Howdy folks,

I'm in need of a good RPG, played all the classics, Oblivion is now serving it's proper purpose as a drink mat, and I'm running out of steam.

So far I have looked at 3 titles;

  • Knights of the Old Republic
  • Titan Quest
  • Neverwinter Nights 2

KOTOR and NW2 are by far the more popular ones I have heard of, but which was has more content to offer? Oblivion was a massive flop for me as I prefer a lot more depth and content. Just thought I'd ask for you guys (and gals) opinions before I go spending in the morning.

Cheers!

Neverwinter Nights 2 probably has far more content than either of the others, combined with the in-game content, released community add-ons, and the fact that creating your own content for the NWN games is so easy it's insane. NWN/NWN2 are more traditional Advanced Dungeons & Dragons ruleset RPGs, but don't let the fact that it's D&D turn you off - most RPGs use D&D rules, they just don't all advertise it. ;)

KotOR's good, but much of the game is one-time only. Once you've been through an area, there's nothing there any more. You're pretty much railroaded through a linear line of quests, with the only choices being which part to do first. It may have a good storyline, excellent character development and enjoyable gameplay, but if you want more depth and content than the Elder Scrolls series, KotOR doesn't even come close to having a tenth of the overall content levels.

In fact, you'll be hard pressed to find any RPG with more content than an Elder Scrolls game, although admittedly Oblivion didn't really live up to TES's reputation for scale and grandiose.

Out of those three games, NWN2 would definitely be the choice to go for.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Knights of the Old Republic is supposedly buggy on PC, and the XBox graphics stink for both KOTOR 1 and 2. If you buy KOTOR 1, and want to get KOTOR 2 though, get the PC version so you can download the "KOTOR2 Sith Lords Restoration Project". It's a mod that fills in the good stuff that Obsidian had to leave out because the game was shipped too early. But beware, bugs are in KOTOR 2 as well. So you probably should get some patches. Obsidian made KOTOR 2 a very good game, but it just shipped too early, the Xbox graphics stink on KOTOR 2. Neverwinter Nights 2 is another Obsidian game and it got high ratings, of course so did KOTOR. KOTOR is a really good single-player experience. And although it is not overstuffed with content, you can at least play the game 12 different ways. That includes male and female models, light and dark side paths, on the three different character classes.

Awesome, thankyou very much for that mate, greatly appreciated! I may be going through the city later today, and will have to take a look. Might check out some user-created content before I go too, just to get an idea.
