Wii RPG of the Year - Shiren the Wanderer
The "Rogue-like" genre doesn't get a lot of attention around RPGFan, but there are a few shining examples that come across our desks each year. Shiren the Wanderer, technically the third game in the series from Chunsoft, came to America as a Wii exclusive thanks to Atlus. This beautiful, robust RPG had a strong plot, an interesting cast of characters, a unique party system, and varying difficulty levels so that people new to this oft-punishing sort of game can make mistakes without turning emo in an instant of unexpected death. Though there was close competition for this particular award (see runner-up), Shiren eked out a victory, which is also something the titular character has a habit of doing.
