Poll: Top 10 RPGs Of The Generation! (123 votes)

Final Fantasy XIII 2%
Valkyria Chronicles 2%
Dragon Age: Origins 8%
Xenoblade Chronicles 16%
Diablo III 1%
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition 15%
Dark Souls II 3%
Fallout 3 10%
Mass Effect 2 12%
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 15%
Others 16%

Gameinformer recently has made a list of top 10 RPGs of the generation and i thought it'd be a good idea to have a discussion about the experiences that we had with the RPGs and choose the best among them which i hope Mass Effect 2 be the victorious (not Skyrim!), the polling options are in a respective order defined by GI's staff and i had nothing to do with it.

I'd go with the true masterpiece, Mass Effect 2 !

What the **** kind on shit poll is this, Final Fantasy XIII?

Can this even be considered serious? pff

1. Demon's Souls

2. anything else is secondary compared to this RPG last generation.

Demons Souls/Dark Souls are 3rd person hack and slash games. Like Diablo 3, there's very little actual role-playing.

My best role-playing game with choice and consequences and an interactive, reactive world and good writing was Fallout New Vegas.

The Souls games absolutely are RPGs...

Wasn't expecting you to say New Vegas... I Like F3 more, but admittedly New Vegas didn't have the luxury of being first up to bat. Just couldn't get past the launch window bugs... it's probably the only game I played in Gen7 that I can honestly say, the performance of the game dragged down my overall opinion of the game in the end. Too many broken quests lines and reloading old saves for me to forgive... Setting was cool but maybe not as fully realized as I was hoping. What they did get right was player choice, alliances and how that effected the overall personal forging of "your own" adventure. I dug that a lot.

I played it super late, because Obsidian.

When I played it the game was hunky dory. It plays the way I want a rpg of this ilk to play. My build and decisions effecting my playthrough creating a proper player driven narrative, and not the facade that The Walking Dead, Mass Effect, or 999 go for is what I loved so much about it. I don't like the vats combat stuff, but New Vegas's questing makes up for that stuff in spades. Bethesda's game in comparison to me is with the exception of Morrowind, typical Bethesda: it's great for escapism.

They create this amusement part of a setting with all this shit going on and it's fun to just explore it, be in it, and enjoy it for just that. A moment to be away. But the actual questing, main line actions, and combat centric stuff is boring to me (unless it's Morrowind, that games speaks Champ). Not that I don't get the appeal of what Bethesda does, I do. I respect it even (more so than I do other devs who make poor gameplay games by stance), but it's not built for me the way New Vegas was.

It's not that it's just boring to you, it's bad. I couldn't force myself to finish Skyrim, I watched the ending on youtube and was shocked at how bad it was. That being said; modding in battlegrounds, more dragons and monsters in Skyrim made for the biggest battles I've seen in any game ever until it would crash because of the 4gb limitation. I am pumped for the next Bethesda game because they make their games so good for modding. I'll buy a super fast pc and watch a few hundred dragons fight an army

Seriously Mass Effect 2 balanced action with RPG in the best possible way ....man that final mission ....Shepard gave that epic speech ....all your decisions had impact on the ending ....that awesome story and narrative ....THAT villain ! ...seriously did Skyrim had any of these ?!

I would say ME3 did a far better job of balancing the action and RPG mechanics. The skill trees were more dynamic with multiple progression options, having more armor configurations (with varying power perks), more weapon variety (that entailed world looting) and bringing back weapon customization.

Fallout 3? Most people found New Vegas to be superior in every aspect (outside of bugs).

Im psyched as well... I did manage to play a little with the controller configuration they had mapped for magika 1 and it was awful. Mouse and keyboard is, no contest, best way to mix and match spells on the fly in that game... The controller settings had you holding buttons which led to splitting the spell choices... needless to say, pulling off quick spells while maneuvering was a chore. Still, if they sensibly remap them to find a better solution Ill buy on ps4... right now im looking forward to a steam purchase.

Which is why most of the games are played behind chest-high-walls.

I guess Mass Effect 2. Good list. I've played all but three of them and all the games I would nominate other than Lost Odyssey made the list.

Last gen had a lot of good RPGs. It's a really tough call for me, but I'm going with Xenoblade.
