2011 was a good year for RPGs with role-playing kings Bioware and Bethesda both sticking their hands into the ring. The games below rose to the top through excellent gameplay, great storylines and characters and most of all, just being damn fun to play.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Do you want to play a game where you can become a virtual hoarder? How about a game where you can level so high that you can slay a dragon in one mighty blow? Well Skyrim is your ticket to a good time. Buy it on PC
Star Wars: The Old Republic
This is essentially World of Warcraft in a Star Wars setting. Which is perfectly fine, there is no point fixing something that isn’t broken. Geek out in this (relatively) new MMO from our friends at Bioware. Buy it on PC
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
The first Witcher game had quite a cult following but failed to capture the large market. The Witcher 2 brought more of a familiar RPG feel while still keeping The Witcher’s story line and grittiness which lead it to becoming one of the highest rated games of 2011. Buy it on PC
