It’s difficult for many people to determine the absolute “Top 10 RPGs of all time” as it is subjective and depends on personal opinions. However, I am a strong believer that some RPGs have stood the test of time and really influenced the rest of the genre.
Here is a list of some of the most highly regarded and popular RPGs of all time:
- Chrono Trigger (SNES)
- Final Fantasy VII (PS1)
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
- Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn (PC)
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4)
- Planescape: Torment (PC)
- Mass Effect 2 (PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
- Fallout 3 (PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
- Fire Emblem: Awakening (Nintendo 3DS)
- Dark Souls (PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Switch)
This list is not exhaustive and there are many other excellent RPGs worth mentioning. Additionally, the ranking of these games is subjective and can vary depending on individual preferences.
