I doubt FFXIII-2 will be the best RPG. I am pretty confident that FFversusXIII will be much better. Hell that entire list looks pretty swell.

LOL the best rpg? where is this talk coming from

agentxk2611d ago

It alludes to the beginning of next year being RPG heavy. I'll still be playing Skyrim and Disgaea 4 though

LeonhartX2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

he means the best RPG recently...

Nate-Dog2611d ago

@Leonhart: Actually I think dangert is saying that Final Fantasy games aren't RPGs, they're JRPGs. Or at least that'd be my opinion on the matter anyway.

blitz06232611d ago

No, the best RPG is coming out in March. And it's in that list.

NewMonday2611d ago

other hopfull releases in 2012:

Tales of Xilla
Last Story
Dragons Crown


Dark Souls is going to be the best.

evrfighter2611d ago

best rpg + final fantasy?
those two go together like oil and water =\

Mass Effect 3 is a confirmed action/adventure game

Dishonored is gonna flop

and Diablo is a dungeon crawler...

rjdofu2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

@evrfighter: Final Fantasy used to be an excellent if not the top RPG franchise.

Agreed Nuka. I'm kind of surprised the author didn't mention Kingdoms of Amalur though. I'm really looking forward to that one.

BinaryMind2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

Hahahahahahahaha FFversusXIII coming out next year... that's rich!

Anderson82611d ago

lol i predict 2014 at the earliest

DigitalRaptor2610d ago

Oh well! we will see on that. It could come out in Japan in December 2012, so by that reasoning it could be the best RPG.

But it's gonna come out 2012/13. If it's not out worldwide by March 2013, I'll eat my shoes!

BinaryMind2610d ago

Hey, I know how that works: you eat a cake the is shaped like your shoes. Come on now!

Andronix2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

I know that's a year earlier but Skyrim is gonna be THAT good!

TheXgamerLive2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

It's official now. "NO" rpg is mearly an rpg anymore.
RPG's have combined with pieces of the best of action adventure/fps,tps.
In reality there will be one or two mith the most acolades, however the best rpg will be the one that most connects within you.

I plan on enjoying the hell out of my favs:)

My most wanted is Mass Effect 3 and The Witcher 2 on the 360.

LOL best RPG....yeah ok then

If no other RPGs are coming out all together in 2012 then yeah it's the best because it's not going against any other RPG.

Rushing_Punch2611d ago

I want Diablo 3 so bad. When is it coming out

blitz0x2611d ago

I'm pretty sure that was announced for november of this year

evercast2611d ago

Diablo 3 won't be coming out this year. No blizzard games in 2011. 2012 will see heart of the swarm and Diablo 3.

despair2611d ago

maybe, its blizzard they tend to delay the hell out of their games(usually to our benefit)

SquareEnixFan2611d ago

Right now it seems the best RPG of 2012 is coming out in March but FF 13-2 is a very close 2nd in my eyes. I'm sure there are more 2012 RPGs to be announced but just like 2010 Final Fantasy and Mass Effect will probably be my top 2 RPGs of the year.

Rushing_Punch2611d ago

I'm weary of ME3 after the botched abortion that was DA2

SquareEnixFan2611d ago

I liked Dragon Age 2. It wasn't a huge leap over Origins and was actually worse in some areas but I think it is a pretty good game overall.

frjoethesecond2611d ago

I'm not even sure ME3 will qualify as an RPG. ME2 was basically a TPS with dialogue choices. They need to return it to ME1 style IMO.

abczby2611d ago

They show how leveling up works and how you can customize every single weapon in the game with up to 3 different weapon mods. It's much more in depth and more "RPG" than Mass Effect 1's leveling and weapons ever were.

KwietStorm2611d ago

Final Fantasy X-2 was crap, and Final Fantasy XIII was crap. XIII-2 doesn't have a good outlook.

SquareEnixFan2611d ago

I must disagree. I loved both X-2 and XIII but to each his own. I understand a lot of people have issues with those two particular games just as I have voiced my many issues with Final Fantasy XII.

frjoethesecond2611d ago

I also loved both those games.

Elda2611d ago

Not true at all,that's your opinion.

despair2611d ago

Hated X-2, loved XIII, excited about XIII-2..that about sums it up.
