i'm completely shocked that anyone here is under 25. i think its cool, im just surprised


The Internet: A place where everything is literally binary and the only shade of grey is the one seen by angry nerds when imagining what their ideal Diablo screen-shots look like.

Killing is kind of like playin' a basketball game. I am there. and the other player is there. and it's just the two of us. and I put the other player's body in my van. and I am the winner. - Nice Pete.

Damn, I hate being in the 'oldest' category of a poll, and even more so not being remotely near the next category down. But so be it.

Most beloved RPG: Planescape: Torment

 

I've been playing RPGs and MMORPGs for fifteen years now and have found that the average age of the players that I know in them has increased along with the timeline, other than in a couple of notable exceptions. In the current main MMORPG I play, about 90% of the people I know whether personally or via forums would fit into the 'oldest' category of this poll.

38,

BG2, NWN2, VtM:Bloodlines, Ultima 7. However, I really don't like RPG's that force you into playing a male protagonist (like PS:T and The Witcher unfortunately).

 

Edit: I almost forgot: any Forgotten Realms crpg like Curse of the Azure Bonds/ Pool of Radiance, etc. Those were absolutely wonderful at the time.

I am 25, and my favourite rpg hmmm, i'm going to say it's a toss up between NWN2 and Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines. But, honerable mentions go to KOTOR, Dragon age 1 & 2, ME 1& 2 (I'm a sucker for the romance).

I have never played Panescape Torment, or any of the Baldurs Gate or Icewind Dale games.

 

I am currently replaying Dragon Age 2 again, and just installed Divinity 2 on my computer.

Favorite RPGs?

  • Planescape: Torment

Great story involving whole scale of human emotions, weird atmosphere and interesting bizarre world to explore. Probably the best soundtrack ever on video game. That's what makes it greatest RPG of all time for me.

  • The Witcher 1&2

World of the Witcher is grim and dark place where you won't find black or white. Only shades of grey: Your choises and their consequences. Here you can really play role without worrying about what your "karma meter" is going to like about this choice. Also perfectly balanced difficulty to keep combat satisfying.

  • Knights of the Old Republic

Star Wars was a franchise that demanded to be translated into an RPG and what a great job did Bioware do with it!

  • Dragon Age: Origins

Story and character could have been a lot better, but still it was great tribute to old-school RPGs and I certainly had tons of fun with it. High difficulty level was also nice change.

  • The Elder Scrolls series

Stories and depth have never been Bethesdas strongest areas of expertise, but huge open worlds and feeling of freedom are incomparable to any other games on market.

I am only 768. I think. By drinking the blood of CRPG romance fans and trapping their souls in my phylactery, I extend my lifespan infinitely.

 

The most terrible thing about your post is, that this statement makes you the most romantic person on the Obsidian Boards >_<

I'm turning 20 soon.

 

Some of my favourites (not in any particular order) are Fallout, Wizardry 6, Dark Sun: Shattered Lands, and Betrayal at Krondor. I've played and enjoyed all the IE games, though, so it's not as if I'm going into this blind.

 

Very excited for PE, Wasteland 2, and Shadowrun.

28 and I don't really know what game is my favorite - BG2 maybe, but I really liked KOTOR 2 and Mask of The Betrayer as well.. Tough choice.

16 here. I really hope this games appeals to my age bracket however unlikely it is. I've played Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 as well Icewind Dale 1.

Given what is generally marketed at your age demographic, I think it would be better to hope that it appeals to you. Your tastes are not typical of other 16 year olds.

God I feel old. I remember playing NWN back in my teens and now i'm 27. PST is my favorite rpg to date, but the game I have the most time invested into is NWN. I don't even care to think about the amount of hours of my life I poured into that game.


Obsidian ‏@Obsidian Current PayPal status: $140,000. 2,200 backers

 

"Hmm so last Paypal information was 140,000 putting us at 4,126,929. We did well over and beyond 4 million, and still have an old backer number from Paypal. 76,186 backers. It's very possible that we have over 75,000 backers if I had new Paypal information. Which means we may have 15 Mega dungeon levels, and we already are going to have an amazing game + cats (I swear I will go stir crazy if Adam doesn't own up to the cats thing :p)."

 

Switching to Paypal means that more of your money will go towards Project Eternity. (The more you know.)

Paypal charges .30 cents per transaction and 2.2% for anything over 100,000 per month for U.S currency. Other currency is different, ranging from anywhere between 2.2-4.9%.

Kick Starter is a fixed 5% charge at the end.

All it takes is a right environment. When people around you practically worship BG2, PS:T etc., you're motivated to play them even if initially they don't appeal to you. It took three separate tries in the span of over a year before I got used to Baldur's Gate, but when I finally did, nothing could keep me away from those games :]

 

I'm 19, my favourite RPG is Morrowind. For the few people who claim TES games aren't RPGs, it would be the Fallout series. Also Betrayal at Krondor, I have a soft spot for this one.

Can Deus Ex get an honorable mention?

Can Deus Ex get an honorable mention?

 

Why not? Great game(s) and definitively has more RPG in it than some "real" RPGs of our time.

Yes I must finally admit to being a closet Romantic. Violently opposing Romances in this project is just a tragic symptom of denial and a turbulent inner conflict of metaphysical proportions.Please forgive me *sobs*

Currently I'd say The Witcher

 

At the announcement of this game I immediately drew up a list of the greatest CRPG's around (based on popular opinion) and am trying to play through all of them in the next two years or so. I'm on the Baldur's Gate series currently.
