Best RPG

Roll your D20s its time for the RPG game of the year award. It all sounds so simple but behind the doors these games represent some of the more complex mechanics and plots around, giving us some of the most expansive and varied gaming environments we’ve ever seen.

Role-playing is all about immersion, and these games represent some of the deepest, most engrossing experiences available, often involving the player in some of the most grandiose tales of pure fantasy. The roleplaying game mechanic has been with us since the RPG Lord, Gary Gygax, first thought of pen & paper tabletop games with your buddies, and since then leveling up and character development has found its way into a huge proportion of video games.

Shadowrun Returns
Pedigree matters, and Shadowrun is proudly faithful to its tabletop RPG roots. Even the isometric viewpoint harkens back to the golden age of RPGs, but the combat, skill trees and plot of what is clearly a labour of love are deceptively elegant. Shadowrun has very definitely returned, and we’re sure that there will be more to come for this fantasy-cyberpunk-film noir mashup.

Dust: An Elysian Tail
This beautiful action-RPG from indie developer Humble Hearts has charm by the bucketload. Dust: An Elysian Tail takes place in the fictional world of Falana - a realm inhabited by wonderfully rendered anthropomorphic animals. It will take your breath away time and time again. Rich, immersive and deep storylines mixed with a brilliant RPG engine, certainly a strong contender for role player of the year.
