After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

GR's Best of 2005 Awards

Racing RPG Sports Strategy Editor's Choice
Considering their hardcore popularity, role-playing games didn't get a great deal of love in 2005. But while the pickings were somewhat slim, the deserving winners are in fat city.

 

RPG OF THE YEAR!

Dragon Quest VIII

Publisher: Square-Enix
Developer: Square-Enix
Platform: PS2

 

By the time a series has reached its eighth iteration, most of its fire and lust for virtual life have been reduced to a few smoldering embers and ashes. Not so with Dragon Quest VIII. Instead of attempting to reinvent the wheel with their latest RPG masterpiece, the creators of this magical beast used the lessons learned in their seven previous drafts to craft an RPG so smooth and powerful, the virgins of the world should be glad it doesn't demand a monthly sacrifice. Because we'd listen.

 

RUNNERS-UP!

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: Nintendo
Platform: DS

If you told us in January that a game in which Mario and Luigi team up with baby versions of themselves for chrono-capers was going to be one of the best RPGs of the year, we probably would have killed ourselves and addressed the suicide note to Bioware. Well, we're glad you didn't, because this is a brilliantly localized, wonderfully entertaining RPG with all kinds of appeal.

 

Jade Empire

Publisher: Microsoft
Developer: Bioware
Platform: Xbox

Bolstered by an epic, engaging story, a brand new mythology complete with its very own language, a robust combat system, hours of voice work, an original score and some of the best graphics the Xbox has ever seen, this kung-fu spectacular kicked asses all over the place. More depth would have been nice, but it's still a master.
