IGN cry over spilt RPGs

IGN have taken a look at the five best and the five worst RPGs released recently for the PC (they also did Xbox and other consoles as well but meh, find those yourself). Have some selective quoting so you know where this one goes:

Rather than outline a list of the greatest RPGs ever, we've decided to take a look back at the best and worst the genre has had to offer over the last five years.
[...]
Bethesda Softworks' epic Elder Scrolls roleplaying series...
[...]
Peter Molyneux made a lot of promises about his ambitious roleplaying game and, fortunately for us, he delivered on most of them.
[...]
As great as Oblivion was, it was only a dress rehearsal for Fallout 3.
[...]
BioWare's take on the science fiction roleplaying game may have had some rough spots, but the overall experience was one of the most captivating and original experiences of the year.​
That's the good. Now here's the bad:

Here's a real piece of crap. Roleplaying games are defined by their characters and their story and Call for Heroes has neither.
[...]
Grind a few levels, warp back to town and sell your loot. Now repeat that formula about a thousand times and you'll have a good idea of what it's like to play The Chosen: Well of Souls.
[...]
Dungeon Lords: Is it fun? No. Is it polished? No. Is it even finished? No.
[...]
As enjoyable as the series has been thus far, Piranha Bytes' Gothic III was a huge letdown.​
Are they doin it rite or doin it rong? You decide!
