PlayStation 3 RPG of the Year - Demon's Souls
Some debate that Demon's Souls is the best overall PlayStation 3 game in 2009, but few can disagree that it earned best RPG on the PS3. Okay, so Dragon Age: Origins could certainly steal the prize, but by virtue of empowering PS3 owners in all of its exclusive glory, Demon's Souls deserves first place. Demon's Souls keeps gamers used to the pillowy-soft difficulty of today's design trends humble. As for role-playing gamers, quick saves won't save you from getting your ass handed to you in this game. And the presentation and graphics? Forget about it. Demon's Souls not only challenged the PS3's hardware, but it created an immersive atmosphere through sound and visuals. We were drawn into a world when we hit the power button, and isn't that what RPGs are really all about?
