have you tried " The Witcher " ?? it's sorta like AC + Oblivion Combat system is a fresh change from Oblivion, but some stuff may get boring after awhile. It's based more on a linear Job path than letting you choose to be a hunter/warrior/assassin in oblivion.
Yes, witcher was fun I bought it right when it came out. Really cool game...finished already and Im not going to pact with Scoiatel or whatever. But I will play it again when it's not that fresh in my mind.
Another game just came to mind, "Dark Messiah". It has an awsome singleplayer but with crummy replayability and worse multiplayer. It's one of those hack 'n' slash games with magic. I loved it but it's one of those love/hate games.
Dark Messiah indeed has great singleplayer (though to understand the whole story you should also play Heroes of MM 5 + its two expansions which are prologue for DM's story). Only problem with DM is that it gets repetitive fast (dont get me started about the kick which is best weapon of the game...) and that its short. But its much fun to play it through once and maybe twice to test different character development.
If you like RPGs then I would recommend definately to play something from Bioware, like Neverwinter Nights or if you can find the older ones then Baldur's Gate series is a must and don't forget Planescape Torment! If you like WW2 then you could try out Red Orchestra or if you own BF2 go try Forgotten Hope 2 mod, its really nice if you can stand the sand. One oldie I found great was Vietcong, it has such a great athmosphere that many newer games lack nowadays.
Neverwinter Nights... is that an MMORPG? I don't really like those =( people get so obssessed with being powerful and rich. they totally forget what the meaning of "role-playing" is... Thats why we stick to oblivion more :D
Dark messiah done and seen all the stuff that can be seen, I played heroes but ended when my favourite red armoured lizard riding character had to play along with elves... Never winter nights is cool game but a bit linear and not MMORPG really...obssesion with gold and power usually is part of the roleplaying, believe me I have lots of paper games behind me.
Now I would really appreciate if someone gave me hand with this... I bought orange box, installed and steam automatically updated it...why can I only get HL2 working? Other contents just don't work... I feel like noob.
I didn't buy the orange box but i have heard a lot of not-so-very-nice-more-like-evil-kenniving-comments-by-people-who-get-paid-too-much-to-sit-around-all-day about steam, apparently a lot of random stuff like this happens.
Yeah and it really pisses me off, I didn't buy orange box to play F. HL2 only, which by the way I finished already.
I never had any problems with steam, what exactly do you mean by you can only play HL2? Like what happens when you try to play a differen't game that came with Orange Box? Are you sure Steam finished updating the other Orange Box games yet?
