Favorite PC Electronic Role-Playing Games from Someone Who Loves RPGs

A Listmania! list by Kristin Richardson (St. Louis, MO United States)
The list author says: "This list includes some of my all-time favorite computer and console role-playing games. I've also included games that bridge the gap between action and RPG or strategy and RPG. If you level up in the game, it qualifies for this list. Remember: it's my favorites, not "the best"."
Mass Effect 2 - PC
1.  Mass Effect 2 - PC by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "I thought ME2 had better voice acting, better controls, better graphics, and an even more exciting story than its predecessor. Oh yeah, and more romance options than the first, as well. (Bioware, you cheeky monkeys!) My favorite of all time as of October 2011."
$5.90   Used & New from: $1.90
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (343 customer reviews) | 14 customer discussions

Fallout 3: Game of The Year Edition (PC)
2.  Fallout 3: Game of The Year Edition (PC) by Bethesda
The list author says:
  "Probably my favorite CRPG of all time when it came out. Great post-apocalyptic environment. Bethesda doesn't do story telling so much, which knocks this one back a notch, but the gameplay and online community additions really help this game out."
$10.00   Used & New from: $5.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (292 customer reviews) | 8 customer discussions

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic - PC
3.  Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic - PC by LucasArts
The list author says:
  "When this game came out, it very quickly became my favorite CRPG of all time. I played the entire game through four times (good male, evil male, good female, evil female). This was really Star Wars in a way that the three prequels never managed to be. Even my wife, who doesn't do computer games, played this one, the story was so engaging."
$17.46   Used & New from: $7.35
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (362 customer reviews) | 9 customer discussions

Mass Effect
4.  Mass Effect by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "A really original game that tells a truly engaging story. It's science fiction, action-oriented, AND an RPG! What more could you ask for? Oh yeah... and it's written by Bioware, the best story-tellers in the business, in my opinion."
$10.49   Used & New from: $8.10
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Edition - PC
5.  Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Edition - PC by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "I liked this game so much I bought it twice - once when it first came out, and again when the ultimate edition came out. I've played through the main campaign 3 times, and the Awakenings and DL content twice. I just find it that fun. And the story telling is superb, as with all Bioware fare."
$11.49   Used & New from: $5.48
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (347 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Baldur's Gate 4 in 1 Boxset
6.  Baldur's Gate 4 in 1 Boxset by Interplay
The list author says:
  "Get the boxed set. The first game, with it's add-on, I liked because you get to explore the entire country side. The second I like, because you get a keep (castle, wizard's tower, etc.) and gain higher levels. Both are great games that take place in my favorite DnD campaign setting, and incorporate outstanding (OUTSTANDING) story telling."
$16.90   Used & New from: $8.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (135 customer reviews) | 12 customer discussions

Master of Magic
7.  Master of Magic by Microprose
The list author says:
  "Still my favorite game of all time. More strategy than RPG, but there's enough there to give me an excuse to include it on the list."
$299.95   Used & New from: $14.00
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Infinite Space - Nintendo DS
8.  Infinite Space - Nintendo DS by Sega Of America, Inc.
The list author says:
  "This game is so fun, I had to include it. The only drawback is you really need a walk through to find some of the recruitable crew members and blueprints. Other than that, the game is a blast to play through, with it's engaging story about an alien race coming to conquer an unsuspecting galaxy."
Used & New from: $29.95

PROTOTYPE - PC
9.  PROTOTYPE - PC by Activision
The list author says:
  "Despite mechanically being very close to a complete rip-off of Ultimate Spider-Man, this dark, action-oriented RPG is a load of fun with an interesting story."
$12.99   Used & New from: $2.81
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (65 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Resident Evil 5 - Xbox 360
10.  Resident Evil 5 - Xbox 360 by Capcom
The list author says:
  "A fun game that gets even better after beating it once and unlocking unlimited ammo. If only I'd had the 3D glasses..."
$13.84   Used & New from: $0.67
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (285 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Final Fantasy Tactics
11.  Final Fantasy Tactics by SquareSoft
The list author says:
  "I'm not much a FF fan. I don't think the games do a good job of directing you clearly to the next plot point like the best U.S. games do. But FFT was a lot of fun, with a more enjoyable game mechanic for me than standard FF fare."
$64.99   Used & New from: $9.30
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (216 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance
12.  Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance by Playstation 2
The list author says:
  "Action RPG that could be set in any generic fantasy setting. The game really became fun when you exploited the save feature by dropping items you wanted more of to increase your gold or up the power of your magic items. Cheating? Meh."
$64.15   Used & New from: $9.45
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (214 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Champions of Norrath - PlayStation 2
13.  Champions of Norrath - PlayStation 2 by Sony
The list author says:
  "By the same team that created Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance, and it's essentially that game in the world of Everquest. This was the more fun of the two in this series, namely because Sony nerfed the warriors in Champions Return to Arms by reducing the duration of their powers and making it harder to take advantage of the drop and duplicate exploit."
Used & New from: $19.95

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift
14.  Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift by Square Enix
The list author says:
  "Similar to FFA. OK story, but lots of fun on the gameplay side."
$37.34   Used & New from: $21.75
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (97 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2 - PlayStation 2
15.  Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2 - PlayStation 2 by Interplay
The list author says:
  "Very similar to Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance, but with slightly better graphics and the chance to play as Drizzt or Artemis Entreri. Like its predecessor, you could play coop, which gave these games an added playability other RPGs lacked."
$116.60   Used & New from: $22.00
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (116 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Pokemon HeartGold Version
16.  Pokemon HeartGold Version by Nintendo
The list author says:
  "Pretty much all Pokemon games are the same: same story, same gameplay, same monsters (with a few new ones each generation). Why did I pick this one? It's a big game, the graphics are pretty good, and there are Action Replay codes to speed up the annoying game mechanics I can't stand. Seriously, there's an AR code to run the game at double speed on your DS. How awesome is that?"
$97.50   Used & New from: $50.89
