Action RPG of the Year: Console - Demon's Souls
A grand and coveted prize, indeed, Demon's Souls inched ahead of Borderlands. While we at RPGFan contended over which game deserved the prize more, we went with Demon's Souls. Both games are fun, and that's what separates an RPG from a book or movie--it's a game. Some people love the FPS variability of Borderlands, while others find a strange, masochistic joy in getting their heads clobbered (or sliced) in Demon's Souls. However, at the end of the day, the ambiance of Demon's Souls is hard to top. Debate all you like over which is more fun, but when dying repeatedly doesn't burst the bubble that the brilliant graphics and sound create, that tells you that the game's a winner. And, really, nothing tops the traditional, quasi-orgasmic delight of finally beating a boss in a tremendous demonstration of skill--just don't tell our girlfriends/boyfriends.
