Ten Role Playing Games To Look Forward To In 2012

"There was a time when the role playing game (or RPG) dominated the gaming consciousness. That was years ago now though, and the genre has fallen into a relative obscurity that is only brightened by a few western RPGs from Bioware and Bethesda. All hope is not lost for the RPG gamer though, with next year holding a veritable treasure drove of RPG titles. Read on for ten things to look forward to in 2012."

Mass Effect is no RPG!

I love the ME series. But, ME3 looks more like an arcade shooter (like The Club) than a RPG. IMO. It looks like it should have a points multiplier in the top corner and power ups on the ground.

But IMO I've always said: mass effect has never been an rpg, just a TPS with light rpg elements.

But who cares what genre it is. It's amazing and that's what's important.

Dragon Age 3... that should be on a list of "Ten RPGs you hope don't come out in 2012". I don't hate the franchise but anyone can see how rushed DA2 was. Reusing a dungeon over 5 times is not acceptable. In addition not being able to gear your companions was silly. what was I suppose to do with all that gear I couldn't use?

Diablo III
Ni no Kuni

those are my top 2

Okay but I would not call Versus XIII a spinoff.
