RPG of the Year - 2006

Holy shit damn, what a huge year! 57 games! And yes, there was a Sega Genesis game released this year. This is also one of those awkward years where a lot of developers were jumping to the new systems while other ones were still very uns...

 
 
 
 

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...

The Pacifist Gamer Ep001: Dreamcast Godzilla Games

RPG of the Year - 2002

Old School Games: Dragon Warrior III

NES controller phone case

Dear gaming gods: Please resurrect me!
