Top 10 rpg games 2011
As we approach 2011, we look back at the action rpg, adventure rpg and pure rpg video games we have missed out on, and look forward to the top 10 rpg games of 2011. The last few months of 2010 have seen games like Fable 3, Arcania Gothic 4 and Divinity 2: Ego Draconis hit the market. It may be too expensive to buy all these rpg games, without looking forward initially and saving up a bit of money. Hence we now look forward to the top 10 games of 2011, in hope we can save at least $100 per month to buy each of these rpg games as they come out. Save up especially for Star Wars the Old Republic, and other games as more news about the games hit the market in 2011.

No 1 - Venetica
In no chronological order or order of greatness or entertainment value, we list the first game as Venetica. Venetica is one of the rpg games of 2011. It is based on a female character called Scarlett, daughter of the leader of a secret society in Venice who was gone rogue and defied the philosophies of the society. This leader has become an undead, and aim to unleash evil into the city of Venice. Scarlett must stop him. Skills include the ability to use the powers of the Twilight world - the realms between the living and the dead, and eventually wield the power of death itself. Venice is the setting and includes allies and traitors hidden in the streets and alleys of Venice. Here is a video preview of the game. The release date of Venetica is anticipated to be 24 January 2011.
No 2 - Diablo 3
Year after year, we look to see if diablo 3 will be released. Is 2011 finally the year that diablo 3 will be released, now that starcraft 2 has been released? Diablo 3 is set 10 years after the events of diablo 2, where the Prime Evils Diablo, Mephisto and Baal were defeated. A fiery cataclysm falls from the sky onto the ground where Diablo arose, awakening ancient evils. Heroes must rise to fight these "new" ancient evils.
No 3 - 2 worlds 2
Whereas diablo 3 is household name amongst video and pc gamers, 2 worlds 2 may not sound as familiar except to hardcore rpg gamers, who must experience each and every kind of sci fi and medieval rpg experience. Remember 2 worlds? Probably not. Anyway, 2 worlds 2 is still set in the world of Antaloor, where the hero from 2 worlds tried to save his sister Kyra. Unfortunately,Kyra is saved but escapes under the influence of a magical spell. The hero is bound at the bottom of a dungeon, that is, until the orcs come in and surprisingly rescues the hero. Under the instructions of Prophet Cassara, the orcs seem to turn over a new leaf, or have they? The hero must accumulate new spells, weapons, and skills (under a new system) and take on the evil archmage Gandohar and save his sister....... again. New 2 world 2 monsters and new locations will further entice the rpg video gamer to dive into the 2 worlds 2 again. Here the magic of 2 worlds 2 - namely fire, water, air and necromancy is showcased. When is the release date for 2 worlds 2?
