2020 is turning into a fantastic year for RPG fans. RolePlaying games have always had a special place in my heart so I am super excited. Sure I like other kinds of games and I play plenty of them. But over the years I have noticed that most of my favorites have been RPGs with good stories.
So here is the list of what I am looking forward to this year!
My Top 3 RPG picks of 2020
Release Date: December 10, 2020 | Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One | Price: $59.99
Update 12-21-2020: The game is out now and I have my Cyberpunk 2077 review posted.
I guess I really do not know much about the Cyberpunk world. I never played the tabletop game. There is also not been a lot of details from CD Projekt Red. 90% of what I know about the game came from the game demo at E3. But it looked really good. I am also taking into account their history on the Witcher RPGs. So I feel like Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be very good.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
Q2-Q4 2020 | Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One | Price $59.99
Update: It sounds like this game as been pushed back to 2021. 🙁
Today we have an important announcement in regards to the release date of Bloodlines 2. 🦇 pic.twitter.com/M3xR5qOOpN— Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 (@VtM_Bloodlines) August 11, 2020
The original game came out around 16 years ago. It is a classic and ranks as one of my favorite RPGs to this day. Sure it had some issues and bugs. I heard development was rushed at the end and they could not finish it the way they wanted to. But there is not any other game like it to this day.
With all that being said I have high hopes for the second game!
Baldur’s Gate 3
Release Date: 2020 | Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One | Price: Unknown
This is another game franchise I do not know much about. But I managed to stumble into the live demo of this game and it looks amazing. After watching the demo I did some research on the story and lore and it sounds cool. So I can’t say much more about this one. Almost everything I know is from the live demo but it looks like a RPG I want to play.
RPGs I would play if they were on PC
I am not a console gamer. The only reason I got a Play Station in the past was for all the Final Fantasy games. I also have a Nintendo DS. But now that most games are ported to PC I would rather wait for the PC release.
But there are a few games that look interesting to me. Final Fantasy VII Remake and Bravely Default 2. I know the Final Fantasy game is coming to PC one day but I am not sure about Bravely Default. I loved the first one on the Nintendo DS so I hope it makes it to PC one day. But I doubt it. 🙁
