It’s been an incredible year for those of us who like our immersive, single-player experiences. We’ve gotten to augment our bodies, slay dragons, clear our names of regicide , died lots and hated the hell out of Kirkwall.
Here are the nominees for best RPG:
The Witcher 2
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Not Dragon Age II
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
And the award goes to:
Winner: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Hardly a surprising choice; Skyrim is just such an incredibly well constructed (albeit buggy as all hell) single player experience beyond compare. It’s undoubtedly the biggest, deepest world available to explore, sucking up your free time and spitting out pure escapism. Unless you’ve been playing on a PS3.
Runner-Up: Deus Ex: Human Revolution
