Top Rpg Games of 2014

With house prices soaring to unattainable levels and the cost of living increasing 2014 hasn't been a great year to be living in the real world. Thankfully there's role playing video games to get lost in, and forget about all the stresses of life for a few hours.

On the whole it's been a pretty stellar year for the role-playing game. Dark Souls 2 hit early in the year and everyone with masochistic tendencies got really rather excited. South Park The Stick of Truth also finally made it to stores under new publisher Ubisoft, and despite lengthy delays was an excellent mix of South Park humour and RPG gameplay.

The Kickstarter funded wagon continued to roll on with Divinity: Original Sin and Wasteland 2 both launching on the back of successful crowd-funding campaigns, plus smaller hits such as Child of Light and Transistor helped fill in any gaps.

The year's ending with the launch of Dragon Age: Inquisition, which should make up for the delayed launch of The Witcher 3 which was pushed into 2015.
