What game are you most grateful for this year?
« on: November 24, 2011, 02:37:32 PM »
In honor of thanksgiving (for those who are of the US and celebrate it) what RPG (or game) are you most grateful for this year??....

My vote goes to Xenoblade.....

NOTE: If your not of the US play along anyways.... there is no bad day to be gratuitous :)
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

I think i'm most thankful for the Assassin's Creed series. I started playing them this year, and have played through AC:II, Brotherhood, and now currently splitting time on Revelations and Skyrim. It has rekindled a little love I've always had with Mediterranean culture, and let's face it, Ezio is pretty awesome.

Is this a goty thread with a different name?

Anyway, though the best game of the year for me was The Witcher 2, I guess I'm thankful for xenoblade because I had given up on playing a jrpg that could rival the best ever on current gen consoles.
Currently playing: Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, Team ICO Collection, Atelier Totori, Child of eden.

Xenoblade... Xenoblade... Xenoblade! (in 3-part harmony) I'm so grateful I didn't let the continental divide dissuade me from doing horrible things to my Wii so I could play this game. FUCK NINTENDO for not releasing it here. Fuck 'em home.

But I also played Nier this year, as did many others among us. Way to depress the ever-living shit out of us with grand style!

I have yet to get to get ACII: Revelations, due to Zelda, but that'll be my next purchase... well, after going back and beating the crap out of Xenoblade. Fuck you Nintendo, I kill you in my sleep! I'm a sucker for AssCreed. Ezio's the hottest man ever... and that's coming from a certifiably heterosexual male-man.

Does this have to be games made and released in 2011 or games we played in 2011? I'm thankful for Radiant Historia, Portal 2, Nier, Persona 4, and Fallout 3 for reminding me why I love vodeo games.

For some reason it doesn't feel right to do this about VIDEO GAMES, but I'll roll with it.

Is this a goty thread with a different name?

I'd rather take a different angle myself, since my favorite game may not be the one I'm most GRATEFUL for. So with that said; The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky. Reminiscent of the best of 32-bit RPGs, and offers some hope really great JRPGs can be localized and brought to the US despite the PSP/DS being in a downturn and NoA being insane and not bringing Xenoblade here (or at least taking their sweet time and being entirely too quiet). I might have my hopes shot down anyway though depending on whether the other games in the series come out, but at worst I got something as good as I remember JRPGs being.

I'm with Jubby on this one. If we simply say what game I played "spoke" to me the most I'd say Nier and Lunar: Silver Star Harmony, now games released this year, that's a different question all together, which for the moment I will dodge, lol

Definitely Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky.  I am thankful that Xseed took the trouble to localize such a wonderful yet difficult to translate and commercially questionable title.  I pray that we see the rest of the games in the series in some form or another...

The only new games I recall playing this year were, uh, Radiant Historia and Okamiden. And I only liked one of those.

So I guess Radant Hisora?

I'm grateful for Catherine, Skyrim, Dark Souls and KOFXIII. Oh, and Radiant Historia. I loved that game. Too many good games this year!

Trails in the Sky re-established a hope for localizations, and a proper story CAN be found in modern JRPGs.

Radiant Historia made me realize stories in JRPG don't have to be made of cheese.

Assassin's Creed helped me blow of end-semester stress...by making mass-murder fun.
