Poll: Best PC RPGs of the 1990s

Poll: Best PC RPGs of the 1990s

Welcome to the days of yore! Back here in the 1990s we’re all having a colourful multicultural revolution, hip-hoppers and grungers alike, looking ahead to the true rise of the Internet at the end of the decade. Some of you  may have very fond memories of the early days of PC RPGs, while some of you may not even have been born. Either way, as PC gamers our rich legacy of dice-rolling and orc-slaying established in crude CGA and 16-colour VGA graphics in the 1980s positively exploded in the 1990s.

One of the reasons we’re running these polls is to help you discover – and re-discover — some of the gaming jewels of our past. And thanks to sites like GOG.com it’s easier than ever to experience and re-experience these classics. It’s never too late! Then again, maybe you know all of these titles, in which case choosing your favourite RPGs of the 1990s is going to be a tough task!

A few months back, we ran a poll of the Best RPGs of the 1980s, and got a ton great feedback from the PC gaming community. We added a few games retroactively though, which did ruffle some feathers. So this time we’ve learned from our mistakes and have been running a pre-poll for the last 4 weeks, to determine the ultimate list you’ll all be choosing from. Additionally, due to the sheer amount of CRPGs from the 1990s, we’ve increased the number of games you can vote for to 10!

So, without further ado, here are the nominees for XP4T’s Best RPGs of the 1990s:

    (I wanted vote also for Amberstar, Ambermoon, Stonekeep, Dungeon Master 2, Black Crypt, Betrayal at Krondor, some Realms of Arkania or Eye of the Beholder, but there is no place in TOP10:-(

    Diablo… are you people high?

    • Yeah, the kiddies complained and complained about it. So we opened the poll up to ARPG’s including Diablo.
