Arrow Anyone know of some good RPG games


Here are some good RPG games I know of and some of these are not RPG games but alot are .


Here is some my fav RPG games .


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Awesome use of the open class system, awesome weapons, best hack 'n slash combat I have seen in my life... Ask almost anyone, they will tell you this is good.


Dragon Age Origins: Amazing RPG with great story and an awesome way of changing the story depending on the choices you make in the game. Real time strategic combat, pausable for strategic descisions.

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic: Best. RPG. Ever. If you like Star Wars, this game has the most different weapons and clothing options in any game i've ever seen. Also, the different light and dark endings make for an awesome story, similar combat system to Dragon Age (awesome).

Fallout 3: Future post-apocolypse setting with a first person shooter twist to it, but still an RPG... What is lacks in magic and evil spirits it has in awesomeness. It has zombies and radiation mutants though... Also, story is amazing.

Mass Effect series: I've never played them but they look good and everyone I know who's played them liked them...

I know I only have from Bethesda and Bio-Ware but those are the best RPGs I could think of.



Diablo ,Diablo 2 , Diablo 3.
.
Dragon Age and Dragon Age 2

KOTOR 2 (get the "unofficial" real ending and modded level additions for this as well), Fallout New Vegas, the 3 Mass Effect games - All are excellent

I haven't played any recent RPG mostly because the reviews are terrible and the bugs are many and bothersome, and I've wasted enough money on worthless, buggy games.

Out of the old RPGs that I've played some good ones are:
The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon (the others sucked) (there is an engine in development for Linux)
Gothic
Guild Wars MMORPG (good when it started out, and there were people playing and no expansion packs that made the original players obsolete unless they purchased them)
Neverwinter Nights (works on Linux too)
Chrono Trigger
Front Mission Gun Hazard (SNES)
X-Men Legends I and II (action-RPG)
Fable

Ones that are bad:
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Gothic II
Neverwinter Night II
Chrono Cross (lame compared to Chrono Trigger)

Games I don't remember how they were:
Dungeon Siege I and II, maybe they were forgettable

Games that could have been good, but weren't:
Valkyria Chronicles
Arx Fatalis (the bugs are a real pain)

I have played Demon's Souls, but it is annoying (falling deaths and autosave after you die), and buggy. I guess it is typical of new games.

I see that Crono Trigger was already mentioned, and I have already started playing it again just recently .


Besides the obvious Final Fantasy series on the SNES, I would also recommend the Breath of Fire series, Secret of Mana, Earthbound, Star Ocean (all SNES).

If you don't mind oldies then you will be amazed how they provide quality even after so many years - try Deus Ex or Vampire: Bloodlines

Fallout 3 is a FPS as far as I'm concerned. Why did they have to move to a lame FPS system? Fallout 1 + 2 turn based, isometric view are still some of the best RPGs ever made (though fallout tatics was also turn based, isometic and was awful)

For something a little different, try ADOM.

Yes, ASCI graphics. So if you live for eyecandy, and/or have limited imagination, its not going to be the game for you.
