It's no surprise that this year is packed with potentially awesome RPGs, and is arguably one of the, if not the greatest year ever for this wonderful genre, but for which of these are you most hyped about?

Firstly, a shout out to what might be released late this year, the sequel to one of my favorite games in recent years:

Legend of Grimrock 2

And now for 2014 line up ..

  • Pillars of Eternity (formely known as Project Eternity)

  • Wasteland 2

  • Dark Souls 2

  • Monolith's X RPG

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

  • Might & Magic X

  • Divinity: Original Sin

  • The Age of Decadence

  • South Park: The Stick of Truth

Witcher 3 is going to be so boss. My only gripe with the last one is that it wasn't open world and felt pretty restricted and linear.

#10 Posted by finalfantasy94 (26892 posts) -

certainly is alot of rpgs im excited to play this year. Around 6 or 7 im looking forward to.

Just something i like, don't give it much of a thought. What RPGs are you most interested in?

#13 Posted by Wickerman777 (1585 posts) -

Didn't read. :)

But Witcher 3 will slay all. Maybe not in sales but certainly in quality.

  1. It doesn't sound like you've played too many JRPG with that comment
  2. Too much hyperbole on this damn forum
  3. It's a good thing Lightning Returns isn't Final Fantasy XIII, a game released in 2010

Worst JRPG of all time gets a sequel. Yay.

Fallout New Vegas 2 is the only RPG I want. NV is a masterpiece with superb writing, characters, and story with choices that actually matter. Way better than Fallout 3.

His post was exaggerated, but i don't particulary have much faith in Lightning Returns, considering how horrible the stories were in FFXIII and XIII-2, even though i'm puzzled why people would praise the story in any Final Fantasy game. There are many, many JRPGs with genuinely great stories(great writing, interesting plot, great characters), like Dragon Quest V and Mother 3.

On the plus side, Lightning Returns may have great level design given the info on it that it's an open world design free to explore. It'll sure have high production values, like past FF games.

I'm psyched for RPG's in 2014. I've already preordered Bravely Default. Will also preorder Witcher 3, Fallout 4 & Dark Souls 2. I'll get Wasteland 2 through the Kickstarter program I supported.

#24 Edited by uninspiredcup (12854 posts) -

Video games are fun. The ones with the role player are really good.

I'm personally more excited about Project Phoenix going into beta than almost all other releases this year.

#32 Posted by adamosmaki (9840 posts) -

Wow wow Legends of Grimrock 2 is been made and is coming out this year ? Great news

Also you are missing grim dawn

#33 Posted by milannoir (1571 posts) -

Wasteland 2 and The Witcher 3 alone make this a great RPG year! Can't wait to play them.

#34 Edited by jhonMalcovich (5283 posts) -

Divinity: Original Sin will feature XCOM combat. It looks VERY GOOD.

But the best footage is here. It's in Russian though, but it shows all aspect of the game.

Yeah, they're working on it with a "wen it's done" release date, here's the sub-forum about the sequel. Some speculate that it might make it this year, but i don't know. I hope that it does release this year, as long as it's not rushed out the gate.

Yeah, i forgot about Grim Dawn, it was on my radar a wile ago. I'm probably missing some other potentially awesome games most likely, the ones i wrote in the OP are the ones that i am keeping an eye out for.

Visited their site and seems there is licensed series based on Legend of Grimrock on kickstarter and it definitely is a game with enough content to make a great movie/series

You really do have bad taste in games, women, and music! Final Fantasy and Selena Gomez are a bad combination

#46 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (16234 posts) -

I wish I could play X on PC just like I did the first game.

Grimrock 2, pillars of eternity and darksouls all look awesome.

#47 Posted by Articuno76 (19074 posts) -

Trails in the Sky Second Chapter is also coming out this year (and First Chapter is coming to Steam).

Depends, SMT4 came out early here to a slightly increased price(with an incentive of a "collectors editition") so it could happen very early 2015 if not this year unless of course it gets delayed in Japan
