PlayStation has a rich history of releasing some of the best role-playing games, and the PS4 is no exception. This list ranks the best PS4 RPGs released on the console so far, including a wide array of RPGs that vary in sub-genre. Once upon a time, RPGs had a pretty cut and dry formula of turn-based combat, but the role-playing genre has become a bit blurred since then. Games like Dark Souls III are more about real time combat, whereas best-sellers like The Witcher 3 are about exploration and adventure. That being said, there are still plenty of Playstion 4 JRPGs worth playing, as well as traditional role-playing games like Final Fantasy.

Naming the best Playstation 4 RPGs in an objective way is almost impossible, but that's where your votes come in. Vote up your favorite PS4 RPGs released on the console so far, and downvote any you wouldn't really recommend to other gamers. The PS4 role-playing games on this list aren't necessarily console exclusive, so you may see ports like South Park: The Stick of Truth or Bastion that were previously released PS3.
