RPGs are dead葉he industry k*lled them
 

 
I know folks gone come on here talking about the indies or telling me “b-but RPGs still make money” that’s not what I’m talking about

when was the last classic RPG game? like 15 years ago these games were on top of the industry now they’re all replaced by garbage “looter shooters”

Witcher 3? It's a classic.
Persona 5/Royal? Its a classic and one of the highest rated games of all time through any publication in any country
Disco Elysium? Classic
Stardew Valley? (I don't play it, but its immensely popular)
Zelda Breath of the Wild? Needs no explanation

I'm an RPG Fan..sh*t my fave games of all time is probably a cool tie between Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6...But I have to disagree..I DO feel like the design of RPG's is getting a little corny, and it's wack how the feel/soul of JRPG's and their open worlds in the 90s somehow didn't translate as well to modern times.

But we got a nice list of huge GREAT classics that have come out in the last decade, with lots of 'good' titles and, average/alright joints too . Dragon Quest, Bravely Default, Octopath Traveler, and all of the action rpg type joints that successfully blur the line between RPG and Action game(Monster Hunter World) ..We in pretty good shape

It's games with heavy RPG elements like the Souls titles/Bloodborne/Nioh/Demon Souls Remake/

You just gotta play some of the sh*t fam. Its some good sh*t out here bro

Shoutout the Souls series those games are amazing... I tried Persona and it was alright I see why folks like it...

Monster Hunter was cool... I would even throw Dragon痴 Dogma in there....

But I been playing some of this older sh*t like Gothic .... I can稚 help but feel like RPG games lost something...

Man you talking about guys not listing classics, but got the wrong KOTOR in the OP. KOTOR II was dope, but it ain't got sh*t on the original.

Disco Elysium is one of the greatest games ever made and is one that could readily be defined as an RPG, unlike some y'all have posted. It's not some big mainstream game which is possibly where the industry has shifted but it's still phenomenal and critically acclaimed.

RPGs aren't dead, you just gotta know where to look.

Solasta is dope, Pillars of Eternity is dope, Divinity is dope, Pathfinder is dope.

We got Baldurs Gate 3 in early access now too.

I feel you. Playing RPGs feels like a chore to me nowadays where as before I would want to progress to get deeper into the storyline. For the first time ever, I don't play games that are too big with so much sh*t to do, with an exception of Witcher 3 because the game is fu*king dope. But alot the games ARPGs game worlds feel empty.

I personally don稚 consider Souls series or Breath of the Wild for that matter (seen it mentioned a few times) RPGs. Then again, the lines between RPGs and so many other genres have been blurred like a MF lately.

RPGs in the style I fu*k with have fallen off as a whole but there痴 still some great ones being released

fu*k all the way outta here with that sh*t. To each his own, but this thread is now irrelevant as far as I'm concerned. Besides, there's plenty of RPG in the last year that are classics let alone ones that are very good.
