Your list is not full.
Nuclear Union and Wasteland 2 are both set for 2013.
RPGs of 2012:
- Mass Effect 3
- Risen 2
- Diablo 3 (probably shouldn't count)
- Of Orcs And Men
- Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Skyrim was released very late in 2011 if I recall correctly, so most were probably playing that in early 2012.

Like I said tho, I am aware that several projects are targeting Q4 2013 (DA3, Wasteland 2 etc), but I would be very surprised if they don't get pushed to Q1 2014. It's rare that an RPG does not get pushed back at least once.

Hmm, I was unaware of Original Sin being released in Q1. I suppose that could turn out interesting. Certainly worth putting on the list!

Edit: One thing that troubles me is the complete lack of upcoming open world RPGs (games like Gothic/Risen, Elder Scrolls and Two Worlds). As far as I know, there's not even an announced one yet, though I assume (hope) both Bethesda and PB are working on one each in secret.
