The Best Mobile RPGs Ever (2022)
My love for mobile gaming runs pretty deep. Perhaps it's growing up in the '90s and early '00s, the fascination with portable tech like Nintendo DS and PSP, that sparked my initial love of mobile gaming. After all, the tech boom experienced by kids in the '90s and '00s changed how we game forever, and I was lucky enough to experience the simpler days of Super Mario Brothers and AIM.
However, even more than I love mobile gaming, I love RPGs. A good story. Solid, complex characters. Worlds that are made for exploration and adventure. RPGs are the comfort food of gaming, or they are for me at least. So, when these two worlds merge, mobile games and RPGs, it's a perfect combination.
In this shortlist, I introduce a few of the best mobile RPGs ever, or at least by my standards. When you're done checking out some of these mobile RPGs, check out some of the weirdest games on mobile and try out some of these RPGs and weird mobile games for yourself!
Note: most of the mobile games below are free-to-play, and I did this purposefully with the hopes that all gamers could have equal access to the RPGs in this list. While there are a lot of great RPGs that cost money, they won't be included in this list.
