2014 - The Year of the RPG (Strategy Informer)

From Strategyinformer.com: "As a huge RPG fan (it’s now my favourite genre thanks to Call of Duty blandifying the FPS) I was highly disappointed by the turn-out in 2013. As console development costs sky-rocketed and release dates slipped only a handful of notable RPGs turned up. If we’re ignoring MMOs and Point-n-click Action RPGs (which we are in this whole article) there was only really Shadowrun Returns, Dragon’s Crown, Ni No Kuni and Tales of Xillia, apart from a few notable remakes like Persona 4 and Baldur’s Gate II and smaller titles like Van Helsing or Mars: War Logs. Thanks to slippages however 2014 is now absolutely bursting at the seams with quality RPGs. Shall we have a look? Hold on to your wizard stick.". (Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, PC, PS3, PS4, Shadowrun Returns, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Witcher 3, Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity, Dragon Age and an expansion for Shadowrun.
This is going to be a good year for me.

You're not interested in Lords of the Fallen? We've not seen gameplay yet, but it should be interesting as well.

And i thought Shadowrun Returns wasn't received that well.

Honestly, I've heard little to nothing of that game, personally.
Having checked out a video of it, people are likening it to a Darksiders or the newer Castlevania games . . . neither I liked all that much, truthfully.
As for Shadowrun, it was received fairly well overall. It was exactly what I, as well as most of the people who helped Kickstart it, wanted and the only real complaint from most people was that they felt the UI was too simplified and "made for tablets". Something I find silly, being that it was a very smooth interface, no matter what you played on.

Dudes, check out Divinity: Original Sin. Best surprise I had in months, and launching Feb. 28.

Yeah.
Forgot to list that one, myself. Have to love Larian.
