I'm looking for a new mmorpg to play but I'm willing to settle for a extremely good single player pc game. I generally tend to like games with a lot of customization and a sort of fantasy sand-box sort of world (true sand-box is rare though so anything that isn't a string of quests leading you from level 1 to cap is bearable). Besides hardcore FPS and WoW clones I'm really open to anything though.
A few games I've liked;
-Mabinogi (played on and off since beta, most of what I'm looking but I've done 99% of the content)
-Vindictus (gameplay is more what I'm looking for)
-"Tales of" series
-The Lat of Us(enjoy the scavenging aspect)
-League of Legends(don't love MOBAs though, besides I've tried them all)
-Dark Cloud 2(weapon system is glorious imo)
-Ragnarok Online(Class system is very... good?)
-Wizardry Online(not Wizardry 101[had a good concept but terrible execution])
Please don't recommend;
-Anything from Nexon
-Guild Wars 2
-Point and Click(unless its the bee's-knees)
-PvP intense games
Please no games with a monthly subscription and note that my computer isn't amazing. I can play Vindictus on max settings and TERA on medium-low settings with no high fps.
Thanks a bunch!
Any idea for a sandbox-style MMORPG in a fantasy setting? I used to play Star Wars Galaxies quite a lot and yearn for that style of game, with more depth beyond standard PvE/PvP gameplay.

Hey, just finished bioshock infinite. Basically I am in need for a nice developing story as well as some characters I can into. I was wanting to fill my thirst for a new rpg.
I was either gonna checkout the original Bioshock or, KOTOR. I own both (1 gifted to me and 1 bought cheaply on sale). I would lean towards KOTOR if I could complete it before I reach 20 hours played or roughly that time played.
Any other must play rpgs (mainly story, gameplay is secondary to story for me) can be suggested in reference to my post please.
I have played rpgs:
-Darksiders 1 + 2
-Fallout 3/new vegas
-Elder scrolls: oblivion and SKyrim
-Kingdoms of amalur: Reckoning
-Tomb raider (2013)
-The witcher 1 + 2 (these of which being my favourite)
-Mass effect trilogy
-All the pokemon games
-I don't like combat akin to Dragon Age: Origins although the story is decent enough.
-I like turn based (paper mario series) or action turn based (like final fantasy 7) or even full on action combat like dmc or darksiders
-I hate the snes art style like donkey kong platformers and super mario rpg (even though I loved that game just art style I had to grit my teeth).
-I have access to xbox 360, High end PC, nintendo 3ds (obviously this includes ds) to get games for.
Thank you for any suggestions!!!
EDIT: I haven't tried half life series is it worth it?
I got 20$ on steam to spend since I can't buying Walking Dead 400 day's later without having the Season 1 episodes so ill get that later.
With that said I have been looking at a few games and I wanted people to tell me some games and give me a idea of what to buy.
The games I have looked at are.
PayDay The Heist
Dust: An Elysian Tail "Really sucks I missed the sell over the weekend "
Saints Row The Third "without DLC with it cost 10$ and I don't have it to spare atm"
Final Fantasy VII "Big Fan of FFVII but I want something new to play "
Counter Strike GO "I had this on xbox360 and loved it dose anyone know if its still active and how active it is"
So anyone got any idea's????

I'm a completionist, and I like RPG's a lot. I absolutely loved WoW BC if that helps... I'm also a big SW: KOTOR fan, even though the combat wasn't great. I'm really waiting on Wildstar right now.
Generally don't like shooters. Loved Mass Effect games though.
A game with an active online community is always nice. Love playing LoL and Dota, but obviously can't at work.
I loved the concept of Diablo 3 (slowly progressing based on drops) but I disliked the AH and RMAH...

Dragon Age: Origins.
Rift (Solo leveling).
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (Best combat system of any RPG ever, imo).
As for Diablo 3 if you are playing solo you can pause the game and you can just ignore the AH if you don't want to use it. Also, an alternative to D3 would be Torchlight II which many people consider to be a better overall game than D3.
They all have a strong focus on the RPG aspect, and the combat is more tactical than reaction-based and everything can be paused in a second's notice. :P
Would anyone happen to know of any good modern 4X games? I haven't been able to find many recently, with the last one that I played with it being at all recent would be the game Towns. Anyone know of a good 4X game that's coming out soon or has come out within the last couple years? I would play Prison Architect but it lags super hard on a Large map when you get a large prison going, which is a bummer.
Any and all help would be awesome.
As for StarDrive, I've been hearing bad things about StarDrive, which is a bummer because I was looking at it for a while but it's been getting negative reviews almost across the board with many customer complaints on things like the AI and depth. I feel like it's a little expensive if it's truly unfinished as people say.
I am looking to buy a new game or two in the steam sale, what I am most looking to get is a strategy game set either in the future or in space. I was hoping people could recommend a few, I have not played any so the age of the game isn't really an issue.
Games I like to play strategy wise are rise of nations, total war games, tycoon games, older games like TTD. ( I play other games like WoW and football manager etc)
With the steam sale I was hoping to maybe catch a bargain as I have noticed a few games that fit my criteria are over 50% off
Sins of a solar empire is probably the best C&C clone in space.
single player non strategy would probably be X3 extremely deep, quite a learning cliff and a very unintuitive menu system, although you do break through it with time.
then EVE is probably the best space mmo.
turn based space games or rather 4x i'm not so good with, personally i liked star ruler very indie lots of options, but its quite easy to kill your computer if you don't cap the ship limit. star drive is a newer one, fun ship design, not much in the way of economy management or exploration though.
as a little end note it won't pop up in steam but there is one space strategy game that i thought was more fun than Sins, which was homeworld 2 with the Complex mod, great fun to be had there. the battles still look great even if the game is pretty old now.

Star Ruler aint TBS though and I find Distant Worlds (not available on Steam though) just walks over Star Ruler but it also certainly will wake your inner OCD. If it's really TBS then I'd recommend starting out with the classic of all sci-fi space TBS games: Master of Orion 2 (available at gog.com). After that you may try Galactic Civilizations 2 (available on Steam) but not the campaign (it's supposed to be for veterans of the sandbox mode).turn based space games or rather 4x i'm not so good with, personally i liked star ruler very indie lots of options, but its quite easy to kill your computer if you don't cap the ship limit. star drive is a newer one, fun ship design, not much in the way of economy management or exploration though.
also yes ruler isn't turn based i fumbled my sentence there a bit, its still not a bad game (mods are quite cool for it) the scale just becomes a bit nuts after a while.

I asked this over in the Steam Sale thread, but I figure this might get a bit more exposure. I am considering buying Just Cause on steam because 1) It's only $2.99 and 2) It looks interesting. So if I don't like it as much I didn't waste much money. My question is, has anyone gotten the DLC for it? Is it worth it to get it or is it just all cosmetic stuff that makes no difference?
Yeah, I know, I was a mercy-buyer, meaning the guy was going to be broke personally and had to rush out what was a literally unplayable game. It was also the game which gave way to me buying Distant Worlds. Although both differ slightly in the approach, SR can be played like a RTS but DW has a more grandscale and sandboxy approach with 4X which makes it appear deeper.also yes ruler isn't turn based i fumbled my sentence there a bit, its still not a bad game (mods are quite cool for it) the scale just becomes a bit nuts after a while.
I need a good modern game to play. I enjoy multiplayer games, but single player games can be fun too. Basically I've become fed up with the current games, at least the ones that I've been exposed to. I have a psp and a pc, no other consoles. Right now the only games I seem to enjoy are FF7 and Legend of Dragoon, but I want something modern. I've probably just burned myself out, but I cannot stand these games nowadays. Where's the 2013 holy grail game?
Things not to suggest;
NonFree Roam RPGs.
Blizzard Games (sorry blizz, you changed to a crap developer in recent times)
Any game that isn't optimized (Sorry PoE, you were great fun and the potential is there, and I'll come back once you sort it out.)
Games I own/played.
Assassin's Creed, BioShock, Borderlands, Blacklight Retribution, CoD, Darkness II, Dead Island, Defiance, Dota 2, Duke Nukem, Skyrim, Fallout, Firefall, From Dust, GTA, Hellgate, Kingdoms of Amalur, LoL, Left 4 Dead, Mafia 2, Minecraft, Mount and Blade, Orcs Must Die, Path of Exile, Plants vs Zombies, Rift, Civ 5, Simcity, Smite, Terraria, Torchlight, Witcher 2, WoW.
I don't really care about graphics being realistic or cartoony, but they need to be well done. Can't wait for Wildstar and ES:O.
If anyone is into Retro-Gaming I would suggest Bionic Commando: Rearmed - It's pretty much an HD Remake of the original 8-Bit NES Game. And for only $2.49 on Steam..Can you really go wrong?
