The D20 Beat: 2018’s RPGs — my critical hits and made saving throws

When I think about 2018’s role-playing games, I don’t see lots of bombast and flash. Blockbuster studios often stayed away. Square Enix’s main offerings this year weren’t triple-A releases. You didn’t see anything from BioWare, and Bethesda’s Fallout 76 sure doesn’t feel like an RPG to me.

The critical hits

These are my favorite RPGs of 2018. They tell fantastic stories, pose interesting combat situations, and have engaging character development (either through story or through stats).

  • Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
  • Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
  • The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep
  • Book of Demons
  • Battletech
  • Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu

Making their saves

These are solid RPGs, but they don’t qualify as critical hits. They are worthy of playing.

  • Octopath Traveler
  • Tower of Time
  • Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition (Switch)
  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker
  • Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
