Every game’s an RPG these
days. Titles as diverse as
tactical shooters, fighting
games, and CCGs are unified
by touchstones like levelling
and loot. Yet, it’s rare that we’re
actually invited to play a role.

Despite its dry interface,
Crusader Kings II is one of the
best role-playing experiences
in gaming, inviting you to fully
embody a medieval ruler. Its
sequel is doubling down,
investing its simulation with even more
avenues to discover and express not just your
character’s personality, but their entire dynasty.
