Best RPGs on PS5 – Push Square

What are the best RPGs on PS5? In this hopefully helpful guide, we’re going to list the best RPGs on PS5 — as rated by the Push Square community.

Over the years, the term ‘role-playing game’ has evolved to cover an incredibly wide range of experiences. From text-heavy, choice-driven RPGs like Disco Elysium and traditional, turn based adventures like Dragon Quest, to open world action titles such as Elden Ring, the genre is impressively vast.

What actually makes an RPG an RPG is often up for heated debate, but generally speaking, we believe that an RPG offers some degree of player choice, with systems and mechanics that promote character progression. Dialogue decisions, levelling up, quests, loot, specific combat design — all of these traits and more can make up the bulk of what an RPG is.

Again, this list is based on user ratings. If you’d like to have a say in which games end up on this list, then you can simply click on the user score that’s at the top of each game’s heading and select a score of your own. You can also use the following search bar to find and rate other games.

But remember: a game will need at least 25 ratings before it’s added to this article. If there are any obvious RPGs that we’re missing, chances are that they don’t have enough ratings yet — so be sure to find your favourites and rate them appropriately.
