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 :)

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.

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?

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.
