SA Gamer Awards 2018 – Best RPG

2018 has been a good year for RPG fans and there almost wasn’t enough time to truly enjoy them all.  From watching Assassin’s Creed grow up and become a fully fledged RPG to how Monster Hunter World pleased veterans and newcomers alike to the sprawling pen and paper styled CRPG Pillars of Eternity 2.

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire

When I think back on RPGs of this year, Deadfire always pops up. It moved the story along in an interesting way while offering a hop on point to new players. Depowered and left for dead, you chase after a colossal statue with the spirit of a god inside of it, as it moves around the islands of Deadfire. Get ready to explore new islands, make friends and enemies and get involved in the politics of a proud but occupied people who are tired of the various trading companies siphoning wealth and cultural treasures away from their land. It is a complex, rich game full of adventure and interesting characters, just waiting to be explored.

Runner-Up:  Monster Hunter World
Honourable Mentions: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Octopath Traveler

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
