WatchMojo.com has compiled a top 10 of Western role-playing games published during the 80s and 90s, which excludes MMORPGs and only includes one title per franchise. The ten nominations include titles such as The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, Planescape: Torment, Fallout 2, and Ultima VII: The Black Gate. Even with an honorable mentions section, I feel there are a few strange absences, but overall the video does a solid job when it comes to showcasing the notable titles from the era.
I suspect many will disagree with the editors' choice to put Diablo on the top spot, however:
While Baldur's Gate is certainly a very notable absence, I suspect that the folks at WatchMojo have avoided mentioning it because they intend to talk about Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn in a video about the top 10 post-1999 Western RPGs.
