It's pretty obvious that the games play fast and loose with the age of the characters. Dandelion is in his fourties in the books IIRC. At the same time Adda and Radovid are minors.

Did you complain about lightsabers in KotoR as well? ;)

The risk is very real.

I'd expect people to buy one game upon release, and then buy the other once they finished game number one, possibly even waiting for a price drop (which comes sooner…

Space 1889. The premise is interesting, but by the time I got to play it the game was too dated to be playable.

Gothic 2 is still bloody excellent (it'd probably tie for spot 11 with Baldurs Gate 2), just not quite in my top ten as far as enjoyment goes.

Largely balancing of NotR made the late game a chore,…

This. This was also one reason that I enjoyed the Game of Thrones RPG (and old Kotor 2). I'm approaching 40 and it is nice to occasionally play an adult in a game.

2013 was a dull year. I voted XCOM and Conquistador, games which I'd consider having RPG elements at most.

2014 is promising though. The Witcher 3 was an obvious choice, but after that it was hard…
