By Eric Soul | Updated 2 months ago | 5 Min Read

The best thing about RPG is that you can create your own game experience, it up to you whether you want to be a good guy or the bad. Every decision you take will affect your gameplay, making it unique and real.

Every title in the list offers the novel RPG element in their own ways. Explore different styles like action RPG, strategy, dark Fantasy, comedy, survival, horror, mystery, ancient, and team-based story. This list includes top isometric RPG titles that will take you to your fantasy world.

Being a survival gaming fan, I would like you to suggest two survival games with role-playing gamplay that are not included in this list: Don’t Starve and Minecraft survival mode.

Last Words

Okay, guys, this is the list of top isometric RPGs that I recommend playing. You can find tons of RPGs, but there are less isometric RPGs with a good story and role-playing. If you ask me, which game should I play first? then I will definitely suggest you for Divinity: Original Sin 1 & 2. That’s it, Folks.
