Best RPG of 2013

If stats and min-maxing cause your heart to twitter, then you are an RPG gamer. Whether you are on an epic quest to save the world or just finish laundry, you will modify your stats to get it done the best way possible. Another of those core gaming genres that we all remember fondly. Our nominations for Best RPG of 2013 are:

  • Ni no Kuni
  • Pokémon X / Y
  • Final Fantasy XIV
  • Fire Emblem: Awakening

I choose you, Pokémon X / Y (had to, couldn't help it). This is an RPG 100%, the level of your team and abilities dictating how far you can go. Pokémon added enough new to bring back people that had not played for years, and while feeling like a fresh game, it was plenty familiar and greatly enjoyed.
