What do you mean by that?

This might just be true. I haven't played as many RPGs this past gen as in previous gens, and when I have played RPGs, it's usually been lesser-known or niche RPGs. In fact, all RPG games I can see I've played are: Fallout 3 and New Vegas, Two Worlds (ugh), Operation Darkness, Zoids Assault, Divinity II (Ego Draconis and Dragon Knight Saga), Taes of Vesperia, Dark Souls 1 and 2, and Demon's Souls. My list for the gen before (PS2 and Gamecube) is about 3x as long, if not more, with dozens more I haven't played that interest me more than the onesI didn't play on 360, PS3, or Wii. But part of that might be due to how much simpler the PS2 gen was; no DLC, no system accounts, no achievements, none of that. Just the console, a wired controller, a memory card, and a pocketful of dreams.
