Having played only 2 games(Risen,DA:O) out of all those in the list,I don't think I'm entitled to a vote.
2009 was a good year for RPGs though.

I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.

I was tempted to vote for Armored Princess but I think Drakensang was the better "RPG". They're both great though.

I've got all sorts of complaints about Drakensang but since playing DA:O, they don't seem nearly as bad in retrospect.

Most looking forward to, Alpha Protocol, no doubt. A bug free Obsidian rpg/shooter with modern guns, it'll be the 2010 game of the year without contest if it lives up to my expectations.

Definitely DA:O for me. Though I think the RPGs of 2010 question should be a multiple choice.

I am tempted to get all of them at some point.

I prefer it stay this "hard" to pick out an RPG to play in the coming years.

Drakensang is surely the rpg game of 2009.

DA:O for me. Basically, mainstream done right. If theyīll do a sequel, they need to infuse the game with more originality and add more complexity to the gameplay but overall itīs a step in a good direction as far as recent mainstream goes. I definitely donīt endorse gameīs marketing and DLC strategies though.

As for my most anticipated 2010 release, voted for Age of Decadence even though I expect it to be released in 2011, eh. Fallout: New Vegas and Venetica were close second. I have a bad feeling about Alpha Protocol.
Anyway, 2011 seems like potentially interesting year for cRPGs.

What you think about most, is what you become.

Yep and I had to select it also for RPG of 2010, since there wasn't any good listed, except Ultima 6 that might not even ready during this year.

Armored Princess is great, but it doesn't seem right to include it on a 2009 list.

I disagree with sacred 2 being on the list since it came out in 2008, not 2009.

It would have come up in our database because the console versions were 2009 and we obviously overlooked the details. I doubt it will attract enough votes to skew the results.

Because the English version was released barely 5 weeks before the year ended, and in digital download only.

U6 will be released in the very near future. Final polishing and bug fixing is WELL underway!!

If God said it, then that settles it!!

Dragon Age: Origins for the win and Fallout: New Vegas for the most anticipated. I really want to see what Obsidian can do with Fallout: New Vegas. The biggest complaint I had with Fallout 3 was the beyond stupid story. If all they do is improve the story then that will easily be one of my favorite games of next year.

Despite all my rage.

This is the internet - you don't have to play ANY of them to vote strenuously!
