5 Role Playing and Real Time Strategy Games You Should Consider

RTS vs TBS: What Are They and How Are They Different? - Plarium

Are you looking for role playing and real time strategy games? Then you are looking at the right list.

Quick facts:

Strategy game genre was first invented in 1938 when Winston Churchill looked out of an airplane window and thought about how cool a videogame it will make. Since then, there have been about a hundred million strategy games.

Here are 5 role playing and real time strategy games you should consider. (NB- You can check out some games review on Reviewsbird.com)

1.    The Crusader Kings 3

The crusader kings games are strategy/RPG hybrids. This means that apart from spending time commanding troops and conquering territory, you will also spend time fretting about the day to day life of the ruler you are controlling. You will have to pay attention to every detail of your family drama which is as important as the southern front. If not, your ruler collapses on the throne room and when he does, you will assume control of their heir and live with the consequences of your previous actions.

The Crusader Kings is therefore a grand strategy game which has been true with previous games in the series. However, Crusader 3 has a more refined interface so you can focus on the characters more than the numbers that underpin them. If you have not played crusader kings before, then the CK3 is where you should start. And if you are a seasoned player of the CKs then you don’t need to be told what is great about the series.

2.          Endless Legend

Endless legend boasts of a large number of different factions and procedurally generated maps. This has made it the go-to-for a 4X game in a fantasy setting. Sure, you will lose a lot of sleep over the many side quests that pop out as you are exploring but like several entries of the Total war franchise, it gives you hero units that are vital to battle and also offers you different diplomatic options that do not have to end with someone losing their head.

3.          Europa Universalis 4

In Europa Universalis, you get to write history yourself which makes it stand out among other games that make you a part of history. With no fixed win states, Europa Universalis lets you run wild with historical events while still keeping the rails on. It has an interesting concept which appeals to both those who are yet to find the grand strategy game with the perfect setting and history buffs. However, its intricate system makes it difficult to get into for beginners.

4.          StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty

Starcraft is one of the games that turn out to be pillars of the genre. It is only fair that its successor really offers more of the same but in a shinier package of course. The Starcraft 2 presentation is very astounding even after a decade of its … Read More..

Best Roleplaying Games

Action RPG
What is an adventure quest RPG? Also an encounter is usually turned based, in which a character performs an action per turn. In my opinion, this game is perfect for the player who wants to see some of the best the SNES had to offer in terms of RPGs. It is a typical turn based RPG with the player having control of over 15 playable characters each one with his or her own strengths and weaknesses and different fighting styles and stories to tell.

The best selling and most popular game on the Playstation, Final Fantasy VII is not rare at all but very expensive still. The player can increase this number by buying backpacks from merchants that increment that maximum by 10 each time. It doesn’t strive for amazing storyline or gameplay, just simple hack and slash glory and it does it pretty well.

These problems aside, the graphics for its day, when compared to other games out at the time, were considered to be very quite advanced. You play through the tale of their war, but as seen through each characters eyes. The inventory system and character information will be familiar if you’ve played Neverwinter Nights 2. The layout and workings of it are the same idea, which should prove pretty intuitive for most players.

The newest entry in the hugely popular (in Japan) Tales saga, Symphonia was a huge, fun, well told game. There are always ways to expand the difficulty of the game and make each play through a unique experience. Hailed as one of the best video games of all time, it’s no surprise that Final Fantasy VII sits atop this prestigious list.

Bastion Review, The Kid’s Story

Action RPG
The original PlayStation system was one of the best selling consoles of all time but there are many games for the system that are hard to find. Final Fantasy VIII was an exhilarating experience that has earned its place on this list. Firstly, any RPG is a Role Paying Game, which is supposed to have a character, and a system of his development. The first RPG PC games offered a single player experience. As an experienced soldier, The Kid, I mean we players try to find and save all other survivors among monsters in different parts of the map.

This is if you want to obtain what is called a “complete” gaming experience meaning gathering all of the most powerful weapons, armor, and magic, and also leveling characters up to maximum levels. Each character is fully realized and a part of the action, their story an intricate part of the game.

Final Fantasy VIII had a lot to live up to. Its predecessor is regarded as one of the best games of all time, and everyone was expecting VIII to continue that trend. Other influences during this period were text adventures, Multiple-User Dungeons (MUDs) and roguelike games.
