World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Features for PC

Platform: PC Check Price

Welcome to a special series of VideoGamer.com's Top 10, where we bring you the essential genre by genre video game buyers' guide for Christmas and New Year. It'll run every Thursday from now until the end of the 2007/2008 holiday break, so, whether you're looking for some family video game ideas to get you through those boring Christmas get-togethers or some top sports games to spend that holiday cash on, look no further than VideoGamer.com. In the fifth of the series, we look at the Top 10 Role Playing Games. And don't forget, if you need more info on any of these titles, just click on it for a full review.

Please note: This special series of VideoGamer.com's Top 10 is a buyer's guide for Christmas 2007 and New Year 2008, and as such only includes modern titles available for the currently supported platforms. It is not a best of all time list.

10. Kingdom Hearts II - PS2/PS3.

One for those PS2 owners out there (and owners of PS3s with backwards compatibility!), Kingdom Hearts II, from Japanese developer Square Enix, is a super-cute role-playing game which fuses all that's great about Disney with all that's great about role-playing. You'll visit a number of lands from Disney movies, including themed areas from Pirates of the Caribbean, Tron, Mulan and Aladdin. You should be able to pick this one up for about £15, making it a great stocking-filler for any role-playing fan.

9. Titan Quest - PC.

Sure, this one's over a year old, but it's still a super RPG that PC-owning RPG fans are sure to get a kick out of. What's great about Titan Quest is that it can be played almost entirely with the mouse, giving it a certain charm. It's got everything you'd expect from an RPG - hordes of mythical creatures and impressive productions values. For those of you twiddling your thumbs waiting for Blizzard to pump out a sequel to Diablo, you could do a lot worse than Titan Quest. And you can pick this up with its expansion, Immortal Throne, for under a tenner.

Yet your the one saying "I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE YOU!" yet i dont complain, becuase i am not bothered about people who choose to express their views in a negative way, like yourself.

"ignorant, brainless fool like yourself". Sure i accept that, but only as your opinion. Otherwise if i was truly like that i wouldn't be member of the month, as i literally always back my threads/posts/comments etc with evidence.

And i dont really get offended by people i dont know on forums. So your words are falling on deaf ears. Pretty much useless.

I do usually 'write normal', I just don't see the purpose in worrying about how I communicate to an ignorant, brainless fool like yourself.

Also, shouldn't 'Write normal' be 'Write normally'?



Funny, I post a fact to back up my argument, and you have nothing useful to say, so you complain about the gaps within my post....

Okay, not that much lol but still....




Persona 3 is good, however it got little-to-no advertising outside of Japan, that's why it didn't sell a lot.







Wikipedia isn't reliable? Maybe so, but.....





*looks on the back of Persona 3's case (it was in a stack of games..... it was above Dragon Quest 8, and below FF8, FF7, and Persona 4..... oh cool, I just saw V For Vendetta under my bed)*



'The Best RPG of 2007*'

'*GameSpot Best of 2007 Awards'

Thats a point you just helped me prove with Persona 3 and yes i have heard of it and 8.8 is a good score for a game especially when they are competing against hundreds of other RPG's or whatever.

You do know that wikipedia isnt a reliable source of information, i sincerely hope you dont use it for your class work?! xD Even if it is correct, be sure if its true first.

Just saw this on wikipedia...

GameSpot named Persona 3 the best RPG of 2007. Gamespy named it the 2007 PS2 RPG Game of the Year and placed it second in the 2007 PS2 Top 10 Games of the Year. RPGFan gave Persona 3 the RPGFan's Best RPG of 2007 Award.

Some guy died while playing WoW and IGN gave it an 8.8.

You've never heard of Persona 3, have you? Yet it's rated highly and wins GoTY awards, while the most popular game in the world is just "hm...it's better than other MMO's I guess...8.8".

Oh good lord. As much as I despise taking sides with Steg, your argument that "you cannot have a good game and it not be successful or popular" is just straight up WRONG. It's so incredibly and immeasurably WRONG that I don't know where to start. Screw opinions and subjectivity, a blanket statement claiming that popularity is directly proportional to quality is just straight up stupid.
