    The orginal xbox didn't really have alot of RPG's. But the ones it did have kicked ass(Morrowind, KOTOR1&2, Deus Ex). But now the 360 is gonna be loaded with them. We already have Oblivion. And then we will get Mass Effect and Bioshock, both of which look kickass especially Mass Effect. And now I was just reading about a new Lord of the Rings RPG called the White Council. Hopefully they will be releasing another KOTOR as well. It's a great time to be an RPG fan.

    edit: Fable 2 is comming out too. I didn't list it because I thought the first was a complete failure and waste of money.

    I liked Fable. It wasn't what they said it would be but I still found it fun.

    There are a bunch of decent looking Japanese RPGs coming out too like Blue Dragon, Enchanted Arms and Trusty Bell. I need a new RPG bad.

    Nah but I work for Elevation Partners which owns Bioware and Pandemic.
    KOTOR 2 was developed by Obsidian and I think they are doing a third game as well.

    Blue Dragon, and one other, are RPGs coming out from the guy who led the Final Fantasy series till he retired. They ought'a be good.

    and what's up with Dirge of Cerberus? Final Fantasy Third-Person Shooter?!?!?!?
  6. Dues ex was an RPG? I thought it was just an FPS? Hell, I've played Dues ex, I would consider it to be an (albeit story heavy) FPS.

    really... how many games are not considered RPGs?

    only ones that come to mind for me are like GTA3
