Games Like Fable Series

Games like Fable are non-linear adventures that don’t force you down a specific path, but instead give you options to make choices that you like. The Fable games were excellent in doing this, and after releasing a collectible card game, there is a possibility that the classic RPG series may come back under a new studio. Whether this will happen or not, in the meantime there are tons of fantastic RPGs that do a great job at immersing you in their interesting worlds, and we’ve got a list of these captivating journeys that you can check out right down below.

The Witcher Series

Whichever Witcher game you jump into first, you’re in for an amazing experience full of choices and great storytelling. While you can simply jump into The Witcher 3 and enjoy an immersive and beautiful world which also includes some of the best expansion packs you will ever play, playing through the whole trilogy is even better as you make choices that affect all the games and learn more about the lore and our famous monster hunter, Geralt.
