This thread is to decide what Wrpg series this gen was the best uh, this gen. Remakes are not included, but Wrpgs from countries that don't speak english, and are localized in english for the first time regardless of english region, will count. Along with remakes not counting, older series can be included if they had at least one new non-remade entry (or again, a never before english localization) this gen. Say for example, Elder Scrolls for better or worse. English games only of course.

There are 27 choices to choose, and you can choose more than one favorite in this poll. Also yes, I know I am probably missing some, these are just series I found on my shelf so please mention them.

I have to replay a few of these before I make my final decision it's not as one sided as the Jrpg thread for me (however 2 series in particular anger me extremely, one of those should be known to everyone by now.)

For me it's a tie between Mass Effect, Witcher and Elder Scrolls.

#2 Posted by PAL360 (26632 posts) -

1. The Elder Scrolls

2. Mass Effect

3. The Witcher

#3 Posted by Heil68 (43186 posts) -

Mass Effect for sure.

#4 Posted by Ballroompirate (22207 posts) -

Have to go with Mass Effect, Skyrim is easily my fav WRPG but as a series ME wins since Oblivion was a horrible pos.

#5 Posted by AdobeArtist (22787 posts) -

Mass Effect
The Witcher
Elder Scrolls
Dragon Age
Deus Ex

My favorites :)

Where is the Souls series in your JRPG/WRPG polls

TC YOUR THREADS FAIL

#9 Edited by Evo_nine (1597 posts) -

Mass effect for sure

#10 Posted by Jakandsigz (4512 posts) -

@Couth_: Not a series dumbshit. Hence DSII.

#11 Edited by BlbecekBobecek (2681 posts) -

Demons / Dark Souls

Out of those mentioned in the poll I voted for the Witcher. Mainly because of the first Witcher game, the second one was a bit of a let down for me.

#12 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38204 posts) -

Mass effect is winning???

It's either The Witcher series or the Souls series

#13 Posted by Couth_ (9973 posts) -

@Couth_: Not a series dumbshit. Hence DSII.

That would make it a series dumb shit

#14 Posted by Jakandsigz (4512 posts) -

Leave it to Glitchspot to have Multiple choice, an then once the first reply comes in switches it to singular. Well, i guess it would be technically more fair this way anyway.

#15 Edited by cain006 (8625 posts) -

Souls series. Number 2 is fallout because of new vegas.

#16 Edited by tonitorsi (8271 posts) -

Skyrim had me playing nonstop, and I'm still playing it today.

Flawed game, but so fun as hell.

#17 Edited by Ballroompirate (22207 posts) -

Of course it's winning, it's the best WRPG series this gen :P

#18 Posted by freedomfreak (38685 posts) -

The Witcher, followed by Mass Effect and Fallout(because of New Vegas).

#21 Posted by adamosmaki (9431 posts) -

Witcher

Two worlds ( Just for Two worlds 2 alone deserves it )

KIngs Bounty

Fallout

Deus Ex

#22 Posted by xCocoTheMonkeyx (354 posts) -

Mass Effect all the way

#23 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (24546 posts) -

Judging from the complete backlash of Mass Effect 3's ending I say Mass Effect.

#24 Posted by Clock-w0rk (3238 posts) -

What a horrendous gen for RPG's.

Souls games by miles.

#25 Posted by AzatiS (7101 posts) -

Most fun i had with MASS EFFECT

The hidden gem is : PATH OF EXILE

DSII is not out yet Dumbshit. Demon Souls and Darksouls are not prequel/Sequel dub shit. The Ips are eve owned by the same people Dumb shit. They ca have gaes about Panda Bears having souls, call it Panda Souls, give it 3 sequels, and you would still believe it's a series with Demon souls because you are a dumb shit dumb shit.

In a gen when at a point 85% of the market was FPS what can you do?

I voted Witcher, but could go with any you mentioned

#29 Posted by padaporra (3389 posts) -

Mass Effect.

#30 Edited by Bigboi500 (29081 posts) -

Fallout is the only correct answer.

#31 Posted by Salt_The_Fries (8278 posts) -

The Witcher, followed by Deus Ex, followed by Fallout, Mass Effect and The Elder Scrolls.

#32 Posted by uninspiredcup (7541 posts) -

Fallout is the only correct answer.

Vegas was ok. 3 was oblivion with guns. It's an insult to the series and games in general.

#33 Posted by treedoor (7478 posts) -

Fallout is the only correct answer.

The Witcher, or Mount & Blade

#34 Posted by waltefmoney (18030 posts) -

Fallout wins just because of New Vegas. That game is something else.

#35 Posted by Sagem28 (10498 posts) -

Fallout, easily.

Mass Deffect at the bottom of the list.

#36 Posted by Ballroompirate (22207 posts) -

Failout 3/NV are the worst RPG's ever created, both were bland and boring. I find it hilarious when people give Skyrims combat crap when NV/Failout 3 had worse combat.

Meanwhile, people are in your shit thread voting for the series even though its not in your shit poll. Many of the games in your poll do not do direct sequels either. Nick off guy.. L2 poll

Souls is a series

TES games always had horrible combat. And out of those 3, Skyrim does the best job of it.
But to call F3 & FNV the worst RPG's ever created ? Dude, no.

On roll playing elements alone New Vegas blows Skyrim out of the water.

Correction:

What a horrendous gen for JRPG's.

#40 Posted by NeonNinja (17318 posts) -

As far as WRPG goes it's a tie between Mass Effect and The Witcher 2. ME as a whole is greater, but Witcher 2 individually is the best I've played this gen.

#41 Posted by jg4xchamp (46993 posts) -

If we're arguing WRPG/JRPG is a style of game: Demon's Souls.

If we are arguing it's a regional thing: Fallout New Vegas.

#42 Posted by Lucianu (9309 posts) -
  • Mount & Blade: Warband
  • Fallout: New Vegas

Oh my god... Mass Per-fect please.

#45 Posted by madsnakehhh (14048 posts) -

Despite not being an RPG...Mass Effect without a doubt.

And yet, it IS an RPG ;)

#47 Posted by GhoX (4670 posts) -

Demon's Soul/Dark Souls. A game's genre is not defined by the location of its development, or Final Fantasy IX would be a WRPG (developed in Hawaii, seriously).

#48 Posted by blamix99 (1607 posts) -

Demons Souls

Mass Effect

witcher

#49 Posted by -Unreal- (24533 posts) -

World of Warcraft.

Sustained multi million subscriber base over almost a decade despite subscription fees never being removed or even reduced. Has won several industry standard awards, industry praise, excellent reviews and has set the bar for the entire genre for outstanding overall quality which has in that decade duration still to be set higher.
