"Western-style" role-playing games (RPGs) are increasingly popular. This is one of the most popular genres among PC and console gamers. There are excellent action games that include role-play elements (e.g. Diablo and Dark Souls), massive multiplayer online role-play games (e.g. World of Warcraft and Guild Wars), and futuristic Sci-Fi RPGs (e.g. Fallout and Mass Effect). However, today we are discussing which is the best single-player fantasy RPG series. We have shortlisted three candidates for this popularity contest: Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls and The Witcher.
Dragon Age vs The Witcher vs Elder Scrolls
- Dragon Age, from the Canadian video game developer BioWare, can be considered a successor of classic RPG sagas such as Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. The saga was born in 2009 with Dragon Age Origins: and expanded with Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition, as well as several DLCs, expansion packs and spin offs. In these games players control a small team of adventurers, combat is very tactical and there are hard choices to make.
- The Witcher game series was launched by the Polish developer CD Project RED in 2007. These games are based on a book series with the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski. In the Witcher, The Witcher II: Assassin of Kings and The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, players incarnate the monster hunter Geralt of Rivia. These games have frantic action, nuanced characters, and mature storytelling. The last game of the series,The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, has recreated one of the most impressive open-world experiences in the history of videogames, rivaling Skyrim.
- Elder scrolls, by the American publisher Bethesda Softworks is oldest of the three series and has been running since 1994. Elder Scrolls: Arena, Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have created an unforgettable universe that millions of gamers have spent hundreds of hours of their lives exploring. First-person action, as well as huge and gorgeous open worlds are trademarks of the series. Its latest chapter, Skyrim, has been considered by many the all-time best fantasy role-play game.
Dragon Age, The Witcher, and Elder Scrolls have been critically acclaimed and enjoyed great commercial success, their games have very long campaigns with lots of interesting characters. Although these video game series are all set in medieval fantasy worlds and share many of the typical features of RPGs, each of them has developed its own distinct personality.
