There's a lot of RPG in coming weeks. Etrian Odyssey, Rune Factory, Pokémon. I'll get them all but not necessarily looking forward to them, still have yet to play KH 1.5 HD and lots of other games. I'm more looking forward to announcement.

Pokemon def, and I know it is not an RPG but I am really excited for the HD rerelease of Wind Waker.

Watch Dogs. I'll keep this inside joke running as long as I want.

Other than that, excited to play Guided Fate Paradox, Witch and the Hundred Knights, and Lily Bergamo.

Just Pokemon this year. Wind Waker HD if it counts. I am a bit curious about the new Etrian Odyssey, but I played the original to the end and still barely touched IV so it is probably not worth it.

I think it's a little silly that people term only games with some form of turn-based combat to be an RPG. To be perfectly honest, the idea that a game based in action can't be an RPG is one of the most soul-crushing opinions I've seen in gaming. As someone who is well versed in Pen-And-Paper RPGs which largely predate video games, a game like Legend of Zelda or something with character creation is the purist form of RPG out there. You create your own character and fill them up with your own thoughts and ideas, and even when their appearance is decided for you (as with Link) that sense of "I'll make him be what I want" is still pretty prolific.

Games with spoken lines or fully established personalities are RPGs too, of course, but a very different kind. It's the difference between improv and a script; Both are still acting and filling a role, even if their source methods are fundamentally different. That's why we have terms like TBRPG, ARPG, SRPG, PRPG, etc. It's not quite as eyeroll worthy as the WRPG/JRPG debate, but it's pretty close.

I just wanna fukken have fun.
