Best RPG of 2017 – Nominees

PlayStation LifeStyle is doing our year-end awards slightly different from previous years. We wanted to put more importance on the act of getting nominated for an award, so we limited each category to five games. That’s not many, especially in a year stacked with great games like 2017 was, so it took a lot of careful deliberation to simply come up with each list.

Gathering the nominees for Best RPG 2017 ended up being a rather raucous affair, with a lot of games being thrown around by the staff. After what seemed like forever, we were able to narrow it down to a list of five great games. It’s also worth noting that several games with light role-playing game elements were grouped into the Action category, rather than here.

Without delaying it anymore, here are PlayStation LifeStyle’s nominees for Best RPG of 2017:

The winner of our Best RPG of 2017 award will be announced next week on Thursday, December 28. It will be a part of a week-long celebration of the best PlayStation 4 and Vita titles of 2017. Ultimately, it’ll conclude on Friday, December 29, where we’ll reveal PlayStation LifeStyle’s Game of the Year 2017. This year will go down as one of the greatest years of gaming ever, so we’re very excited to unveil all of our picks!

Of course, we’d also love to hear what you think. Let us know in the comments below what you believe is the best RPG 2017 release, and which nominee you’ll think will win the award! Will Persona 5 manage to top the list with style? Or did one of the other titles do enough to win? You’ll find out next week!
