Looking ahead: Five most anticipated RPGs of 2013

With key exceptions, video game role playing games have seemed to be on a bit of a decline in years past. Maybe they're slowly falling out of favor with the gaming mainstream -- even with all of the free-to-play MMORPGs that seems to be coming out every few months. Then again, maybe the genre as a whole was just holding back for a great year sometime in the future. (Core Blaze, Dark Souls 2, PC, PS3, Tales of Xillia, The Elder Scrolls Online, Xbox 360)

I thought the last interview that the producer of DS2 gave put significant doubt on the game making a 2013 release?

Edit: Never mind. I actually read the article and it seems the author is also unsure of a release this year.

Yeah I somehow completely forgot that. It's only 25% done, so remove Dark Souls II from that list. Guarantee I got disagrees for Lightning Returns but I could give a crap, I loved FFXIII (hated FFXIII-2) and am cautiously excited for LR.

"Guarantee I got disagrees for Lightning Returns..."

Ha! I thought the same thing. Just so you know, I didn't give you one. Couldn't care less about the games you like, actually. You enjoy your games, I'll do the same with mine.
I'm really hoping DS2 comes to PS4/720 in addition to their predecessors. Even if it's just a resolution and framerate upgrade, I'd be pretty happy.
