Some popular role-playing games include "Deus Ex: Human Revolution," "Fallout 4" and "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt." Other popular RPGs include "Final Fantasy VII," "Chrono Trigger" and "Pokémon Red."

Many of the most popular RPGs are action RPGs, which combine fast-paced combat with RPG elements, such as skill selection and leveling up. These include "Deux Ex: Human Revolution," set in the future and with a heavy emphasis on stealth and hacking, and "Fallout 4," set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland with a focus on exploration and character interactions. These games heavily feature guns, unlike "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt," another popular RPG set in a fantasy world of swords and magic.

Other popular RPGs are more traditional, with turn-based, automatic combat and in-depth menu screens. Some examples include "Final Fantasy VII," which features an epic story and customizable characters, and "Chrono Trigger," a time travel RPG in which events are constantly changing due to player interference in other time periods. Some of the most popular RPGs are the Pokémon games, which began with "Pokémon Red" and "Pokémon Blue." These games feature many different types of the title creatures, which the player can then catch, train and use in battle to complete the game.
