The most promising Xbox RPGs of 2013 and beyond

OXM - Nothing gets us hotter under the collar or moister of armpit than the thought of a new role-playing game - and the years ahead are ablaze with promise on that count, despite a general unwillingness to share details for fear of giving away the status of next gen hardware. (Xbox 360)

I was disappointed by DA2 but I think DA3 will be interesting, providing there's truth to the rumours about taking control of the inquisition.

One thing I'd like them to do with the next gen hardware is dramatically increase the number and variety of combat animations, so that battles look like actual, properly choreographed battles rather than people knocking hitpoints off each other.

i'll be playing all of these games!

cannot wait

though i will be playing them all on pc, except dragons dogma expansion, might pick that up on ps3 or 360, depending on which platform runs better
Meh. Witcher 3 or bust.

The Witcher 3 is going to be amazing. I am really hoping they nail the entire open-world feel while maintaining the affect a player has on the world.

If they make a proper jump mechanic, it would make the world so much more impressive.

Gotta say that's a pretty lame list of games.
Seriously? Lightning returns and mass effect 4?
Those have become two of the most hated series from this gen.

And the rest in that list isn't anything special either.

If you find nothing special in Cyberpunk 2077 or Fallout 3, maybe you should keep playing Halo or Call of Duty.

Or killzone or battlefield

No offense but you're way off on Mass Effect. 3's ending may have angered a vocal view but the series in no way hated by many.
hano  +   979d ago
Well Mass effect has become stale.
Perjoss  +   979d ago
hano, you have to have some faith my friend, for all we know ME4 could be even better than ME1, lets wait and see shall wee. Nobody is saying you gotta go out and buy it on day 1, but at least give them the benefit of the doubt until the reviews start rolling in.

If people want RPG's they should get a gaming PC.
That's where the really good RPGs are coming.

Wastelands 2, Project Eternity, ShadowRun...and many more.
