Realm of Gaming's Mark Ainsworth tells of 7 RPGs to look for in 2011.
Witcher 2 will be great, the first is so much better than DA:O.
I love Bioware, the Mass Effect series and Knights of the old Republic, a lot. But I thought that DA:O was kinda average, and i'm not someone that dislikes fantasy settings either.
DAO was average. The Witcher came out a year before DA0 and it was way better.
Witcher 2 will easily be RPG of 2011.
Mass Effect was turned into to a shooter. Unless ME3 going to be more like ME1 and not ME2. DA wasnt that great. Bioware really gone down hill since EA took over I hope Star wars TOR is good
I don't consider Mass Effect to be RPG anymore, I mean from a technical point of view, it is action 3rd person shooter with minor RPG elements. Still a great game but Ratchet and Clank ACiT was more RPG than ME2 to be honest.
@ despair lol.. Soryy but armor , statistics etc aren't RPG element. RPG is Role Playing, Choices and dialogs. World of Warcraft is like Diablo II a hack and slash ... meanwhile Mass efect, witcher and bg2 is a rpg.
yes RPG is role playing but there are many ways to interpret what is an RPG, hell if you wanted nearly every game can be considered an RPG. But for me it felt stripped, especially if you compare it to the first Mass Effect(which I thought was terrible mostly). Sure it still had experience points and yes choices and consequences(some times) were there. But as an RPG fan and from what is normally considered and RPG it fell short. Why not just call it 3rd person shooter rather than RPG as thats what its closest to. Oh and if you ever saw me post on N4G before you would know that I absolutely love ME2, sure there were problems but it was my GOTY choice. So its not from a dislike of the game I'm coming from.
Amazing year for RPGs.. The Skyrim announcement alone had me jumping up and down and applauding what will be another amazing Elder Scrolles experience Mass Effect 3 is obviously the no-brainer purchase of the year Deus Ex is easily one of my most nticipated titles of this year I love the fact that Dragon Age 2 is a completely new setting Two Worlds 2 sounds like they nailed it this time around All around..can't wait to explore these new worlds..although I'm still pressed to finish all of last year's RPGs in my collection
Hummm... good list... but missing the most important ... Diablo 3.
No Dungeon Siege 3
both are hack and slash games not rpg :P
Mass Effect 3 looking foward too the most. Square-Enix Fudged FFXIV so bad, they had to delay Deus Ex apparently to a possible 2012 release. Damn SE.
Last I heard was April-ish, hadn't heard about the possible 2012 change??? Will rage if true.
yeah they said Fiscal year 2012 which starts normally around March/April
Are you meaning this - http://www.pcgamer.com/2010... as that's what I heard a while ago and couldn't find anything to the contrary.
nope that is it what is suppose to be the new release for some wired reason business and actual years are different if forgot why tho i didn't pay much attention in accounting class
Missing so many rps's on this list it is not funny.
for a near release - Two Worlds 2 (can't wait to see the magic system in action).
Two worlds2 has already been released, bought it like a month a go (Finland). So the less patient people may import it from somewhere, at least my copy has full English localization. Guess the publishing problems affected only UK and US?
For me Mass Effect 3 Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Pokemon Black/White Deus Ex The Last Story [If it ever gets a US release] Dragon Age 2
What No Zelda? Looking forward to The Witcher 2 and Guild Wars 2 and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning which I just found out about like 10 minutes ago has some heavy hitters making it. This game may be the surprise hit of 2011. 38 studios (Owned by Pitcher Curt Schilling who is a serious PC gamer) has brought in The lead designer of Elder Scrolls Morrowind and Oblivion Ken Rolsten plus Todd McFarland for character creation and Best selling author RA Salvatore for story design. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
