Most Anticipated RPGs of 2011

RPGLand: "Usually, fans vote in our monthly top 5, but now, we’re gonna have some of the fun for ourselves.

"I’ve tried to post this for like a month and a half but I’m convinced it’s cursed. Other updates were fine, but when it was time to work on this one, I’d either get a huge headache or start coughing up gunk any time I tried. Remember my most recent trip to the hospital? Yeah I was chipping away at this before that all went down. So, a couple of these games are out now. Well whatever, here are our “Most Anticipated Games of 2011,” broken down by platform and then a multiplat category."

Skyrim, Witcher 2, and Guild Wars 2 are too much; I'm officially buying a new PC this year. My hand is forced (into my wallet).

Looking forward to getting tactical with Disgaea 4 and Valkyria 3, even though the latter is not yet announced. I'm sure it will come.

make sure you build it or get a friend to build it though ^_^ (if u wern't considering that already :P)

save a little cash and get a better machine in the process, go on overclock.net and post your budget and considerations - might want to wait for the new generation of graphics chips though because prices will drop and performance will skyrocket.

Also, it will last nicely through the first half of the DX11 generation (2-3 years or so) until the next gen of consoles appear and allow multiplats to get a step up in quality (though, 360 is going to collapse soon unless they find a suitable way to release games larger than 7GB, hence why they want to push the casual motion sensing rubbish that is working for nintendo at the moment)

FF(insert numerals != XIII here) > FF13

Most of the best RPGs are on PC and HandHelds.

imoutofthecontest4882d ago

Seems that way, especially recently.

2011 the year of the PC. Oh hang on that's every year.

Forget Elder Scrolls 6, Skyrim Can Easily Be Made Into A Next-Gen Game

ScreenRant's Stephen Tang writes, "The Elder Scrolls 6 won't be releasing for a while, and in the meantime, the modding community has been making Skyrim into a next-gen game."

That’s just laughable to me. I think they’ve squeezed all they can out of an 12 year old game

mastershredder45d ago

"Easily" because they see mods, says the gamer. To heck with licensing, terms agreements conditions, etc. all you need to do is belive in mods. Yeah, so real superficial BS yo.

Do people not want to play a new game? Like, I’d rather see 6 than just a prettier version of a game we’ve been playing since the 360/PS3 gen…

Popsicle44d ago (Edited 44d ago )

Yes please. Did pretty much everything there was to do in this game. Took a very long time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Skyrim is one of my all-time favorites, but I would prefer a new experience.

anast45d ago

They might as well. So far, it looks like ES6 will be mostly developed by AI.

Smellsforfree44d ago

I don't want a next-gen version of a game I've already played to death. Skyrim was a great game, but I'm over it.

I'm Replaying Skyrim (again), and So Should You

Replaying Skyrim after 13 years is a reminder of the progress made in western RPGs over the last decade, but also what's been lost.

anast104d ago

I tried, but it's a poorly made game that insults its customers.

lucian229104d ago

nah, only mods make it decent, and even then it's bad, and this is after i modded for at least 3 years

Nittdarko104d ago

Funnily enough, I'm about to play it for the first time in VR with 1000 mods to make the game playable, as is the Bethesda way
