Although RPG games are very popular on PC, more and more RPGs have arrived on console in the past few years. This is great, because it shows the dedication and focus people have towards making something unique, exciting and very immersive. With that in mind, we created a list that includes some of the best RPGs you can play on PS4 at this time.
Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy is a staple of console gaming and it has continually managed to increase its player base. The 15th installment released a few months ago and it does bring in front some very interesting gameplay mechanics and great ideas. It clearly shows that there is a lot of fun to be had and that on its own is very exciting. The boss battles are amazing and very creative, you still have a tribute to the older games in the series and the story is very good, although fresh and without that many ties to the FF universe at first.
Person 5 manages to bring in front some of the best anime RPG games out there. The story is very impressive and it allows you to enter the world of a few young people that want to become masked vigilantes. It clearly shows the fun and value that you can check out and it also brings in front a clear sense of emotion. I already completed this game on PS3 but still wait for the English version on PS4.
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Nowadays, creating a new IP, especially in the RPG world, can be a double-edged sword. It can be either very successful or it can easily fail. Thankfully, Horizon managed to become a huge success and it does have a lot going for it. Not only is the game very easy to play, but it has a very distinct post-apocalyptic gameplay and robotic creatures roaming the lands. The game looks amazing and it clearly brings in front a very fun story where you follow the adventures of a teenage girl in this massive post-apocalyptic world.
Nioh is one of the best RPGs released this year and it clearly shows that you may take inspiration from other games (Dark Souls in this case), but you can have an amazing game regardless. It all comes down to innovation. The medieval Japan setting is very good and it does provide you with a lot of fun mechanics that you will enjoy. The great thing about Nioh is that it doesn’t hold your hand, once you enter this world you are on your own and you have to survive.
Tales of Berseria
Tales is one of the most popular series on console and PC, with Tales of Berseria being a nice addition here. They added a new HUD and some interesting gameplay mechanics. This shows the attention to detail and value delivered here, not to mention that it does bring in front a great combat system as well.
Overall, there are many RPG games that you should play on a console, but these are some of the best. You should consider giving them a shot as they are a lot of fun, plus you get to immerse yourself in massive, enticing new worlds you can explore right away!
