Role Playing Games are the all time favourite game category which is loved by every pro-gamer. We have gathered and listed below 6 popular RPG games which every RPG Lover must plays once a week.
Into the Dark: Narakan
The game takes place across gridded levels. You can move the little blue character one square up, down, left, or right. When you do though, the monsters, ghouls and various other things that want to kill you make a move as well.
You start off woefully under-powered. Your little broken sword can only attack squares diagonally next to you. And you need to figure out how to use it as well. There’s a box at the bottom of the screen with three spaces in it, and after a few plays you’ll work out these represent your skills and weapons. Then you work out where to get them from.
There are spells too, and they don’t just impact the beasts you use them on. Set a monster on fire, for example, and it’ll wander around for a few more turns spreading the flames to any square it lands on. You can chain lightning bolts, and use vines to entangle enemies.
You always know where danger is. Squares that an enemy can attack in its next turn are highlighted, and you need to puzzle your way through, killing when you can but for the most part avoiding the attentions of the skittering black creatures that populate the game.
Severed is an action-adventure, Role – Playing video game developed and published by DrinkBox Studios for the PlayStation Vita, iOS, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch. It was released on April 26, 2016, in North America and Europe for the PlayStation Vita, and it was released on Wii U and iOS on September 22, 2016. It was released on Nintendo 3DS in Europe on September 22, 2016, North America on October 13, 2016. It was released in Japan on December 28, 2016.
On April 14, 2014, DrinkBox Studios announced Severed in association with video game blog Destruction. Because of its heavy focus on touch screen controls, Severed was anticipated as a game for mobile devices, though DrinkBox Studios was considering versions for other devices like the PlayStation Vita, the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U, too. Motion-sensing technologies like PlayStation Move and Kinect were considered.
However, the developers did not confirm the game for any of these platforms at that time. DrinkBox Studios was aiming for a release of Severed in 2015. At the PlayStation Experience 2014 in December, DrinkBox Studios announced that Severed would be released on PlayStation Vita, continuing the trend of DrinkBox’ previous games of releasing on PlayStation platforms first. After being delayed, DrinkBox Studios announced on April 11, 2016, that Severed would be released for PlayStation Vita on April 26.
Lineage 2: Revolution
Lineage 2: Revolution is a massively multiplayer online role – playing game (MMORPG) developed by Netmarble for mobile platforms under license from NCSoft, taking place 100 years before the events of NCSoft’s Lineage II: Goddess of Destruction story line. It is part of the Lineage series.
Like many massively multiplayer online role – playing games, the player starts by creating a character and choosing its race. Available races are: Human, Elf, Dark Elf, Dwarf, Orc and in the latest update, the Kamael. Each race specialises later in different classes, such as warrior, mage, and archer. The player progresses through the game by taking quests and killing mobs. The vast majority of the game, though, is afk grinding.
The game is set in the same world of Lineage II, originally released in 2003, and features instanced dungeons, player versus player (PvP), clan wars, raids and a series of quests to advance the story line. However, the game-play has been specifically adapted to better fit mobile devices by Netmarble; for example, quests are automated, with the character executing them automatically and even killing enemies alone after selecting a quest.
Warhammer Quest 2
Warhammer Quest is a fantasy dungeon, role-playing adventure board game released by Games Workshop in 1995 as the successor to Hero Quest and Advanced Hero Quest, set in its fictional Warhammer Fantasy world. The game focuses upon a group of warriors who join together to earn their fame and fortune in the darkest depths of the Old World.
Mainly written by Andy Jones, Warhammer Quest utilises a set of simple game mechanics to simulate the Warriors’ actions as they explore and fight through the dungeons of the Old World. The game puts a strong emphasis on co-operative and thoughtful play by the players in order to survive against the myriad monsters they inevitably face. Primarily designed for four players, the original game continues the tradition of Hero Quest by supplying a Barbarian, Wizard, Dwarf, and Elf as its main Warriors.
Darkest Dungeon is a role-playing video game developed by Red Hook Studios and published by Merge Games. The game was first released for Microsoft Windows and OS X in January 2016, which followed a year-long early access development period. Later that year, it was released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Linux, with ports for iOS being released in 2017, and Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One being released by 2018.
Darkest Dungeon is a role-playing game in which the player manages a roster of heroes and adventurers to explore these dungeons and fight the creatures within. Prior to entering a dungeon, the player can use facilities in a town near the mansion to dismiss or recruit more heroes, send heroes to perform various activities that will heal them, gain new combat or camping skills, reduce their stress, or remove any afflictions that they incurred while in a dungeon, and buy and sell equipment and supplies to outfit their heroes, using money and loot gained during dungeon runs.
Many of these facilities can also be improved to add more benefits or options to the player. The player can recruit up to 28 (or 30 on easiest difficulties) heroes on their roster once the stagecoach has been fully upgraded; each hero belongs to one of fifteen character classes, and has their own statistics and skills that can be upgraded over time. If a hero dies while exploring a dungeon, that hero is lost for good.
A core element of Darkest Dungeon is its Affliction system, a concept of a hero’s stress level or resolve. Though a hero will have little stress when they are hired, it will worsen from a number of factors encountered while in a dungeon, such as adventuring without food or light sources, seeing the death or wounding of a fellow party member in battle, or from blights cast on them by enemies.
If the hero’s high stress remains unchecked, they may develop afflictions that will interfere with the behaviour of the character, such as being frightened and unable to fight directly. Less frequently, a stressed character may develop virtues that enhance their attributes, such as becoming more invigorated within battle. Some afflictions, left unchecked, may become permanent quirks that remain on the character.
Other afflictions can be removed back in the village and by performing special activities, such as drinking at a bar or repenting at a church, that occupy the character’s time, preventing them from being part of a dungeon party. Allowing a hero to reach an extremely high stress level can cause them to have a heart attack, bringing them to the brink of death if not immediately tended to.
Stress can be lowered while in a dungeon through camping offered at specific locations, or other restorative items, as well as when back in the nearby town. While camping, the characters will have another set of available skills that can be used to help relieve stress and help with other party members.
There are two other game modes aside from darkest mode, which is the “Normal” mode for Darkest Dungeon. The first is Radiant mode, designed to reduce the length of time to complete the campaign without compromising the core difficulty with the game. In Radiant mode, level limitations are less strict, the player gets to recruit stronger heroes and hero XP gain is accelerated.
The second mode is the Stygian mode, which is a much more difficult and challenging mode. Stygian mode not only has enemies with increased health and damage and an increase in light depletion but a failure condition.
Rogue Trader is a Science – Fiction Role – Playing Game published in 2009 that uses the warhammer 40,000 Role Play system. In Rogue Trader, the player characters are important members of ship crews in interstellar trade and exploration, often encountering Xenos.
In Rogue Trader, players take the role of a Rogue Trader and their crew as they operate outside the stellar and legal boundaries of the Imperium. The book provides, among other things, rules for interplanetary commerce and spaceship operation, travel, combat, and customisation.
