are our favorite topic here at Ten Ton Hammer and we serve up hot and tasty RPGs like the Denny's of MMO sites.
We do love our MMOs but we also have an insatiable craving for a good RPG. Let's make no mistake about it--MMORPGs would not exist without RPGs. And today's RPGs are far more advanced than we could have ever imagined even ten years ago. Technology is booming and there are almost no limits to what a developer can do with it. Add to that the unbridled creativity of some of the top minds of the industry and modern RPGs are nothing short of miraculously immersive.
2011 had a few titles that were very enjoyable. But when it came down to brass tacks we needed to decide on the one game that we could live in. This game needed to be one for which we would be willing to shed our mortal coils, quit our jobs, lock ourselves away for months never to see the light of the tangible world, and be perfectly content in doing so. When we thought about it like that, "which game could I survive happily in for the rest of my life?" our winner became apparent.
