So why not make a thread about RPGs, where we can discuss games we have played, games we would love to play and the games that was just an ok waste of time :)
I've been into RPGs my whole life, even before they came to computers. Early 90s (it's still awhile until i get 30!) I got a Dungeons and Dragons book (normal DnD, not ADnD), and it was one of the first books I ever read myself. A few months later when I started to grasp the concept, me and some friends decided to start playing DnD! I did that for a few years and when computer RPGs came around, I was hooked! Fallout and Diablo was the first RPGs I bought myself. Although I had played a few shareware titles like Realmz, The Odyssey and Prince Of Destruction.
List of RPGs I've played:
List RPGs I have to play and already own (damn you digital download sales!)
I'm pretty sure I forgot some titles while making this list.
Games I play now:
Vampire Masquerade Bloodlines.
I must just say, that I never expected this. I picked this one up ages ago on sale and really never got to play it.
Ever since twilight and true blood teenage vampire love has been all over tv and everything it really didn't feel right to play it :p
Then I decided to try it and port it, since it was already an older cider port from 2009 on this forum.
First I just thought I should play for an hour or two to check that it was a stable port, but then I got hooked!
I've been working late shift this week so I've had a lot of time on my hand, and I've played this game all the time (on my MBA)
Now I've played like 3-5 hrs every day since monday and I really can't stop until I finish this (and I'm still working on finishing up NWN2!)
I've heard the game isn't that long and should be like 20-25hrs, so I guess I'm more than half way.
Neverwinter Nights 2
I've been meaning to play this for a very long time, when it came out I did mostly play WoW (no more, although I pop in to say hi to guildies from time to time).
When I later got time to play (since WoW was not taking my time) I got myself Dragon Age and that took like almost half a year to complete (with all dlc and awakening).
When this game was on steam sale this summer I really kew that this was the time to get it! And then i bought it, played 1 hr and found it booring, what a mistake!
A friend convinced me that I just had to get thru the first hour of the game and it would all be so much better, and it did! I've been playing this 2-3 nights a week now for about a month and I do believe I'm halfway thru the main campaign. For a old DnD junkie this is really a fix! Game play is good, although before I found out to get the camera to behave like I like it was a bit annoying and I can't play this with anything other than mouse.
The story is so far very solid, with good in-game cinematics and acting. Compared to older DnD games it seems a bit restricting, with the non open world map, but it still maintains a bit openworld-ish (like Dragon Age). The first hour of the game was horrible, but the rest is great! I've also hard that the first expansion is supposed to be even better!
I guess I'll have fun with this until christmas!
The plan was that this game should be the one I would play on my MBA when I'm not home, or just wanna sit in the couch instead of in my office.
Now It seems Vampire M.B is taking this time, but I'm gonna pick this one right up again (with the speed im going thru VMB i'm sure it won't be too long)
edit: and by the way, www.gog.com has super RPG sale (all DnD titles) this weekend!
