Featured post

The latest version of this list – it’s first update in four years – removed and added 11 games. Those added are noted below, but those we’ve retired were Dungeon Master, Space Rangers 2, Pool Of Radiance, Eye Of The Beholder 2, Darklands, Betrayal At Kondor, Ultima Underworld 2, Zangband, FTL, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Sunless Sea.

What’s missing from the final list? We’ve certainly excluded many a worthy game. We’re light on JRPGs, for example, and there are a few games that would have cracked the top 50 if we’d been comfortable classifying them as RPGs. There are undoubtedly games you feel should have been included but the important thing is that we’re right this collection of games, demonstrates the rich variety of life in the RPG oceans and should provide you with plenty of squirming games to enjoy, discuss and celebrate. Please make your own recommendations nicely in the comments. Remember: the game you love was 51st.
