- This is my first community thread. I'd appreciate any and all feedback.
- This thread is for discussion of all RPGs.
- What is an RPG? Scholars are working on solving the question as we speak.
- I'll add new entries as they're contributed.
- Keep them to 80-140 words and focused on aspects that really spoke to you.
- Kenshi is a sandbox RPG, and is one of the best examples of emergent narratives because of it. The world of Kenshi is a cruel one. Wander too far from the safety of civilization and you'll likely be attacked by Dust bandits, become enslaved, or much worse. It's a game where I can play for 100 hours and barely survive being eaten by cannibals, while another another has a completely different experience by establishing a settlement. This results in incredible stories that are unique to you. The world is desolate, yet oddly breathtaking, and the soundtrack matches this. Contributed by Arulan
- Kingdom Come: Deliverance is my favorite open-world RPG in over a decade. The simulation of the world's inhabitants and the incredible attention to detail of quests goes a long way to making you believe in the world. It's one of those rare games where you think I wonder if this would work, and it almost always does. This isn't just a game where you can turn off quest markers, it feels like it was designed to be played without them. Great writing, beautiful landscapes, and new heights to immersion.
