    Are there any strategy/simulation country management games?

    I tried Masters of the World: GPS3, but it was plastered with bugs. However, I really loved the concept of that game. Are there any other recent titles similar to it? I looked at Democracy 3, but I don't think you can really control the military or wage war with other countries in that game.

    Europa Universalis 4, the newest game in Paradox EU line of games. That one is excellent starter grand strategy game about nation-leading.

    Something like Dishonored

    A while ago, I played Dishonored. That game was just amazing. Especially the story and immersion were great.

    I'm currently looking for a pc game that will grab me and drag me in the same way Dishonored did. With a great story and amazing immersion. I'm into many genres, but I like fantasy/steampunk settings best. I will only play singleplayer.

    A few games I liked: Dishonored (duh), DE:HR, Bioshock (all of them), WoW
    A few games I didn't like: GTA, Skyrim

    You really ought to give Thief serie (1-3) a try. It's fairly cheap on Steam and despite it's age it still manages to look rather great with all the play with shadows and light + it's immersive as hell. The storyline is quite excellent as well, but isn't really shoved in your face as much as it's in the snippets within the game itself.

    there aren't really any other good stealth games around in recent years, but you could just try other rpgs with good story - aka not Skyrim, which focuses mainly on open world :D

    the Mass Effect, Dragon Age and The Witcher series are pretty much the best recent ones. they all have a focus on story, great characters and worlds, but quite different gameplay.

    or you could try Assasins Creed. there's not much actual sneaking, but it might still feel similar. the story is good, but it's not really the focus of the game.

    Anyone recommend a rpg game where I can play as a death knight type class? Also thinking of playing Skyrim and Dark Souls for the PC. Are those good choices? Also thinking of playing Binding of Isaac. Anyone played that who can give me an opinion?

    yeah, i think you can make a great death-knighty-character in Skyrim, especially with some armor mods and stuff. frost magic, necromancy, spiky black plate armor,..

    Good Co-op games.

    Hey guys!

    A friend of mine and I play copious amounts of LoL together, but we wanna try something new. Does anyone have any good recommendations for good co-op games?

    We play mostly on the PC, but neither of us have amazing computers so very high end games won't work (although I don't know if there even are many top-end co-op games). We're fine with most genres, are willing to make a full purchase on anything reasonably priced if it looks good, etc etc. There isn't really much specific we want, just an enjoyable co-op experience. Any suggestions appreciated; thanks!

    Terraria and Magicka

    Terraria I got to play with my brother, but we can't work out the whole Port Forwarding issue, so unless someone helps me with that (online guides didn't work) that won't work. We were hoping for something more user friendly.

    I really enjoy playing Resident Evil on the Wii with friends. All pick up a remote and shoot the zombies! I believe Co-op works on the pc games too. But if you don't mind doing a little investment, the Wii U is great for playing together (but you do have to be together to use it).

    Borderlands (1 & 2) or Warframe if you like shooters.
    Smite seems rather fun too. somewhat similar to how LoL works, but probably still enough differences to feel new.
    Path of Exile or Torchlight 2 for dibalo-ish action rpgs.
    Orcs Must Die 2 and Sanctum 2 for mix of tower/trap defense and shooter.
    Magica and Trine 2 are both excellent co-op games too, but Trine 2 needs 3 people, and Magica is also more fun with a bigger party.

    these are all (except for Borderlands 2) pretty cheap too, or f2p with decent business models.

    Borderlands 2.. you can buy it super cheap on sale(sorry you just missed one ). I have 112 hours on it and a good portion of that was co-op and I dont even like many shooters! My husband jokes about this all the time that he cant believe one of my favorite games is an FPS. Deadspace 3 was also great in that genre and if you like RPGs Hunted: Demon Forge was a great co op. Coming early next year Divinity: Original Sin will be great if you want a story driven older style RPG with decent graphics and turn based(but highly inovative) combat. OH! and if you like tower defense Orcs Must Die 2 is awesome.

    edit: I see a few of my choices coincide with the previous poster and also agree with Torchlight 2 but heavily disagree about Path of Exile.. horrid game!

    it's hardly a "horrid game" in terms of gameplay and production value and quality, even though i can definitely see why many may dislike it :P
    it can be very confusing and unforgiving for beginners - but i gotta say, it seems to have one of the most helpful communities i've ever seen in any game (or at least it did, when i played it in beta a few months ago)!

    I tried to play Wushu but it was all in Japanese. Anyone else have any luck?

    Regardless I just wanted to say this thread is the most level headed one I've seen in the last few weeks of trying to figure out which MMO to play next as well. I can't even think about how badly I want unchained to be here...now. I figured someone would have figured out how to do pvp/rvr by now but no luck and I've almost played every mmo since then. I kind of game up looking actually a few years ago but with Unchained getting some real (albeit low budget) traction I thought about seeing whats up.

    I've played a little Tera (lvl 12) and if i'm going to get stuck with a soso pvp system i figure it might as well look nice. Stormkhan you got a guild or something I can humbly join until Unchained comes out? heh (seriously :-} tho if someone can pm him for me that would be great)

    the era of REALL MMORPGs is dead. what you want is wow probably, everything else is moving to purely instanced pvp because nobody really wants to do it otherwise
    You're wrong.

    World PvP isn't dead and todays players still like it. I'd even go as far as to say maybe half the players would want World PvP if it isn't forced on them all the time and can be avoided. The problem is that that the other half who doesn't like it might quit and the ones who like PvP most likely wouldn't if offered other forms of PvP or PvE activites.

    I think the problem with World PvP in current MMOs is not so much that players don't want to get ganked but small worlds. If you have 100 players in one zone, chances are good you can't get anything else done without someone attacking you. Also the AI is usually very poor so guards in the cities are easily exploited or even used by the attacked if you retaliate.

    Large zones and a huge world or dedicated PvP zones would fix that(ex. Runescape Wilderness).

    I think the next step up in the MMO genre, would be integrating console players and the PC crowd into the same one game. It would be fantastic if you were able to play with your friends that play on either the Xbox or Playstation on your PC.

    Of course there are many obstacles as well as bottlenecks on the console side, but I am sure it would all work out. This would mean bigger overall world and more people you can play with. With the next-gen of consoles, I am sure this should be more feasible.
