I'm looking to kill a little time for a while following a break-up (it was for the best). Can anyone recommend a great RPG? I've played Knights of the Old Republic and thinking about playing that again (although I'd have to buy it again...idiot me). I've also been looking at Elder Scrolls, but I'm just so familiar with Star Wars. I was also thinking about Lord of the Rings but don't really see much out there, although their Return of the King action game looks intriguing, but it's not an RPG.

I have been playing oblivion for the past couple of months. So much to do and I feel I can go at a slow pace which is great with my limited time.

Definitely 2 of the best ones named. I am playing both right now, Oblivion and NWN Diamond. If I had to chose one I would certainly go with Oblivion. However, it might depend on the type of RPG you like. It looks like from your other choices you would love Oblivion. NWN is set up to play kind of like the older D&D games like the Baldur's Gate series. My only beef with Neverwinter is that they went from fairly realistic graphics in BG to bulky looking, bobble-headed, less realistic but pretty graphics. Oblivion bolsters unmatched, crazy, all out mind boggling graphics and puts you behind the character so to speak. I like that. However, the coding in the game in some ways is a little "scripted" I guess you could say, or perhaps, "cheesy"....but not too bad. I'd still say it is the best game I've played so far, and I've played a lot. Half-Life 2 falling in second (not an RPG though). The thing with Oblivion is this, when I first got it I was extremely disappointed because the graphics were a joke....that's because my computer sucked. I had to go out and upgrade my RAM immediately. With a couple of upgrades it now looks great, but I still cannot run it at 100% of its' capacity. So, in sum, if you don't have close to a 3 Gig processor and a 1 Gig RAM with a DVD ROM I would probably wait on the Oblivion until you do. I wish I had more than that myself. NWN is always a good choice. Good Luck!! :thumbsup:

What I do not like about the NWN games is they are very linear, maps included. At least in the BG series, though the plot was pretty linear, you could explore the maps as you see fit.

I would get either The Elder Scrolls Chapter III: Morrowind or Chapter IV: Oblivion.

I personally found Morrowind better than Oblivion. (And you can get it for 20$USD at Best Buy)

Thanks...and I'm not worried about my rig handling a game like Oblivion, it's got plenty of power. Give you an idea, I'm able to play FEAR with almost everything maxed out.

I suggest Oblivion, Neverwinter Nights 2, Baldur's Gate (Old School, either the original or Shadows of Amn), Icewind Dale (If you like hack n' slash), X3: Reunion (If you like space-based simulation mixed with an RPG), and Jade Empire (A MUST PLAY if you like Knights of the Old Republic).

Freelancer is okay. I would have liked a little more depth in terms of gameplay, that's how I got hooked on the X-Universe with X2: The Threat and X3: Reunion. Is the Neverwinter Nights Diamond collection only the expansions for the original NWN or does is include NWN2?

Is that game as in depth as people say it is? Say, more in depth than Guild Wars?

EDIT: On the original topic, Guild Wars is a good MMORPG....easy to dump a lot of time, and all three of their games that are out are all connected (can go from the first released game to the second to the third). I like it and dump probably to much time into it.

Edited by stevealmighty, 05 June 2007 - 08:35 AM.

War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

There really is an incredible amount to do. It is completely non-linear, which I love, but others do not.

For example, I have put at least 15-20 hours in and I haven't even started the main quest.
