Welcome to RPGFan’s Games of the Year 2023!
And man, has it been a doozy. Is it the best year for RPGs…ever? Maybe. Time will tell. What we can say for sure is that this year has been absolutely stacked with fantastic games. Whether you’re a fan of more traditional turn-based goodness, more interested in action and spectacle, or if you just love an RPG that lets you choose your fate, there’s something excellent for everyone this year, and we’re excited to share our picks for the best in each category!
As in years past, along with presenting our own selection, we present yours as Readers’ Choice! In many cases, your voting was awfully similar to ours, but there are some interesting divergences as well.
Additionally, we have episodes of Retro Encounter and Rhythm Encounter (coming soon!) detailing our favorites of the year.
And if you want to see us gush about even more awesome 2023 RPGs, be sure to check out our individual Editors’ Awards, too!
