Best Role Playing Games for Mac

RPGs (role-playing games) are basically escapism with experience points, the bread and butter of anyone who prefers their social interactions scripted and their conflicts resolved with a broadsword swing or a fireball. They’re your golden ticket to slapping on the boots of a make-believe protagonist and wrestling with their convoluted backstories and moral dilemmas. Also, every now and then, you may be tasked with bailing out a world teetering on the brink of apocalypse. 

RPGs invite you to dive into realms of fantasy and far-flung future dystopias where you get to unravel deep-seated lore and rub elbows with fantastical but believable characters. The selection of role-playing games for Mac we’ve lined up promises to haul you into their worldk, whether you’re itching for mystical landscapes or far-away galaxies. So, arm yourself with a mouse or trackpad, and dive into our top picks—if you’re ready for a substantial dose of unreal adventure, that is.
