Kotaku has put online a list of what they consider to be " the biggest role-playing games of E3 2011", which doesn't contain many surprises, but should serve as a good refresher of what we'll be able to see at this year's E3. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Star Wars: The Old Republic are all among the titles mentioned. Here's a snippet:
Mass Effect 3 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360):
BioWare's science fiction triolgy comes to its grand conclusion in Mass Effect 3. When a hyper-advanced machine race from the edge of the universe decides to invade Earth, only Commander Shepard and her allies can possibly hope to save the day. Yes, I said she. With further focused placed on the third-person shooting elements introduced in the second game in the series, this might be the last Mass Effect game I'm comfortable placing in the role-playing category. I'm only kidding; as long as we can still have hot alien sex, it's still an RPG.
