I need some recommendations guys. I want to get some new games so I’m searching for worthwhile RPG’s that I could sink my teeth into. I figured I’ll ask everyone here and see if I can get some good recommendations. I’m looking for semi-recent stuff but classics are fine too. In fact one of the recommendations I hear all the time is Fallout. So that game is definitely on my list – I just need to get around to locating a copy somewhere. Something more recent with bit better graphics would be nice though.
I don’t mind more action oriented games which require some button mashing during combat. Some people don’t like that proffering more of a strategic approach but I’m not one of them. For example, some of my favorite PC RPG’s are Morrowind and Jade Empire which do have a more or less twitch oriented combat. However, I don’t mind turn based stuff either. For example I loved Knights of the Old Republic.
Setting doesn’t matter to me. In fact fantasy seems to be sort of the default setting anyway. Something different like Scifi or Cyberpunk is always welcome though. Once again, Fallout seems to be an interesting choice here so I will definitely check it out. :)
I loved the openness of Morrowind – being able to go anywhere, complete side quests and level up without worrying that much about the main mission was great. Anything with that mode of play would be nice, but I don’t mind a more structured approach either. Btw, I haven’t played Oblivion, but I don’t think my dated hardware can handle it so that one is a no go.
Feel free to recommend MMO’s, but I’m really more interested in single player stuff. I just don’t feel like paying a monthly fee. I tried WoW and it was fun, but not $15 a month fun. But I’m willing to try new stuff if it offers a free trial the same way WoW did. One MMO that looked interesting to me was Tabula Rasa but alas, no trial. :(
Oh, before you recommend it note that I used to play Guild Wars but at the moment I’m completely bored with it. Maybe one day I will dust off my Necro but for now… Meh…
So, is there a game that I should definitely pick up? Which game really had an impact on you? What game would you like to see me review here? Let me know. I need tome good recommendations. :mrgreen:
Yeah, yeah – it’s a crappy post about nothing. It’s Monday, give me a break. It might still end up being a good resource for everyone if we get some good recommendations here!
