Gamasutra is reminding readers that the 'Quantum Leap' awards nominations, honoring the most innovative titles ever created in gaming's core genres, and now featuring the role-playing game, close on September 28th.
Following the success of the first 'Quantum Leap' award, for the FPS
, Gamasutra readers are invited to participate in this poll, which will proceed genre by genre through the major game types, looking for the perfect blend of innovation and execution in one game title for that genre.
The concept is to vote for the computer
or console RPG
that you think 'brought the genre forward' in the biggest way - whether it be an early game which helped define the genre, or a more recent one which took those core ideas, and changed the role-playing game into a much more complex and rewarding beast.
Thus, the question, which can be answered at the official Question Of The Week page
until September 28th, is: "Which role playing game over the entire history of the genre do you think has made the biggest 'quantum leap', and why?"
As with the previous questions, the best responses will be compiled into an article to be published on the site, and users can either respond publically, with their name and company specifically cited, or anonymize their answers if they wish.
