3. Like A Dragon 8

The Yakuza series as a whole is one that has maintained its legendary status throughout the years. With Like A Dragon 8, however, the series hopes to somewhat reinvent and revitalize itself. The game appears to have series protagonist Kazama Kiryu as a part of the game. An interesting change is that the game will be dropping Yakuza from the title. However, the game's core cast of characters is from that franchise. As far as gameplay goes, this title appears to be a turn-based RPG in which players will use a plethora of weapons.

The same commitment to storytelling and character development appears to still be intact with this title. This is wonderful to see, as the Yakuza series is one that has long been highly praised, especially for its marks in this regardIt should be noted, however, that if past entries in the series are anything to go by, we certainly are in for one wild ride.

For fans of RPGs, or more specifically ARPGs, Path of Exile has been a shining beacon of quality and consistency. It would appear that the team behind the game will want to take it into the future with a sequel. While there is currently little information surrounding this sequel, it is already of the most anticipated RPGs around. This isn't without reason, either, as the quality held within the first Path of Exile is simply stellar. In addition, the storylines within this game appear to take on an amazing sense of scope and scale.

There will allegedly be seven acts within the main storyline. However, this is far from the only content that this game will offer players. There will be a total of nineteen new classes to choose from, which is great for player agency and gameplay variety.

Well, we cannot wait to see what this title shapes up to be. So if you like us, consider this one of the most sought-after RPGs of 2024. You should definitely be on the lookout.

1. Final Fantasy XVI

What can be said about the Final Fantasy series that hasn't already been said? Since the polarizing release of Final Fantasy XV, many fans have been clamoring for more from the series. While many fans criticized various aspects of that game, it would appear that Final Fantasy XVI is a different beast altogether. The game itself features combat animations that are simply top-of-the-industry type content and are sure to wow any naysayers. The scale of the game has also increased, and given the additional power of today's consoles, this title will only grow.

The game follows a new hero, Clive, as they make their way through the world. The world itself also appears to play a more significant role than in the previous game as well. The game's side characters appear to have received quite a bit more love as well. This is great to see, as many players thought that in the previous game, too little time was spent on the game's side characters and content. All in all, Final Fantasy XVI is undoubtedly one of the titles, specifically within RPGs, to be looking forward to in 2024.
