SA Gamer Awards 2021: Best RPG

Being able to immerse ourselves in another world and become another person is one of the best aspects of video games, and there are very few genres that really allow this more than the classic Role-Playing genre. This year, the best the genre had to offer probably came from Japan, with some fantastic JRPGs being released. There was, however, one that stood out above the rest.

Scarlet Nexus

Scarlet Nexus is probably one of the most anime JRPGs made this year. Set in a dystopian future, it features some great combat, slick action and very well-realised characters in a world full of lore. The story is a bit on the linear side with a slightly predictable plot, but you have a ton of customisation options, side missions and options with the character and party members, making it one of the best JRPGs of recent times. Scarlet Nexus is a great game and if you love anime and JRPGs, then this one is definitely worth checking out.
