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.
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.
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.
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 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
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?

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,
Batman Arkham Asylum&City
Dragon Age series,
Mass Effect series,
Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines,
Gears of War,
Assassin's Creed series,
King's Bounty and Heroes series,
Dark Messiah of M&M
Neverwinter Nights 2& Expansions
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Dead Space 1&2
Return of the Ring
Duke Nukem Forever
Far Cry 1&2
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 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.
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.
