Looking for a single-player RPG with focus on replay

If a mod feels this would be more appropriate in LFG, that would be fine too, I wasn't sure which subforum would be best.


Anyway.  What I am looking for is a single-player RPG in which you are intended to start over repeatedly, because during the course of the game you can unlock many options that modify the starting conditions.  Probably it would be considered an interactive story game, and successfully completing little story segments or battles would be rewarded with achievements, and those are what would unlock the options I was talking about: alternative avatars, hidden perks, starting your new game + with higher stats than the default, earning one of several possible endings if you survive to the end, etc.  As far as platform goes, I have a PC, a PS3, a PS2, and anything older than the could be emulated.

I'm looking for this kind of game because there's a whole group of fanfictions inspired by this type of game, but I haven't been able to find actual games like this to play.

I want to help design and develop a PvE-focused, solo-friendly, sandpark MMO which combines crafting, monster hunting, and story.  So PM me if you are starting one.

    Sounds like a lot of the old Bioware games.

    Dragon Age, KOTOR, maybe even Mass Effect series.

    Just a thought.

    If you're a fan of South Park, Id highly recommend the Stick of Truth.

    Skyrim for PC + Nexus Mods = Eternal RPG'ing.

    Vampire the Masquerade -- bloodlines was a good one.

    Dragon Age - I looked this series up because it seemed like the kind of colorful fantasy setting I'm in the mood for, but I'm confused.  From what I was reading it seemed like the achievements didn't unlock anything within the game, only were useless online trophies.  And I also read that there isn't a new game+ feature, only the ability to import a character from an earlier game into a later game.  If these things are true, then it doesn't fit what I was asking for at all.  So did I misunderstand, or what??

    Chrono Trigger, multi-endings, new game +, one of the greatest rpgs ever created.

    While Dragon Age has several endings, multiple-classes and alternative biographical backgrounds to choose from, I found the level design waaaaaaaay too linear and restrictive to be interested in multiple play-throughs.

    As someone above me said, I'd say modded Skyrim for PC is a safe and in my opinion the best bet. Also, modded Fallout: New Vegas could be interesting as well.

  • FTL has the features you look for, although I wouldn't call it an RPG.
