Hey everybody....... I love RPGs and am looking for a decent one I can play offline. I like fantasy style games but I suck at FPS(except for FF Crisis Core) so anything that has a kind of Might and Magic feel to it would be really cool. I have no real preference for RTS or turn based strategy, I like them both. Dragon Age looks pretty cool, except when I went to Can I run It, my system just squeaked by the requirements. Odd, because I have a very good gaming PC and this same site told me I couldn't run TS3,which runs like a champ on my system. I also have Windows 7 which doesn't play well with a lot of older games(even in compatibility mode) So, any ideas?

Dragon Age is pretty good (system requirementshere). If you can't run it you could try out other RPGs by Bioware such as their Neverwinter Night (NWN) series. Which is an other medieval fantasy RPG, using the D&D rule system.

They also made other RPGs such as their Stawars game "Starwars: Knights of the Old Republic" (KTOR). Personally I prefer medievalish fantasy games but to each his/her own ofcourse.

fallout 1 Fallout 2 Arcanum Lionhearth Baldur's gate 1 Baldur's gate 2 Planescape:torment

That about wraps up the big names.

If you're into western as opposed to Jrpgs you won't find better ones. And in my opinion most even low tier western rpg's beat the crap out of jrpgs.

The Baldurs Gate series are quite awesome indeed, an other Bioware pearl, but a bit dated (BG1 is from late 1998 and BG2 from late 2000). So that's why I didn't mention it, but if you don't mind old graphics though it's worth a shot as the gameplay is quite awesome IMHO, it's still one of my most favourit games/RPGs I ever played. :nodding:

Thanks. I got a bunch of coupons for Best Buy ( six monthes after they were due, but that is another rant) so I might go over there today and see what they have. Neverwinter Nights sounds very cool. I have heard good things about Baldur's Gate as well.

Never Winter Nights 2 isn't too bad either and a bit more modern than the classics mentioned so far.

I second the recommendations of Donutz. Dragon Age: Origins is a must-try if you can run it. But seeing as that isn't the case, I recommend you try out these games (I've played 'em (and still do) myself and don't regret a single minute):

-Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic & Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords -Mass Effect 1 & 2 -Fable: The Lost Chapters (PC) & Fable II (Fable II if you have an XBOX360, that is). -Jade Empire -Fallout 3

The list isn't it any kind of preferred order.

Here is what Dragon Age recommends: Video: ATI Radeon X850 128MB or greater NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT 128MB or greater

The fail I got was for my video card. Here is what I have: ATI Radeon HD 4350 with 512 MB of RAM. My sytem exceeded all other requirements. My video card also failed for the Sims 3 , which runs great on my system. I really like what I have seen about Dragon Age.............so can I run it with this card?

That card should be enough to run Dragon Age, maybe not at the highest quality settings though.

I'm not very familiar with that card, but isn't it a budget videocard which isn't really meant for gaming? It sounds like the videocard is indeed the bottleneck in your system.

*performs a quick google* Yep, it's labeled as "not very suitable for gaming" by various tech sites. So you probably can run DA but it don't expect to be able to run it on maximum graphics though. :(

Edit: google ftw:

i'm actually playing with a 512MB ATI Radeon HD 4350 (320-0839). If i play with your video settings, the fps goes too low, i have to turn of antialaising and put graphic on medium. what do you suggest me to do to improve it?
