Whatoplay presents the Top 10 PS4 Role-Playing Games – This ranking is based on a 1 to 10 scoring system that aggregates critic and gamer reviews into a unique score called a PlayScore. As much as new reviews show up, and are added, the PlayScore changes. – 10th in the ranking is Bastion This indie game made it in the list for a lot of reasons. TL;DR?
It blew away a lot of people’s expectations! Gorgeous settings in every level, impeccably good voice acting, memorable soundtrack and a deep, satisfying weapons and upgrade system. However if you’ve already played this game before, then don’t be shocked that there are no changes in it whatsoever. A PlayScore of 8.68 – Number 9 is Child of Light This unique RPG stands out because of its novel yet simple approach to strategic combat. It’s a turn-based gem founded on a meaningful narrative, bewitching setting, and exceptional art style. It’s too bad the characters you meet are not that memorable.
And having conversations in rhyming words does not help at all. Child of Light gets a PlayScore of 8.70 – 8th place is Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance This mega-RPG franchise continues to evolve. A proof that the creators haven’t run out of ideas! A lot of cool new features like the squad system, deep character customization and tons of graphical improvements.
Veteran players will find it all too similar. First-timers, on the other hand, may be overwhelmed with the many options to choose from! Proceed cautiously. A PlayScore of 8.74 – 7th is Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition As a hardcore fan, I found Divinity: Original Sin to be one of the most rewarding and toughest RPG titles to play. An expansive world to explore, very strategic in nature. Environment, objects and status effects plays a very big role in combat and interesting in-game characters and lores.
Surprisingly, the introduction of rock-paper-scissors in convos improved the overall gameplay! A PlayScore of 8.84 – Ranked 6th is Dragon Age: Inquisition A brilliant action RPG that could have been perfect. Disappointing plot aside, it offers a modern roleplaying experience complete with a beautiful, fantastic open world, deep tactical combat and level up system. Compelling characters & meaningful dialogues and hundred of hours of main & side quests! Dragon Age: Inquisition further cements Bioware’s ability at making outstanding RPGs.
It gets a PlayScore of 8.86 – 5th is Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin At first I thought this game was another money-grubbing remaster. Boy was I wrong. It’s the original Dark Souls 2 alright, but with enhanced graphics of up to 60 frames per second.
Enemies in places where you least expect. Plus, all the crown trilogy DLCs! The same punishing game with new surprises for veterans… and a very good start for new players. A PlayScore of 8.93 – Fourth is Fallout 4 It’s definitely one of the most anticipated games of 2015… and it lived up to all the hype! Imagine the old Fallout games just better in almost every way.
Excellent crafting and base building, the gunplay has significantly improved and who doesn’t enjoy blasting creatures in and around Commonwealth? With the amount of things to do in the game, it’s a true time sink! A PlayScore of 9.00 – 3rd is Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition The culmination of two years of patches from the dev team. Ultimate Evil Edition is the pinnacle of Diablo 3. As good as the PC version, almost no framerate drops, even during intense battles. Killstreak improves loot and experience and remarkably accessible to newcomers!
If you ditch the story and go on Adventure Mode, hours of replay awaits! A PlayScore of 9.13 – 2nd best is Bloodborne An Action RPG of epic proportions! The idea of having a shapeshifting arsenal of weapons at your disposal, while at the mercy of grotesque-looking monsters from the souls series is phenomenal! While not as strategic as the other games in the dark soul series, the on-the-fly weapons changing is perfect for stringing combos.
Plus, randomized chalice dungeons give the game even greater replay value. A PlayScore of 9.16 – Stay tuned for the runners-up right after we reveal the number one. – And the best is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt!
A massive open-world RPG that defines the current gaming standard. Explore, slay monsters, get loot, craft items, talk to people, form relationships, and master the art of Gwent. These are just the few things that Wild Hunt offers.
Stunning visuals and characters models, amazing open world setting, great combat, tons of sidequests and additional content and an impeccable storyline to boot! 2015’s Game of the Year, Witcher 3 has a PlayScore of 9.25 – And here are the runners-up.
