What is your favourite PC RPG Game?

    I have played a lot of PC RPG games over the years and liked a number of them for different reasons. My guess is that other people feel the same and I am curious about what makes a good game from other peoples point of view.

    For instance I played and enjoyed Warcraft, but many people don't agree it even is a RPG game and I see their point.  Similarly something like Elder Scrolls: Oblivion is definitely a roleplaying game and has great graphics but has other issues that make it less than perfect.

    So, what is your favourite PC RPG game and why?

      I have a lot of favorites, but they make me feel old smile For the recent releases, I think I liked Dungeons Dragons online & Eternal Eden the most. DDO is just plain fun, and EE had a really charming story.

      Been awhile now, but Baldur's Gate was great.  I'm glad some listed Diablo II because that was fun.  I still play Dark Age of Camelot and never tried WoW.

    My favorite Vampire Bloodlines: The Masquerade because it allows you to select the vampire clan, traits and has a different ending depending on the vampire you choose

    I'll go with the Diablo series by Blizzard Entertainment.

    I have them all. The original Diablo, the expansion "Hellfire", then Diablo II, and the expansion for it as well - "Lord of Destruction".

    It started a whole new era for RPGs. Which, spawn off many titles.

      Diablo is a classic, in its various versions.  It is a type of game that has been copied many times, but Blizz do it best.  My only complaint with it is the pace of it...occasionally I like to watch the sun go down and have a laugh with online friends.  Diablo ain't that kinda game. ;-)

    Dungeon Siege II.
    Diablo was fun when it first came out.
    I haven't played enough RPG or any newer ones to be a good judge of RPGs.
    Warcraft's an RTS, don't know of anyone who classifies it as RPG.

    1. Dense profile image76
      Denseposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Ditto Hellfire. Diabo II was less fun for me.
      My love of accumulating Gold Coins in RPGs like Diablo has brought me to Dungeon Siege II and then Mafia Wars and finally Hubpages where I drool every few hours getting a kick out of seeing the Gold Coins dropping into my Adsense account.
      It's not much really at the moment but you get the picture. smile

      Warcraft can be an RPG if you want to play it that way, it is just that most don't. There are full blown RP servers... 

      I mainly played on PvE servers as I didn't want the PvP to get in the way of other stuff, but I have done Arena/Endless BG's and world PvP at times too.

      By "Warcraft" I mean "World of Warcraft" and not the battle game.  smile

    Nexus, the Kingdom of the Winds is my favorite RPG ever. I used to play it a long time ago but I used to live on that game. It's a shame no one really knows about it.

    You mentioned Oblivion and that it has flaws. Well, if you want the oblivion experience without the Oblivion flaws, and a much deeper spell system, go with its older brother, Morrowind.
    I still play it from time to time despite its age.

    But for me, the best PC RPG of all time would have to be Baldur's Gate 2. I'm surprised nobody has mention it. The story is amazing, and beautiful and makes one feel almost every emotion possible by the end of the game. The voice acting and art are perfect also.

    The diablo series also ranks highly on my list. Miss my 1.09 buriza and titan's revenge amazon.

    1. Ainarand profile image57
      Ainarandposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yep, I still have a copy of Morrowind around somewhere but it is not installed anymore.  It is a great game, despite its age. 

      Diablo is awesome to play, but sometimes i want a bit more thought and less *Zap zap, pow pow*  smile

      Agree also that Baldur's Gate is a great game that is mostly ignored.

    Hard to choose one, so I'm going with the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series.

    1. Ainarand profile image57

      Fallout is great.  Honestly dont know if I prefer 2 to 3 or not.  Fallout 3 is "prettier" if you get my drift (can post holocaust ever be pretty?), but Fallout 2 is good for its simplicity.

    mrpopoposted 7 years ago

    I think my favourite is Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Good gameplay, intriguing story, all set in the realm of Star Wars. What more can you ask for?

    A friend of mine recently recommended another RPG from the same makers of KOTOR, Bioware. It's called Jade Empire, and though I never played it my friend said he liked it even more than KOTOR.

    Speaking of Bioware, they've come out with yet another RPG, called Dragon Age: Origins. It has lots of great reviews for the PC version, and decent reviews for the 360 version.

    Here's a trailer for it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNWppHev3ZA

    Warning: It's pretty violent (18+)

    1. Ainarand profile image57
      Ainarandposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Never really got into KOTOR.  I have a mate that seems to have played everything and he loves it.  He tried to get me to play it more, but real life keeps getting in the way... smile

        mrpopoposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Ah yes, that darned real life... why can't we live in a Star Wars universe? tongue

        Actually I never even beat it, I wanted to start fresh but I still haven't gotten around to it. It's installed on my brand new Acer, just waiting for me to play it... once I get some time I'll get into it again smile

    Wow so many to choose from. I loved the old Baldur's Gate series - but recently have found perhaps three that are in fact better than this series:

    Dragon Age - from the makers of Baldur's Gate - has great graphics and sound on the PC-  a very very good plot and an intrigued moral based system that will change the plot as you go - very replayable.

    Divinity II: another really good moral based story, with excellent graphics and an intriguing system - really BAD ending though.

    The Witcher - one of the most atmospheric RPGs I've played - now they have an 'improved' version out it is definately by far one of the best RPGs I've played.

    There are many others too - Drakensang - Oblivion , Fallout 3

    1. Ainarand profile image57
      Ainarandposted 7 years agoin reply to this


      Yeah, the Dragon Age series/expansions are great.  Witcher is something I have on my Amazon wishlist but my girlfriend isn't taking the hint.  smile

  16. Origin profile image60
    Originposted 7 years ago

    Dragon Age is a good modern day RPG. If you want to go old school, get Daggerfall, it's freely available (it was released by publisher to the public for free since 2009 or so). It's also the largest RPG to date, and Morrowind is only 0.01 the size of it. It has 6 different endings.

    Snippet from Wikipedia


  17. Len Cannon profile image90
    Len Cannonposted 7 years ago

    Probably Planescape: Torment.  The engine is pretty creaky and the battles aren't fun like they are in similar titles that came along later like Baldur's Gate 2, but it really allows you to play anyway you want.  The story is also pretty ambitious and it isn't afraid to make the players read.

  18. vaguesan profile image83

    Planescape has an insane story, and a great atmosphere. Although I have to admit I never played through it completely. I should go back and try finishing it. Although right now im balls deep in a play through of baldurds gate 2. Soloing it with a fight/mage/theif  this time around.

    I did most of my RPG gaming on consoles, so I haven't really played all that many PC RPGs.  However, of the ones I've played, I think that Fable was my favorite.

    Definitely Knights of the Old Republic, both 1 and 2. I have a soft spot for Jade Empire too.

    Inkypenposted 6 years ago

    I wouldn't consider Diablo, in all its incarnations, an RPG but rather a hack-an-slash rpg title. I am not sure it has many traditional RPG elements, nor do Call of Duty or Far Cry 2 for that matter though I still enjoy the latter's open world.

    Stuff released by Bioware certainly has a place in any "Best of" or favourite lists, like Neverwinter Nights or Baldur's Gate (both titles actually.)

    My personal favourites are Morrowind and Oblivion though. Despite the lack of multiplayer features it has an immense modding community and the scope for Role-play becomes endless. Then there are the huge worlds to explore. Oh, and I've also picked up Drakensang which seems really good.

    Knights of the Old Republic was the first RPG I played and my favorite.  I think it's partly my favorite because it was my first; I had nothing to compare it to.  I loved it for the story, or the stories rather, from the overarching main story to the small stories you'd learn about people you ran into, to the stories of your expanding crew.  I also loved the Star Wars element, which allowed for a rich background.  And I loved all the little things, the dialogue, the saving mechanism, the inventory, the combat mode. 

    I have to admit that I haven't played a lot of the ones other people mentioned.  But I also have an intense, unprovoked dislike of isometric projection.

    Baldurs Gate 2 - just for its total immersion and quests.

    A close second is Planescape Torment, even better now with mods and patched to allow it to be played at higher resolutions.

    Deus Ex is a close third - simple an amazing game for me

    Knights of the Old Republic without a doubt for me. Kotor 2 was good too, but it still can't compare to the first.
