2. Dwarf Fortress

Dwarf Fortress is a single-player fantasy game with strategy, RPG and roguelike elements all combined for an enthralling experience. In it, you can control a dwarven outpost or an adventurer in a persistent world. The world is randomly generated with distinct civilizations, dozens of towns, hundreds of caves and regions with various wildlife to explore or plunder for resources.

Why it's no. 2: Undeniably Dwarf Fortress deserves first place in any list for numerous reasons, but the game is hardly accessible to beginners. This is where Crypts of Despair trumps DF, as readers of this list can start off with an simple but extremely fun RPG to ease themselves into a world of adventures and possibilities.

Name: Dwarf Fortress
Developer: Tarn Adams
Category: Strategy, roguelike
Platform: Windows, Mac
Size: 5.64 MB
