Reddit. Giant Bomb. Comic Vine. Hmmm... Twitch.

  • Reddit...well, parts of Reddit are cool/funny/interesting. A lot of it is, sadly, pretty fucking abysmal. I guess it depends on what you want out of it though.

Reddit is like 4chan — it is what you make of it. Some communities are amazing (i.e. AskHistorians) and some make me want to vomit blood. You just focus on what you want, and let other people do their thing. Kind of like real life.

Different people like different things.

And this is okay.

The US helps clean up FIFA; The EU helps preasure Valve to have a better refund policy.

Not quite an equal trade, but I'll take it.

@viking_funeral: You mean how Morrowind is still the best Elder Scrolls game?

Fuck yes, it is.

But that's mostly because of storyline and setting. Oblivion may have been way more mainstream (even changing the environment of Tamriel to be more like LotR) but it's tech and gameplay was a step above Morrowind, just like Skyrim was to Oblivion.

@bollard: Think about the leap from Oblivion to Skyrim, or even from Morrowind to Oblivion. Heck, from any Elder Scrolls game to the next.

I think people are excited about what kind of leap in gameplay and tech may be found in the next Fallout. I am.

That's weird. I haven't received my copy yet.

*checks*

Ah, released first for Xbox One, and free on Games for Xbox Gold. Huh. Well, I guess that's good publicity for them. I wonder when the full release is today.

Oh, Polygon.

If you can't be relevant through excellence, be relevant through controversy.

Neat.

I'm as equally excited for the theme of the new game as I am for the naga person. I just don't know how I'm going to squeeze this game into my schedule this year. What a great year for video games.

Huh. I completely thought that was some lighthearted humor on the Beastcast.

Does that make me jaded? Generally skeptical?

Anyway, welcome aboard, duder!

Oh, man. I'm just going to start listing them off, because otherwise I'll be here for hours trying figure out the placement of each game.

  1. Final Fantasy 6
  2. Deus Ex
  3. Persona 3 FES
  4. Final Fantasy Tactics
  5. Dark Souls
  6. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II
  7. Planescape: Torment
  8. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
  9. Baldur's Gate II
  10. Dragon Age: Origins

It's too early to add The Witcher 3. Probably next year. I'm also likely forgetting some favorite RPG I've played several times. It'll probably come to me when I'm pooping or something.

Edit — I knew it! I forgot about Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. G'damn do I love that game. Sorry, Mask of the Betrayer. You're my #11.

Edit 2 — Ugh. Knights of the Old Republic II should be on this list. Sorry, Persona 4. Maybe my planned replay of you this summer will throw you back on the list.
