TOP 100 TACTICAL RPG GAMES

Tactical RPGs are like playing a game of chess with dwarves, elves, and fairies instead of boring old pieces. Players love this genre because not only do they get to immerse themselves in fantastical worlds, they also get to command their own army of quirky characters and battle ridiculous monsters. It's like being a boss without all the tedious paperwork. Plus, who doesn't love seeing a goblin get whacked with a sword? On this site, you'll find a list of the top tactical RPGs of all time, handpicked by experts who have spent countless hours trying not to get squished by giants. So go ahead, indulge in some fantasy warfare. Your inner strategist will thank you. And maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about leading a team. Just don't get too attached to your characters, because let's face it, they're probably going to die.
