10 Best Turn Based RPGs to Play in 2015

A beautiful strategist.

Stopping the forces of Evil, one turn at a time.

Turn based RPGs are for those of you who want to enjoy a good story, but with strategy. You want more than just smash the left click until the enemies are dead – you want to see your carefully laid out plans in action. We have compiled a list of games for you that offer the greatest combination of both worlds. 

10. Shadowrun: Dragonfall

Demons and automatic weapons.

Shadowrun: Dragonfall was an expansion for Shadowrun Returns, but now it’s a standalone game. It starts with you, a shadowrunner, investigating the death of a friend. By the end, you will be solving huge conspiracies, involving corporations and dragons. 

Top-down Shadowrunning.

Unlike in Shadowrun Returns, you have a fixed party of four instead of hired mercenaries, and a much more focused story. The combat and the interface are also improved. If you are looking for a Shadowrun game, this is the best out there. Even if you are unfamiliar with the universe, Dragonfall is a great starting point.

My rating: 4/5.

Director's Cut is bigger and better in every aspect.
