In its first 4 days, the action RPG Genshin Impact had over 17 million downloads from all its platforms. Along with that, it's estimated that it'll make over $100 million in its first month of release.

The explosive popularity of Genshin Impact leads many people to search for games similar to it and there are a ton of different options for basically every game platform. Also, the games on this list aren't in any particular order.

Here are the top 10 action-RPG games like Genshin Impact:

1. God Eater 3

Platforms: Switch, PC, PS4

The God Eater series has been described as needing an "acquired taste" to enjoy. God Eater 3 focuses on defeating large monsters in gameplay somewhat similar to Monster Hunter. Fans of the series have described this title as being very enjoyable, even though it doesn't improve upon the previous games in the series.

If this is your first time playing a God Eater game and you like Monster Hunter gameplay, you'll definitely enjoy your time in this action-RPG

2. Monster Hunter World

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

Since it's release on consoles, Monster Hunter World has been a hit among fans. It was released on PC a short time later, and has been constantly drawing in new players. You don't need to be a previous Monster Hunter fan to get into it either.

Any RPG fan will love taking down massive creatures with their friends and adorning their avatars with parts of slain beasts. Some people don't like the fact that it takes so long to take down monsters, but you can be sure that the rewards for doing so are well worth it.

3. Diablo 3

Known for its addictiveness, Diablo 3 is a game that's stood the test of time. Even though fans are looking forward to Diablo 4, there still is quite a large community for the third game.

This hack-and-slash action-RPG is obviously quite different from Genshin Impact, but this title has gained its glowing reputation for good reason. If you have the extra time, Diablo 3 is an RPG that you won't regret playing.

4. Dragon's Dogma

Platforms: PC, Switch, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360

Dragon's Dogma is an older title, but one that still has an active community. It's a lesser known RPG, but players who discover it seem to always have a great time.

Its fans admit that it's an extremely odd game, but despite its weirdness the mechanics are awesome. Those who can get over the quirky parts of Dragon's Dogma will greatly enjoy playing it.

5. Final Fantasy XV

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

Final Fantasy has so many games in its series that it's hard to keep track of it. But, the 15th game is very similar to Genshin Impact in a lot of ways. The good news is that you don't need to be familiar with the series to get into this one.

There's a ton of side content, lore, and backstories to dive into. Even if you don't care about the story, the gameplay is enough to merit playing FFXV.

6. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Platforms: PC, Switch, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360

Almost every gamer has heard about Skyrim at some point or another. It's impossible to escape the far reaching effects that Skyrim has had on open world games, and it continues to be an incredible RPG even to this day.

The ability to take it on the go with the Switch has further cemented it as one of gaming's most well known titles. The modding community is very much alive on PC, and the Special Edition gave the older game a makeover.

If you haven't been able to experience Skyrim for yourself, it's definitely worth giving it a shot. Be warned though, it can be extremely addictive.

7. Lost Ark

Platform: PC

Lost Ark is a beautiful RPG with Diablo style gameplay. It's a much newer game only available on PC that isn't very well known in action-RPG circles. Most players concur that it's an incredibly fun game, but it does get a bit grindy towards the endgame.

If you can put up with a grind, Lost Ark is an RPG that's worth giving a try.

8. My Time at Portia

Platforms: Switch, PC, PS4, Xbox One

My Time at Portia is a cute RPG that's much more kid-friendly than the others on this list. It's cartoony graphics and gameplay aren't just for kids though. Anyone can enjoy it's intriguing story and Harvest Moon-esque gameplay.

The world is beautiful and the world is charming, so if you enjoy games like this then My Time at Portia is the game for you.

9. Path of Exile

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

Path of Exile is a free-to-play RPG that was originally released in 2013. Eventually, a newer version was released on modern consoles, along with a new story known as Path of Exile 2. Many people confuse that as an entire new game, but Path of Exile 2 is simply a new story alongside the Path of Exile campaign.

This is one of those F2P titles that you'll regularly see players with thousands of hours in, so obviously many people find it quite addicting. If you're on a budget or think it looks interesting, Path of Exile is a good alternative to Genshin Impact.

10. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Platforms: PC, Switch, PS4, Xbox One

The Witcher 3 is considered to be one of the greatest action-RPGs of all time. There's no denying that the gorgeous landscapes and incredible dialog make it a game that's worth playing through many times.

This single-player masterpiece has recently been ported to the Nintendo Switch, a feat that most people thought would never happen. Due to its immense depth and platform versatility, it's a no brainer that it would make this list.

It's one of those games that every RPG fan needs to play at some point. No matter what platform you play on, it's bound to become one of your favorite titles.
