6 Of The Most Replayable RPGs Of All Time

Year in year out, you'll always find yourself coming back to these titles.

Story Highlights

  • Role-playing games are some of the biggest proponents of the gaming industry. 
  • Some RPGs, however, aren’t as replayable as one would like them to be, offering limited gameplay.
  • An array of other role-playing games, however, are exceptional in the replayability department. 

RPGs are some of the most popular types of games scattered all across the board in the gaming industry. Their accessibility, ease of playability, and value for money appeal to gamers around the world, but when it boils down to the best of the best, only a handful of titles end up coming up on top as compared to their counterparts.

This piece is centered on such RPGs that offer sublime replay value, especially to an extent where you literally want the game to end in some way so you have something to look forward to next. Whether said titles achieve this through diverse content, multiple endings, or post-game potential, that’s for you to explore. 

RPGs Aren’t Always Overly Replayable, But With These Picks, There’s No Doubting

In case you have a contribution to make to the list ahead, feel free to comment down below and spark a discussion. It bears noticing that the forthcoming entries have been derived from personal experience; you’re free to add more to them. 

1. Dragon Age: Origins

Dragon Age has had multiple iterations following the onset of Origins, but none of them have been able to handle business quite like this one. Coming across as the very first iteration in the well-acclaimed Dragon Age series of role-playing games, Origins is recognized for its immense replayability, made even better by its tantalizing combat and engaging storyline. 

It’s actually incredible how Dragon Age: Origins is packed with an unbelievable amount of content, where several different playthroughs still don’t cut it and keep you coming back for more. The following video by Strat-Edgy Productions is a great way for you to get up-to-speed with the RPG if you had managed to miss it earlier.

2. Baldur’s Gate 3

Moving ahead, we’ve got Larian Studios’ Baldur’s Gate 3, and I really don’t need to introduce this one, do I? The 2023 Game of the Year winner at TGA is a masterpiece through-and-through, and truly a title that comes along once in a decade, thanks to it being supremely replayable than most of its JRPG counterparts. No wonder it bagged the most Game of the Year awards on different occasions last year.

eXputer reviewed Baldur’s Gate 3 and rated it 5/5, calling it “one of the greatest RPGs of all time, and a testament to the talent of developer Larian Studios.” Beating the game once doesn’t do anything; you have to replay from the start, make different choices, choose different partners, opt for other dialogue options, and see where things go from there on out. 

3. Fallout: New Vegas

Widely considered the best Fallout game ever made, and one of the greatest first-person shooting RPGs as well, what Fallout: New Vegas brings to the table is rarely ever matched by its rivals in the genre. Let me tell you this: I’ve beat the mainline campaign more than 12 times in New Vegas, but I still find myself discovering a side quest here and there that I haven’t ever come across before. Baffling, isn’t it? 

Yeah, you should definitely give this one a go if you haven’t already.  

4. Chrono Trigger

Now, Chrono Trigger is an old one, but that still doesn’t take away from the fact that this Square Enix RPG is perhaps one of the most replayable games you can pick up, even in today’s day and age for how relevant it still comes across as. It’s endlessly charming, has an array of different endings, and can be played several different times for unique outcomes. 

Oh, and the special part about this game is: The playthroughs are relatively shorter, so beating it more than once or twice becomes automatically manageable. 

5. Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous

Another solid recommendation that I’d like to nudge you toward is Owlcat’s Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. It’s an RPG that will overwhelm you (not negatively) with its insane build variety for both you and the companions that tag along with you. On top of that, there are various different Mythic Paths in the title, each coming with its own unique journey. 

That said, I will state that Pathfinder isn’t for everyone. It’s long, has a learning curve, and is a bit complex at times. The RPG is still, however, extremely replayable, which is the crux of the article’s discussion, practically. 

6. Mass Effect Trilogy

You think of a Western RPG, you land on the iconic Mass Effect trilogy of third-person shooters first and foremost—no question about it. It’s considered by many the greatest trio of RPGs one has ever had the privilege to play, and there’s not a speck of doubt about that.

The space-themed finesse, followed by a story that’s better told than most movies, gameplay that stands out, and characters that hit the nail on the head with owning their respective roles. Mass Effect Legendary Edition on Steam is up for grabs, and it comprises all three mainline Mass Effect games for your entertaining pleasure.
