Every notable RPG that's coming out in other words.

Fail list in other words.

nrvalleytime2170d ago

I will say this happens every year with the "if you thought ___ was good, wait until ___" articles.

I'm still enjoying some great games from this year - let's bide our time wisely. :-)

Xof2169d ago

But that's not what makes it a "fail list."

It fails because it's judging unreleased titles, and is therefore nothing more than a cheap attempt to spread hype (behavior that, I believe, is at the root of nearly all of the problems gaming "journalism" is mired in).

Godmars2902169d ago

Funny. That's what I thought I said without having to say it. Didn't think it needed to be said.

Ugh...Only if DA3 is more like origins and actually gets back to its story roots. I WANNA KNOW WHATS HAPPENING WITH MORRIGANS EVIL BABY DAMMIT! I also want my warden back ;< And flemith...Needs lots more flemith.

Captain Qwark 92170d ago

agree with all that. if it remains like da2 they can blow me

Kokombads2170d ago

like i said. rpg isnt about graphics. its about the stroy and gameplay. even though the gameplay is years behind our generation, the fact that it is not repetitive will make the gamers play more. just like suikoden 2, it has a unique gameplay and story line which still for me, is far greater than final fantasy x

DA_SHREDDER2169d ago

Story, yes, gameplay? If it means going back to the turn based roots then im all for it. If not then I will continue to consider this gens rpg's as action games with rpg elements.

Oh_Yeah2169d ago (Edited 2169d ago )

please no turn base,even pokemon would be better as an action rpg on consoles.the rpg genre has came a long way, and we have bethesda to thank for the awsomeness it has became.

Irishguy952169d ago

Your'e talking about Combat then? RPG's don't need to be turn based combat. They need to be RPG's though

DragonKnight2169d ago

Please YES turn-based. Are you kidding? The best RPG's ever made were turn-based. Action RPG's have become stale and generic lately. And Bethesda need to release a game with minimal bugs before they can be credited with anything but attempts at making great experiences. Unfinished games don't mean they are a great developer.

Oh_Yeah2169d ago (Edited 2169d ago )

@dragonknight, bugs are irrelevant when talking about bethesda, look at the sheer size and content of their games. Theyre THEE biggest games and are far from unplayable. It would take then a looong time to sort every bug because their games arnt as scripted as most games. And how arnt turn base games stale...scroll down list of attacks and hit x. Oh how fun. Explore linear spaces...oh how game one way,choices dont effect outcomes .. No man, just no. They are horrible compared to todays rpgs. If you want them im sure theres many you missed on older systems where they should stay.

DragonKnight2169d ago

Bugs are irrelevant? You just sounded like those people who award Bethesda for making attempts. Bugs are COMPLETELY relevant. What use is the scope of the game if most of your experience with it is bug riddled? They don't get a pass just for sheer size. If they can't make a large game with minimal bugs, then they either suck as programmers (most likely since they are known as Bugthesda) or need to scale back their games and consider turn-based RPG's.

Action RPGs are completely stale now. They are all the same except for a few like Demon's/Dark Souls. Turn-based RPG's haven't been done in awhile for the most part, allow for a more strategic form of play, and also allow for a more thorough experience with the game play since you're taking your time rather than trying to mash your way through battle after battle. Action RPGs are degenerating into standard action games with RPG elements. I'm looking at you Mass Effect.

Oh_Yeah2169d ago (Edited 2169d ago )

Alright, im gonna take a hunch and say you havnt played fallout or elder scrolls this gen and are just going off what some of the over dramatic people say. Seriously man, ive never encountered even close to game breaking or experience ruining bugs. demon/dark souls is amazing also ill give you that. as for the rest of your opinion i guess..we find different things good..bethesda creates worlds with paths, with many options..where as final fantasy esque games create a path within a world, with limited options. Idk i respect your opinion and all but ive played enough turn base rpgs to know that imo the genre is better today. And strategy isnt needed in turn base really..just grind to get your level up and your a beast. A game like can play stealthy, magic, two handed, bear hands, all the above and more whenever you want really ...throw it on master difficulty from the start and youll get creative and strategic.
