10 Best D&D Video Games, Ranked

These are great days for D&D fans. A brand-new movie, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, bodes well for a fantasy that follows the footsteps of the Guardians of the Galaxy, the role-playing game itself is healthier than ever with new material and historical returns, and it is even joining Magic: The Gathering as an expansion set multiple times.

So, what better time than this to show you the best D&D video games you can play? This list is made of diverse titles, but only an authentic D&D experience, truth to its roots, and great storytelling can touch the right strings to hit the highest ranks.


Lords of Waterdeep was born as a tabletop game in 2013, and it became very popular for being a well-refined and engaging worker placing fantasy-themed title. The digital porting does not disappoint expectations and offers a game that can both let you enjoy your time with your loved ones but, at the same time, ruin hopelessly your friendships, as every self-respecting competitive board game does.

Jokes aside, what retains this game only to the bottom of this list is the lack of a real D&D atmosphere, the thrill of epic adventures, and iconic situations. It is just a very good strategy game with a D&D label on it.

9 The Temple Of Elemental Evil

Another diamond in the rough crafted by the dearly departed Troika Games. The Temple of the Elemental Evil brings to the table the 3.5 edition ruleset and it takes place in the Realm of Greyhawk, the one that can be considered D&D’s primordial setting.

The game itself, while being provided with a great turn-based combat system, is held back by an essential storyline, a simple plot, and frustrating bugs. But the love of fans has done justice to the spirit of the game and taken it to the next level with community-made fixes and additional content.

8 Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance

In a franchise dominated by isometric story-driven experiences, Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance brought the charming world of Dungeons & Dragons to a different level of action and fun, offering a great alternative to the classic cRPG games. From the tactical slow-paced and thoughtful combat system and story-driven and dialogue-led paradigm to a fresh console action RPG.

Everything was delivered, at the time, in a new, brilliant, 3D engine. The game mechanics are really simple and the story is pretty short, but the game manages to not bore and offer a good replay value with a two-player cooperative mode that is great fun even today.

7 Baldur’s Gate III

The latest iteration of this legendary franchise brings you once again to the Forgotten Realms to fight epic evil and shape your story with your own choices. Larian Studios after delivering the astounding Divinity: Original Sin 2, picked up one of the heaviest legacies in the entire video game industry to prove to be chosen one.

Although not being totally truthful to the ruleset of the current D&D edition and the spirit of the original series, it still manages to offer a stunning experience gameplay-wise, matched by immersive graphics and great acting. However, the story, which is still incomplete, prevented Baldur's Gate III from hitting a higher rank.

6 Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition

One of the most fascinating D&D settings, lovely portrayed in the classic isometric fashion, boasting the legendary AD&D 2nd edition ruleset, delivers a great journey in the iconic Icewind Dale, the most famous background of Drizzt Do'Urden’s adventures narrated in the R.A. Salvatore novels.

The game, heavily focused on combat instead of the story, offers a tough challenge even for the most experienced RPG player but the lack of puzzles and a more linear RPG experience than in the past holds this title out of the top 5.

5 Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles Of Mystara

This package includes two of the most unforgettable side-scrolling beat ‘em up experiences ever made. Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara still manage to shine even if they were made more than 20 years ago.

The gameplay is addicting and made of melee, ranged, and magical attacks that convey the epic nature of the D&D fights based upon iconic character archetypes. The Challenge System and The Vault give a sense of reward and progression that extends the longevity of this great arcade experience.

4 Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition

Baldur’s Gate, which was originally released in 1998, is a cornerstone of the video game industry, the starting point that led to tabletop role-playing for many of you, and the spark of a never-ending love story with the RPG genre itself.

This game is, in fact, a great showpiece and launched BioWare in the elite of game developers and paved the way for other great D&D-based franchises. An epic adventure with iconic companions, in the immersive atmosphere of the Forgotten Realms, awaits you. Don’t forget that you must gather your party before venturing forth.

3 Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition

Based on the 3rd edition ruleset and set in the legendary Forgotten Realms, Neverwinter Nights is one of the most beloved RPGs of all time and an incredible multiplayer experience. Released in 2012, it has been remastered by Beamdog and launched in March 2018 with several improvements.

Even if you are veterans of this game, you will find something new thanks to Ossian Studios who revamped the Darkness Over Daggerford original module and greatly expanded, with a lot of story content, the Tyrants of The Moonsea module. Despite its worn-out graphics, it still delivers a great immersive and customizable D&D experience, and that is what counts.

2 Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition

The direct sequel of the 1998 title is a work of art and managed to improve almost every aspect of the original Baldur's Gate. The free roaming approach in the open world is slightly reduced in favor of a bit more railroaded experience but without compromising the quality of the game, making it more consistent and user-friendly.

Wonderfully mixing the improved combat and the top-notch narrative, Baldur's Gate II offers, once again, a memorable journey in the Forgotten Realms that can boast not only a great storyline but a lot of high-quality side-quests.

1 Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition

This game is a timeless classic. Planescape: Torment is, especially story-wise speaking, the best D&D experience available. This title can boast an outstanding quality in writing that elevates this game not only to the best spot on this list but also among the best video games ever made.

The Nameless One’s mature and emotional journeys through the city of Sigil, the memories, and the planes of reality are beyond fascinating. The obscure atmosphere, the dark humor elements, infinite walls of brilliant and deep dialogues, everything helps to achieve a once-in-a-lifetime masterpiece.
