Two more from this year you might want to consider:

  • Diablo III: Evil Edition: a lot of fun. also a lot of replay value with the multiple character classes and difficulty levels.
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth: I think this is some of the best material Matt and Trey have written in years. It's bolstered by some solid RPG mechanics, similar to the Paper Mario games. I enjoyed it a lot the first time around but I'm not sure if I want to play it again after seeing all the jokes once already.

Also think about: Fallout 3 & New Vegas, The Witcher 1 & 2, Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut, Rogue Legacy, Persona 3 & 4, Bastion, Deus Ex 1 & HR

@thepickle: What? You immediately create two player characters in Divinity: Original Sin.

I will admit I have not played Divinity but on the wiki it says you start as either a woman or a warrior.

The game has crashed to desktop twice. Also, I was in one of the caves in that beach area and my crew would not follow me.

With the giant spiders? They seem to get confused by the uneven terrain in there...

I eventually figured it out. They don't follow unless you light one of the torches so you have to take on some of the enemies by yourself.

I always go for spell casters as my first class in RPG's. So far it's been tough with the mage, but it's Dragon Age. The game is supposed to be tough. I wouldn't want it any other way (but some healing spells would be nice).

Before today's game, some St. Louis Rams players came out of the tunnel like this:

In response, the St. Louis Police Department released this incredibly aggressive statement.

The whole, ridiculous thing is worth reading but here's my favorite bit.

"I know that there are those that will say that these players are simply exercising their First Amendment rights. Well I've got news for people who think that way, cops have first amendment rights too, and we plan to exercise ours. I'd remind the NFL and their players that it is not the violent thugs burning down buildings that buy their advertiser's products. It's cops and the good people of St. Louis and other NFL towns that do. Somebody needs to throw a flag on this play. If it's not the NFL and the Rams, then it'll be cops and their supporters."

Rams proceeded to whoop the Raiders 54-0, so we know whose side the football gods are on.
