JCarter426;4262012I myself will be enjoying Mass Effect come May. :)
Ah yes, the impending PC release! About time I say. Oh Bioware, how we adore your fine works (what with the majority of them being PC based games):bows: As for what games I'd recommend.... well, the toplisters have been said already. - Baldur's Gate II (Try and get your hands on the entire series, it's worth it!) - NWN (and all expansions and any premium - purchasable - modules you can) - NWN2 (Yes, I do recommend it despite the naysaying I've seen from others) - Jade Empire (What can I say, I really enjoyed it and the combat system.) - Fallout Series (Yes, even Fallout Tactics, but not the console game.) These games you'll see on the majority of RPG games top picks, have a couple of things in common..... Bioware and Obsidian, harkening back to the days of Black Isle Studios! As for Sci-Fi RPG games specifically..... there aren't us many as there are Fantasy set ones. Yet again though, the Fallout series is always good. (Fingers crossed Fallout3 will be worth the wait!) - Mass Effect (Like JCarter, I'm waiting until May.) - Anachronox (If you can get your hands on it.... I liked enough to say get it!) Then there are another type of game that's RPGish, with other gametypes thrown in. - X-Com series (Old games, but they still "do it" for me ;) ) - UFO series (Similar to the X-Com series, but much more recent) - Fallout Tactics (Yes I've mentioned it before, but it is not solely an RPG, more a squad based tactical RPG set in the Fallout "universe".) Of course, there is also Deus Ex, and Deus Ex: Invisible War - FPS+RPG (Invisible War wasn't as good imo, but good as a game on its own.) That's about all I can list off the top of my head. There is another alternative however..... not strictly legal technically speaking, but you could try andonware games. -Games that have been more forgotten about, but are still under license from publishers and developers. They normally require something like DOSBox to run under modern Operating Systems. (If my information concerning Abandonware games is against the rules, would a Moderator or Staff Member please state so in this thread. If necessary, edit the abandonware information out of the post.)
Hey Fyurii thanks for you reply! I happen to have one of the old X-com games, but unfortunately it runs waaay too fast on my computer. I've tried one of those programs to slow down DOS games, but it just doesn't work as well as I would wish. A shame really. Man I have a lot of games to collect now :P
If they're not commercially available and never again will be, and have essentially been written off by the developers, then abandonware is absolutely fine.
I'd also recommend X: Beyond The Frontier (with it's expansion pack X-Tension) and X2: The Threat. They're not KotOR-like in any sense nor are they RPGs (technically), but having a nice nifty sandbox label on them means you'll get as much enjoyment and as much (or as little) gameplay as you want out of them, which the galaxy editor only enhances once you learn how to use it. They don't call it "21st-Century Elite" for nothing, and Elite was without a doubt, "the shit".
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
Galaxy Editor? That sounds pretty interesting..

Amen to that!
