1. Fallout 1 + 2

2. Baldurs Gate 1 + 2

3. Arcanum

 

I would like to mention Diablo 1, sure its more an A-RPG but it has an atmosphere so thick, you can cut thru it. Also it was my first.

999. Fallout 4

I played 100+ hours of it, its fun, it looks great, good FPS. But a horrible RPG

Nice to meet another game music aficionado :biggrin: (albeit my own tastes are more on "VtM: Bloodlines" and "Brutal Legend" side and I am probably the only person on Earth who finds ESO series music ultimately nondescript).

A few of us here have good taste in music, head over to the game soundtrack thread and you'll feel needed :)

(Also SWTOR: Imperial Agent story is one of my favourite RPGs, and pretty high on the list. It's criminally wasted as a part of a MMO)

 

That and the Sith Warrior story are my favourite ones in SWTOR. The sheer amount of twists and possible endings - especially for an MMO class story - makes Imperial agent quite a gem. Went through it three times to see the various outcomes; my favourite ending's

Shining Force III had similar qualities inside, and it isn't very popular here, sadly. To me, the best tactical RPG ever (sorry Jagged Alliance 2, but C&C and story are better in SFIII), and I suspect that many don't care about it, because they think it's a JRPG like the Final Fantasy series and co, while the Shining Force series has nothing to do with. But, the reason could be because it was released on Saturn, and only the first scenario was released in NA and Europe. About this, since I completed SFIII years after Planescape: Torment and Fallout, maybe if SFIII Scenario 2, 3 and the Premium Disc content were released outside of Japan back then, maybe SFIII would have become the first one in my top 3.

I played the old Shining force...

 

Man..that was good . And never heard of a 3rd !!

 

But if it was on Saturn , then yeah . 

 

 

I did own a Saturn back then (and still, because it remains one of my favorite systems), but I have waited for SFIII for too long, rumors were insistant about the project of a new Shining Force on Saturn, since 1995. When Shining Wisdom came, it wasn't bad (at least not as bad as many said) but not a 'Force. And when Shining the Holy Ark released, another nice game (very good in fact), but still not a 'Force... After 2 years, the wait was a bit tiring.

The only Shining Force-like released west-wide was Riglord Saga (aka Mystaria aka Blazing Heroes, depending of the area and the date of release). A pretty good one though.

 

Rumours around were that Riglord Saga 2 was in the making too, but when Sega of America crumbled Saturn marketing in 1997, I lost hope like everyone and went to PC (that's how I discovered Fallout and so on). It was literally years after that I have learned that both Riglord Saga 2 and Shining Force III were finally released in Japan (SFIII in 3 parts along 6 months, and with a bonus disc), and even SFIII scenario 1 was released in NA and Europe!

 

In the end, happy to have enjoyed Fallout and IE at that time and thus being mainly a PC gamer, but still a bit angry how Sega did for SFIII and the Saturn as a whole.

 

"thanks Sega"

 

 

I think SFIII isn't better recognized / popular because (a) it was on the Saturn and it wasn't as popular a system as Playstation was and (b) the full story only ever came out in the US.  SFIII was pretty much DOA when Sega of America announced that they were only bothering to translate the first chapter.  Most people I know modded their Saturn and bought the imports.

 

Personally I didn't find the wait all that bad, we had a yearly Shining release more or less but for one year (1996 IIRC and it would have been longer had Working Designs not picked up Wisdom since the Sega suits in the US were vaguely anti-RPG).  But I'm still annoyed that SFIII didn't come out in its full glory in the US and Europe (and that it was, alas, the last Shining Force game of its type).

Baldur's Gate 2 enhanced edition
Pillars of Eternity 2 Deadfire
Divinity Original Sin 2

I will probably edit my post to include Definite Edition of D:OS2, which will come in August.


I'm sorry, but I didn't like Pillars of Eternity Definite Edition as much as Divinity: Original Sin 2, BG2 or POE2.

Never felt for BG1 also.

Divinity: Original Sin EE also felt restricting to multiplayer.

NWN1&2 hit better spot than Vampire the Masquerade which was creepy and dark.
Planescape Torment sucks to me, but I need to try it one more time for definite opinion.

Sword coast legends was nice, but I also need to revisit that one.

Skyrim is bit boring, although my brother enjoy it and he thinks POE1&2, BG2 and other games I play are more point and click than Skyrim.

Other games I enjoyed/enjoy were /is Heroine Quest The Herald of Ragnarok, Ember, Ghost of a Tale, Tangledeep, Tower of Time
