Disco Elysium is a detective RPG that sets a new standard for storytelling.
Disco Elysium is perhaps one of the best role-playing games of all time, and I don't say that lightly. I haven't played a game that has been able to so masterfully flex to my actions as well as ZA/UM's freshman outing. The writing is sharp, the characters genuine, and the choices possess true stakes.
If you love RPGs, reading or fancy something different - and I mean really damn different - then track down Disco Elysium.
So deep, so well-written, so pleasant to watch, so funny and so dark, so clever, so free and replayable : for sure Disco Elysium is the kind of trip you will remember. One of the best RPG ever made.

Wordy, involving and whip-smart, Disco Elysium is a tremendous achievement which deserves to be held up as the new template for story-driven RPGs.
Literature-centric game, full of unexpected references and non-standard accents. Detective noir meets deep and charming old-school RPG and going to real masterpiece

Looking for something even weirder than Torment and with even more character customization options? Disco Elysium is RPG of the year. Hell, maybe even the decade.
Disco Elysium is not only a deep, innovative RPG, but is also one of those pieces of art that emerge maybe only once a decade. The Belarusian developers brutally throw the loneliness, struggles and helplessness of modern human into the players faces and leave them to deal with it. Disco Elysium not only offers a very deep and engaging story, but also mixes it superbly with some top of the line role playing elements, and gives you one of the most special experiences in recent years.
