If you play games sometimes, you might have heard of one thing, that's called an RPG game. So, what is that kind of mysterious thing?
Well, in a few words, the player takes a 'role' of someone called a hero, basically just a character, and advances through the story game as that specific character.
Now, when we shed some light on it, and you probably even would like to play and try yourself in the role of that neat, self-confident, and humble character, the question occurs: which game should I choose?
So, let me help you with a genre of the very game you will be immersed in and begin your journey in the RPG world!
In ARPG, the player controls one character, and all that will bother him is the battle, leaving behind the semantic load from the plot and other aspects. Simply put, you'll fight in a blood bath for a pair of new gloves or pants. At the same time, you will like it a lot.
Deservedly expected to be here, Diablo series by Blizzard Entertainment. The plot of each of the games in the series is straightforward. You play as a warrior who fights against demons, cutting his way through the dungeons under the medieval kingdom of Sanctuary. Through the game, there will be a lot of blood and bodily fluids blowing from the bad guys. And it's worth to play it.
A very well-known genre by everyone - something that came about from the merger of RPG and MMO games, in which a huge number of players interact with each other through various actions and communication in the virtual world. Over time, the so-called subculture has developed in the community of this genre with its words and phrases, as well as an unwritten list of rules and prohibitions. In such forums, community talk about 'buffs' and 'nerfs', and other things that bother every MMORPG fan.
We all know which game should represent this genre. Of course, World of Warcraft developed and released by Blizzard Entertainment in 2004. Ignoring the fact that this is the largest-scale MMORPG, this game has given many unforgettable experiences and hours of play exploring the landscape, fighting various monsters, completing quests, and interacting with NPCs or other players. And if we also mention the legacy that this game has acquired... So., let's just continue.
In games of this genre, the player has freedom compared with a large open world through which he can move freely, where the player is not restricted to one path. Such games have a large number of interactive NPCs and, as a rule, require a huge number of hours to explore all the contents of this giant world, in addition to the storyline of the game.
Speaking about games of this genre you can not ignore The Elder Scroll series developed by Bethesda Softworks. Many, including me, consider this series a masterpiece of game art. Why is that so? Endless valleys and cities of Tamriel, the most delicious mead, daedric artifacts... And you know what, go and try it yourself!
Games of this genre are characterized by going through dungeons that are generated in many levels with new puzzles and monsters on each level, where you don't know when and how unexpectedly your character will die next time.
And I would like to represent you a notable and wonderful game - Pixel Dungeon developed and released by Retronic Games in January 2013. This game has everything you need to have a good time in the game: potions, spell runes, for each of the four classes there are various bonuses. It also includes the most important thing in games of this genre - repeated death, so you can enjoy the game many times.
Tactical RPGs pay great attention to movement, combat clashes, which are divided into separate maps and positioning. Moreover, factors such as careful consideration of the terrain are important for victory.
A great example of a tactical RPG is Shadowrun: Hong Kong developed and released by Harebrained Schemes on August 20th, 2015. This turn-based tactical RPG will completely charm you with its exciting story, which includes deception and evil, which will amaze you in the most condescending situations.
