GTA Role Playing (RP) has become very popular among gamers, especially in recent years.
It was an amazing transformation, as GTA RP was basically created by the members of the community themselves who, using mods, created a Grand Theft Auto Online server that acted as an RPG game in its own right.
However, because this genre is community driven, many of these GTA RP servers are still missing a lot of features. In addition, role playing in general can get old quickly if players have been doing it for a long time.
So to rejuvenate the creativity of players, here are five RPGs they should definitely try.

5 RPGs That Are Great To Play When GTA Players Are Tired Of Role Playing
1) Fallout New Vegas
Fallout New Vegas has been hailed multiple times as one of the best single player RPGs ever made. This installment of the series was developed by Obsidian Entertainment, an acclaimed studio known for creating many games in the genre.
Fallout NV has a lot of elements that GTA fans can expect from a hardcore RPG game, but it’s also mixed in with enough mainstream qualities to make it a great jumping-off point for anyone looking to explore this genre further.
One of the highlights is the side missions that players can find in the Mojave Desert, the setting for this game. They can find many different characters with complex backstories and quests that are perfectly made for role-playing.
2) Deux Ex: Human Revolution
Deux Ex Human Revolution is the third installment in the beloved series. This game was released in 2011 and has gained quite a devoted cult following ever since.
The main selling points are the cyberpunk world the game takes place in, the freedom of choice players have, and how much of the story can be manipulated through their actions.
So, if fans like storytelling games with a big emphasis on player choice, then Deus Ex Human Revelation is perfect for them.
Furthermore, a large part of this game is devoted to body augmentation. So players who want to create very specific characters will love to play this title.
3) The outer worlds
This game is another RPG made by Obsidian Entertainment, but unlike Fallout New Vegas, it is their own original IP. It is a great science fiction offering with a very extensive character customization feature that players can freely use to create the avatar they want to play.
Furthermore, most of the supporting cast is very well written, just like GTA 5, and their respective side missions are well integrated with the gameplay. While the game is quite short compared to other titles on the list, it’s still worth playing.
4) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Although the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a game that came out in 2010, it still has as much influence on game culture as it did when it was first released.
This is thanks to the great modding community that is constantly turning this game into something more interesting and creative. Mods range from new cosmetics players can apply to their characters to all-new quests similar to the vanilla side quests.
So fans will never run out of content when they play this game. Plus, the world-building in this title is so incredible that they get immersed in lore pretty quickly.
5) Person 5
To pick up the pace, Persona 5 is a great starting point if players are looking for something different when it comes to RPGs. This is because it takes a lot more cues from Japanese titles than western ones.
Therefore, players will find many anime-inspired tropes and story beats that are sure to give them a different perspective that they may not have experienced before.
In addition, Persona 5 is a great game overall, with an entertaining and thought-provoking storyline powered by well-written and multi-dimensional supporting characters.
Players should also keep in mind that Persona 5 mainly focuses on turn-based combat, as opposed to GTA RP, so the RPG elements are used more strategically in the gameplay.
