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...

 
 
 
 

It's been a while

RPG of the Year - 2003

RPG of the Year - 2002

This was a surprisingly dry year, at least compared to last year. There are only 18 games this time and sadly, not all of them are great. Let's hop into it! #5 - Elder Scrolls 3 - Morrowind (PC) ...I am not a fan of this game. And ye...

 
 
 
 

Old School Games: Dragon Warrior III

On the internet I've found that I'm not the only guy who likes Dragon Warrior, which we now know by their original title Dragon Quest. I'm resistant of that title change, which occasionally annoys many fans of the series. One of my discu...

Dear gaming gods: Please resurrect me!

Forgotten Gems: North & South

This image just screams "historical accuracy." Back in the NES days I didn't have my own system so all of my gaming was done at other, luckier kids' houses. Since my friends didn't want to sit there for hours while I played "The Legend o...
