For those who want a more traditional RPG experience in terms of setting and story, Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen might just be for you. Because you’ll be placed in a vast fantasy world full of darkness and danger, and one of those dangers is technically you.
One of the things Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen does differently is the combat system. You won’t just fight as yourself, but you’ll have three AI characters known as “Pawns” to hang out with and build as you wish. Moreover, the game features all sorts of DLCs that will ensure that your content never ceases.

You play as a Viking in a new land and you must not only create your property, but also fight the other rampaging factions to have true dominance. Fight well, fight faithfully, and when you die you may come to Valhalla.
#8 Sea of Thieves
sea of thieves was a very interesting title announced by Rare years ago, and it was definitely unlike anything they had done before. Mainly because it wasn’t a platformer or shooter, it was a full-fledged multiplayer pirate game!
You decide where you go, what you do, whether you command a ship or just help the crew, and whether you want to try to become the greatest pirate of all time. To their credit, over the years of updates and DLCs, they’ve made the game better and better.
#7 Nier: Automata
Easily one of the most unique RPG experiences of the past decade, Nier: Automata places you in a world where robots have taken over and humanity has been driven out, but not before they’re gone and destroyed. created a set of android “saviors” that they intend to use to try and fight back with all they have. Take on the role of 2B and his fellow androids to battle the robotic monstrosities that now roam this world and attempt to take things back for humans.
#6 Middle-earth: Shadow of War
The Lord of the Rings has seen many video game titles over the years (for better and for worse) and when it comes to Middle-earth: Shadow of War, it is undoubtedly the best of the lot. It continues the original story that takes place in the LotR saga of a fusion of a Ranger and an Elven lord and their unique ring of power. Now, with their enhanced powers, you must go fight in Mordor. With the Nemesis System, you will be able to recruit your own army of people from Mordor, then wage epic sieges and battles against the forces that stand before you.
Will you be able to bring Mordor to its knees?
#5 The Outer Worlds
Obsidian Entertainment is known for making very fun and very deep RPGs, and that’s why The Outer Worlds is arguably one of the best titles in the open world. Although to be fair it is more like an “open space”. Long story short, this is an alternate version of Earth where the corporations have taken over everything, and as a result, everything is pretty much terrible due to the corporate lords choking everyone’s lives, even when they are dead. You are awakened from a cryogenic sleep and must decide if you want to save the colony you are in, or just shoot everything and make it a place where no one survives.
#4 Fallout 4
Fallout 4 continues the large-scale adventures of the nuclear wasteland that is the To fall franchise, and therefore, if you haven’t played this game yet, you’re missing out. You play as the only survivor of Vault 111, who comes out of his “shelter” to find his lost child alongside his dog. Like the previous To fall titles, you will find yourself traversing a large expanse and facing all sorts of threats and dangers as you try to complete your mission. Luckily, you’ll be able to buy and craft weapons to help you deal with these threats.
#3 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt deserves to be near the top of this list. Close to being a perfect game, wild hunt wraps up Geralt’s story in the biggest and best way possible. Flawless gameplay, beautiful graphics, an in-depth conversation system and more await you in this now legendary title. Even when you’ve completed the main story, there are two huge DLCs waiting for you. So toss a coin to your witcher and get started on this adventure!
Some might be surprised that The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim is on this list, mainly because Skyrim has been on every possible system since its initial release on PS3. It’s been several generations of consoles now that we’ve included the Series X.
But the reasoning behind this is simple –The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim is one of the biggest and best games ever made, and it doesn’t matter if you play it on an older or newer system. It’s a title that has so much content that you could play it for a decade without getting bored.
#1 Elden Ring
We started with a banger, and now we’re ending with what could potentially be the game of the year. Ring of Elden is arguably the magnum opus of the entire FromSoftware library, and that’s saying something because they’ve made some big, bold games before.
What sets Ring of Elden apart from the fact that it is truly an open-world game, which means you will be able to enjoy dark souls– like battles on a huge map that’s full of places to explore, bosses to fight, and new ways to equip your character so they can handle what’s to come.
