PC Gamer Lists 15 Overlooked RPGs Worth Playing Today
PC Gamer have published a list of 15 overlooked RPGs that are worth playing today. While no Ultima title graces the list — what Ultima could be considered to have been overlooked, anyway? — Arx Fatalis merits a mention. This game, you’ll recall, would have been the third entry in the Ultima Underworld series, had EA granted the license to Arkane.
Also mentioned is Risen, Piranha Bytes’ spiritual successor to the Gothic series. It’s a game that owes much to both Ultima 8 and Ultima 9; its German developers are huge Ultima fans, and took many inspirational cues from both games.
