Gameplay is king to me and that's where Witcher 3 disappoints. I can hardly count the number of times I have hit air when the animation shows that I am slashing through the enemy. Geralt isn't the most responsive when you dodge. Enemy design makes it difficult to see the attack animation clearly sometimes. The world is absolutely stunning, story is great (as per video game standards), the potion system is tedious, levelling up is confusing for beginners and Geralt is a jerky, monotonous, hard to control mess. Still playing it and loving it but there are just too many flaws to ignore especially when you compare it to an incredibly polished game like Bloodborne. The game is absolute perfection though replay value is limited due to absence of a DS like class system and multiplayer is sort of broken due to bullet spamming opponents.

Remember when you used to hear RPG and think of Turn-Based RPG? Good times. Any game now can be classified as an RPG.

SO many RPG games now just suck. What ever append to making kick ass games like the Suikoden games. Or games like Secret of Mana and Final Fantasy 10 just to name a few. Most rpg games have no good story's and just seem boring now. To me the best RPG of all time or at least in my top 5 is Mass Effect 2 and Suikoden 3.
you sound like josh gad. Love that guy reviews are great just 4 ya tone. no homo/lol im married

fallout 4 is not an rpg. just a buggy ego shooter with a building mode. P.S. and it's NOT still good. not for true fallout fans who like to make decisions that actually matter and alter the world. or giving players the option to be whoever they want. fallout 4 is the reason for many to stop playing fallout games. including me.

Bloodborne/DS3 > everything else in this list. Those two games offer only the best experience in the rpg world. Witcher 3 is great but defo doesnt deserve 1st imo
Jairus Mislang Assassins creed and shadow of mordor with rpg elements???? lol did you even play witcher 3?? This game's story, open world, side quests, gameplay and content blows those 2 games out of water. Seriously You need to play it. Souls series is my favourite video game franchise and I have played all of them( my favourite is bloodborne ) but as much I love bloodborne and dark souls, my favourite game of all time is witcher 3. As an RPG, bloodborne has literally no chance of beating witcher 3: no meaningful choices, low build variety etc are some of the rpg aspects where bloodborne isn't at its best.
2nty FIVE (9 months ago)
And plus im kinda confused since you have a ds3 and your username..... Ironic
2nty FIVE (9 months ago)
DARK SOULS COMBAT IS LEGENDARY Ive never really got the appeal of W3. just felt like assassins creed and shadow of mordor with some rpg elements. Try playing bloodborne so you could see something new.
Jairus Mislang Nope, souls games are just action games with rpg elements. Witcher 3 is easily the best rpg

The Witcher 3 is NOT the greatest RPG ever made by man! It's good, but it doesn't raise a candle to a Skyrim for example, or Fallout 4 or Pillars of Eternity or Divinity. .. Where is the sense of development? You have the same sword techniques throughout the whole game, I got bored with the whole fighting bit after 10+ hours... Ok you can upgrade your magic a little bit, but come on! There wasn't much of a challenge in any of the gameplay i.m.o..... The game looks fantastic! That much is true, but as all true GAMErs know, GAMEplay will trump graphics any time 😉 So how much did you get paid to make this commercial? 😂
Rednas 2.0 (9 months ago)
DARK SOULS COMBAT IS LEGENDARY Whatever m8 😉 I've played it, defeated the Wild Hunt in a particularly uneventfull and downright boring final bossfight and couldn't be bothered to even begin playing the DLC... But why do I even explain myself to a troll 😇 I mean, defending the Witcher with the name you've got 😂😂😂
sander faas You didn't play it. BE HONEST you can unlock new melee moves in the skill tree.
Jean Gallo (9 months ago)
This guys a complete idiot. The witcher 3 is not the best rpg ever. The witcher 3 didn't even get nearly as many sales as fallout 4 or skyrim did. People have to hop off of the witcher band wagon.

If action game counts and remake counts, I'm surprised Grand Theft Auto 5 is out of this rank, and the ancestor style of Role Playing Games, JRPG didn't even make it to the top 10, and I believe Persona 5 is out at this time as a Japanese game, so this is English game only I guess
Simon Yu (1 year ago)
No, thank you! For making this list! And thanks for keeping such a humble attitude!
whatoplay (1 year ago)
No problem! And yes, we have had a lot of complaints about our lists. Thanks for the detailed reply about the genres. We need to be as knowledgeable as you are in the different game types. We have time, and we will try to continue growing along with our channel. Again, thank you very much. That was very informative. :)
Simon Yu (1 year ago)
whatoplay Really do appreciate the fast reply, and love you for the Persona 5 ranking: ), although I think the JRPG ranking is a bit uncategorized, for example, Disgaea 5 is what they categorized as SLG, as in Strategy Logical Game, which means the game is in a chess style, like the Final Fantasy Tactics, and even specifically, RPG game that doesn't switch to a battle scene when encounter enemy is what the Fami-con categories as ARPG, Action RPG, since this is becoming the main style people tend to call it RPG directly. :D
whatoplay (1 year ago)
Grand Theft Auto V, with a PlayScore of 9.34, is currently filed under the action adventure tag. As for Persona 5, it was released on April, months after the publication of this video. You might like our recent JRPG list better: goo.gl/6CG5Cq

Hiya ive been recently been getting out of FPS and getting into rpgs with this last E3 i was highly disappointed with sony overall while microsoft destroyed the room,but beside the fact what PS4 RPGs would you recommend, Ive played Dark Souls 3 and thats about it out of this list which would you recommend Choose 2 or add your own Dark Souls 2,Nier Automana, Witcher 3,BloodBorne,Diablo 3 Probably pre ordering Destiny 2,Metro, and Wolfenstien 2 (I got hella cash to blow XD) thanks
_XPak_ (1 year ago)
Thanks for the help and recommendations!!!
whatoplay (1 year ago)
Personally, I'd pick Witcher 3 (*9.29*). But if you like a challenge, I'm sure BloodBorne (*9.20*), Dark Souls 2 (*9.00* on PS3) and its sequel, Dark Souls 3 (*9.18*) will provide that. But all in all, the others have also received great PlayScores: NieR: Automata has a PlayScore of *9.18*, while Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has a PlayScore of *9.15*. If you're into JRPG's, Persona 5 is one of the best of recent times with a PlayScore of *9.36*.

OLD HUNTER Yeah, just in my opinion. I got them good games on deck in case a friend hits me up looking for that good good. We only smoke loud round here, wont be caught dead with no reggie ya dig?

Vova Syhin (1 year ago)
We will never forget the games earlier reactions. Especially Diablo 3 i will not buy or play this game until the online play requirement becomes redundant. Will Blizzard and EA never learn? Will probably have to wait for it to come out on GOG.com before i play it. If that wont happen then Blizzard wont get my money.

This list feels like graphics > everything else. Games that are beautiful =/= best rpg games. Fallout 4 was full of bugs and glitches. Mods literally made that game playable, especially on PC. Diablo 3 being the "definitive" Diablo game to date? Ha. No....

Sebastián Jerez Tbh I really wasnt a big fan either. I played it once n I'm like "eh. It isn't all that." Didn't really like it fr. But a year later I came back to it and actually tried to learn all the mechanics n after that I feel in love with the series. The combat is pretty interesting n actually takes strategy to it, you can't just button mash n expect to win. Each enemie has they're weakness that you can use with your different signs n stuff. Its a amazing. But tbh you actually have to care about the characters going in. With any new game you gonna have to give the game a real fair chance. Because if you don't really care about it n the first place you'll just gonna drop it quick n easy.
