RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)

RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

GR's Best of 2004 Awards

Posted on Thursday, January 1 @ 12:13:14 Eastern by Duke_Ferris

What used to be reserved for creepy Dungeons and Dragons geeks (ie. the GR staff) is now the dominion of the masses, thanks in no small part to the terrific role-playing games that gave us new lives in 2004.

GAME OF THE YEAR!

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II

Publisher: LucasArts
Developer: Obsidian
Platform: Xbox

An even longer time ago in a galaxy a bit further away, a civil war divided the Jedi order. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords takes the top RPG honors this year, along with a special award for Longest Game Title. Redeem yourself through the power of the Light side, or, should you crave power more than humble good deeds, you can seize the power of the Dark side for your own benefit. Complex, thoughtful and well written, the force is very strong in this excellent sequel.

 

THE RUNNER-UP!

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: Nintendo
Platform: GC

It's a little hard watching Mario go on a power diet, but it's incredily easy to enjoy his smart, funny RPG excursion. Picking up right where the N64 game left off, The Thousand Year Door pokes fun at classic Nintendo conventions while providng a long, satisfying trip through the flatlands of mushrooms and goombas.
