You know the drill. This is not spoiler free. Some content within are MAJOR spoilers that might occur toward the end of a particular game or open it up entirely. If you see a game you’ve played, but not very much, or a game you’d be interested in playing, BACK OUT AND DON’T LOOK BACK. You’ve been warned.
This was a HUGE year for RPGs, at least if you go off the numbers. There are 30 games! This was not an easy pick, so don’t think I just randomly selected these. I almost wish I’d done a top 10 list for this year because a lot of the RPGs are just plain incredible. Also, with apologies to Bruce here. This is the year of Baldur’s Gate, but you might not like what I have to say about it.
