The RPG scene was a little scarce this year, but there were still come great entries. A surprising amount of JRPGs didn’t quite make a splash this year outside of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, both owned by Square Enix. Western RPGs have been dominating sales charts for years and that trend continues this year.
Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy XV is a beast of an RPG with a long history. Starting out as Final Fantasy Versus XIII back in 2006 the game saw a huge following and for several years we thought it would never happen. While it is flawed, the sheer epic scale and revolutionary change for the series to break away from traditional JRPG tropes that it helped create it just amazing to see. That’s not to say other RPGs this year weren’t great with Tyranny being a strong second.
