DA:O? Good man, good man. It pretty much defined what modern bioware is, for me (well, this and Mass Effect - but I'd claim that a fair amount of reaction towards DA:O went into how the ME series evolved).

Arkham City.. Hm. It's a great game, aye - finished it not too long ago. But choosing it or Asylum.. that's a very tough call.

RDR I a bit odd though, isn't it? Usually these sort of games have big impacts on the gaming scene, while RDR.. it kinda came and went. I can't quite think of some big influences that it had on games that followed it, and so far rockstar hasn't (or has it, and I'm just oblivious?) indicated they'd revisit/continue that setting.

I think saying that RDR just came and went is a bit harsh. It was widely recognized as being outstanding. I think the only real reason why it didn't have "impact" on the gaming scene was that mechanically it's very similar to GTA, also the fact that only about 50% of people who played it finished it...

Anyways. good picks Simon, I feel the fact that I am yet to play DA:O damages my "gamer cred" a little bit, ought to get on that at some point.

I agree with this except for arkham city, but I would have to make it a list of 5 games and add

1) Bioshock
2) Mass effect 2
3) Oblvion

In my opinion these RPG's have been brilliant pieces of art that i have spent hours, and hours on

Great choices, all games that stood out to me this generation and that I've fond memories of.

Regarding RDR "coming and going", the reason it's talked about less than other games of the generation is because it did come and go. It was annualized like everything else of the generation. Its one of the few games that PC gamers are still hoping will one day come to PC.

Red Dead will always stay with me. The setting, the characters, the world it built around them; it showed me how serious and mature a game can be with it's story and narrative. And visually? My gosh. It was stunning. Maybe not my game of the generation, but certainly up there (it has to be Skyrim for me, but the PC version, because when you mod that mother out you OWN the game, it becomes your world and what a beautiful and limitless world it is).

I played Dragon Age: Origins but I never got into it. It looked great but I discovered that those sort of RPGs are not for me.

I think the Arkham games would still be brilliant if Batman wasn't the lead, but you'd certainly be comparing it to a Batman game. The mechanics, story and puzzles are all brilliant fun, so I think those suggestions are somewhat over the top.
