PSXE Poll Update: Skyrim Is Tops For RPG Lovers

There are several major role-playing games, but only one can top the priority list of a RPG lover.

And according to our recent poll, that game is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Many RPG followers will say Bethesda's franchise is a dream for the hardcore, as it combines a huge open world, in-depth character customization and advancement, and a healthy dose of folklore. You can expect yet another wide-open, freedom-oriented environment, and you might dump 100+ hours into the game if you wish to do absolutely everything. Dark Souls comes out this week but it may not appeal to all RPG fans; it'll be super punishing and it's more linear. As for White Knight Chronicles II, we have plenty of die-hard fans at this site and we enjoyed the game, but unfortunately, not everyone felt the same way; just look at other reviews.

This week, it's RAGE and Dark Souls on Tuesday. But we already covered From Software's new RPG; now it's time to see how you feel about id Software's latest. You've probably seen me drop some encouraging hints over the past week, but is that enough...? You've probably done the research like a good consumer does, and as a gamer, you know what you like. So are you up for RAGE?

It was hard for me to choose on the RPG's and now I can't remember which one it was. There should have been a choice for wanting all three.

As for Rage, I will have it D1. I looks fun as hell and after watching the co-op trailer just recently, which I didn't realize it had, I'm definitely excited to play it.

Skyrim is a definite purchase for me because I enjoy games that have 100 hrs guaranteed!

Ive put over 300 hours in demons souls, beat it like a dozen times and kept it just to invade peoples world and raise hell and i will do it again in dark souls. I will hold off on rage till a price drop i know it will be kick ass but i have too many gaming priorities. Im still playing gears of war 3 online, then ill buy dark souls for my ps3 tues and rape the unliving s**t out of it till the 25th for BF3, then uncharted 3, then skyrim, then MW3. And somewhere between buy also MGS HD collection and forza 4. Thats about over $400 worth of games and over 1000+ hours of gaming. Rage unfortunately is going to have to wait.

Dark Souls all day!! I can understand peoples frustration with the difficulty but you've got to respect From Software embracing the old gameplay mechanic of no hand holding. If you played enough of Demon's Souls, you'd notice there actually was checkpoints in the levels but not in the way were usually use them in todays average game.

On top of that Multiplayer and knowing where to farm is the key to getting through in Demon's Souls. I just wish more folks around here had more patience for Demon's Souls and now Dark Souls too.

I'll be able to play only one b/w Rage and Dark Souls, as i'll be playing Arkham city in the later half of the month. So i'll get one of them later.

not really surprising, ill never understand why elder scrolls has always been so popular!
the last one, oblivion bored the f*ck out of me!
most games i can put up with and force myself to finish, but playing that was worse then torture!
so i dont think ill be getting skyrim, especially since its only 8 days after sonic launches, and only 4 days before ACR and saints row 3.
another good game to save for the drought season, like i did fallout NV.

as for RAGE, well its from id so EVERYONE should be getting it!
theres a reason why every single game id releases gets nominations for GOTYs, and become instant classics!
i mean the masterminds who gave us the genre were so sick of now!
need i say more?
i mean, how much more cred can you get!?
well, thats besides being endorsed from god of course.........
but then john kinda is god, so i guess you cant!

id Software is a great company but let's not leave out the fact that they have not done anything compelling since Quake 3: Arena, which has been about 12 years.

While Rage does look fun, it does look like Borderlands without cell shading and 4 player co op goodness. Yes I have watched the videos.

WHAT!?
doom 3 was f*cking awesome!
have not done much this gen but thats because there been doing there new engine.
im disappointed there not outsourcing it like they use to their old engines.
id love to see MP games running on it, the more alternatives to that crappy outdated overused UE3 the better!
just because its in the same setting as borderlands does not mean it plays like it.
it looks NOTHING like borderlands!
might as well say KZ3 looks like halo!

I've put a little dough aside for UC:3 when it comes out in November...

But other than that, this sad panda is in -no-money-spending- mode. The wife's Mat Leave pay won't be coming in for a number of weeks, and since she isn't working right now because of that Maternity Leave, we're operating on a single income for the next month or so. I could probably afford a couple games, but I also like to work with a small buffer of -just-in-case- money. :)


No worries though... I will get this game eventually.

Totally excited for Skyrim! Can't wait to make my badass assassin chick and carry out Dark Brotherhood assignments of murduring people in their sleep. That in between the occasional dragon slaying. hehe

Rage is soooo pretty. I think I may buy it sooner than later. I love the visual style they chose, and always like post-apocalyptic settings.
