    That is a good question. I would say yes. As they are technically a "game".

    Yes. Console games and MMOs too. Otherwise there won't even be a top 10.

    Its way too early , i need to play skyrim first, i wont judge a game from its trailer, choice of platform really irrelevant, seems people having a lot of fun with dark souls and its ps3/xbox, yet if i believe those fine people its more hardcore demanding and interisting than anything released yet. I am still bargaining with friends to see who could sell me his ps3 for the cheapest so i cant tell.
    Also what about is age of decadence is released for christmas ? Ah!

    So well if you ask for ten titles , then ill answer new vegas dlcs, witcher 2, dark souls (i trust you guys), xenoblade, deus ex HR, skyrim, eschalon, age of decadence, grimoire (who knows...), and as tenth.. err...Sword and sorcery underworld revamp maybe!

    Eh, the River of Time wasn't released in 2011. More like the beginning of 2010, no?

    Ah yeah, my bad. Played it in German, enjoyed it, will add it on my list.

    Well, all the games I mentioned I do consider good. Chantelise alone beats Witcher 2 to a bloody pulp. :smug:

    Thanks! I have updated the rules to include International release dates within 2011.

    Also note read the rules or all of your votes will be disqualified. For example Secret Ninja's votes will not be counted at present.

    Hey, you've introduced the PC only rule. It wasn't initially there. That isn't fair. :(

    Sorry sweetie. But I am sticking to the PC only rule. As that is what the codex stands for.

    Since I corrected mine it should count now. Yes?

    Little unclear on that part. Some of what you say makes it sound like they won't ever count.

    Yep your list is fine and follows the rules.

    If you fail to follow all of the rules I will exclude all your votes. If a rule sounds unclear, let me know and I'll try to clarify it further.

    Add line on PC, or playable on emulator, and it will be fine. (Or better, must be fully playable on PC.)
    (This will allow DS games and Xenoblade.)

    New Vegas Release Date: Oct 19, 2010, sorry Suchy. The DLC's for it are acceptable (if they came out in 2011).

    Some people seem to simply compile their lists of each and every RPG released this year, regardless of quality. What a shitty year indeed.

    And personally I don't have a single title I'd like to vote for. Not one. Haven't played Witcher or Deus Ex, though.

    Can we vote on upcoming RPG releases, like Saint's Row 3 and Skyrim?

    A sequel to Okami? And it has what you would consider RPG elements? Cool, I'll have to look into this.

    As for my own votes, the only RPG released this year that I've played is The Witcher 2, unless the Frayed Knights demo counts (edit: oh, Avadon was this year? I played the demo for that, too). I don't know how I feel about voting for the "best" when I've only played one of the choices, and it's going to be massively overrepresented in the votes anyway - not just because of the Polish Defense Squad, but because the nature of such lists means more well-known games are always overrepresented - so I'll abstain from voting for the moment. Might change when I finally get around to DE:HR or if I give in and try out the New Vegas DLC.
