    Travel to another world with our list of the best fantasy PC games

    There's nothing quite like going to another world, immersing yourself in its history and characters, getting familiar with a new virtual life. Fantasy games are especially good at offering this kind of experience, but the genre is so full of great adventures that it can be hard to pinpoint exactly where to put your attention. Lucky for you, we've put together this list of the best fantasy games for PC.



    So whether you're looking to slay some dragons in a vast open world or try something a little different, we've got you covered with our list of the best fantasy games for PC. All you need is a sense of adventure and patience for a great deal of knowledge. Come on!


    Here is our list of the best fantasy games for PC:

    • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
    • Outward
    • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
    • Dragon Age 2
    • Genshin impact
    • Pyre
    • Pillars of Eternity
    • Hollow Knight

    Next, let's talk a little about each of the games above:

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    With all the excitement for years behind us, it's easy to see that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has become one of the best PC games of all time. In its expansive fantasy world there is no shortage of deeply human interactions and tales of sadness, joy and everything in between. Ultimately, it's this intense focus on telling epic and decidedly mundane stories that gives him such a captivating spirit.



    As a fantasy game, it's arguably at the height of its powers during the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine DLC questlines. Here you'll find plenty of creative twists on old fantasy threads, with the latter even featuring a fully explorable 'Land of a Thousand Fables'.

    Once Geralt's adventure comes to an end and you've spent dozens of hours in good company, you'll no doubt leave The Witcher 3 with a lump in your throat and more than a story or two to tell.

    Outward

    Externally it hits the spot of embarking on a long, challenging and potentially fatal adventure. Sometimes it can feel like there are several steps along the way to accomplishing the simplest of tasks, from preparing your backpack to planning your route. But instead of boring you to tears, what it does is shift focus to the journey itself and give each decision you make a greater sense of importance.

    A hasty plan will always end in disaster, so you should think through everything and make sure that any trip beyond the city walls will be worth your time and effort. The smallest of victories therefore becomes a cause for celebration, and the slow realization that you've made a decent living for yourself in an incredibly difficult world is oddly comforting.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Skyrim has been picked, written about, and played more than any other game on this list, and for good reason. It's easily Bethesda's most accessible modern RPG, offering hundreds of hours of fantasy and adventure, and yet there's an undeniable charm just wandering around its world.

    Dragon Age 2

    Dragon Age 2 is grossly underrated (I really should point out that Dragon Age: Origins and Inquisition are better). The city of Kirkwall is filled with intriguing tales and memorable characters who struggle to live their lives amidst a growing rivalry that threatens to destroy everything in its wake.

    Despite these life-and-death stakes, the game's main conflicts maintain a certain intimacy and immediacy. The enemy, whoever you feel like it is, is already on the city walls before you've even prepared to party, and there's an unsettling sense that your hard-fought victories are only delaying the inevitable.


    Sure, the recycled maps and other signs of a major turnaround in development are still present ten years later, but – as was true at launch – the good far outweighs the bad.

    Genshin impact

    For many, Genshin Impact was a wild introduction to the world of fantasy gaming. It's a great place to start, honestly, and few free PC games can claim to offer a wealth of fun quests, likable characters, as well as amazing visuals.

    The writing can be a bit random, but even if Paimon annoys you, there will always be something to keep you playing, whether it's the promise of cool new loot, a new character, or another beautiful area to explore.

    Pyre

    What a strange, resonant, unforgettable game Pyre is. The Supergiant story of imprisoned exiles trying to return home by succeeding in sporting 'rituals' is as sad as it is uplifting. On your journey through the downside, you befriend the unlikeliest of heroes, and the adversities shared by you, your group, and even your rivals have the effect of bringing everyone together and complicating every emotion felt.

    Pyre's world-building and branching narrative may be one of its main hooks, but the rituals themselves are still a joy to play and their surprising complexity becomes apparent as you progress or increase the difficulty. Basically, the game doesn't miss the point.

    Pillars of Eternity

    Pillars of Eternity is a smart CRPG set in a dark fantasy land where your choices really matter. Despite its obvious old-school appeal, it still carries its own personality and sense of history. Plus, he knows exactly what to draw from his inspirations and what to update.

    Obsidian's approach should work well for novice players and those who have spent an absurd amount of time in the world of Neverwinter Nights, Baldur's Gate, or Planescape: Torment. Its maritime successor, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, is equally worthy of your attention.

    Hollow Knight

    Hollow Knight is one of the most generous fantasy games you could ever hope to find on PC. It is a 2D action platformer set in a strange land of giant insects and subterranean civilizations. Your objective is to gradually navigate and map your treacherous surroundings while defeating a series of tricky bosses.

    Its open-ended nature and countless well-hidden secrets make exploration a delight, and just when you think the game is winding down or winding down, it presents a new idea or challenge to reinvigorate your action in a big way. There's a lot to see here and it's all worth it.
