    sort of similar to dragon age. you can have 5 companions (plus yourself) in your party, and there are tons of different classes.

    it is of course quite old however, which is notable in more things like just graphics. the combat is generally pretty clunky and often inbalanced compared to what you are probably used to.
    but it still has a great story and great characters. most aren't fully voiced, but the dialogues themselves are awesome

    Is there any games similar to it nowadays besides what bioware makes?

    hmm, not that i know of. the only one i can think of that kinda fits would be Shadowrun Returns, which is a recent indie title. it does have isometric, round based combat with a party. however, these party members are almost exclusively temporarily hired for only one mission. it does have interesting characters outside of combat missions though (there's a lot of text based talking in that game). since it's a 20 bucks indie title, it's rather short though (12-18h, apparently) and the combat itself is rather simplistic, with focus more on dialogues and story.

    I suppose the only thing that is current that is remotely similar are tactical squad based games like X-Comm. Not an RPG but you do control more than just one person there for combat situations.

    yeah, i was thinking about x-com too. shadowrun returns' combat has pretty clearly taken ideas from it.
    but it's still probably not what someone is looking for who wants rpgs with party characters.

    Hey I'm looking for a game similiar to DayZ - you know, a shooter or any other type of MMO in which the main goal is to SURVIVE. Are there even games like that? And don't tell me to try shit called WarZ.

    How about Infestation? ::snicker::

    Seven days to die? Its in alpha or beta at the moment, but its focused on every other concept except PvP. In fact I don't think it even has any pvp.



    Looking for a game similar to guitar hero/rockband for PC. A music rhythm game. I know there is a mod or something called frets on fire, but I used to play it. Its alright, problem is I don't have a guitar anymore and I don't like using the keyboard for it. Would prefer something that has smooth control interface, looks decent at least. I have audiosurf, and its alright, not my favorite.

    EDIT 1: Also looking for something similar to Gauntlet Legends/Dark Legacy for PC. Something where I can just basically hack & slash my way to victory with 2-3 abilities or special combo moves and feels somewhat arcade-ish with hopefully some multiplayer in it as well as some different zones/areas as well as bosses in an isometic view.

    So, I apparently posted this in wrong place - sorry Mods! I made a thread to keep everything in one place. Was hoping to post and come back to a convenient list. Yes, I am also looking for more decent titles for my YouTube vids as I seem to be scraping bottom at moment - hence the request...

    I still can't friggin' buy Final Fantasy 14 from their store! aaaaaargh! Here's the request:

    Hi, guys

    Looking for an mmo or two to try out.

    Firstly, I am a bit of a graphical snob. I prefer a game that looks good, has decent animations as well as decent gameplay.

    Money isn't a deciding factor - Sub, Buy Once-Off, F2P, etc - I like many F2P games, but... I would like to know:
    What decent / entertaining MMO WoW-type games have you tried in the last 3~4 years or so?

    Only requirements
    Game must have some sort of guilds.
    Can be either PvE or PvP based or both
    Must look okay and
    animations must be okay
    do you level? if so what is "max level" aka "endgame" like ?
    are there dungeons and/or raids (>5man)?
    how do you rate graphics and animations?

    Any suggestions? Can you tell me what you liked and why you stopped playing it or continue to play it?

    Have tried, looked at these:
    Rift, Defiance, Dragon's prophet, Neverwinter, Guild Wars 2, Aion, Everquest 2, Star Wars the Old Republic, Tera, World of Warcraft, Firefall
    Age of Wushu / Age of Wulin, Age of Conan, Fallen Earth, Lord of the Rings,

    Also, give your insight (please) on these:
    I am buying FF14, am downloading Invictus, C9, Scarlet Blade, Ragnorak II, Planetside II
    What happened to Warhammer? F2P? Runes of Magic, Perfect World?

    What else is out there?

    Sincerely, thanks for your time! Any insight or experiences (good or bad) would be appreciated.

    ps: I know "google is your friend", but this sort of response does not help me... I prefer to get a perspective / recommendation from you guys - I've checked a lot of the popular mmo sites too, but to have to wade through 1000's of vids...nah. Rather hear from you!

    But Mr. Wocky...

    You've reviewed 15 MMO's in a graphic comparison....so confused.

    You might try allods online if you haven't yet. As well as neverwinter. I haven't tried neverwinter, but allods felt alot like wow/runes of magic. As well as LOTRO.

  12. #1092
    He's played Neverwinter and LOTRO

    Sort of a hard question to answer as I would have suggested a lot of the games that he has already played.

    I guess FFXIV would be the next one to try (wasn't my cup of tea but doesn't mean you won't like it). Never heard of Invictus (do you mean Vindictus?) I would stay away from Scarlet Blade unless you just want to see some tits. Planetside 2 is completely different than any other game on your list. I'd give that a go if you haven't played it although it certainly doesn't have a lot of your requirements (like pve, dungeons, raids, etc).

    I guess dragonnest and warframe would be good choices.
    Lv30 (Warframe) - Zephyr - Boltor Prime - Lex Prime - Dakra Prime - Gold Seeker -
    Lv40 (Firefall) All Battleframes
    Lv60 (Neverwinter) - Rogue - Fighter - Wizard - Guardian - Cleric -

    Dunno if anyone said anything about FF:ARR yet but Im playing atm and I found it quite fun, you can switch classes just by switching weapons( you will have to do a class-quest) and your level will go back to one again so if you are the supergrinder you can level all classes to 50 which would take some time.

    Atm im lvling a Paladin and I found it quite fun, i haven't yet mastered the role so im lacking a bit but the mid level instances are hilarious so far what i've seen it's mostly tank and spank at the early instances but when you get to about 25 and up the bosses start to get unique ways to fight them which makes it fun, atleast for me.

    There's probably more that i forgot to mention but can't think of anything right now^^

    I'm still considering trying warframe, but the whole concept of an fps with rpg elements in group/raid content just seems awkward. Maybe I can just only imagine them in a third person perspective to be successful.

    I play in 3rd person unless I am going for headshots down a long hallway with a pistol or something. 3rd person is the default perspective.

    Sort of needs to be with all that katana swinging...

    I'm looking for a game that is exceptionally fantasy-themed like WoW or Skyrim. Must include Dwarves. Please nothing Asian. Genre doesn't matter, nor do graphics. I prefer something that's a fun little gem not many people have heard about.

    For both of the posts above, try the Witcher series (although it's not something not many people have heard about).

    Similar game to skylanders for pc?

    Ok so short story.

    I had to reinstall windows on my pc, went to a local game store to pickup a cheap ps2 game to play while I wait for all my games/drivers etc to download & install. Saw skylanders giants for the wii. Picked it up for my 7/8 year old brothers. I just played it about 20 minutes ago, was browsing saw skylanders spyros adventure for pc, but giants was nice because, of well, giants...

    Was curious if there was anything like it for the pc? I know disney infinity is possibly coming to PC, but no confirmation is given yet and swap force to my knowledge is not coming to pc.


    If theres nothing similar to it, what are the major differences between spyro's adventure & giants besides the fact of the giants characters.
