The best PC RPGs | Tom’s Guide

The best PC RPGs can help you unwind, or lose yourself completely in a different world. Perhaps you’ll pick up a sword and shield and save a kingdom from a marauding dragon. Perhaps you’ll join a group of eco-freedom fighters in a quest against an evil corporation. Perhaps you’ll simply lose your mind while trying to solve an impossible murder. One all of these games have in common is that they’re deep, lengthy adventures that will keep you hooked from start to finish.

Tom’s Guide has compiled a list of the best PC RPGs, from Japanese classics to modern Western hits. Whether you need to relax for a few hours after work or completely immerse yourself in a story for weeks on end, here are some of our favorite RPGs from fantasy to sci-fi and beyond.

Baldur’s Gate II takes the same basic formula, then makes it accessible for everyone, thanks to better graphics, an improved quest log, a higher level cap and a generous amount of voice acting.
