Guerrilla Games’ sci-fi action RPG Horizon Zero Dawn was one of the first to transition from a PlayStation exclusive flagship to a PC.

While the launch version of the title had massive performance issues, including occasional crashes and stuttering due to background shader compilation, the majority of those technical issues have been ironed out, making it one of the best RPG experiences on PC.

Players take on the role of Aloy, a once outcast from her tribe, now a fierce warrior who embarks on a journey across the world to fulfill her destiny as the savior of mankind and also to uncover the mysteries of her past. While Horizon Zero Dawn’s story is quite compelling, it’s certainly not the highlight of the experience.

The best part of the game is its gameplay, which revolves around hunting down gigantic mechanical creatures that roam the earth’s surface. Armed with combat tools, including various types of bows and many traps to craft, players are tasked with taking on the mechanical creatures.

Another title from CD Projekt Red, Cyberpunk 2077, is discounted during the ongoing Steam RPG sale. Cyberpunk 2077 has quickly become the most hyped game of the past decade; Unfortunately, the game’s launch was riddled with problems that ultimately led to the game becoming one of the biggest launch disasters of the eighth generation of consoles.

Warhorse Studios Kingdom Come: Deliverance is set in ancient Rome. Players take on the role of ordinary townsfolk and plunge headlong into a raging civil war that leads to the death of the protagonist’s parents.

Disco Elysium is by far one of the best indie RPGs to be released in the last decade. The title is heavily inspired by Infinity Engine era games like Planetscape Torment, with a dark and gloomy yet beautiful world, a variety of intriguing characters, and a story that branches into seemingly endless possibilities of choices and consequences.

Players take on the role of an amnesiac detective tasked with solving a grizzly murder mystery while trying to piece together his past. Disco Elysium’s story, world and many characters that players will encounter throughout the game are like an onion with multiple layers.

Although the game’s narrative begins as a sad tale of a rather pathetic and tragic protagonist, it slowly evolves into an emotional and heartbreaking tale of camaraderie, betrayal, and sacrifice. Disco Elysium’s intriguing story is supported by an amazing soundtrack that acts as a catalyst to increase the game’s immersion factor.
