RPG of the Year - 2006

RPG of the Year - 2005

Now, at first glance, this seems like a huge year. After all, there are 50 games! This was certainly a strong year for RPGs in that there were a LOT, but not so much in terms of quality. I'm confident in my top 5, but the runner ups...oh...

RPG of the Year - 2002

Old School Games: Dragon Warrior III

Dear gaming gods: Please resurrect me!

Forgotten Gems: North & South
