PSU’s Game Of The Year 2021 – Best Role-Playing Game

Best Role-Playing Game 2021: Tales of Arise

Ah, RPGs. The perfect genre for those who love sinking dozens, sometimes hundreds of hours into. If you’re going to spend that much time on a game, then it had better be worth your time; fortunately, 2021 had some right corkers in this respect, and we’ve trimmed it down to bring you the best of the bunch.

While there’s quite a few RPGs worth your hard-earned dough this year, one title had an overwhelming number of votes from our PSU staff – Bandai Namco Games’ Tales of Arise! Yep, the latest entry in the much-loved series won by quite a substantial margin, although it’s easy to see why.
