I don't entirely agree on TW2, but you've got a point with TW3. That said, I suspect that game benefits from having a mostly preset character with predetermined love interests; Geralt already has a…

1. Baldur's Gate 3: Really enjoyed both D:OS games and everything I've seen thus far looks promising. Early Access is not for me, but I look forward to the final release.

I intentionally avoid that sort of stuff when I read fantasy, which is why I find using the word "fantasy" to refer to such a narrow part of the genre befuddling. Words mean things. There's no sense…

Sorry, but I've heard this a few times and I get whiplash every time. Jade Empire is a fantasy game.

As for the streamlining part, it's arguably Bioware's first step away from more traditional…

The prospect of a game that would be designed as turn-based from the ground up is probably what's most exciting about this prospect for me.

I really, really wanted to like PoE1 back when I played, but despite many attempts I couldn't muster any interest in the aggressively boring writing. Sometimes, when in an RPG lull, I feel tempted to…

I was thinking this year looked rather disappointing, but then I realized that they had inexplicably missed those four games. I am only particularly interested in one of them, but they'd all make for…

I'd rather more creative fantasy settings--Historical fantasy! Weird fiction! Mythology & fairy tales! Science fantasy! Dying Earth! Fantasy of manners or mythpunk! Even magical realism! Or urban…

I wish there were more RPGs like Darklands: well researched historical settings with period-appropriate fantasy elements.

I am so unenthused by the cyberpunk theme. But I haven't played an RPG this year and it's not like I have any particularly compelling alternative. But Keanu Reeves can't act. But I'd probably enjoy…

It's supposed to release next year. If you go to the game's website, there's a roadmap with the remaining features, if you want to get an idea of how much they've got left.

I guess a better way to put it is that D&D's combat focus severely limits the type of characters you can make and the sort of stories you can tell, through the game mechanics, at least. You can do…

I suppose one might say that for those who want a crunchy wargame 5E is too simple, while for those more into the narrative side of RPGs it is still too combat-oriented. And though there is some…

I disagree with a lot of what they said and any "best game" declaration will inevitably come across as hyperbolic, but isn't everyone biased towards their own preferences?

I think I've made it clear that unlike everyone and their mother I'm not impressed by what they've shown thus far, but clearly Blade Runner's never been the vibe they're aiming for. I like both Blade…

There hasn't been a AAA fantasy WRPG since Wild Hunt in 2015. There's some upcoming ones (BG3, Avowed, Fable, Dragon Age 4) but they're a ways off.

And sure, it'd be nice to have more creative…

Apparently, crunch at CDPR is extreme (https://askagamedev.tumblr.com/tagged/CD-Projekt-RED) even by industry standards.

I also would question how "well-run" they are when they've had a…
