Eivor with 2 ax’s ready for battle Assassin’s Creed Valhalla continues the RPG trend of Odyssey and origins but with a small twist. Whereas Assassin’s Creed Odyssey went super heavy on RPG elements, AC Valhalla takes a “RPG lite” approach where these systems aren’t overwhelming to the gameplay. Everything from dialogue options and skill trees to weapon and gear stats to super intricate questlines are there, but it does in a manner that makes the game play and feel a lot more like the first Assassin’s Creed games than the 2 prior. Indeed, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla oftentimes looks like the perfect marriage of the former action adventure games and the newer RPG adventures.

Demon’s Souls

Launched alongside the PS5 is actually a Bluepoint Games’ Remake of Demon’s Souls, the classic Souls title that came before Dark Souls. The original was no doubt a good RPG, but with Bluepoint’s touch, the capabilities of the PS5, and the newfound popularity of these very difficult games, Demon’s Souls takes everything that it was and dials it to eleven.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Alongside DBZ: Kakarot even, Dragon Ball FighterZ and Dragon Ball Xenoverse two are currently receiving support. Nevertheless, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is actually among the truest-to-form RPGs in the franchise in years that are many, and while its DLC run has left some things to be desired, the base game truly felt like it told the age old story with renewed vigor. Stepping into Goku and friend’s shoes, playing through each story arc, and powering up throughout the games with extra touches and side quests really bring the world to life.

Final Fantasy seven Remake

Final Fantasy seven part two discussion with director Of course, one of probably the biggest video games of 2020 was the remake of Final Fantasy seven. Part two is currently in development, but this very first entry tells the Midgar section of the original with new plot elements that leave the future of this continuation tantalizing. Final Fantasy seven is actually a classic for a reason, and every one of the RPG elements in the game go a long way in getting every detail to life, including everything from Cloud’s PTSD to the game’s combat system.

Genshin Impact

Players have to unlock characters, proceed through the story, enjoy an expanding endgame, and more to actually beat the game, but that is actually only the tip of the iceberg. Combined with the well received gacha system (as it’s a free-to-play RPG), and Genshin Impact landed in 2020 determined to create a name for itself.

humble bundle happy ray games october 2020 Big RPGs are always great, but the indie scene delivers much more often than not as well. While roguelikes as Hades have been the talk of the indie scene, Ikenfell really comes into its own as a turn based RPG. As we wrote in our review of Ikenfell, it’s a “masterclass in game design, boasting a unique synthesis of turn based tactical RPG elements alongside its heartfelt narrative.”

Immortals Fenyx Rising

In Immortals Fenyx Rising, players step into the shoes of Fenyx as they traverse a Ubisoft open world of Greek gods and monsters. It is an amazing style of RPG, as the game manages to never take itself too seriously. While there are actually the typical skill upgrades and common mechanics of RPGs, players are actually likely to spend much more of their time laughing as they advance through the story. It is a game where a mythological figures as Zeus is able to make dad jokes and grow as a father, almost as it’s a game where a chosen one must defeat the big bad.

While the content is largely the same, you can find a number of character additions, activities, areas, new mechanics, expanded dungeons and battles, and a lot more. It took all that made the base version great and dialed it up to eleven, continuing Joker’s streak in the RPG community. Certainly, fans of JRPGS who have not played Persona before should not skimp on the newest entry, as it’s everything one could want and then some.

Wasteland 3

Wasteland three Tactical, top down RPGs are not for everyone, but that statement cannot actually be applied to Wasteland three. It’s a bawdy RPG, one with true OG Fallout vibes, and manages to tell an intriguing story with interesting companions. Alongside characters as Ironclad Cordite, players get to decide the fate of post apocalyptic Colorado while being caught between the Patriarch (and the family) of his and another ranger, Angela Dreth. It has one of few RPGs that manage to make decisions feel as they’ve weight, and the character customization is actually top notch.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon

The reality that Ichiban Kasuga manages to follow up well to former protagonist Kiryu is actually a feat unto itself, but the game’s new RPG combat system and character jobs come off very well done. Ultimately, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is actually a surprising RPG, one that checks all the right boxes.
