Nintendo and the brains behind the Dynasty Warriors franchise stress that this game is not part of the main Zelda timeline, but I don’t see why that will keep it from becoming a fan favorite.

FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

2010 GR Awards: Best RPG

Posted on Wednesday, December 22 @ 11:58:07 Eastern by Kevin_Dermody


Post-apocalyptic scenarios have always been an awesome part of our culture, but there've been very few immersive games that fill the role of letting us play Mad Max on demand. While the initial Fallout game did a fair job of painting the picture, it was limited largely by the technology of the time and didn't quite fulfill the "vast desolate expanses" requirement that any good post-apoc must have.

Bethesda, I'd like to thank you, for allowing - nay, encouraging me to act like a weird old hermit in the desert with a rifle. While Fallout: New Vegas should be praised for a wide variety of accomplishments, it seems only appropriate that it won the award for Best RPG; when playing New Vegas, I am playing a role and find myself just as excited to explore the desolate wastelands as anything else. Between the wonderful music, the expansive territories, and the fascinating (if sometimes weird) characters, I've never felt like I was playing a role as much as I did in New Vegas.

Runners-Up: DeathSpank, Dragon Quest IX, Fable III, Mass Effect 2
