10 Role Playing Games To Look Forward To In 2013

"There's a small group of people who claim that the role playing game as we know it is dying out. It's a difficult concept to swallow, but there are plenty who support such a notion. Even if you think the RPG still has plenty more to give, there's no doubt that its significance as a genre has decreased rapidly since the 32-bit generation. Though it may be a form that is currently in decline, that doesn't mean next year will be lacking in the role playing department." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Lol Final Fantasy Versus XIII is in the list, We know it's never coming out! It's been over 6 years now (in development for 7).

Final Fantasy Versus 13 in 2013? ... LOL.
With Final Fantasy 13: Lightning Returns already announced for 2013, who expects Final Fantasy Versus 13 for 2013?

As for the list... it's a OK list. There are still to many RPG's to be announced for 2013. Maybe Fallout 4 ?

Thanks Thorstein! I'm glad to see more and more commenter saving us the bother of clicking on these miserable websites.

Personally 2013 looks kind of meh - especially compared to 2012 or 2011. The only RPG I'm actually excited about in 2013 is Grim Dawn, which isn't even on this list.

Duke Nukem Forever was in development hell for over a decade and still came out. Granted, it was complete shit, but still, it was finally released.
Nac  +   551d ago
I still believe.

I'm done giving multiple hits to sites w/top ten lists.
blue_cheese  +   553d ago
yeah i dont even bother anymore, if its not all on one page ill pass, not because im lazy. but just because all the info could have easily fit on one page.
Godmars290  +   553d ago
I could see/forgive using four: breaking it up into 3 selections per page with #1 getting its own special place, how such could be used to to generate suspense, but this 1-1 is clearly and only exploitative.
knifefight  +   553d ago
That's exactly why I reported this stupid crap, but it got punched through anyway. -_-

If you click the little gear and select "Info," you can see the reports on the story. Didn't matter, though. People lap up these top 10's, and Gamingbolt knows how to capitalize on half-assed speculation.

Whatculture is the worst about this. Every article.
knifefight  +   552d ago
Yeah, I've made it a point to never click whatculture. That place should be called whatclass.
SolidGear3  +   553d ago
Dragon Age III and Final Fantasy Versus XIII are the only two I'm looking ahead to on this list.
upallnightgamer  +   553d ago
And Tales of Xillia. I love the Tales franchise and am still pissed that we didn't get the PS3 Vesperia.

@M_Prime -
You should hit me up with which one you like better; DA1 or DA2.
I much preferred Dragon Age 1, in fact I didn't even finish DA2.
I just much preferred the play style and mechanics of DA1.
JasonXS12  +   553d ago
How is Dota2 an RPG?
TheLyonKing  +   553d ago
Everyone on different page, will pass on giving this site hits.

Biggest pet hate on the Internet, well one of them.

I am looking forward to Ni No Kuni and if we are very lucky FF VS 13

What are they supposed to be doing?
mistajeff  +   553d ago
No wasteland 2?
-Gespenst-  +   553d ago
Versus XIII, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Lightning Returns, Persona 5(?), Ni No Kuni, Bravely Default, Kingdom Hearts 3(?).

THOSE are the rpgs I'm looking forward to. None of these dorky, tacky western high fantasy BS rpgs.
SageHonor  +   553d ago
Dragon Age 3

Persona 5 ( Not on the list but i love the series )

Not skipping through all those pages sorry.
aiBreeze  +   553d ago
Dota 2 is now an rpg? The writer loses all credibility imho by adding that there.

On that list, Tales of Xillia is the only one I'm really excited for. Dragon Age 3 is going to disappoint, FF Versus isn't coming out, FF14 realm reborn has a long way to go before I'm interested, elder scrolls game not made by bethesda might as well be called something different, Ni No Kuni is on my radar of ones to look out for and the other ones I haven't even heard of.

Only other RPG I can think of off the top of my head I'm looking forward to is Toki to Towa or whatever it's called.. it's obvious "fan service" in some of the pictures seems a little concerning but everything else looks pretty good.

Ahem!!! ....Phantasy Star Online 2.
Zhipp  +   553d ago
Ooh, I had no idea they were making a Young Justice RPG! That show is the best thing CN has had in years. I'll definitely have to check the game out If it's anything like X-Men Legends--I had a blast playing that with my siblings back in the day.
