Best RPG PC Games 2009

Unfortunately for us RPG PC gamers, 2009 was not as big a year as we hoped. The rise of the new generation consoles over the past few years has meant more FPS and Adventure and much less RPG and good RTS.This is good for some creators like Blizzard who released their massively anticipated second expansion for one of the all time best RPG games for PC, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, late in 2008. They also announced that a Diablo III was in the works which created more frenzy in the RPG world.One of the best RPG PC games of 2009 was actually a $20 downloadable game by Runic Games. The game is named after the town it is set in, Torchlight. It is a fantasy RPG world with the usual style of your hero must save the world from the evil demon dudes. The player is provided with three classes to choose from; Destroyer (hand to hand), Alchemist (magic) or Vanquisher (ranged). Each class has their own strengths and weaknesses and are designed to suit each players style. The game is currently just single palyer offline only, however the producers have hinted of an MMORPG to be released in the future.The second best rpg pc game 2009 was Dragon Age: Origins. Brought out by the guys who made us Mass Effect and Star Wars: The Old Rebiblic, Bioware were already experts in the RPG genre. Once again dark hordes of demon’s are invading the good noble lands and your hero must save the world. Bioware have taken this to the next level though by adding their own twist to the races, culture and overall feel of the game. One of the biggest additions this game brings to RPG is the in depth relationships you can form with your companions. As with the fallout game’s each decision you make could have a hug impact on how the story might pan out for you. This is an awesome game that must be played by fantasy RPG lovers.Other games that came out this year that are worth playing are Risen, The Last Remnent and The Dark Eye: Drakensang. All are Fantasy based games. From something from the sci-fi genre, Fallout 3 Game of the Year edition came out this year. This is a good opportunity to pick up one of the best pc games along with it’s four expansions in one package.Now next year is proving to be crazy in regards to RPG PC game releases and so is 2011. Sequel titles to look forward to are Mass Effect 2, The Witcher 2: Assassin’s Kings, Guild Wars 2 and Fallout: New Vegas (a Fallout MMORPG!). Other titles are Wow’s third expansion Cataclysm and the first Dragon Age: Origins expansion – Return to Ostagar.
