The Top 5 Most Engaging RPGs of 2016

With a few months left in the year, we can very well say that 2016 was a good year for RPGs. Over the years, the industry has expanded with more platforms being developed for these games. Most RPGs work on different platforms, but there are those which were specifically developed for PS4 or XB1. This is one of the reasons why players sometimes invest in different gaming platforms to maximize their experience. They can easily shift from one game to another without worrying about their choice not being supported by the media they have.There were dozens of releases that came out for PS4, PC, and Xbox One, but we can only choose five of the best RPGs of 2016 to include in this list. If we missed your favorites, let us a note in the comments section below.

  1. Torment: Tides of Numenera

This is a sci-fi RPG where you would have to find out the rules as you go on. This is an environment where the world is also a weapon. This is one of the few RPG’s where there is always a choice, and fighting is not always the first one on the list. There is a reason that Torment:Tides of Numenera is set a billion years in the future: for the gamer to find that anything can really happen. The user needs to expand his mindset just to find the rules and understand the goals of the scenarios and the game itself. After ten years of waiting, gamers are itching for this game. They won’t be disappointed.landscape-1458726650-best-xbox-one-games

  1. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Do not underestimate Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. It delivers on every level. Besides the game play, there is the inherent taunt that you have not done anything yet. With a very fulfilling 3D layout, this game has a lot of surprises for the intrepid explorer. This game is not really an Easter egg hunt, but you would almost feel that way. Getting to know what you can do with your augmented parts is an integral part of the gameplay. Knowing what you can do, that is the secret of getting the most of the game. If you are wowed by the scenery, wait until you flex your muscles.

  1. The Witcher 3: Blood & Wine (Expansion Pack)

2016’s batch of new game incarnations gives the player a lot of exploring. The land is rich in this latest, last and best chapter of The Witcher series. You start out with a world to explore, and you get surprises in the richness of the land, and how it is displayed on screen. This is not a warrior’s quest, but more of a puzzle, detective and episode straight out of the TV and dressed up in medieval knight ware. To say that it strays from The Witcher series may be true, but it also has a sense of drama, intelligence and humor in playing the game. The user gets amused as the character gets befuddled in losing his patience. That might be a contradiction in terms, but it is an endearing quality to the Witcher 3.

  1. Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy is perhaps one of the most popular RPGs in history. After more than 20 years, you would think that there is nothing left to the imagination. Except that every new release ups the ante, makes the futuristic world even better, and the characters more well-rounded. There is depth in the characters, and there are always new characters. You play Final Fantasy XV and you immerse in the game in the same way you did the first time you played an earlier Final Fantasy game.

  1. Tyranny

The problem with a new world game, is that at the back of your mind, you know there is a big picture. You play in segments, but wonder what the joke is. 2016 games are so complex that the big picture has been obscured, and there is no longer a single correct movement or direction. Tyranny is the same, you want to know what happens at the end, even as you create choices for smaller segments. The only way to find out is to fight your way through the small battles to win the war.
