The best 50 free RPG PC games of all time

The Free Games Utopia top 50 lists the best free-to-play, free full version and liberated video games of all time according to users ratings. The games on this list belong to the whole history of video games; you can find games for DOS, Sega Genesis, Commodore 64 all the way up to more recent systems like Android, iOS, Linux and, of course, Windows.

The concept of "free" game is not very well-defined. All the games on Free Games Utopia do not require any kind of payment to start playing right away, but may OPTIONALLY require payments in the form of subscriptions, upgrades or microtransactions (MMOs, for example).

This top 50 includes games published for many platforms:

  • every PC platform since the dawn of desktop computers: from popular systems (Microsoft Windows, Macintosh, Linux) to lesser known ones (Solaris, FreeBSD, BeOS)
  • old microcomputers: Commodore 64, Spectrum, etc.
  • mobile platform: mainly Android and iOS
  • a few popular consoles (and even old ones): Xbox, Nintendo, PlayStation

To be part of the top 50, a single game must have been voted at least three times. Use the button bar to filter the list by genre.

RPG - An RPG (acronym for Role Playing Game) is a video game where the player can control one or more characters (a "party") in a fictional world, usually in a fantasy or science fiction environment. Typical features of RPGs are: a main story and, often, side quests, character development, turn-based or real-time combat. Many terms used in RPG games, such as "armor class", "alignment", "saving throws" come from pen-and-paper games (i.e. Dungeons & Dragons). More RPG games on Free Games Utopia.
