First fo all, my favorite games in order are; 1- Planescape Torment (I guess I will play sometime again if I can find my box) 2- Arcanum 3- Baldur's Gate (and ToSC) 4- Gothic II 5- Vampire Masquerade: Bloodlines 6- Baldur's Gate II (not ToB, it sucked badly) 7- Final Fantasy Chrono Trigger (I know that most FF games sucks balls, but try this one if you havent; as you can even change unnatural selection of human race over dinasours in the prehistoric times and come back to a present where everyone is reptilian with some funny guys running at streets in human costumes) Also as strategy I love Disciples 2-3, heroes 2-3 (havent tried 6 yet). It took me a real while to break my prejudice against new 3D RPGs, as neverwinter nights was the first 3D one I played and I cant remember another game I was more disappointed with. Gothic II was the one I made my peace with 3D RPGs once again. Then I tried some others like Fable 1, Elder scrolls 3, 4 (havent played 5 yet), SW Kotor 1, 2; while they were alright I didnt enjoy them as much as above. Lately I finally broke my prejudice against Dragon Age and started playing it and before I know several weeks passed obsessed with it! I know it is just a cookie game with the fake feeling of RPG, where everything is already laid before us and we just pick 1. 2. or 3. without really solving or discovering options. Every quest is just thrown in front of us with all options of solution being told beforehand. It was more like reading those old books with "go to page 25 if you want to enter that deadly dark hole, otherwise go to page 13", or watching a movie but being able to say "nah, it would be better if he would do like that". Yet it was well worked on with the amazing(!) OST, characters having some personality and the best tactical fight I have seen in games (which was pretty similar to the one in temple of elemental evil). Also animations and cutscenes were well worked on. Anyhow even though it sucks as a RPG, it was a great experience like watching a very long animated movie, fighting the scenes and being able to *direct* the story. Story was overall pretty good and the introduction of the maker, fade, demons, magic and darkspawn was pretty good (little by little). I also liked what they did with the social placement of elves and mages/chantry, and how treacherous dwarven politics was. I played its DLC and expansions too, and was looking forward to DA2, thinking it should be at least as good, but from what I hear it sucks and way worse then DA:O. Did anyone play both and have an opinion of that? Looking at the stuff I like, do you have any titles to suggest, old or new? And what do you think of these games if you tried any: witcher 1,2 , ES5 skyrim, Gothic 3 ? PS: Oh also I guess I should mention games I hated: never winter nights, Fable 3 (arg I hated that one so much), and heroes 5 for the horrible camera/map problems it brought for the sake of being a crappy 3D. Also I cant stand a game where I can not customize the tactical dept of my char/team and just advance in game rather than making choices that could lead to awesomeness or disaster.
