I started playing RPG's when Gauntlet first came out. I then graduated to Diablo and Diablo II followed by Icewindale.

I never had the chance to try out Baldur's gate. In fact, I skipped right over to the Neverwinter Nights series.

Right now I have a few PC RPG games on the go.

-Dungeon Siege and Dungeon Siege Ledgends of Aranna
-Neverwinter Nights platinum edition

Dungeon Siege is more of a hack and slash RPG. I find it is less serious and not as much work as Neverwinter Nights which, has more story plots and tasks to accomplish. Neverwinter is also a longer game.

One advantage for NWN is the abundance of modules that can be found online.

Both can be played online.Both can be played via LAN.

I'd recommend both of them to rpg players. It just depends what you are in the mood for.

I am tired of the games I have right now, actually, and am awaiting Oblivion with great anticipation. I have games going in Black and White 2, Baldur's Gate 2, Warcraft 2: Frrozen Throne, various modules in NWN, Call of Duty 2, briefly tried Hitman 2, recently beat F.E.A.R. and Gun, and love Sid Meiers Pirates. I am not playing any of them regularly or even often, just have games in progress. I am afraid I might not leave my dorm for a while when I get Oblivion though.....well, I will still go to class.

Oh dear Sway. It really is worth going back and playing Baldurs Gate 1 & 2. Trust me.

I think Baldur's Gate preceeded Neverwinter Nights did it not?

From what little I know, the interface is better but the plots are not as complex.

What could you tell me about the game that would make me want to go back?

I trust you Flark, I'm just curious since you're endorsing the game.

That's right.

Failing to recognising many of my 'amsuing' quotations should be enough on it's own... That aside, you'd be missing out on two of the all-time classic computer based RPGs. T'is true I swear! Interacting with the likes of Xzar, Montaron, Edwin Odesseiron or Minsc and Boo is essential conditioning for life here in the RPGC. If I had may way, proof of playing Baldurs Gate would be necessary in sign-up procedure.

Well you've convinced me Flark... Now I won't miss out forever. It's just a matter of time before I have Baldur's Gate in my possesion.

Actually, I was chatting on IM with a friend tonight and he said he was done with his copy and would gladly give it over next time we get together.
I'll have all the essentials then...

I just recently beat Dungeon Siege II. Fun the first time through if you're entertained by the hack-and-slash. Don't expect to be entertained at any length by the RP and storyline though. The game is pretty much linear.

If anyone has a PS2 i highly reccomend Shadow of the Collossus. Amazing game, very artfully done, and really makes a break from the ordinary.

Recently i picked up Galactic Civ II. Any fan of the galactic conquest / 4x games should definately pick this one up. It really reminds me a lot of Master of Orion II. It's what MoO III SHOULD have been. Very awesome ship customization features in there and there's a very wide spectrum of strategy involved.

And i'm suprised nobody here has mentioned Fallout 1 or 2. Baldurs gate is good, i'll give you that, but Fallout gets my vote for best RPG ever. But then again, if you're not a fan of sci-fi or post-apocalyptic mad-max settings you probably wouldn't enjoy this one. Anyone else familiar with the Fallout games?

I've got Fallout 1, but unfortunately it doesn't work anymore since I upgraded to Windows XP. You're right though, it is an awesome game! I was actually thinking about Fallout when I came up with the idea of my 102AA Surface Recon RP.

If you like Fallout, you might like some of the Julian Gollop games. Have you played any?

Fallout 2 is better than Fallout 1 (in my opinion, but i loved them both) and i'm pretty certain 2 runs on XP. I think I recall running it before my last reformat. If not, you can always try XP's self emulation to run it.

I'll have to take a look at your 102AA Surface Recon thread, i've kinda skipped over that one for the time bieng because it sounded like a military spec ops RP.

No, i've never heard of Julian Gollop. What are the names of the games?

Here's links for some of his abandoned (free) games. They're a little more strategy than RPG, maybe tilted more towards Fallout Tactics than Fallout 1 or 2. Definately worth taking a look at though.

X-Com Enemy Unknown

X-Com Terror from the Deep

X-Com Apocalypse

Laser Squad

Laser Squad (8-bit (Java))

Laser Squad Nemesis (Demo)

Rebelstar 1 & 2 (8-bit Spectrum (Java))
