Top 10 PS3 Role Playing Games (RPG)

10. Majin and The Forsaken Kingdom

Boasting a beautifully compelling story and built around a rewarding fusion of stealth and action, Majin and The Forsaken Kingdom. Taking place in one of the most richly designed worlds in the genre and truly interesting characters, this underrated modern classic is long overdue for a reappraisal. With fantastic pacing and a perfect balance between exploration, combat and puzzles, this one is a must-see for fans of the genre.

9. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

This exciting chapter in the Dragon’s Dogma franchise delivered a huge new area filled with missions, enemies and more – plus, all the content from the original game. The result is a game that will keep you entertained for many hours as you journey across the cursed Bitterblack Isle facing terrifying foes, embarking on many quests and taking your hero to new heights with new high-level skills and augments.

8. Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch

This beautifully realised RPG combines both western and Japanese styles of gameplay, resulting in a unique and addictive title. With stunningly animated cutscenes by Studio Ghibli, a tactical yet simple combat system and a myriad of secondary quests and mini-games, this one is packed with content. As you join Oliver on a quest across a strange new world, you will be immersed in a variety of incredible environments, landscapes and cities.

7. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

This intense and richly designed adventure is packed with riveting storyline and exploration, incredible combat and rich customisation. One of the biggest and best RPGs on the PS3, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is never discussed in the same breath as Skyrim and Dragon Age and that is a crime. The result is an absolute masterpiece of the RPG genre and a game that deserves to be considered one of the finest titles on the PS3.

6. Dragon Age: Inquisition

With an engrossing character-driven story and a diverse, stunning and immersive world to explore, Dragon Age: Inquisition’s player-shaped world will keep you busy for many hours. With the freedom to completely customise the appearance and abilities of your hero, followers, outposts and strongholds, there is certainly enough content here to keep you busy beyond the lengthy story mode. This phenomenal RPG certainly lives up to the word epic.

5. Demon’s Souls

One of the most unique examples of the genre, Demon’s Souls combes the best aspects of the RPG and action adventure genres, resulting in a stunning game that has you slicing, smashing and shooting your way through vicious enemies in an immersive open-ended narrative with several paths to journey down. With endless customisation and the ability to pursue and refine skills of your choosing, this is an incredible action RPG title that deserves its legendary status as one of the finest RPG titles on the PS3.

4. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

One of the most celebrated titles in the RPG genre, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is an absolutely iconic title. Best experienced with friends, this addictive adventure allows you to choose your character from a range of unique classes before levelling up throughout the game to unlock devastating powers and legendary equipment. With a focus on button-mashing action and grinding, Diablo III is a game that rewards your time – expect to pump hours into this one.

3. Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls titles are not games that you complete – the main quests are only a tiny part of the content, with the world themselves taking more of players’ time. My fondest memories are not of beating quests, but rather exploring Tamriel, speaking to people, reading into the lore through the in-game literature, and trading. There is just so much going on here that it will consume your life – but in the best possible way. An absolute marvel of gaming. 

2. Fallout 3

One of the biggest and best RPGs in gaming, Fallout 3 is a masterpiece that will take over your life. As you tread the line between good and evil and scour the post-apocalyptic wasteland, prepare to embark on one of the best adventures on the PlayStation 3 – now packed with oodles of DLC content in the Game of the Year Edition. Will you be a good citizen or a dastardly villain?

1. Persona 5

Persona 5 is not just one of the longest games on the PS3, but one of the best. It is a masterpiece. This unforgettable Japanese RPG is packed with vibrantly stylised visuals, elegant anime cut-scenes and a stunning soundtrack from Shoji Meguro. The result is a phenomenal game, and it is generally considered to take up to and over 100 hours to complete - especially as patience and slow, thoughtful play is rewarded.
