1.Mass Effect 2 - duh.

I'm only 10 hours into Neir, but I can see it ranking high. Good game so far.
Only played about 4 hours of FF XIII. I actually liked what I played. Not sure if I'll get back to it, though.
Haven't played any other rpgs this year. Too many good games in other genres.

Before the current generation I was very much a rpg player and not much else. Ever since I got a 360, then a PS3, I play mostly non-rpgs. Mostly because so few GOOD rpgs are released anymore. I love a good mix of action with my rpg, and games like ME give me that. I'm really no longer interested in slower-paced, super long, turn-based games.
Unfortunately, I am not very good at action-oriented games, so I have to play them on easy to enjoy them.
Also, like Kup, I focus on one game at a time. This way I actually beat them, and feel good about myself. Playing all sorts of games at once, and never finishing anything, is ridiculously unsatisfying.

OK, so I'm really digging this game now. I'm used to the battles and the graphics so that's a moot point now.
I'm really intrigued as to where this whole father/daughter dynamic is going to go. I have some ideas, and most are not uplifting.
Hell, I very well might keep going(meaning after beating it once) with this thing. I'm getting Uncharted 2 next week, but have zero interest in it right now.
When do I get to do something with all these seeds I have?

I'd like to decide how good it is on my own, so I'll still be getting it.
Statements like this are silly.
So do you buy every game that your interested in just to see if it's good? That would be ridiculous. At some point, reviews and general comments by others who have played the game HAVE to come into play.
If a game I am interested in is getting universally awful or mediocre reviews , I'm going to be bummed, but I'll move on. No way am I buying it just to decide on my own.
Now, if renting is a possibility, then that would make sense.

Nier - I'm starting to understand why this game seems to have the following it does.
Now that I've gotten used to everything, I am enjoying it quite a bit. All those silly little side quests are addicting.
The soundtrack is so great. I look forward to visiting new areas just to hear what the music will sound like.
I'm wondering when I get to do something with all these seeds I've got. I want to grow some pumpkins!
Plus, I discovered last night that there is a weapon upgrade system in this game. I played through the Junk Heap scenario. Too bad the stupid game automatically upgraded the wrong weapon.
Tons of stuff to do. I'm hooked.

Kick ass about ME3. Sadly, these are the only games I get genuinely excited about anymore.
I still need to get some of the DLC for ME2.
They NEED to find a new way to do the whole mineral finding thing. Personally, I actually liked the stupid Mako more than the planet scanning of 2.
They need to just integrate it into the regular areas, and not have it be a separate thing.

I'm a bit pickier than some of you, but it's still looking pretty solid for 2011.
The biggies for me are:
ME3
DA2
Dead Space 2
The Last Guardian
Uncharted 3

Plus, there will always be those games that you didn't know or expect to be great.
Heck, I'm still trying to play catch up on the great games of 2009 and 10.
2063  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: JRPGs - Deep, Medium, or "Lite" stories? on: December 12, 2010, 12:11:55 PM
I have almost always preferred "dark" and more serious stories with a little bit of lightheartedness thrown in to break up the tension. Too bad this type is pretty much non-existent nowadays.
I think of the lunar games as an example. Great writing, humor, world ending scenario, etc.
The only games I've played in the past couple years that count are not jrpgs. The ME games, and maybe Dragon Age.
Abyss was good, but still had a lot of cheese.
Nier feels like it may qualify.
2064  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: December 12, 2010, 12:03:23 PM
Some of us barely have time for a first play through, let alone a second. I guarantee you, no matter how much I like it, a second play through will not happen. A game should be great the first time around.
I've only played for a few hours myself. Graphics are weak, music is great(as expected), battle system is clunky, and the story is intriguing. We'll see.

Yeah, she was pretty good in Adventureland. Heck, I find her pretty attractive, actually. But truth be told, I've always preferred the dark hair/pale skin look.

My wife is getting me 2 for Christmas. I enjoyed the first one, but definitely had a few issues with it. My excitement for 3 will depend upon my experience with 2.
2067  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: December 09, 2010, 10:19:15 AM
I get to watch the new twilight movie tomorrow.

JOY
I watched it on Saturday with my wife, who redboxed it because she knows I won't put Twilight movies in my queue.
It's actually not as bad as the first two. Still not very good, but at least this one has a sense of humor about itself.
I've heard some interesting things about the last book, so I'm actually kinda looking forward to seeing if they can somehow make it NOT ridiculous.

Beat NieR. The further in the more rapid the gut punches got.

Is this a good or a bad thing?
2069  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: December 07, 2010, 09:34:45 AM
Nier showed up yesterday, so I started playing that. Man, after playing Castlevania, Nier is one UGLY game. OK, the graphics aren't THAT bad, but they are very PS2ish looking.
This starts out very generic jrpg. Minus the father/daughter stuff. Actually, it's more like the beginning of a Zelda game. Killed some sheep for a shopkeeper. Mmm, mutton!
We'll see where this goes...
2070  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider! on: December 07, 2010, 09:07:00 AM
This actually has peaked my interest. I remember playing through the first one and a little bit of the second. Haven't played a TR game since then. I like the new look of Lara, and the overall feel. We'll see.
