Hi, I'm new to RPG's and am looking for a great fantasy type one. Something where you go on quests, etc. I've played Fable I & II on Xbox, but I'm looking for something on PC now. I was thinking about Fable 3, but I'm hesitant to buy it as I've heard mixed reviews about it. Also, I'm using keyboard and mouse, so I need it to be a game that's controls work well with KB and M.

Dragon age origins,Witcher 1 and 2,Dragon age 2 and maybe elder scrolls:o blivion.I emphasize Witcher 2 and Dragon age origins out of all these as they are a must.

Sweet, and the combat system with DAO works well with a mouse? Or would it be better to have a 360 controller?

I'd suggest The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (older, worse graphics, better atmosphere and lore) or The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (newer, less buggy, more mainstream) as two excellent RPGs. They're much more expansive than DA:o  and they're a lot more dynamic. Whereas in DA:o  you have set quests and "no go" areas, Oblivion is one large living breathing world with very little barriers. It's possibly less polished than Da:o , but often regarded as one of the best RPGs ever made. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed DA:o , but I think from an RPG point of view, especially for someone just starting PC Gaming, Oblivion would be your best bet :)  it'll blow your mind (hopefully.)

Good luck, have fun with whatever you choose :)

I prefer the mouse and keyboard due to the many hotkeys you can assign.I usually use up to 6 abilities one after another so a 360 controller would be a bit of a hassle.As far as Oblivion goes,DA:o  has a better story but Oblivion as mentioned is much more open.I personally enjoyed DAO more though as Oblivion needed a big time investment to get into and I didn't have much time.

Fable 3 is a good game, it doesn't have much mixed reviews, almost all of them are good.

AND: What's with the big :o  for O ?

morrowind, oblivion, even fallout 3 (not fantasy but still a great game), Gothic III. These are all very large, open world games which i like. If you dont like games that take a long time to progress then you probably wont like these. The witcher is also good.

if you want to go old school try the Baldur's Gate Saga, u can get it at GOG both the original and then part 2 for $20. What I like about these games are that you can transfer your character from one game to the next. It also has a very good story line and you're not just leveling up 1 character but several.
There is also the Ice Wind Dale Series as well which is about the same but less depth that Baldur's Gate....Enjoy!

It's because we all write it;

Which creates the smiley :o 

Irritating or what? :p ff:

To reply to your comment about Fable 3, it does have good reviews, yet I can say that from my personal opinion (not that it's greatly valuable, but still...) Oblivion is far better :)

yeah, I feel its quite irritating and quite funny at the same time. I didn't like Oblivion much. Maybe its the combat. I felt it too bad. As for the other things in Oblivion, loved it.

The vanilla combat is poor. That said, you could mod it, or you could just deal with it, enjoying the other aspects of the game for the next few months until Skyrim! :D 

Hehe, TES is sick no matter what the shortcomings :)

Maybe Torchlight and Fate is about to come out with a 4th game in the series. Fate series is still my alltime favorite with Diablo series 2nd. Good adventuring.

If you enjoy star wars, I'd recommend Knights of the old Republic. Good story and more of a turn based than live action if you are into that.

Risen is another good RPG that I haven't seen mentioned. It's made by Piranha Bytes so I've heard it called the "real" Gothic 4 as opposed to Arcania. Divinity 2: The Dragon Knight Saga is an excellent game as well. Tons of value in that one since you get a remastered Divinity 2 plus the expansion for $40. I wouldn't even bother with Fable 3. It is extremely easy and therefore rather dull.

I haven't played fantasy RPGs in a while... The best one was Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Sure it's older than Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and the graphics are very dated, but the overall gameplay and storyline was far superior to Oblivion.

Maybe I'll pickup Dragon Age...

While Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas are not fantasy games, they are still very good RPGs. I prefer Fallout 3 to New Vegas.

I have played Fallout 3, only fallout 3 and not fallout, fallout 2 or fallout new vegas. Fallout 3 was a good game. I heard New Vegas isn't as good as its predecessor.

Dragon Age is a good game too, although I haven't played it.

I picked it up for like 5-7 bucks a few months ago. I actually didn't think it was that bad. A lot of the negative reviews were based on the bugs. And most of the bugs have been fixed.

For a bargain price I think its worth picking up. I got plenty of hours out of it.

I rented it for the 360 sometime ago, the bugs didnt seem so bad, but it was more or less the character interactions, the facial features and the storyline, it was all just seemingly lame and bland, I almost fell asleep 30 minutes into playing it lol

you really need to play fallout tactics, a old game, but a beast for its time, this game blew me away and I spent so many hours into it, its like a diablo3 interface with a "seemingly" open world

Yeah, character interactions and facial features could have used some work. Storyline was a little odd. I didn't get why they chose your sister? haha.

On top of that you played/tried the console version :D

Wow all these recommendations, several from Bioware and not a single mention of NWN2? The most customizable and epic RPGs ever made.

Slightly Older games,
NWN2, Witcher,
Elder Scrolls IV (didn't really like it, but was ok)
Fallout

Really old games,
NWN / IWD / BG2 / Diablo II

Newer games,
Witcher II
Dragon Age I / II

NWN2 tends to have a high learning curve due to its reliance on DnD 3.5E rules but is positively the most re-playable and customizable RPG I've ever played. The best part is you can bring a small group of your friends in with you, adds a whole different dynamic when you ratchet the difficulty to "Hardcore PnP rules" and try to get through the OC or expansions. And later you can just grab a custom module (or design your own if your into that) off the internet and play through them with your friends.

noone mentioned NWN2, because as far as gaming community is concerned, NWN2 was *** compared to NWN1. The right for the game were sold to another company that did a half-assed job with it. Yeah sure the story is about good, but has the game gotten better since NWN1, no it hasn't, sorry. You can get plenty of mods for NWN1, none of the features of NWN2 make it any better.

the graphic enhances are somewhat better, as far as the levels, they bore me to death, it just seems like its too much of a d@d game, bc the level designs were just poorly made imo, but yet I still beat it, and I own a castle, that my friends was worth playing till that part, so I wouldn't say that it is crap compared to the first, it just took a different direction or leap if you will

It played like a D&D game because it ~is~ a D&D game haha. And having played both versions in great depth as well as creating content for both I can say NWN2 beat out NWN1. The newer develops were given the source to NWN1 and they just expanded and updated the engine to more "modern" standards. That is all NWN1/2 are, just game engines designed to provide whatever content their fed. The developers then built the OC and over time the expansions as examples of what you ~could~ do. Players built so much more content that is available on the web. Everything from new class's and PrC's, new spells, new animations, new models, new rules and many many new levels and adventures. Its "re-playability" is unmatched by any other RPG by the simple fact that you can import content easily.

Which makes me wonder exactly how much "play" was actually done by AntiZig.
