The Gamasutra Quantum Leap Awards: Role-Playing Games

Well Bethesda has been working on a third installment of the Fallout series since 2004, and I think they've announced it as multiplatform, so whether you're on a ps3, 360, or good ol' pc I guess you have something real exciting to look forward to since you're a fallout fan.

It wasn't even the best Final Fantasy ever. 4,5,6,7,8, and 9 were all better than 10, in my opinion. Also, I think that 12 is going to be much better than 10 was, so if you liked 10, 12 should blow you away.

Anyways, the awards were for games that changed the genre. 4 and 7 were the two final fantasies that represented the biggest leaps forward for the series, so that is why 4 got the mention.
