10 Of The Best Tabletop RPG Video Game Adaptations

Over the years, some tabletop RPGs translated their exciting mechanics into the video game world. Here are some of their best adaptations.

The evolution of the RPG genre throughout the years, from Dungeons and Dragons predecessor Chainmail to modern games like The Elder Scrolls franchise, has been impressive to say the least. Games that started off as little more than chess pieces and dice have become immense worlds filled with stories and characters unimaginable to the early pioneers of the genre.

Either due to recent social restrictions, or just a lack of players, the transition from pen-to-paper to digital code has become a necessity for a lot of us, whether that means finding ways to emulate the tabletop experience through the web, or finding new ways to satisfy the gaming urge. That being said, here are a handful of our favorite video games that have either directly adapted, or otherwise translated tabletop systems to a digital experience. Roll for initiative!

  • Planescape: Torment
  • Call Of Cthulhu
  • Shadowrun
  • Knights Of The Old Republic
  • Fallout Classic
  • Icewind Dale
  • Pillars Of Eternity
  • Disco Elysium
  • Baldur's Gate
  • Neverwinter Nights
