PostSubject: Favorite RPG series.   Tue Dec 22, 2009 7:51 pm

Forgotten Realms (Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale etc) is my enduring favorite series. Partially because I grew up playing the games in the series, but for me, games that I don't lose interest in pretty fast are rare, and I still find myself going back to the older games in the series. I think I've played Icewind Dale at least 20 times, and I actually melted one of my Baldur's Gate II disks.

Elder Scrolls is a close second, I'm always amazed at the scope of the games. I find RPG's with a pre-defined line of gameplay extremely boring, and Morrowind especially is so free-form. You can play through it 50 times and never have the same storyline.

I can't stand the Final Fantasy games. They're so constrictive. I have to admit, in terms of graphics, FF is unbeatable as far as RPGs go, and the gameplay really is fun. But after about an hour I've had enough. I feel like I have no control.

I like the older Final Fantasy games along with the first Tactics one though

RPGs all about the story, so FF is my favourite series by far.

Breath of Fire is a great series, with 4 being the best RPG outside of FF. Ar Tonelico (though there's only 2 of these), Shin Megami Tensei, Disgaea (the pinacle of tactical rpg play)... quite a few other JRPG series. Lets not forget Pokemon.

... can't say any western style RPGs really keep my attention besides Demon's Souls, and that was produced in Japan.

Elder Scrolls and Star Wars: KOTOR

Most JRPG's bore me too tears because you usually have almost no decision making, although I love Final Fantasy, Super Mario RPG, Tales Of, and a few others

I hate final fantasy. I Dont think i have really explored the genre enough to have a favorite, but from what I have played, Fallout wins by far

Platinum trophy within 5 hours of downloading The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned. Great game, especially co-op.

I'm a bit fan of both the FF series and the Elder Scrolls.

My friend is paying a rediculous amount of money to import a copy of FF13. Not that he understands a word of Japanese. I shall report once I get to have a go.
