I happily agreed with them, griping about bad voice acting and unoriginal themes; but after compiling this list ... I see that maybe we just over-looked or did not consider some very awesome titles that came out or were re-released in 2008.
(Side-note: I think a reason it is hard to appreciate the many RPGs that have come out recently, is that many of them are only made for one of five main consoles [Xbox 360, PS3, PC, PSP and DS], with a couple on PS2. I know from experience that the common person tends to only have one next-gen console. Therefore, they are missing out on the opportunity to even try certain RPGs. )
That said, here is a list of the top rated RPG titles of 2008! May 2009 yield an even larger wealth of awesome titles."
