RPGs worth playing


Humodour

Recommended Posts

In the past year or so I've been pretty starved of good hefty RPGs to play. I've done the typical ones to death (IE games, FO series, NWN, KoTOR), however I'm quite sure I've missed one or two great games over the past 7 years or so.

 

So what I am looking for is a list of the not so well known RPGs which you've personally played and enjoyed in the last 7 years. If I can find just one or two new great games to play from this thread, it will be worth while. :(

The Quest for Glory series' last game, QfG5: Dragonfire, just scrapes into your time frame with a 1998 release. The five games taken together are an epic RPG, and terrific fun to play, though the graphics are outdated now.

I recently played Baten Kaitos on the Gamecube, which was suprisingly good. Excellent soundtrack is also a plus.

Anachronox...has some of the most memorable charcters, a very good story (set in cyberpunk-sifi), is extremly funny, and has the most entertaining cut-scenes ever (a machinima-film was made out of them, which won some awards at the machinima film festival 2002)

 

gameplay-wise it's more a japanese-rpg in the way combat and charcter-building works but I never saw this as a problem

 

but there are some:

you have to patch it to enjoy it (with the latest unofficial-patch)

you have to find it to buy it to play it

some of the gameplay-mechanics will peeve you (but that's nothing in comparison with the joy you will have)

 

and now some direct-linky-right-click-and-download-propaganda

the trailer of trailers...when you don't like this you are probably a bad person

this is a gameplay-trailer

this one will show you the world (and parts of the world that got cut through, what is part of the never ending struggle between a publishers needs and and developers ideas)

Arcanum is great. And awful too in some ways.

Arcanum. I like how it mixes fantasy role playing with the coming of the industrial age.

First of all, the three greatest rpgs ever made: torment, fallout, fallout 2.

 

Then you could try the baldurs gate and icewind dale series.

 

If you want action rpgs, then nox, revenant, diablo and diablo 2 are all great.

 

Other than that you can try septerra core.

Mus?, those games that you linked to on that page, are they buyable, or is that right there all they consist of, as in they are free games? :(

 

EDIT: Ah, i see i should have looked around the site a bit first :">

Myth: The Fallen Lords, and Myth II: Soulblighter. Never played Myth III, so can't comment on it, and these aren't RPGs, but they're fantasy and great fun.

I took this job because I thought you were just a legend. Just a story. A story to scare little kids. But you're the real deal. The demon who dares to challenge God.

So what the hell do you want? Don't seem to me like you're out to make this stinkin' world a better place. Why you gotta kill all my men? Why you gotta kill me?

Nothing personal. It's just revenge.

If you want action rpgs, then nox, revenant, diablo and diablo 2 are all great.

 

Or more modern (and better): Dungeon Siege 1 and 2

 

Other suggestion would be Silver

Unfortunately it doesn't work on a PC with XP, nor with one with a better card than a GeForce...

 

So you need some old PC stashed somewhere to still play it...

Gothic, Gothic 2, Gothic 2 Gold (coming out in November and includes an expansion that's more of a totally new game) and soon Gothic 3 might be what you're looking for.

Swedes, go to: Spel2, for the latest game reviews in swedish!

Are you only talking about PC games?

 

There are some really good console RPGs...

 

 

But as for PC games... I played this really old RPG along time ago, its a pretty old Monolith game called "Septerra Core." I never finished it, but it was sorta interesting (from what I can remember).
