Decent 2006-2008 RPG titles?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Any decent relatively older RPG's that anyone can recommend?
I have played Dragon Age, both mass effects, oblivion and fallout.

The reason I'm asking for older versions is because my GPU fan is totally shot on my gaming computer, (most of these older ones are cheaper too )and I have to play 3-5 year old games just to get a decent 40+ FPS. (oblivion runs at 45-50FPS at 1440x900, fallout 3 at 40ish fps)

Diablo 2. I am fairly certain it came out before the date you are specifying, but the graphics on it aren't horrible and I really enjoyed playing many many many hours of this game.

I definitely second the first Witcher. The Enhanced Edition really helped the game out, but it's still kinda rough around the edges. Takes awhile to get into but man can it be addicting.

Also, look into Fable: The Lost Chapters. The first Fable game is, in my opinion, far and away the best. The extended section they tacked on for the PC version is pretty good. I think that should be old enough anyways.

And definitely look into Knights of the Old Republic. That game is exceptionally awesome. The second one isn't nearly as good story-wise, but they added some things to the mechanics that are cool.

Have you played Knights of the Old Republic? It came out a little before your date range I think, but it is one of my favorite games.

+1 for KOTOR, if you havent played it, go do it right now....yes right now lol.

It does have some bugs on the newest H/W but there are plenty of fixes for them, and also widescreen patches and plethora of mods.

Long story short: Great Games: 1&2.

Also, if your looking for a great Console RPG thats fairly recent anough, Check out Tales of Vesperia on the 360, its bloody amazing (i bought my 360 just for that game .. lol).

I also recommend The Witcher and KOTOR (even though this came out in '03). Both are really enjoyable games and some of my favorites.

Also, I know it's an older game than what you asked for, but Morrowind is a great RPG. It's even better with all of the mods. It's unfortunate that your GPU isn't running so well right now.
