Recommend me an RPG

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Alright OCN, I've been playing through a lot of shooters latley, just beat STALKER: SoC and about to beat Dead Space 2, loved both, great games. I'm also playing the **** out of Bad Company 2....

That is a lot of shooters, I've always been a shooter/RPG guy, but playing three shooters in a row has kind of got that itch going for some good customization and stuff.

I bought up Oblivion and Torchlight on the steam sale. I don't really feel like playing Oblivion again right now, played through 4 times on my 360 when it first came out, and Torchlight isn't really pulling me in, I think I'm done with the top-down style after sinking so many hours into D2.

I might even do some classic gaming, so recomend that stuff. I pulled out my old SNES the other night and was playing some LttP, got me wanting to play that or Chrono Trigger or FFIII, all of which I own on cartridge.

IDK though, make me some recommendations and lets see what peaks my interest. If it helps my favorite RPGs of all time are Morrowind, KOTOR, and Chrono Trigger in no particular order.

Here is my steam library to give you an idea of what I like, the only games missing on there are TW1 and TW2, on gog, though one day I will move them to Steam since I like all my games in one spot and CD Project deserves more of my money.



I'm gonna go to the gym, but I'll be back later to check on replies and chime in.

The first thing that comes to mind is Fallout 3 if you havent played it. Its absolutely fantastic. You use guns and whatnot so you could call it a shotter, but its definitely a rpg with all the customization and everything you would expect.

Seeing as how you're a fan of classic SNES era RPGs, I highly recommend you play Tales of Game's Presents Chef Boyardee's Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, Chapter 1 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa. It was designed to be exactly like the old school Final Fantasy games and the like.

It's hilarious and immensely entertaining. It's also free.

Here's a trailer and a download link.

I have played through Fallout 3 before, borrowed it from a friend and played it on the 360. Pretty fun stuff.
Don't really feel the need to play through that one again.

Wait it gets better.

At the first boss, you meet the ghost of Lebron James and fight The B-Ball Monster.


Things only get better.

If you're looking for an MMORPG, I suggest Age of Conan, it is now free to play, absolutely gorgeous graphics, intense gameplay, and just recently introduced a vanity wardrobe, where you can equip any item of armour you wish for aesthetic purposes.

There's also the fact it's almost 100% realtime too, however, skills actually require combo's.

Another one of my favourites is The Witcher 2, unfortunately I had the displeasure of having to download it, rather than buy it. It hasn't affected the game in any way yet. But the graphics again, are stunning, however, there isn't much open world, but there is certainly a lot of free roam.

You don't need to play the first one to play this one either, the sword play is fantastic, all of the skills make sense, and work really well. The landscape design is unbelievable, you really do get immersed.

And finally can I suggest Dark Messiah Might and Magic (only £5 on steam or less). This is a linear RPG, with a fair amount of class customisation (I usually cheat so I am everything, trust me, it is a lot, and I mean A LOT of fun to cheat in this game). However, I do suggest completing it first, then you will see how much of a badass you really can be.

The story in this game is a little weak unless you're familiar with the Might and Magic series, and you do notice subtle story elements that link in with the older games. The games combat mechanics are beyond amazing for it's time period. I still play it now! There's nothing to rival this game, it's in a genre of it's own.

I'm not going to tell you how to google, just go check these games out, you won't be disappointed.

Plus, if you're into the whole persistent world, player driven economy and real time combat, check Mortal Online out, great visuals, however lacking in immersion, makes up for it with PvP, but make sure you research a PvP spec, or you'll get stuck being chased down by people who know what makes a good PvP character.

I have pretty much played every single big RPG title, and I can tell you, these are my select few games, that I cannot praise enough. Other games to look out for:

Arcania: Gothic 4
Two Worlds I and II (Mainly II, as the original is piss poor)
Eye: Divine Cybermancy

Dragon Age: Origins was awesome. Many good hours of gaming to be had playing that title.
