My friends, like Bruce Wayne, crouched over his dead parents, CRPG's have been dead for many years , hopeless, lost. Locked in a prison fighting asain people until Laim Neeson appears. Publishers refusing to publish them due to turn based, thinking peoples game-play, for adults.

Now, Pillars Of Eternity, Wasteland 2 and Divinity: Original Sin, it seems pc has brought real RPG's back with vengeance for shoting both parents.

At this point, is it a foregone conclusion, pc's has not only won this year when it comes to RPG's, but been on a round the world trip? Do consoles have hope? Can anything even come close to challenging these three titles, only possible on pc?

Upcoming arguments:

"Graphics are shit"

"LOL top down view"

"Indie trash"

"Looks boring"

"Didn't get GOTY"

"Got X on gamespot" If the gamespot score is indeed high

"Got X on metacritic"

etc, etc, etc.

Also, how does a platform defeat another?

How unusual, a Unicup thread that's PC vs Console.

#5 Posted by 7MDMA (240 posts) -

DOS might be a confirmed modern CRPG classic but that's all for now. From what I've seen of Wasteland it isn't in the same league but I do have high hopes for POE. Any console title touching the interactivity and variable RPG appeal of DOS? Nope.

Let's start with the fact that the graphics are shit. It's indie, so I'm not surprised. The whole top down view is making me laugh, too. It's the year 2014. Shit like that just looks boring. etc, etc, etc.

I definitely don't see this getting GOTY. Gamespot has yet to review it, so its score remains X for now, which is just hilarious on its own. And don't even bother bringing up metacritic, because it doesn't count here.

Couldnt get into Wasteland 2 and havent played Pillars of Eternity but Divinity: Original Sin (which also took me a while to get into) has turned out to be one of the best RPGs iv ever played. Seriously all the praise for this game is so very true. After I have finished this game -which I am not even close to doing- I feel like giving Wasteland 2 another go.

Dark souls 2 will still win goty. Except kevin most of the GS staff doesn't appreciate these types of games.

think it Means "Classic" RPG meaning it attempts to aim for the PnP RPG, lots of dialogue, action and reactions, very free where skills outside of combat are useful and meaningful.

Either this is an indirect jab at my post or i'm pretty good.

As far as RPGs go , we won't see anything like DOS exclusively on consoles anytime soon . PC RPGs had always been more complex and complete package than console RPGs . The best thing you can get on consoles is Demon Souls but it lacks story .

On other hand , not many high profile console games are coming out this year as well . Most of them are either multiplatforms or PC exclusives .

What kind of trash looking game? It looks like one of those games you see on the floor when you walk into the store and you pick it up to put back on the shelf.

You'd be saying the same thing about No Man's Sky if it wasn't revelead for PS4 at E3.

Also: Wolfenstein is a great old school FPS (secrets in levels, health pick ups, carrying multiple weapons, ...)

No. its a trash

carying multiple weapon doesnot make old school. it was very slow paced, shitty stealth section, on rail action adventure segment. and worst of all. awful level design and pacing.

it should have been made by one who create RTCW. i dont know why they sold their rights,

thank you for summing up this forum to me... the graphics are hardly s*it for its style of game..... I don't know what consititutes as indie when the game was half made by a team and then funded a great deal. its the year 2014 .... you want mindless cutscenes with no thoughts or anything, maybe Dragon Age 2 is up your alley.

GOTY? where does he say that.... RPGoty is a possibility though.... well sadly the pop culture of Dark Souls 2 might prevent it. but it doesn't deter from the fact that it is a fantastic rpg none the less.

No score from most big sites just shows how casual the media is... congratulations your fanboys of news outlets equivalent to air headed celebrity magazines of gaming. where watch doge ends up being on the front page for a month. I

You have no idea what you are talking about.

Raven is part of Activision and got killed by them. The small amount of people that still work there is making COD DLC now

Yeah, I'm sure they would do a waaaaaaay better job at creating a classic FPS than Machine Games did.

And your sense of nostalgia blinds you. RTCW had way less secrets in its levels than The New Order did, stop kidding yourself.

Remember watching a video of Witcher 2 with this young person (who doesn't appear to be 20 yet) saying he wouldn't play Witcher 2 if it wasn't consoles.

Or was it the other one with the red hair? It's difficult to tell them apart.

last time i check RTCW was not very slow paced, terrible level design, on rail segment.

new order is NOTHING like RTCW. it doesnot even have soundtracks as good as RTCW.

raven didnot make RTCW. gray matter did. and now they sold out to activision.

who are machine games? talentless hacks?

DOS was developed by a professional team with a proven track record that goes back over a decade. So indie in terms of not having a publisher and splashing out on a massive marketing campaign but very competent where it matters most. You're spot on about the graphics: the game looks as good as you can hope an isometric game to be up there with the likes of Diablo 3.

Dude you have ruffled multiple comments by people here. If top down is bad because its 2014, then 2D like Max, Resogun have to be held to that year standard also. Screw GOTY. That's just like an Oscar, a paper weight.

Dark souls 2 will still win goty. Except kevin most of the GS staff doesn't appreciate these types of games.

WHAT?!!! Not Kinect Sports Rivals?!!!!

@uninspiredcup: consoles vs PC... only relevant in GameSpot system wars. Neither Sony, Nintendo, or MS consider the "PC" to be a competing platform for their consoles.

And with the Xbone and PS4's abysmal exclusive lineups for the rest of 2014, this must be some kind of horrible joke to even give consolites the mere hope of the idea.

Dark Souls 1 didn't get goty, either.

Since Demon's Souls got goty in 2009, and the Dark Souls series is extremely derivative, it would be a waste to give DS2 a goty award.
