The Best RPG of 2007

RPGFan's Best RPG of 2007 Award
And the winner is...
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 (PS2) - Shin Megami Tensei games have never been about following the trends in the gaming world. RPGs about the occult, demons eating other demons to gain power, and fighting both Satan and God, they're not the types of games that resonate with the general public like Halo or Call of Duty. Persona 3 is only slightly different. While Persona 3 doesn't have the main characters consuming its enemies or fighting Lucifer, Baal, and Thor all in the same dungeon, its combination of life-sim gameplay and dungeon crawling RPG was far more than enough to wow us. While games like Mass Effect and The Witcher were tops on the Xbox 360 and PC, Atlus USA's decision to bring a title that is not only as top-quality as Persona 3, but to give the off-beat title some of the best translation work and voice acting seen in a Japanese RPG to date is simply too impressive to overlook. This one's for Shinji.

Runners-Up: Mass Effect (Xbox 360), The Witcher (PC)
Persona 3
