The Best RPGs of the Last 15 Years


Throughout gaming history perhaps no genre has evolved quite as much as the RPG. And while those classic role-playing games of the 16 and 32 bit eras are no doubt some of the greatest games of all time, we’ve come a long way since then. So with that said, here are the top 10 best modern RPGs of all time.But before we get into the list, let’s set some ground rules.

First, for the purpose of this feature, we’re defining “modern” as any game released within the past 10 to 15 years – basically since the start of the PS3 and Xbox 360 era of consoles.Second, because RPG is such a broad genre, we did our best to try and keep this list to games that are purely – or, at least, mostly pure –RPGs; that is, games with a heavy focus on decision-making and story elements coupled with statistical progression. Meaning, if a game could be better described as being a genre other than RPG, we left it off the list – that’s why you won’t see games like X-Com or Fire Emblem, which are better described as tactics games, or any of the FromSoftware Soulsborne games, because… well… yeah, they’re basically their own genre at this point.

Its two DLC expansions are both bigger and more polished than many full games. Even the Gwent minigame stands as one of the best games-within-a-game of all time. The Witcher 3 might just be the best open-world RPG that we’ve seen in modern times, and it’s definitely our favorite – one that’s not likely to be surpassed anytime soon … at least until Cyberpunk 2077 is released.
