10 Best Modern RPGs That Are Always IGNORED

Resident evil 4 steamhow to get a free game on steam DRAGONS DOGMA: DARK ARISEN steam some RPGs get in sending mainstream recognition and some kind of remained sleeper hits hi folks its Falcon and today on game ranks the ten best RPGs that are always ignored now we have to start with a quick disclaimer on this one we had to set up a couple of ground rules for this list this list isnt in any particular order because these are all really good games and theyre predominantly games from 2010 and up and finally were saving JRPGs for another video in the future that all said lets get started off with number 10 Kingdoms of Amalur reckoning basically if you combine an Elder Scrolls game with god of war thats what this game is and its a game that works really well it has this really cool combat system where you accumulate fate points which allows you to shift into reckoning mode which is kind of a bullet time mode and then theres finishing moves that are beyond cool theres also a lot of fun in the class building in this game but part of the reason this game never really got the kind of attention it deserved is that it was made by a company that was essentially just a vanity project from some executive our retired executive got up one day and said I want to start a video game company and it just so happened this guy was friends with NYT best-selling author RA Salvatore spawn creator Todd McFarlane and elder scrolls oblivion lead designer Ken Ralston and asked them if they all wanted to be part of it and they were like yeah sure Im sure he paid them pretty well too he got like 75 million dollars as a loan to start this company but they made this game and they filed the company for bankruptcy and it never really had the kind of support it needed THQ Nordica actually recently bought the rights and is releasing a remaster in September maybe they will market it in a manner that gets at the attention it kind of deserves but if not still like play this game its one Im sure you will enjoy if the description sounded interesting at number nine is Alpha Protocol its actually a game weve talked about before because its kind of a strange one but a really interesting one it billed itself as the espionage RP gee and although there are a couple of minor flaws in how the combat in this game works the cover system was a little inconsistent it didnt feel like anything had particular weight but this is also a game that comes together as a much better package than any of its singular elements but particularly it just has a very interesting story and very good role-playing systems in place the way dialogue works in the game is actually very interesting youre not given a lot of time to make dialogue choices and it kind of always had specific consequences in the game some choices that you may not even realize had very large consequences and in the end some of its imperfections actually work to its advantage as its a game that has so much charm and obvious love put into it its something that kind of has to be revisited and you can kind of clearly see some of the recent days x-games influence in it and honestly if Microsoft has any brains theyll try to get a sequel or at least a remake of some kind of alpha protocol to get made now that they own obsidian that would be great and number eight is divinity original sin to a game that yes is actually pretty successful but although weve talked about it a lot on this channel are you as likely to be able to bring it up at Thanksgiving as you are to Dark Souls probably not but it kind of deserves that and thats why were bringing it up in this list if you talk to a critic about divinity original sin - they will rant and rave about how amazing it is but is it a household name no and it should be and its because among the types of games it is the sort of isometric baldurs gate style kinda 90s C RPG type game its probably the best one in recent memory and there were some really good ones in recent memory it just let you customize so much about it it gave you so much freedom to sort of build your character build within systems I had such a great story that I just think it deserves to be one of those games thats much much bigger than it is even though its not like a small game that weve never talked about before at number seven is demon souls which were gonna notate is a small exception to the rules in that its 2009 when this game came out demon souls kind of has always lived in the shadow of its more successful successor Dark Souls and theres a remake of it coming sometime in the future thats probably going to be frigging amazing and might get this game the kind of recognition it deserves but Demon Souls is kind of a weirder Dark Souls its just a little stranger a little more goofy not necessarily thing that it has like a sense of humor or anything its still pretty granted but Demon Souls laid so much of the groundwork for Dark Souls as well as had its own cool systems like character tendency and world tendency which would change how difficult the game is depending on how you treated NPCs and how many times you died and having different tendencies could unlock different areas of the game I mean it was just a really interesting game I cannot wait for the remake personally at number 6 is Grim Dawn which is kind of a Diablo like game set in an apocalyptic fantasy world and it got a lot of praise as being kind of a quote-unquote spiritual successor to Diablo 2 but something that I think is unique to it is that one of the points of the game is to rebuild the world where youre kind of going around Diablo in your way through a bad post-apocalyptic situation with the purpose of putting back together a world that is on the brink of humanitys extinction you rebuild structures you rescue people and secure resources and stuff that isnt really normally thought about in these types of post-apocalyptic games but like you do all this stuff as like a badass who was just plowing there with this huge Diablo 2 style quest its just a great game number 5 is outward an open-world RPG where it also brought in a lot of survival elements and this is a game that just had a really interesting look to it its not like particularly detailed or anything but was really willing to go different as far as color schemes and character style it has this really interesting spell casting system thats really really in-depth and it had really interesting co-op which you could do online or as couch co-op split screen honestly I would just call it kind of like a different experience for an RPG because it takes so many of the things that you think about an RPG and just does them in a different way in some ways its even hard to describe because it would just sound like describing an RPG but rest assured its really a different title that does all of the things it does very well its still worth the 40 bucks on Steam I would go for it and number four is Kingdom Come deliverance which was a game that I mean it really tried to do a lot as far as kind of being Witcher without the mysticism set itself during the times of the Roman Empire and tried to be as historically accurate as is possible for a game so you have to keep in mind that I mean it still has to be fun on some level so some things arent completely historically accurate but the combat was really good in it the story was really in-depth and really tried to use its historical setting to the full extent but it also threw a lot at you and it was at times pretty difficult and I think that that made it harder for it to get the mainstream recognition it really deserves but this game was obviously a lot of work and so much went into it the final product is one of those games where youre just like Im frustrated but I cant put it down at number 3 is battle chasers Knight war which is a game youve probably never heard of it got very little attention for how good it actually is lets just say what this is it is an absolutely beautiful incredibly unique dungeon-crawling turn-based kinda JRPG ish kind of C RPG ish just overall really different game that at the same time seems incredibly familiar in every way I wouldnt call it directly a JRPG but its obviously very inspired by it but its also very inspired by D&D and if you just looked at how the dungeons look aside from the art style youd probably think it was a diablo clone but its so colorful beautiful and the gameplay is so engrossing this is a game that you have to play if you havent heard of it and you think oh well a JRPG might be cool or a dungeon caller might be cool its its its all of that and more battle chasers night war is a fantastic game that deserve way more recognition than I got at number two is greed fall which was this very strange colonial RPG which was set in a fantasy world and you go to this island to colonize it and you either end up on the side of the natives or yourself and that sounds pretty straightforward but again this is also a game steeped in mysticism honestly this is just a beautiful game that does such an interesting job of taking something that honestly its kind of grim content colonization is actually pretty violent and awful and it makes you make decisions about it and I will tell you it just does such a great job at it this is one of those games that you have to play it to understand just how enjoyable it is because its not something that you would look at and go oh well but thats super fun it actually looks pretty involved when you just glanced at it and it is but its also a lot of fun and what it makes the player actually confront within themselves honestly I kind of wish more people had to and maybe thats just me as saying something should be more popular because it makes you actually consider things and make decisions for yourself that a lot of things just dont and its just its a fantastic game you should play it if you havent I loved Creed fall and finally number one is Dragons Dogma dark arisen which is a hack and slash that comes to us from Capcom and although the graphics are kinda dated and might turn a few people off however the game itself is really why youre playing it not the graphics its an open-world action RPG that are integrated so well like youre upgrading armor youre upgrading skills youre sort of trying to develop a character that has this straightforward useful to it obviously thats an oversimplification but this game has so much detail in its gameplay that you would be forgiven for not even noticing the story but the story is actually pretty interesting as well it takes a little while for the story to get going also but I think they do a good job making you sort of get into the gameplay mechanics before the story really picks up because you do need to understand this game and I think that thats kind of a pacing choice that makes it a little less accessible to a mainstream audience but once the game gets going its something thats of a quality that deserves more attention few bonus games as well were gonna bring up Dragon Age Inquisition even though it was technically a pretty big success could it have been a bigger success probably I mean it was the most successful launch in Bioware history but its also a game thats just kind of disappeared a lot of our peachys of its caliber were still talking about years later but it also came out around a time a lot of other big titles came out and I think that that kind of has clouded our memory of it a little bit huge game huge response immediately maybe lets talk about it more nowadays this is good looking back on it Ive really loved that game next one is child of light which was actually kind of a JRPG derived idea it was a really cool game in that it was a side scroller that at first glance would seem to be like a platformer of some kind it is not in any way its kind of an in-depth JRPG type game with an active Time battle system that resembles grandia of it like if you timed moves well you could knock enemies turns back and that was just awesome and to the moon which is kind of a JRPG as well although theres not really a lot of battle stuff in it its more of an adventure game that uses a more JRPG framework than a typical adventure game its about trying to fulfill the dream of an elderly man that two doctors have entered the memories of and I mean just play this one its not like super involved but its a really interesting and amazing game and thats all for now do you ever think about how these games all
