10 Best Selling RPG Games Right Now

RPG players can’t get enough of RPGs. Heck even I’m always finding another RPG every week or so. It’s sort of a ‘thing’. It’s a struggle trying to find a solid RPG that you just want to sink hours into, even if I can still squeeze out a few more hours here and there with Skyrims vast selection of mods, or Pokémon collecting (not Pokémon Go).
I’ve been wanting to gather a list of the best selling RPG games at this moment. And, well I have! Below you’ll find 10 of the best selling RPGs right now.

1. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Day One Edition

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided takes place two years after Human Revolution. As Adam Jensen, you’re faced with the result of the Aug Incident, where the augmented became insane and lost control of themselves, causing them to attack others.

The game sounds pretty interesting, but personally I won’t be getting it anytime soon because of other games such as Final Fantasy 15, Horizon Zero Dawn and Legion. I haven’t really touched a Deus Ex game properly since the first game, but I did dabble in Human Revolution a bit.


2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

Ah, Skyrim! The game where you’ll lose hours with ease. It’s been almost 5 years and it’s still a very popular game. It’s essentially the same game as before, with the added bonus of mods for both PS4 and Xbox One consoles, all add-ons and of course updated graphics. But the biggest thing going for it are the mods. To this date, I still play Skyrim from time to time to see if any great mods have been added (Midas Magic is fantastic!).

I’ll be picking this up for PS4, but only when it’s been brought way down in price.

 3. The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 is a must play. It has mythical creatures, cities, villages, horses, quests, magic, swordplay, a great story and more.

The Wild Hunt are after someone specific. Someone close to Geralt, who he holds dear. It’s up to you to keep them from that person.

I recommend this game for any RPG fan. You need to play it if you haven’t already!

 4. Pokemon Y

Pokemon games are generally loved, no matter which one it is and Pokemon Y (also X) is no exception. It gives the game a refreshing twist by improving on the 3D graphics, new sub-types and and a temporary evolution known as Mega Evolution.

 5. Persona 5 “Take Your Heart” Standard or Collectors Edition

Despite not playing any of the previous Persona games, this one does look pretty intriguing. You play as the 16-year-old protagonist who is sentenced to probation and sent to Syjuin High School. From this point forward, you meet Ryuji Sakamoto, Anne Takamaki and even a talking cat-like creature (Morgana). Together, you explore The Palace (representing distorted adult minds) and steal hidden treasure.

If that doesn’t intrigue you…I don’t know what will!

6. Final Fantasy 15: Day One Edition

Final Fantasy 15 has kept my gaze on it ever since I played the Platinum Demo, especially the last part of it.
There’s conflict between Nifleheim and Lucis. Nifleheim plan to steal its crystal has left the city of Insomnia in ruin. Playing as Noctis with others in your team, you must fight Nifleheim and retrieve the crystal.

7. Dark Souls 3

Dark Souls 3 is an incredible RPG. The game is set in the Kingdom of Lothric, where you need to face the Lords of Cinder and other nightmarish creatures. This game will absolutely test your patience and sanity.

8. The Last Guardian Standard or Collector’s Edition

This list just keeps getting more and more exciting. The Last Guardian is a narrative told by an old man, telling you of his adventures with a griffin-like creature, when he was a just a boy. There’s one thing for sure…it’ll be on my shelf after it’s released! What about you?

9. Horizon Zero Dawn Standard or Collector’s Edition

To put it simply, Horizon Zero Dawn is set in a world where Machines have taken over. You play as Aloy, a skilled archer who can hack these metallic creatures, loot them for materials and use all sorts of techniques to take them out. It’s an open world game with a fully functional day-night and weather system, with no loading screens. Sounds pretty damn good to me!

10. Mass Effect: Andromeda

The long awaited Mass Effect: Andromeda takes place a very long time after the previous game. You play as Ryder, set out on a mission to find suitable planet to colonize.

I’ve only really played a few hours of the first Mass Effect, and while it was good…I couldn’t get into it for some reason. Perhaps it was because I was way too late since all three were already out and I felt that I was behind. But with the next chapter coming out soon, I might just straight into it.

Yes I know, you might be wondering why most of these are PS4 versions. Well  it’s because PS4 games are selling more right now.
