A thing we're excited to do on Just About Video Games is build a definitive community-sourced list of the very best games ever, across various genres. You know the ones we mean - every major gaming site does them - but what do gaming communities think?
It's time to find out, and we're starting with role-playing games. It has been a summer of plenty for RPG fans; we've had Baldur's Gate 3, Starfield, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, Sea of Stars, Lies of P, and soon, Assassin's Creed Mirage. Fans of epic character- and story-driven gaming in exotic worlds are absolutely spoiled in terms of both quantity and quality, so the timing feels right to take stock of the genre as a whole.
Nominate one RPG as the best RPG of all time, and justify your choice. No need for a full review, but at least a couple of paragraphs - minimum 300 words - of thoughtful analysis explaining why it deserves to be on a list of all-timers. The best entries will win $10!
NB we plan to build our list in stages to keep it current and growing in line with our community, so if you miss out this time, this bounty will (probably) be coming around again!
