Tactics Ogre 3... Heck, any new game in the Ogre battle franchise would do. Those games story have always pulled me in!

Doesn't have to be a true sequel, a spiritual successor would do, but Viva Piñata was a game I want more of so badly it would sell me on a console.

There are a ton of greats that spring to mind... Though some might not fall strictly into the RPG category.

My all time favourite series is Ogre Battle. Tactics Ogre above the rest. It's crazy story, and branching paths stands out to me most of all because the first ending I saw had my player character assassinated... 40+ hours of play time, and having seen his sister and best friend have died in this horrible war. I was sold.

Another series I remember fondly were the Phantsy Star games (still sad we never saw a true successor to those). Technology and magic... Combo attacks... 80's Anime art.

Breath of Fire stands out to me too... Most of them do at least. Dragon Quarter among them.

The Mario and Luigi games are charming and mechanically great.

Xenogears (the original) and Xenoblade Chronicles are great games I've returned to recently with the new one on its way... Blue Dragon is one I go back too as well.

On the idea of sequels, Dragons Dogma needs one. The first was good, but lacked story threads to keep you motivated.

One more I'd love to see continued: Ni No Kuni. Just like Dragons Quest an Blue Dragon, that feeling of PURE jrpgness it has does something few games do for me.

I could go on... But I won't.

Grabbed the Delux and ZombiU, and am waiting for Lego City Stories next. I'll get Mario when there is a drought of games to play, because its a Mario game, and while not always fantastic, they are always fun to play casually.

Such is the folly of Hubris.

Sad for everyone (left) at Silicon Knights, especially those who worked on Too Human (even if they aren't at the company anymore). Too Human COULD have been an amazing game...

Really hope someone grabs the thor licence and makes a game that does what Too Human should have... but that's not likely to happen.

@umdesch4: sorry, my "evolve or die" comment wasn't one directed at anyone, only something in the article HumanoidTyphoon had linked to try and make their point.

Certainly there are ways to get at what you want quickly and easily that don't require a "search" field, especially when you only use a dozen or so programs on a regular basis.

As to why you would "bolt another start menu" to your task bar in order to quickly access the things you use, when there is ample room on the task bar to "pin" programs, and an entire desktop of space for programs... that just seems like wanting to do something fantastically mundane. I am all for re-inventing the wheel (if they didn't re-invent it a few times, it wouldn't be round, or use material that provide better traction, be light weight, etc), but calling a more easy to use with less to learn experience more of a "de-evolution" than an evolution is a bit short sighted.

eg. Can you drive a car? Standard or Automatic? Does your car have power steering, assisted breaks, or other inventions that make driving easier? Or perhaps you take the bus or train? What ever your answers, were those "de-evolutions" of the horse drawn carriage!? If you think that, then the computer itself was too!

As for the word "Idiocracy"... that's the name of a movie... about the fact that intelligence isn't a factor in the all too often misquoted belief that evolution is merely "survival of the fittest".
