"You all say you want to be human, but why would you want to become something so flawed" - Edward Elric - FullMetal Alchemist

This would be much better posted on the PS3 forum since most of this criticism seems directed at Final Fantasy 13. Also strong references to Tales of Xillia, exclusive to PS3.

Lords of Shadow 2 (02/25/2014) will be GoTY 2014 for PS3/360 and best H&S of the generation. Optional QTEs, 20 hours gameplay, epic story, and challenging!

How about a Morrowind HD with elements of Oblivion and Skyrim are added?

That would be the most flawless RPG out there.

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

International your Sig is terrible. The lords of shadows garbage is a disgrace to the castlevania legacy and you should be ashamed to even think that let alone put it as your Sig.

Castlevania on the Nintendo 64 is one of the worst i've ever seen. Lord of shadows looks great and modern.

Symphony of the Night Castlevanias are dead and stale. I've been a fan of the original Castlevanias and Lords of Shadow stays more true that tradition. Grindfest of the Night is long gone and I am glad that Lords of Shadow relies more on skill than on grind 2 win.

The 2d side scrolling castlevanias are perfect and I wish konami would go back.

Random encounters are good.

I think more Exploration is the thing I look for. I cringe at games with randomized dungeons. I want dungeons/worlds to be well thought out and have true exploration opportunities.
