlayStation LifeStyle
Platinum Games, with the help of Square Enix, has tapped into its innate ability to captivate us with combat while keeping the rest of the journey engaging. – Destructoid


Image result for mass effect andromeda

Opinions of Mass Effect: Andromeda will differ greatly based on expectations. The game still provides many hours of enjoyment and lots of the good things that fans have come to expect, but those hoping the series uses this opportunity to take another giant leap may find themselves brought back to Earth with a bump. For everything the development team has done right, there is a little misstep that holds it back, particularly when building the overall story. It’s still a highly enjoyable game, but not as stellar as many might have hoped. – RPGamer
Despite its problems with the facial animations, Mass Effect Andromeda is a great entry in one of the most beloved franchises of all time. Great side-quests, a compelling story, memorable characters, a solid combat system, decisions that matter and a deep atmosphere all make this game a must-have for every sci-fi fan. – Atomix
Mass Effect: Andromeda is an unbalanced experience. It’s an incredibly ambitious game with a colossal scope, but it doesn’t always hit the right notes. – Hardcore Gamer


Image result for PERSONA 5

If the opening hours of Persona 5 are like starting a massive novel, then the closing hours are like finishing one, complete with the bittersweet finality of turning the last page. But it also carries an immense sense of satisfaction. After 100 hours of playing, all of my big questions were answered. I understood the characters, I knew my way around the world, and I had fun almost every step of the journey. You become a resident of Persona 5 the more you play it, and it has the rare ability to transport in a way few games can. – Game Informer
Persona 5 is full of style and confidence. Persona 5 knows that it’s special, and you’ll soon know it, too. – GamesBeat
Girls and boys, Persona 5 is simply the new king of Japanese role playing games, and it may even be 2016’s game of the year. The story is so deep, the battle system is so well-executed, the art direction is so amazing and the music is so groovy! I instantly felt in love with this game and I am pretty sure you will too. –
