RPG of the Year – 1993

This year will be easy. Why? Because the only tough part about it is not highlighting certain games I know are great, but not the best. I went into this one expecting it to be as tricky as the last two years, then realized I knew exactly which 5 should be at the top within 30 seconds. There are 25 games, but you only need to remember these…

RPG of the Year – 1992

This time around I noticed there are more console titles and the SNES especially is getting a good start. Unfortunately, most of those titles don’t belong on a top 5 list. Sure, games like Mystic Quest and Soul Blazer are fun, but out of all the rest? Ha, no. Not too surprisingly, there are a lot of great PC RPGs this time around, making it pretty hard to call it in some cases. There are 22 titles this time, so let’s hop into it!

Then I realized, if I did that, goddamn that would have been a ridiculously long article. Then again, it was already pretty long, so why not figure out which were the BEST. Yes, I realize this would be in my opinion, but at the very least I can highlight them, give a top 5 for the year, and the runner ups.

Shadowrun vs. Shadowrun vs. Shadowrun

Once again, I’m going to provide you my limited knowledge about something purely from a videogame angle. I may miss a few things, and if I do, definitely feel free to leave feedback calling me a retard. Just sayin’. Anyhow, the Shadowrun series is definitely an interesting one, at least in VG format. It originally started as a pen and paper RPG and that’s really all I know about its backhistory.
