Hello, I'm new here :cya: and I was wondering if you guys could give me some game suggestions. I'm looking for an Action/adventure/rpg game with decent graphics, a decent storyline and an exciting combat system (maybe arcade style with combos and stuff). I own an Intel Celeron , 2.8GHz 1Gb RAM and 256 Mb VRAM. Tried Oblivion but it works like shite on my system (really laggy). Anyone got any ideas?

First of all: Hi! (You can make an introduction-thread in the Introduce-yourself-part of the forums if you like) Perhaps you would like Jade Empire? Still sort of close to Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2, just playing in a phantasy world based on medieval China... But the fighting system is centred around action (other than KotOR 1+2).

Actually I considered Jade Empire but I read the combat system on the PC version was very poor. I just loved both KotOR games so even the fact that they compare well is a big plus but is the combat in JE just button mashing (pressing the attack button 30 times until the enemy's dead) or is it more complex than that. I find joystick shattering combos very rewarding and although I gather that the console version was the granddaddy of uberness in that chapter, things like that usually don't translate well from console to PC. Also, I doubt it would run decently on my computer as the requirements seem similar to oblivion's.

I'd recommend getting your hands on Deus Ex. It's a cult classic and combined RPG elements and FPS really well. It's a damn awesome game in terms of story and gameplay, provided you can stand the 9 year old graphics.

Then again, I recommend that to anyone who asks me...

First of all I would like to say welcome to the forum, I hope you are planning on hanging around for a some time, always nice to see new faces.

Now to the topic, have you considered Mount and Blade? It is a fun combat system and can be really addictive once you get past the learning curve, and it should run perfectly fine with those specs. I imagine it is rather cheap as well.

Ice, I'm actually looking for something melee as opposed to FPS

Nazoa, I've played the M&B demo and it was ok but I was looking for something with a consoley(yes, not a word) combat system. Most Action/RPGs have one attack button and you just press that until everything's dead. Some have tried to make the system more complex, like fable with its blocking, or, indeed, M&B with the whole "more swing, more damage" thing, but I'm looking for something you really feel you could play better using a joystick.

On a different note, have you ever noticed there are no sports RPGs? Sure, FIFA tried something with the whole Be a Pro mode but it's a far cry from a genuine sports RPG

Aleks, you can easily play Deus Ex by going meelee.

On another note, I guess if you wait a while, dragon age from bioware should come out soon.

Another option that had combos was Vampire: Bloodlines

I just wanted to say: if you play on the easiest level, button-mashing can get you through the game I believe... but it's really about: 1. choosing the right style of fighting like (I don't know the original english names, so I'll just translate :D ) Thousand Cuts, Leaping Tiger, Heavenly Wind, White Deamon, Staff, Sword, several transformations and more styles of which I can't remember the name. :lookaround: 2. good timing. If the bad guy with the big staff jumps at you holding his staff high above his head, why not greet him with a nice kick directly into his face? :D Also, I once had a computer with poorer specs as yours and it still looked good. :nodding:

I don't know about you threadstarter, but lately, mostly every game requires you to hit the attack button at least 5 times for something to die. Be it shooting, slashing or even using a spell (unless you hotkey). You can try Oldblivion, its a tool or mod for allowing "lesser-end" hardware play Oblivion. Plus, based on the screenshots it sure as hell looks the same and as awesome except for the HDR effects, skies and water. Oldblivion <-- Screenies for you to consider.

Wow, that looks really good, I could have used that when I had a crappy PC
