41 Unlike most RTS games this game has some RPG mechanics built in.
The sequel to this game is in a different genre,

40 Jump out of exploding planes, and survive derailing trains, climb the biggest mountains in the world..
Okay maybe the exploding plane was its sequel. Find the hidden city!


38 This RPG features an exiled princess, a thief, a relentless captain, 2 mages and an old king.
This game also features quite the eccentric entertainer. The protagonist can interact with all these characters and their backstories in unique ways.

41 - StarCraft (?)

40 - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

39 - I'm torn between an old-school RPG or something more recent like Dragon Age: Origins.

41- No but you got some help from Machina

40- yes

38- no but it is even more recent than Dragon Age: Origins and shares the name partially.

Let's try again.

34- Kingdom Hearts 2?

33- Tales of Zestiria?

34 is correct, 33 is so very, very close.

Tales of Berseria

#41 - I think you're close, but it's WarCraft III - that's the game that has RPG mechanics and a sequel (WoW) in a different genre.

Yes, One left

#48: Resident Evil Village - PC

Resident Evil Village is the answer to the question "What do you get when you mix RE7 with RE4?". Ethan Winters is back for more punishment (and dear lord, he does get punished!), the game is more wacky than its predecessor but it suits my tastes better. You get a bit of everything, careful and tense exploration, super creepy puzzle section, balls to the wall action sections.

#47: Devil May Cry 5 - PS5

The delightfully over-the-top Devil May Cry formula gets perfected in this entry. Featuring 3 playable characters and a very wide variety of combat options, you'll be killing demons with style until your thumbs fall out. The story and set pieces didn't do much for me but I'm all about that gameplay.

New hint for #33, and repost of hint #34. #35 has since been guessed.

#35: People already live here even though this building is still under construction.

Hint 2: And they work there, shop there, eat there, go into the subway there, go to the doctor there, and more things. SimTower - Guessed by kenjab

#34: You must keep the pope happy or else the inquisitors will come for your family.

Hint 2: Those guys are pretty unfair. Your characters need to have a really high piety to survive if an inquisitor targets him.

#33: Being chased by the antagonist makes it look like this game is in the  survival horror genre, but it's not really.

34

I am thinking something like Medieval Total War, probably 2?



#46: Ori and the Will of the Wisps - PC

Hauntingly beautiful environments, an all new combat system (with some elements borrowed from Hollow Knight) and lengthier campaign Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the perfect sequel so perfect it completely overshadows the original. The game has great movement, a touching story and is a solid Metroidvania all around.

#45: Resident Evil 5 - PS3:

If you find someone to play this game will you, I can guarantee you'll have a blast. Many of the complaints about this game go away when you've got someone competent assisting you instead of a rather stupid AI. It features all the Resident Evil goodness that I love, a very sexy Chris Redfield and my favorite version of Mercenaries.

38 - After a trilogy of events with one certain spiky haired protagonist in a blue suit, here comes the follow up with a new protagonist.

Sonic And Knuckles?



@Farsala

Dragon's Dogma?

Guessed by TruckOSaurus

For a while it looked like the 7th Generation of Video Games for would be all about peripherals for me. Obviously, there was the Wii, built around peripherals and motion control and I played it a lot, but there was also 'Guitar Hero'. With this game you could feel awesome, as if you were the greatest guitar player in the world. I even got a real guitar, a very cool looking one, but I soon found out that playing actual guitar in real life is very hard. Especially on the level of the songs in the game, which is borderline impossible if you asked me.

Once there was a demo unit of Guitar Hero III on my campus. So when I and a couple of my friends happened to walk by, I noticed this and blurted out that I was the number 2000 of the world in this game. This was likely not true, because there's a lot of caveats, like what the particular leaderboard was for, how many people actually played online, and what region it was and whatever but I had glimpsed my name at around the number 2000 in something for a second. Apparently this sudden outburst made an impact, probably because it was so ridiculous, and I still haven't heard the end of it.

I feel so bad about this because I don't like being negative, but for the life of me I don't know why so many people love Guitar Hero III so much. I thought the boss battle gimmick was garbage, the charting was all over the place, the visual effects were outlandish in a way that vastly messed with the rhythm and timing of the notes (so much so that they had to widen the allowance on timing just to counterbalance it), and everything was overcharted as hell. 

It's an exercise in style over substance. a great track list from a popularity aspect but nowhere near as fun to play. I got introduced to way more songs and bands from Guitar HEro 1/2 and the Rock Band series than this. And yes, there's a distinct correlation between developers HArmonix (the team that made GH1, GH2, 80's, and the rock band franchise) and my personal tastes. 

Buh, this is one of those games that I know most people only like because it was the one that had the widest appeal, but there's a dedicated group of music lovers that feel it was definitely a step down. Rock Band did it better.

I think people are way too harsh/critical on this game. I also loved playing it Coop. found it a lot of fun. The world needs more coop games.
