Can any game really challenge the Elder Scrolls throne? eGamer journalist, Adam, attempts to answer this question.
Kingdoms of Amalur & Mass Effect 3. Skyrim has 8 more days in my home. Then Mass Effect 3 Skyrim DLC, Mass Effect DLC and Kingdoms DLC. Life is good :D
anything that isnt broken.... Kingdoms is sounding alot better and Mass Effect 3 i agree with completely cannot wait to get back into that universe
Skyrim killer == Gran Turismo. I know they're completely different, but I've clocked in some unreasonable amount of hours on GT5. GT is the RPG of racing games.
oh some little ole game called............... GUILD WARS 2! which will most likely be the killer of everything not named Diablo III! (speaking from PC perspective)
Kingdoms seems alittle weak in comparison. Demo was not the greatest. Mass effect isn't even an rpg anymore so why even try and act like it is. Me2 held ur hand the whole way through and just truly sucked in every way possible. 3 probably will suck as well. They ruined dragon age 2 and mass effect2, why get excited for 3.
Thanks for the input.
Good combat(either strategic Rpg, or just decent Action rpg) Feeling of character progression(strength wise and recognition) against the world(Demons/darks souls, Witcher 1 and 2, Dragon age, Kotor, FF, Morrowind). And affect the world via actions. Not just a random assortment of fetch/kill quests which no character will remember or care about. Decent story.
Skyrim was horrible, I sold my copy including map for 1600 microsoft points and was glad to do so. We dont need a Skyrim killer because Skyrim still hasn't dethroned Dragon Age: Origins as best RPG. I am looking forward to Amalur, but still won't come near Origins for its amazing scale and story telling.
i hated dragon age. it was like playing an MMOrpg without the MMO. just crappy, dice-roll combat trying to masquerade as real-time combat. yawn! skyrim destroys it. but i don't think skyrim is all that great. i couldn't bring myself to finish it after 80-100 hours of side quests and wandering. REALLY looking forward to Reckoning
anything thats not full of glitches would be a good starting point
Kingdoms of Amalur... be ready for possibly the game of the generation... the talent behind Kingdoms of Amalur doesn't come together that often... Be amazed when this game hits the shelves... Because something tells me they are the new kings on top. and I'm not judging that off the Demo... granted it was good but it was buggy.... The final version of this game is going to dominate... Something also tells me that KoA isn't going to have anywhere near the issues Skyrim has... the art style doesn't seem to strain the system... and the load times on the Demo anyway were faster than anything Skyrim can compete with. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Twisted Metal.. My February games. and The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360 in April...
Hell yeah Kingdoms of Amalur is gonna be tight. Already got it pre-ordered.
In my opinion skyrim needs no killer. It hits buttons that few other RPGs hits and it doesn't really sit in the same books as games like fable and especially MMO's. It does it's own thing but I'd welcome competition - but I'd say a really important factor is 1st person combat. The bulk of RPGs are 3rd person and I like the immersive approach of a first person view. Yeah its petty but a little extra work and games like two world II could easily compete with skyrim in terms of combat and graphics.
To me dark souls already killed skyrim. So much So that I already traded my copy in for uncharted 3. Very little doubt that it will be my last elder scrolls game. Now for the souls series, they could do no wrong
2 games come to mind. Elder Scrolls 6 and Fallout 4
Kinda my sentiments too. For me Bethesda are the kings of RPG's, just like Rockstar are the kings of the sandbox genre. Although Kingdoms Of Amalur has kinda popped out of nowhere for me, never really noticed it til now and after looking at a few videos, im actually very excited about it. As much as i love Skyrim, i lways wished for more of a karma system and choice & consequence focus. Kinda like Mass Effect & Heavy Rain did.
You should take incredible notice. Ken Rolston - Lead on Oblivion and Morrowind is the executive director... R.A. Salvatore - Bestselling Author... Contributor to AD&D Universe... Forgotten Realms... the creator of Drizzt... his pedigree in the fantasy world alone is more than enough reason for this game to peek your interest. Todd Mcfarlane - Creator of Spawn/numerous wonderful action figure lines.... He is the Character/Monster Designer... and all these guys were brought together by the company head... Curt Schilling... that's right the former professional baseball player.... I'll say it once and I'll say it again... Everyone sould have this game on their radar. Because talent like this doesn't come together that often.
Yeah, when i seen that mentioned on a preview i was reading it definitely got my attention, i started looking it up big time. Played the demo today, really enjoyed it. Two small things that bugged me, the static minimap, hate them in any game, much prefer it when it moves ot your point of veiw. The other thing was the archery, dont like the feel of it at all, whereas i love it in Skyrim. Doesnt matter, im still looking forward to this game. But only after i finish Syrim, one huge RPG is plenty.
WAITING FOR A PATCH.
PS3 user I take it?
Skyrim is the Skyrim killer... Boring and Tedious.
Dark Souls already killed Skyrim IMO, but I think Amalur and the Witcher 2 will be the best this year.
Witcher 2 was technically the best RPG of last year.
Am I alone in my discovery of Skyrims inferiority to Morrowind.....still ........8 years later.... Is Skyrim an ambitious mess and Oblivion a mess lacking ambition? *ponders*
Diablo 3. "And the heavens shall tremble"
