My Top 50 RPGs

As someone who has played a lot of RPGs, I feel that I’m able to stick them together in a big pot, draw them out one by one, and build them into a list that is ordered from my most to least favourite RPGs ever. I had approximately 70 listed, and I’m sure that I missed another dozen or so, because after playing so many after approximately twenty years, it becomes a little difficult to keep track of them all!

Anyway, here it is, my top 50 RPGs. This article really serves no purpose at all, I just felt like writing something on a Wednesday for once.
