7 Great Western RPG Games You Might Not Have Played

In today's modern era of gaming, the RPG genre has become a favorite genre developed by developers. At least elements of the genre are implemented to give the impression of progression and replayability.
RPGs are getting more complex and varied every day, games are no longer based on fantasy tropes and have turn-based gameplay on isometric cameras anymore. More and more RPG games are bringing innovations that make this genre even more fun to explore.

On this occasion, we would like to give a recommendation for a good, unique, and interesting western studio RPG that you may not have had time to or have heard of for the first time, aka underrated . So without further ado, here are the recommended games in the G-List this time.

7 Great Western RPG Games You Might Not Have Played

1. Outward

Outward on Steam

Outward is an RPG game with a strict survival element, making this game more difficult to play than typical RPG games in general because not only do you need to pay attention to HP, but also eat, drink and others.
The game also doesn't support a kind of minimap with markers, so you have to understand yourself how to read the map to browse or go to certain objectives. Even so, this game is a breath of fresh air because it gives players an RPG experience as a fragile human, not some kind of super person who somehow doesn't need daily necessities at all.

2. Disco Elysium

Disco Elysium

Disco Elysium is an RPG game that is so unique because it is separated from many RPG elements that you often find on the market. In this game you play as a detective with mental problems who must solve a mystery not through combat and violence, but mostly through discussion and dialogue.
The stats in this game are also unusual such as strength, intelligence, and dexterity, but psychological stats such as empathy, suggestion, intellect, etc. This makes the game very minimal combat or even none at all if you want. For some, this may make the game look boring, but through the story and dialogue that continues to attract attention, Disco Elysium deserves to be the game that won the most awards at The Game Awards 2019.

3. Grim Dawn

Grim Dawn on Steam

If you have been waiting for a new Diablo series for a long time and are not really interested in trying Diablo Immortal because of a mobile game, Grim Dawn is a very suitable alternative.

Grim Dawn delivers everything you'd expect from Diablo and gives it its own unique touch whether it's through the universe to playable classes. The game may not look so beautiful and also in terms of the story is not so strong, but it is still an alternative for those of you who appreciate isometric combat and looting.

4. Pyre

Pyre for PC | Origin

Pyre might be a little difficult to call an RPG, but with so many progression elements that can change the course of the game, I decided to add it here. The main pyre is a sports game like basketball but your friend "dies" one round each time he puts the ball in the "goal".
Apart from the main gameplay, you will also often interact with your team which has their own uniqueness such as Rukey whose body is small and agile, or Jodariel who is physically large and strong but slow.

The story is certainly the strongest aspect of this game like Supergiant Games games in general. Maybe this game is their weakest game at the moment, but that doesn't mean it can't be recommended at all.

5. Greedfall

GreedFall has just revealed the details on its story expansion | Rock Paper Shotgun

Greedfall is a fantasy game that is not so based on magic and also carries an unusual 17th century colonialism setting as the setting for an RPG game. Therefore, instead of playing fantasy magic made of fire and lightning, you use real world magic – pistols and hunting rifles. Magic is still there in the end, but more towards the Paladin role when compared to other games than a total mage.

In terms of gameplay, there are indeed many shortcomings, starting from the limited open-world and combat that takes time to adapt, as well as other technical problems. This is to be expected since it's not an AAA game production like Bioware, but ironically it's a lot more “Bioware” than the studio's production in recent years.

6. Kingdom Come Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Steam

Compared to all the games on this list, Kingdom Come Deliverance may be the most “realistic” because it completely frees itself from any magic and fantasy. In this game you will play as a sword warrior and also just a peasant who wants to take revenge against the kingdom that killed his family.

This game becomes an RPG game where you have to make a full investment in combat and all the mechanics because everything is presented in a realistic and rigid way for beginners. You also have to pay attention to eating and sleeping schedules during your adventure, but once you tolerate all these mechanics, Kingdom Come Deliverance gives the feel of a medieval RPG that is so rare and difficult for AAA studios to realize.

7. Wasteland 3

Wasteland 3 deserves to be the “true Fallout 3” for me. Not that Bethesda's Fallout 3 is bad, but this game from Inxile Entertainment has a much closer theme, feel, gameplay, and tradition to Fallout 1 and 2.

In this game, you will build a group of rangers who will take care of various issues ranging from political to social. Carrying the classic Fallout-style turn-based combat, Wasteland 3 is fun to play because of the deep RPG elements, interesting characters, and a storyline that continues to adapt to the decisions you make.
