  1. your title itself is misleading. PC RPG's should be just that RPGS that are only on PC. No listing of baldurs gate or even the original fallout games? how on the fuck of earth. And skyrim should barely be considered an RPG..

  2. "RPG" … When I am forced to play 1 character and to "uphold" his personality and his goals then its not an RPG. We need a term for that! It's ticking me off that when I look for an RPG to play I get stuff like Witcher (though its a great game) etc.
    Put me in a world and let me make my own character that I can expand within certaint limits. Just because you give us gear and different "talents" to choose from that doesnt make it an RPG. "Hey you are DUDEXXY now, go there and do that" And If dont want to? "Too bad you are this dude now, but hey you can choose what to wear and how to fight" … perfect I get to decide how I want DUDEXXY to kill sh*t but not his morals, motivation, personality, etc. Which ultimately makes every playthrough exactly the same because you are always playing the same dude who kills sh*t and goes to rescue the princess…

  3. Do I need to play the previous witcher games? or can I just hope into witcher 3, i'm not into playing old looking/feeling games

  4. Very good video. Congratulations. I take the opportunity to invite you to see the RPG that I am developing, called Runablanca. It's free and in 3D. It is in an early stage of development. It is are at www.runablanca.com. Thank you.

  5. Dark Souls RPG? Jajajajajaja people don't even know what a RPG game is, the term 'RPG' is pointless these days, kids think everything is rpg.
    Then, you don't even show real gameplay of one of the best in the list, DA Origins.

  6. "There is nothing better …" Yeah … no … can think of 5 games easily who do a better job at being an RPG than Witcher 3.
    It's a good game but not the best RPG…

  7. The fact that fallout 2 and Star wars knights of the old republic is not on the list is insulting. Half these games are barley RPGs .

  8. Binding of Isac is better then Skyrim with 1403 year graphic, your metric is messed up. You cannot compare this kind of games with Skyrim. I

  9. How are these dumb, half ass, arcade indie games rpg and rank higher than games that actually took time and passion to make? What people find in those games I'll never know. Arcade died in the 90s

  10. This so-called list of rpg's is proof that anyone… damn near anyone can post any old crap and garner a bazillion views. Oh, well. At least I know to avoid the post name, now.

  11. Binding of Isaac? And RPG? I wouldn't even call it close to an RPG. There's literally not a single RPG element in the game. The closest thing to an RPG element in Isaac is a MOD called Isaac RPG. What in the world would make you think that Binding of Isaac is, in any way or form, an RPG? If you're going by "you play the role of Isaac" then literally fucking every game ever made is an RPG.
