    My experience with RPGs is a bit limited and I have a pretty weak laptop (atleast a decade outdated), so I mostly play indie games (and primarily roguelites and roguelikes, in that order).

    But I think I can make some recommendations.

    I haven't played it, but The Witcher 3 has gotten a lot of people hooked and is basically an RPG somewhat similar to an Elder Scrolls game, but better.

    Terraria is an excellent game (especially with friends/family) if you haven't played it yet. If Starbound is the son, Terraria is the father. I haven't played it in a very long time, on the order of six years? But it's been getting hefty content updates since then.
    It'll be a good time sink if nothing else.

    Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight. This is one of those hidden gems that is worth a playthrough or two. It can be beaten in a couple of hours if you're a quick learner (the boss fights are pretty tough, I don't think I beat many of them on my first attempt).
    The controls are some of the best feeling that I've had the pleasure of using, despite using a keyboard. The music and theming mesh perfectly, and there's a good few secrets and a secret boss. To be clear, the game is hard. But I can't recommend it enough.
    Oh, it's a Metroidvania(-lite)

    Nioh, heavily inspired by the Dark Souls series with more in-depth combat. Divinity & Divinity 2: Original sin, good oldschool style RPG made with modern touch, combat is akin to Fallout 1 & 2. Pillars of Eternity, top down turn based DnD dice rolly system RPG, quite fun. Jedi Academy, not only is it cheap it can be modded until it crashes. Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac age, new release of the game FF12, includes watered down version of the Zodiac Job System (can choose 2 jobs instead of 1 per char, can be ignored if you wish) grinding made easier by the possibility to speed the game up by 2x or 4x. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, bad voice acting, cliché story, fun as all hell gameplay climb monsters and stab em in the eye or throw goblins/wolves/people down a high cliff and watch gravity work. Subnautica, survive, explore and escape or SEE, all the puns especially the horrible ones intended, survivaly crafty basebuildy game with an actual ending.

    All of these are available on PC.

    Rimworld is the current "breath of fresh air" game I've been playing. Its really unique and fun.

    I also make quite a few mods for it.

    I know a few gems.

    Earth Bound
    is probably one of my most favorite RPGs of all time. It is pretty hard to describe with words, it is something you need to play to know about. It has a classic RPG feel to it with a unique fast-paced twist that I absolutely love. Earth bound was originally released on the S.N.E.S. If you want to play it one something more recent you can look for it on: S.N.E.S. Classic, New Nintendo 3DS, and the Wii U.

    Fire Emblem Path of Radiance This game is a classic turn based strategy game. This one probably has the best characters, game play, and story of the series. Word for the wise; never play its sequel Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn. The game was probably the worst in every respect, it was so bad it nearly killed the Fire Emblem series altogether. The only console you can find it on is the Nintendo Game Cube; however the Nintendo Switch is getting Game Cube Games as virtual console ports. Perhaps this game will be released on the newest console soon.

    If you're going to play any Bethesda games, I recommend Fallout: New Vegas. It is my favourite and arguably the best Fallout game.
    The Diablo series is also very good, I recommend it highly.

    I endorse this, Terraria is a good choice.

    Here's some for you all:

    Dungeon Master. (PC, Amiga, Atari ST)
    Tags that I will associate with it: first-person, dungeon crawler, 2.5 dimensional, fantasy, VGA graphics.

    Chaos Strikes Back. (Amiga, Atari ST)
    If you think DM 1 was hard, you will find CSB to be close to, if not, impossible. You start out with no equipment in a pitch-black room filled with poisonous worms.
    Additional tags: multiple paths to victory.

    Advance Wars 1 and 2.
    Tags: turn-based, top-down, tactical strategy.

    The lousy suggesting sloth,
    Jim.

    Moor Oakheart Giant Laser Beams

    I would suggest playing CrossCode. It has an interesting storyline, and the game mechanic is also fun, with dozens of fighting skills to unlock. I believe it's a game worth playing.

    Might want to try Grim Dawn - loot table is much like D2 as in infinite variety of multiple item levels & the affix percentages are random for EACH item found i.e. almost impossible to pick up the same wep with IDENTICAL percentages on the affixes.
    The maps are HUGE & ranging in environments even on the same map(s) you traverse. It has MP (max 4 in a party) & runs smooth on most pc's even those that are 5+ years old.
    The AI is smart enough to flee your OP (at times, IF you are OP) & will try to surround/trap you so BE careful & keep an escape route in mind as you may have to kite, (& often will) in order to progress further.
    There are 9 classes & any 2 can be combined at level 10, including the extensive skill tree each class provides making for ANY TYPE of specialist build you wish to try.
    It has 3 expansions available each upping the difficulty...but therein lies the fun.
    You can respec skill trees (but not attributes, except for items given you at beginning of each xpac to allow you to adapt to the new dynamics you are confronting.
    There is a Crucible mode that allows you to face waves of all your favorite (& not so favorite), enemies you encountered & MANY you have not seen yet, (beware), with a reward of six chests you can open every ten levels you conquer. BUT you can end it on ANY level before 10,20, etc. up to 200 (no-one has gone that far not even the devs) for lesser rewards.
    There is an endless dungeon mode called the Shattered Realm where each "shard" is timed with the loot picked up when you decide to leave but inorder to reach each new shard you have to pick up the only loot available from kills in form of souls & greater (elite) souls & when last critter is killed you get to open the next level. It goes on forever if you want & kicks all but my tankiest toons' ASS!! Best suited for MP/groups.
    Hard-core mode need i say more?
    Shared stash which can be duped if you want for endless stashes ( i have about 25 for all the categories of weps armor & crafting mats)
    Crafting, extensive & the Wikki helps you along greatly.
    All toons you have on one account are in a "family" & EACH recipe dropped then right-clicked to learn share the knowledge as a unit, helpful.
    Ok i am only scratching the surface here, it is a little-known gem (IDK why), & available on Steam GOG or from the website...enjoy & see you in multiplayer if you like.
    ONE more thing there is NO pay to win only Loyalist packs that get you some cosmetics/pets etc. 2 of them. Trading is free in MP & nothing is soul-bound unless you change it's appearance (transmog) but that can be reversed to make said item transferrable.
    Did i say many DUNGEONS???
