- The Savage Frontier series and Dragonlance series

- Gothic 2 Gold Edition (and Gothic 1)

- Pillars of Eternity - if it didn't exist, probably Baldur's Gate 1+2

2.Pillars of Eternity

1.Arcanum Steam Works of Magic (Would have been my all time favourite but....it was kinda broken, and the ending was rushed.)

2. Fallout New Vegas

2. Fallout 1/2

1.Dragon Age Origins

1. Knights of the Old Republic 2 (Same as Arcanum)

3.  Skyrim with a bunch of awesome mods (Base game is MEH)

3.  Newerwinter Nights 2 (With patches + at least face lift mod)

3. Tyranny 

3. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 

4. Mass Effect 1&2

4. Fallout 3

4. Dragon Age Inquisition

 

 

Not in this order but these are the best games I've ever played in general. The ones with the number 1. are equally amazing and truly number 1 favourite (But I can't chose...).

In no particular order:

Fallout series (talking about 1,2 and New Vegas, the rest don't bloody count)

Shadowrun games (Dragonfall was probably my favorite of the 3)

And probably Pillars as well.

 

Of course i've played more, but these are the ones that stuck to me the most.

I'm terrible at picking bests, even more so in threes. So many factors.

 

If I had to pick *one*, I think I'd have to go with VTM: Bloodlines. There's this meme about people reinstalling certain games as soon as they're mentioned, and indeed, I've lost count on how many playthroughs I've had for that game. 

 

(Speaking of which, the relative shortage of Bloodlines in this thread is disheartening. :bat:)

So is for Arcanum, another Trojka game which I actually prefer. They could have been one of the best gaming companies out there. A shame they fell apart....

Oh God.

1. Fallout2 - while i probably enjoyed Fallout1 and NV a tad more, the scope and flexibility of F2 is simply amazing. Not the most gripping plot but a game, which gives you space to create a character you want and has systems to react to it.

2. Deus Ex - while for the most part i would put it into [i]Immersive Sim[/b] genre, the clever reactivity of the first 1/4 of the game is a glimpse of what RPGs could have been - a game with wide range of skills, implimented in a more physical way than dice rolls, with game choices being organically made through gameplay. If you think you can do it, you probably can, and game has a reaction planned for it. Unfortunately, this incredible design gets flattened as game goes by and your aliegences are being more thrust upon you.

3. Gothic 2 - another glimpse into what could have been. A very Euro jank RPG - incredibly fresh and clever design often paired with subpar execution and awkward implementation. Still, no one does open world like Gothic1&2.

VTM: Bloodlines is one of those games I am constantly returning to, but because I am told it’s really good and I just can’t see it. Maybe it’s a setting which puts me off so much (not a fan of cheesy vampires). I found quests and characters forgettable, and systems unengaging. I started couple playthoughs and I don’t have any specific memories beside crappy combat, one clever character and sucking blood from random people. Oh, and horrible horrible club music.

Hmmm....

 

1. The Witcher 3

2. Pillars of Eternity (Yeah, took me a while to get into it and fully understand the world, so much lore, but once I did the whole game changed for me)

3. Planescape: Torment

 

Honourable mentions in no specific order:

Suikoden series

Baldur's Gate series

Neverwinter Nights 2

Fallout 1+2

Quite difficult to choose tbh. But if I must pick 3...

 

1. Neverwinter Nights (my childhood favourite, 4 years active in the community, game's lifespan was fairly long due to awesome editor)

2. Mass Effect 2-3

3. Icewind Dale 2

 

I missed out on Planescape: Torment, Morrowind and BG 2 unfortunately.

 

Other RPGs I love in no particular order:

- Skyrim (heavily modded)

- Icewind dale

- Neverwinter Nights 2 (especially the first expansion of it)

- Baldur's Gate

- PoE (obviously)

- Dragon Age 1-3 (yes, even DA 2, despite its atrocities)

- Fallout 3, NV, 4

- Oblivion

- Witcher 2-3 (especially 3)

Best thing is still DMing 8hour sessions D&D for my friends.

If you're asking cRPGs, darn there are so many to choose from. I'll try.

 

1. BG 2

2. Gothic Series (no Risen)

3. Vampire Bloodlines

4. PoE

5. Deus Ex (original)

6. BG 1 (incl SoD)

7. Witcher 3

8. IWD 1+2

9. NWN 2

10. Morrowind

11. Witcher 1

....

 

still trying to get into Shadowrun, but somehow it just doesn't grab my attention. Same goes for Planescape Torment strangely.
