    [​IMG]Unleash the Gamer shares their list of the best 16 science fiction RPGs.



    Before getting down to listing our favorite sci-fi RPGs , we'll explain the criteria that we considered when deciding whether or not a game fits into the Sci-Fi RPG category.

    What an RPG Is (in our opinion)

    For the purposes of the article, we consider an RPG a game that has:
    • Story
    • Character building and progression
    • Choices that affect the game world
    • An emphasis on exploration
    • Combat that is directly influenced by player stat choice
    What We Consider to Be Sci-Fi

    As for deciding if a game can be included in the Sci-Fi genre, we took into consideration the following factors:
    • Set in a near or distant future
    • Setting and universe based on imagined future scientific or technological advances
    • Science and technology are at the center or the basis of the plot, having either benefited or harmed the societies portrayed
    • Portrays aliens or life on other planets.
