Computer games are one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the world. Therefore, in the entire history of the existence of this entertainment, many new products have come out, many of which have become cult games. These games are played over and over again, no matter what year the game was released. Some of these projects have custom modifications that expand the possibilities of the game. Many games have different options for passing the main storyline, so the player can learn something new every time in a particular game world. Other interesting entertainment you can find on Avalon78.


The Elder Scrolls Series

The cult series of games The Elder Scrolls appeared more than 20 years ago – in 1994. Then came the first part called Arena. The action of all TES games takes place in the world of Mundus, or more precisely, on the planet Nirn. The planet itself, as conceived by the authors of the game, is divided into several continents, one of which unfolds the entire plot. Tamriel is famous for its diversity, as it includes different types of terrain. Speaking in more detail about the landscape, it is worth noting that in the subsequent parts of the series, players are offered to evaluate good graphics – there is a really excellent and believable game universe here.


The TES series of games has one distinctive feature: in each part, the main character begins his journey in the form of a prisoner, but by the end he becomes a real hero (provided that he performs various heroic deeds). Each player can independently choose for his character to choose a race, gender and some other parameters. Throughout the game, you see how your choice affects the course of events: for example, if you choose a certain race, then some characters will treat the player with respect, while others will show their displeasure.


One of the advantages of the game is that you can come up with any action for your character. You need to complete side quests before completing the main story, as well as use different types of weapons. There are also different types of spells available to players that can help them become a legendary hero in the world of The Elder Scrolls.


Warcraft series

Warcraft III is a real-time strategy game with RPG elements. The game was developed by Blizzard Entertainment with the support of Vivendi Universal and was released in July 2002 (Reign of Chaos) and June 30, 2003 (The Frozen Throne).


Warcraft III was one of the most anticipated games, with over 4.5 million pre-orders and over one million copies of the game sold in less than a month, making it the fastest-selling PC game of the period. Warcraft was met with many positive reviews, and some publications marked the game with the titles “Best Game of the Year” and “Best Strategy of the Year”, and the game also received high ratings from the players.


Unlike previous games in the series, the number of opposing sides has increased from two to four: you can play not only for the Alliance and the Horde, but also for two new races – Undead and Night Elves. However, the overall gameplay has not changed – the player still needs to extract resources, build bases and hire troops in order to destroy the enemy. In addition to new races, “Heroes” have become an innovation – unique warriors with special abilities and able to gain experience when killing enemy warriors.


The game comes bundled with the World Editor map editor, thanks to which many unofficial maps have appeared on the network, in which the gameplay can be completely different from the usual one. DotA became one of the most popular maps, and many other modifications were also developed, such as Tower Defense, Hero Survival, etc. A year later, the Frozen Throne add-on was released for the game, which also became popular with players and received many positive reviews and reviews .


Dota 2

Dota is no less popular than Warcraft. Initially, it was an amateur mode for the third part of Military Craft. But the well-known company Valve bought the rights to this mode from Blizzard. Now Dota 2 is in high demand among the players, and the prize pools of this game exceed the $1,000,000 mark.


The gameplay, at first glance, looks simple: players choose characters before the start of the match and develop heroes throughout the game. However, in reality, experienced opponents do not allow beginners to carelessly “swing” and move forward along the lines, destroying towers along the way. However, over time, the game becomes clearer, and your skill is steadily growing.


Diablo Series

This series is also rightfully called one of the best games ever. The creators of Diablo Blizzard did everything at the highest level – graphics, story, characters. The second part of this game even got into the Guinness Book of Records – it became the best-selling game of all time. All in all, Diablo is a classic RPG with hack’n’slash elements. The great popularity of the game served to the fact that a large number of clones began to appear on the network, who wanted to select part of the audience.


Starcraft Series

Another brainchild of Blizzard, but this time – space strategy. Many players consider Starcraft to be the best real-time strategy game. Everything you need is here – macro and micro control, various units, a large number of tactics, and so on. Specialists from Blizzard skillfully wove a cool storyline, on the basis of which a variety of theories were built and amateur stories and books were written. That is why the Starcraft series has the right to be in the TOP of the best games of all time.


The Witcher Series

The Witcher is another series of games that has become incredibly popular all over the world. The game is based on the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, who overcomes various obstacles on the way to his goal. What was the reason for such a great popularity of this game? The answer is simple: great atmosphere of the game world, high-quality detailing of objects inside the playing field, colorful characters and excellent gameplay. It is worth noting that the game was created on the basis of the work of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski. Fans of the book claim that the creators of the game were able to give fans of the book saga a truly memorable sequel to the White Wolf.


The developers have already stated that fans will soon be able to see the 4th part of this game. At the same time, they plan to focus on two worlds – Sapkowski and Cyberpunk.


Unlike other offline RPGs, The Witcher does not allow the player to create their own character. But there is a ready-made Geralt that can be modified. Here you can create your own sets of talents, use various two-handed swords, and also fight with the help of witcher magical signs. In addition, players can get good money for killing monsters roaming the game world. There are really a lot of opportunities, so even an avid player will find something interesting for themselves.


Neverwinter Nights

An example of a classic game and one of the best games of all time, in which the main character explores the world in search of the head of the cult. However, the plot begins with the fact that a plague is attacking the kingdom, which our character needs to defeat. The gameplay is made in the form of a classic real-time battle with an active pause. Perhaps this masterpiece will clearly seem familiar to you.


Dilogy Star Wars: KOTOR

This specimen deserves its place in the hall of fame. At KOTOR, you’ll find the very best in the world of RPGs. Full acting out of his role in the giant world of Star Wars, unexpected twists in the plot. As well as a large selection of different talents, colorful characters and much more.
