RPGs weren't ever a prominent genre.
Just looking at two periods that don't even include the most popular RPGs.
1998-2002: Planescape: Torment, Fallout 2, Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, Final Fantasy 8-11, Deus Ex, Baldur's Gate 2, Diablo 2, Icewind Dale, Anachronox, Gothic 2, Arcanum, System Shock 2, and Arx Fatalis.
2008-2012: Skyrim, New Vegas, Dark Souls, Diablo 3, Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect 2/3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Torchlight 2, Bastion, Witcher 2.
That's not mentioning Pokemon, Ultima, World of Warcraft.
What do other game genres look like? Only FPS and platformers have been more prominent, and not all the time.
