Evil Leliana was cool.
Good Leliana was crazy... and not the good crazy.

I hold to 1998 as my favorite year for games by the way.

A strong contender. Here's what I have on 1998. I'll update as a deepen my search on some lost gems.

RPG
Baldur's Gate
Fallout 2
Final Fantasy Tactics
Parasite Eve

Non-RPG
Half Life
Metal Gear Solide
Starcraft
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Unreal

Metal Gear Solid? Yup, 1998 gets my vote. This year might be the best for RPGs, though.

On the RPG front there's also Pokemon, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Shining Force III, Xenogears, and Magic Knight Rayearth, even if some of those came out a year or more earlier in Japan. Outside of RPGs there was also Resident Evil 2, Tenchu, Mega Man Legends, and some games that are more debatable like Banjo-Kazooie and Spyro. At the very least it was THE best year for the 32-bit generation.

I remember playing that on the SNES emulator (since it wasn't coming here unless hell froze and heaven burned) - the thing I liked about it was playing it at 2x speed - the boss theme sounded wicked then (double kick drum and everything).

This is practically demanding an avatar quote.

I remember playing that on the SNES emulator (since it wasn't coming here unless hell froze and heaven burned) - the thing I liked about it was playing it at 2x speed - the boss theme sounded wicked then (double kick drum and everything). 

It IS a very different game, being developed by Sega themselves. It was an enjoyable action RPG of the kind most common during the 8-bit and 16-bit generations, and the fact those aren't quite as common now means it may well be worth playing if you can land a copy conveniently enough. I wouldn't actively hunt it down though.

Myabe it's for the best I emulated it (and it wasn't translated).  Kinda the case with ASH on the DS.... brrrr, that left a weird taste in my mouth.

Actually, in my emulating escapade (again, titles that didn't have a chance getting here) - the amount of weird shitty and bizarre JRPGs released during the SNES were both cheap and uninspiring.  I can easily say we got the best of what was worth it (except Terranigma, to the US anyways).  J-only exceptions I'd say is Star Ocean 1 and Tales of Phantasia (and were nevertheless brought here by a remake...albeit shitty ones).

1998 was boss, Panzer dragoon saga, Xenogears and MGS are enough to make it my favorite year. This year is looking pretty good though, if the last guardian gets a 2011 release date it might top 1998 in my book.
Currently playing: Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, Team ICO Collection, Atelier Totori, Child of eden.

For sure, I'm getting Tales of Xillia, Disgaea 4, and Tactics Ogre this year. I have such a huge backlog that I'm only gonna buy games I really, really want.

Right now, the only thing that I (and many people) want is a release date for Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Every other big-budget title that I'm interested is going to be released by the end of this year or the next one, and with that time, I'll have the opportunity to catch up with some of these DLC and PSN games that I've been missing out.

Looking at 2011, it's been a long while since there were so many games I want packed in 365 days. Looking at the incoming big/revolutionary titles, we are getting (I probably forgot some, so say and I'll edit the list) it makes me wonder if there was ever a better year to be a gamer.

Non-RPG:
Katawa Shoujo

Is that actually coming out this year?  I thought it was in eternal limbo or something.
