Best RPG Video Games for Newbies and
In this episode:
got asked on Twitter where the best place to begin with RPGs would
be. Between Western RPGs like Skyrim and the jRPG genre like Final
Fantasy, we thought this would make a great topic for a
- Starting RPGs can be intimidating
because they're typically dozens of hours long, with lots of
mechanics and intricate battle and progression systems.
- We wanted to break it down so that
you knew there are easily accessible options out there if you want
to give the genre a try. Like Final Fantasy X and Dragon Quest
XIII. We even talk about how Pokemon (specifically Let's Go! Eevee
is a great starting point for everyone).
- We don't really cover action RPGs in
this (Kingdom Hearts, Zelda, etc.) because we feel as though they
deserve an episode all on their own. However, Kingdom Hearts is a
great place to start, as is Breath of the Wild.
- If you've never tried an RPG before
and want to just get into the genre without worrying about a lot of
baggage, give Skyrim a shot. It's on almost every platform, is
totally affordable, and really brought (Western) RPGs to the
masses. You will probably drop hundreds of hours in like most of us
- And if you have any questions, feel
free to ask on Twitter, Discord, or Slack.
