    I really enjoyed Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. I think it's one of the most underrated western RPGs to be released this generation of gaming. The graphics are vibrant and the art style unique and beautiful. The music is charming. The combat is a bit repetitive, but a lot more engaging and entertaining than Skyrim and most other WRPGs. The story is okay, I've pretty much given up on the idea of a WRPG having a good story since BG2.

    Might as well add to this. Looking for a game that is similar to dragon age in terms of party management and combat, and also with a good story. Never played any of the older RPG's such as Baldas Gate or other game of around that time, so I would like to know which one of them is a good starting point. I don't mind a bad looking game in terms of graphics, but clunky feeling game play will really get to me.

    If you like Dragon Age, there are a lot of classic games that control pretty well and are cheap as hell on websites like gog.com (Good Old Games).

    Want something with a theme and story unlike anything else you've played? Check out Planescape: Torment. Fantastic classic WRPG that is, like Dragon Age, loosely based on AD&D rules and gameplay.

    Want what is, IMO, the best WRPG ever created? Look to Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. Fantastic story with great characters that will keep you sucked in until the very end.

    Want the equivalent of a dungeon crawler using Dragon Age style combat and rules? Look at Icewind Dale and Icewind Dale II, barebones story but full customization of your team.

    Not quite the same as Dragon Age but I'd suggest an older D&D style RPG like The Bards Tale series (not the one that was released in 2000 or whatever) or Wizardry, or Might and Magic. They're first person semi-2d dungeon crawls but they can be a whole lot of fun.

    GoG.com is having a sale on Might and Magic for super cheap so it would be a huge investment to see if you like it and if you do then you'll have hours of gameplay.

    3 and 4/5 are my favorites.

    Yes you can play offline, but it is through Steam offline. It's incredibly fun, but you won't get the most out of it unless you have a minimum of 2 people playing....not even sure how 1 player would work honestly. It does have LAN capabilities for offline multiplayer.

    Torchlight 2 is also available to play offline and is well worth it.

    ty for the advice and @Grogo, I would not suggest Kingdoms of Amular. Don't get me wrong it feels like a good well polished game, but I just felt the combat it's self was not on par with other games. Cant talk about it's story to much, it seemed decent, but I only played about 3 hours of it. You can really tell it started live as an mmo imo and that is not a good thing, but again a lot of others disagree and the general conciseness is that it is a good game

    I play it alone and it's easy. The first and most of the 2nd. Haven't played with my friend yet but he has it so we will eventually.

    I recommend Borderlands 2 if you like FPS and RPG games. It's amazing and what I've been playing a LOT recently. It has a great story and voice acting and It's hilarious. 3 talent trees per character, 4 characters, 5 if you get the Mechromancer class DLC. Instead of swords, shields, magic staves, etc. from most RPG games, this game is all guns (there's also grenades, energy shields, class mods and relics that modify certain things). You can also customize your character's appearance with different heads and skins you find as you play. Rarity of loot goes white, green, blue, purple, orange (legendary) just like WoW and other games.

    You play the game, then start the "2nd playthrough" which is a harder mode with better loot and you level the whole way. Cap is 50 and you'll hit it towards the end of the 2nd playthrough. Once you're 50, all enemies and quests/rewards scale to 50 and you can farm out the max level versions of the most powerful stuff in the game. The loot is crazy, it's always different because there's literally millions of variations of guns and equipment in the game. You can also play offline.

    I'd like to know which is the current best MMO with a PvP focus.

    Im tired of Wow IMBA Classes like the everlasting mages just because the lead designer plays one.

    I want real pvp in a MMO, preference in free to play or with trial.

    Also, it has to have a active community ( so dying games don't really count)

    oh and i beg you please don't say GW2

    please give me suggestions, thank you

    WoW has one of the most balanced and competitive pvp scenes, so if you aren't satisfied with that, then you're pretty much SoL. Although while it isn't an MMO, I've heard Forge is pretty good and some of the top WoW PvPers worked on the game to balance it.

    Hi,

    I am looking for a game I can play on my Laptop while on the train on the way home.
    * Since it is on the train and I dont always get a good spot, I have limited or slow mouse control.
    * My Laptop has a GC not suitable for gaming( NV QUADRO), so the game should not be that demanding.
    * I am into RPG and Strategy Games
    * I played most of the old stuff RPG(Planscape, BG, Neverwinter, .....) and Strategy (AOE, The Settlers, Civ...), so pls think a little out of the box.
    * ATM I finished FF8 on my PS1 emulator.

    I know its a tough one, any suggestions?

    Quite an old game I remember playing was Populous the beginning. Didn't require a massive amounts of micro. It's a small-scale RTS. You can buy it from www.gog.com for about 3$ - Check out some gameplay first.

    Well if you've only played AC 3 then I'd go back and play 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations. AC 1 is really boring compared to the newer ones, and I haven't beaten and still pick up on most of the references to it. IMO AC 2 is the best of the series, so I'd start there.

    Hey guys,
    I recently lost my system and changed to a notebook with a gt520m card, so i am a little limited. I'm working hard these days and very stressed out, so I just need a good story to lose myself in during my free time, a good RPG, FPS or action game would do. I especially like Bioware style games like Dragon Age, Mass Effect etc. I know there are quite a lot "old" games out there, but for some reason, I can't bring myself to play with that graphics, so Torment and Baldur's Gate are out of the equation.

    Here are the sp games I played the past few years,
    Witcher 1&2
    Batman Arkham Asylum&City
    Dragon Age series,
    Mass Effect series,
    Space Marine,
    Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines,
    Diablo series,
    Gears of War,
    Dark Souls,
    CoD series,
    Metro 2033,
    Mirror's Edge,
    Republic Commando,
    KOTOR 1&2
    GTA series,
    Darksiders
    Assassin's Creed series,
    Mount&Blade series,
    King's Bounty and Heroes series,
    Dark Messiah of M&M
    Portal 1&2
    Neverwinter Nights 2& Expansions
    Painkiller series
    Quake 4
    Morrowind&Oblivion&Skyrim
    Fable series
    Marvel Ultimate Alliance
    Jedi Academy&Outcast
    Dead Space 1&2
    Return of the Ring
    Duke Nukem Forever
    Hellgate: London
    Crysis series,
    Far Cry 1&2
    Titan Quest&Expansion
    Half Life 2&Expansions
    Fallout: New Vegas


    I think that's all. Can you suggest me anything please?
    In the meantime, feel free to ask anything about the games on the list if you have the intention to play one.

    I don't want to be a douchebag, but i think wow pvp has gone far from balanced. I played it quite a lot during mists of pandaria and i can tell even cataclysm ( judged to be the worst xpac ever) was better at least pvp wise. If wow was made of druids mages paladins warriors and warlocks, then yes, balanced. Unfortunately, they forgot all other 6 classes ( maybe they didn't totally forgot some, but monk rogue and dps shaman are ridiculously BAD)

    I may try out Forge, but don't another game come to your mind? ):

    The reason is said " NO GW2" because you need to simply look at the forums to see 1238213021 topics crying about pvp balance, and reviews telling disappointment in a pvp view, for a pvp dedicated game.

    I'm looking for a good fluid combat Hack'n Slash MMO to play on my PC. I live in Australia so servers must be close enough to not exceed 350-400ping.
    English language, Decent sized community (Worst thing playing an MMO and not seeing a single person)
    Pay to win = No. Free 2 play or P2P I don't mind.

    With 11 classes and 34 specs, I can only imagine how difficult it is to balance them all. For an MMO WoW is still very balanced. Yes, there are classes that are overpowered, but if you are a good player, you'll do well with whatever class you prefer. There's no class in WoW that when you enter an arena match you say, "Oh they have a *insert overpowered class here* we might as well leave." It was like how BM hunter had crazy burst, but in high rating arenas they weren't as dominant, because their burst could be countered in many ways. Is S12 isn't the most balanced season ever, but it's still not incredibly unbalanced either.

    If you want competitve PvP, then WoW is pretty much your only option. If you can settle for BGs (or whatever they're called in other games), then I've heard that Rift has good ones. I dunno about the actual balance of the classes though.
