Your favourite RPG game

wungunwungun SydneyPosts: 67Member

You can favour more than one RPG game and share it with us on this thread, so i'll start with mine.

So far Skyrim is my favourite because of it's beautiful world design, gameplay improvements over the previous title (Oblivion), slaying dragons and the kickass theme song! image

 

Honourable mentions also are

KOTOR (the first one, never played the second one though)

Mount and Blade Warband (the best swordplay game ever imo)

Fallout 3 (the best post-apocalyptic RPG I've ever played)

Diablo 2 (Awesome franchise that started the Action-RPG genre, correct me if I'm wrong)

Oblivion (This game was amazing at the time, but now I'm playing Skyrim)

    Fallout 2

     

    Other honorable mentions:

    - Fallout 1

    - Baldur's Gate 2

    - Planescape Torment

    - Morrowind

    - Skyrim - though too much simplification and streamlining - if they go further down this line with next TESO - I won't buy it

     

     

    I consider Diablo as a hack & slash genre, not crpg.

    Mount & Blade is combat / tactic game & deatchmatch pvp multiplayer - I also don't consider it an rpg.  Well there is crpg mod, but I guess we talk un-modded version.

    Well Mount and Blade does have Skills, Attributes and Levels which contribute to character progression, so it's an RPG :D

    By that definition Call of Duty is also an RPG and actually 2/3 of games are.

    Morrowind I guess. It's one of the very few games i've sunk years into playing.

    I haven't finished it yet, but Divine Divinity is also turning out really good.

  • Gabby-airGabby-air surrey, BCPosts: 3,440Member Uncommon
    Dragon Age: Origins for me, some close ones would be the mass effect series and the witcher series.

    Hmm my all time fav rpg would have to be Xenogears. 

    when it comes to ps2 i really loved Suikoden 4

    ps1 honerable mention wild arms.

    ps3 Way of the samurai 3 i consider this a rpg because the sword lvls which is pretty much you lvling

    xbox360 caught between new vegas and skyrim burning man legend was awsome, but I love skyrims gameplay

    Xbox was Morrowind i used to jump from rooftop to rooftop in my chitan armor and dia katana.

    N64 would have been Zelda ocarana of time

    Snes Chrono Trigger

    sega Shining Force 2

    Sega Saturn Shining force 3

    GBA Golden Sun

    NDS Dragon quest 9

    GB pokemon red

    nintendo final fantasy 1 even thou for the first couple months i didn't explore past the first town because non of the villagers told you where tp go it wasnt tell i got brave that i found there was more to it. 

    Game gear shining force gaiden

    Game cube Windwaker

    By that definition Call of Duty is also an RPG and actually 2/3 of games are.

    Call out Duty doesn't have any character progression nor any feature to do up any attributes or skills other than leveling up and unlocking new weapons and perks. So that's a very bad example because it clearly isn't an RPG and Mount and Blade is. I do agree that Mount and Blade is an action/tactics game but it's also an RPG.

    Baulder's Gate series

    Arcanum

    Icewind Dale series

    NWN (never finished the second one)

    Ultima Underworld series

    Ultima series

    ... to name a few.  If had to pick one would say Arcanum.  I absolutely loved the technology and magika mix and blended it in very well.  Sadly it lacked support and any continuation of the IP.

    Pretty much anything from Bethesda Game Studios. I've played every major PC RPG game they've produced since TES: Arena and loved every one. to this day I'm still playing Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas (I know its from Obsidian but it still uses Bethesda's engine and art assets). Just these 4 games will give me years of gaming enjoyment from the base games and from all of the Mods available. I also played Arena for over a year, Daggerfall for over 3 years and Morrowind for over 6 years. Bethesda Game Studios is the only game company left that I'll preorder a game from or will buy a game on release day.

     

    Zenimax Online Studios is another matter all together however. So far their DAOC 2 with an Elder Scrolls paint job hasn't impressed me at all. I think I'll probably skip that one entirely as will many Elder Scrolls fans. Putting the name "Elder Scrolls" on what they're producing should be a crime.

    D&D pen and paper

    but if we are talking about electronic games...... then

    Final Fantasy VII and Neverwinters Night

  • daniel!!!daniel!!! nottinghamPosts: 400Member

    Final Fantasy 6 (yes i said it, not 7 i know, what a surprise)

     

    basically it had everything, the most annoying bad guy ever (Kefka), each of your characters had a interesting back story and was refelected later in the game when you had to find them all to get them back into your party.  

    It also had some of the best hidden caves with interesting weapons that changed combat effectivness completely 

    and come on, listen to this music

    makes me just want to adventure again and again :)

     

    Other rpg's that are brilliant:

    Tales of Synphonia (Game cube)

    Final Fantasy I-X2 (plus i started liking FF13-2 as well)

    Zelda Ocarina of time :) (plus many of the other zelda games)

    So apparently a game that has skills attribute and levels make the game a 'role playing game'. Ok gotcha

    Unquestionably, Fallout 2 followed closely by Fallout 1.  Hands down the best RPG's that I have ever played.  For their time, at least.

    For more modern RPGs, DA: Origins for sure.   Not to many others though...I do not manage to finish most modern RPGs, unfortunately.  Get bored before I get to "the end".

    Wasteland.

    Fallout.

    PC would have been KOTOR 2 cause Exile was just my fav char of all time. 

    That list and the BoF IV avatar picture leads me to believe you are a gentleman of discriminating taste. I enjoyed pretty much all of these games except for KOTOR.

    I'm not sure if you still have your saturn, but as a fellow Shining Force player, I really recommend Shining the Holy Ark. Personally I liked it better than SF3. It's more similar to Shining in the Darkness on Mega Drive (Wizardry style exploration and battles), really has a great atmosphere and is a lot of fun.

    Honestly, there are so many great RPGs that it's hard to narrow down a favorite for me.
