    I'm looking for some good collectathon games. Things along the lines of Banjo Kazooie, Mario 64, etc. I like to play these sorts of games after I get off of work. It helps me unwind. It can be new or old, and basically any console, or for PC. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (:

    Still off-and-on playing through KoA:R myself. Apparently the company behind it went under or something? That's what I heard. The game's amazing, although it sometimes feels like an offline MMO lol. Combat's fun, I really like using bows. Graphics are pretty good, and the sheer amount of LORE behind this game is just amazingly fun! The voice acting is top notch as far as I'm concerned. Every other character isn't voiced by the same person (looking at you, Skyrim!), and it doesn't hurt that most of them have awesome accents :-P You get your own house (or two), the crafting is pretty cool, if a bit limited, some of the weapons look freaking AMAZING, armors to me are...well, kinda run-of-the-mill fantasy RPG stuff, though I haven't seen the end-game armors yet.

    DA:O and Awakening are really great games. DA2 is a shithouse compared to them. It's basically on rails, it mostly takes place in the same town, so not a lot of exploring to do. Graphics are arguably better in 2. Though 2 isn't near as moddable, if at all, as the first and Awakening are, and the latter two have some awesome texture mods. If you're playing on the console, or aren't a modder, I guess that doesn't really matter though lol. Many, many people were not happy with DA2, the sheer amount of limitations and arbitrary loss of freedom in some aspects pissed a lot of people off. If DA2 is the ONLY game in the DA series you play, it actually isn't half bad. But going from the first one into the second one...it's painful.

    SPRYO: SKYLANDERS! Man, I am so freaking ADDICTED to that game! Many things to collect, both in and out of the game :-P Cartoony, childish, but still really fun. Available on any console, I play it on the PS3 myself.

    Deus Ex:Human Revolution would definitely be something you'd like. Dragon Age 2 also (it's a lot like mass effect, but skyrim type lore rather than space). If you want a heavier rpg go with Dragon Age: Origins. It's like Skyrim but way more focused (less fluff, and by that I mean being able to pick up forks and plates that have no use whatsoever). You'd probably like Darksiders II and the old KOTOR games (both of them are awesome) too.

    A lot of people never heard of it, but Kya: Dark Lineage is a really fun 3D platformer for PS2. There's a little bit of collecting to be done as certain things are unlocked by how many of a certain type of bad guy are defeated in a certain stage. They're placed in some pretty creative spots, too.

    Re-stating request

    Here is a stretch, looking for a good hopefully more recent game (with decent graphics at least) that is either an rpg or rts where there are dwarves as a playable race and/or faction, will consider mmos as long as they aren't weird asian ones.

    Games with dwarves I have already played so you don't need to mention
    Dragon age
    wow
    rift
    a game of dwarves
    both the warhammer and lord of the rings mods for total war
    Battle for middle earth 1& 2
    lotro
    Warhammer online

    Yes, unfortunately, 38 Studios declared bankruptcy early 2012. It was quite sad because there was apparently something like 10, 000 years worth of lore created for the Amalur IP that would've been used for future KoA's.

    I read somewhere that there was some other company who had interests in taking over the IP but I'm not sure what's going on with that any more. It sucks because if it wasn't overshadowed by Skyrim I think it would've gained more popularity, and the company would have survived if it was popular because it's a really good game.

    I suggest anyone who reads this to go buy it and play it. Who knows, if the game starts getting popular maybe another company will try to take it over and make more.

    I know this the wrong thread for this but: DONT DISRESPECT THE PLATES IN SKYRIM, THEY ARE THE SINGLE MOST USEFUL TOOL IN THE ENTIRE GAME.

    Im looking for a new single player game. Something like Mass Effect or Deus Ex: Human Revolution would be nice. While i didnt mind games with companions, i dont really love them either, als long it has an awesome story line, interesting class/skill/build variations, oh and the genre could be anything from fantasy or science fiction or whatever. Other Games i really enjoyed would include the Star Wars KotoR Games, Dragon Age, The Elder Scrolls and both Darksiders Games. While im currently more in the mood for something like Mass Effect or Deus Ex, if you have another game which you think i will enjoy, lets hear it!

    Thanks in advance

    Suggest me a popular PVE game.

    Not interested in PVP games. Would prefer if it was a popular game. Free to play as well and not a game where content is blocked (Yeah I'm looking at you, SWTOR)

    Age of Conan is pretty fun and has a decent community. TERA is going free-to-play sometime in February. In the buy-to-play category you have Guild Wars 2 and The Secret World.

    The Witcher is pretty damned good - Story is excellent (based on a series of books written in Poland), though the combat system is a bit... basic. Well worth playing though. The second one is nothing short of excellent and is still one of the prettiest games around. The combat system has been greatly improved and it's a much more rounded game.

    Dishonoured is also quite good, I'd recommend that one.

    Can anyone recommend any other MMORPGs that me and my girlfriend can play together, preferably one without a subscription since we are both subbed to WoW also.

    Maybe one thats not got a complicated interface/game play as my misses is still learning the ropes of gaming.

    well, since my original thread I created was redirected here:

    So I finally got a paypal account with some money on it, and I was wondering what games you would recommend based on my current possessions:

    http://steamcommunity.com/id/nzall/games?tab=all

    i'm looking for games in the style i already own. note that I already own a number of prequels and sequels to some of these games. but just give some general recommendations.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    Personally, I think the best F2P MMO is Age of Conan. It's fun, got great combat, and it's just a good game all around. If you don't mind a box cost, Guild Wars 2 and The Secret World don't have subs.

    I'd start with the first Portal game if you haven't played it yet. Left 4 Dead 2 is a good, mindless bit of fun and has the first game built into it too.

    Need a little more info on what you're looking for! Action? Adventure? PC or console?

    Looking for a game to play...till TES:O

    So just a brief something about me, I've been playing WoW for the past few years. Its been a long time coming and I have quit WoW recently. I am excitedly waiting for TES:O. However, I am hoping to pick up a game or 2 in the mean time.

    I was thinking about Diablo 3 or maybe Planetside 2.

    Are there any other games that anyone might suggest that worth investing time in? I ain't looking for another MMO or an Asian kind of game or themed game. Also ain't looking for any Zelda or Final Fantasy.

    Rephrased and moved for you. -sj

    I'd go to Steam and look under the free games. There are quite a few worth checking out.

    Isn't Tera a PVP based game aside for leveling? What end game content does it have? Any raids or stuff like that?
