Craving the RPG - Page 3

post #21 of 38
Daggerfall is kinda cool, definitely the best TES game, but not without its flaws. It's extremely glitchy and full of bugs, it has severe balance issues (much like Morrowind and Oblivion), but yeah, it's kinda cool. There's also an engine port in development, might wanna check it out:

Wow Daggerfall source?

That game was mindblowing when it came out, albeit a bit buggy. Most of what you describe in character control really belongs to oldschool RPGs from my perspective, however none of them have randomly generated worlds like Daggerfall does.

You might be better off modding huge games like Oblivion to your liking. If you want a non randomly generated, but huge world and don't mind playing an old game that is in depth with character development (make spreadsheets, read the manual, plan your leveling or fail to develop, in depth and extensive combat) - I can point you to a 1992 DOS game that probably spanks any other RPG in terms of authenticity to oldschool RPG themes.

Mods FTW.

Yep, it started two years ago http://daggerxl.wordpress.com/2009/0...elopment-post/, I suspect it will be somewhat playable in 6-8 months or so and ready in a year and a half or two. That's pretty soon, all things considered, not to mention that no other Daggerfall "port" got anywhere this close in terms of development. And it's not just Daggerfall we're talking about here! Good ol' Dark Forces, Blood and Outlaws ports are developed by the same guy as well.

Are they going to update textures and whatnot or just make it playable?

If I were you I would just start picking up some MMORPG games 'till I found one I liked.
You aren't going to find what you are looking for in any single player RPG.
Maybe and that a huge Maybe you would enjoy the .//Hack series on PS2.

EDIT: Though options are limited if you have a PSP or Wii you could try Monster Hunter... I absolutly love Monster Hunter games no story at all just driven by armor and weapon crafting and real time fights of big bad monsters.
Since the fall of Final Fantasy games after FF-X, Monster Hunter is my favorite series but Japan gets them all first.

If you haven't played Fable III I'd suggest giving that a shot. I liked it a lot more than Fable II but not quite as much as Fable I. It doesn't really fit your description, but I found it to be quite a fun game.

It's being developed by one guy and, well, it should be fully moddable, at least that's what being promised. You can check out the forum if you like, there are already talks of mods and texture and music update. It's nothing big, but if nothing goes wrong with the development, it will definitely get gain some attention in the future.

Eh, I'd rather not have to run things through emulators and such. I mean, I will if I HAVE to, but if I can avoid it, I would.

Again, I don't want some scripted thing. I'd much rather have something that doesn't rely on a story and instead plops me in a world. Also, no more mods please...
