The recent Fallout games on the other hand didn't have any of those problems. The worlds were full of characters and interesting quests, but at the same time you could go exploring and find interesting things that were off the beaten path. The story in both the main quests and the side quests were interesting. And the game was fun to play. Also, you can pick up both New Vegas and 3 for less than Skyrim.
superjawes wrote:Hehe, that's true. I actually didn't think about all the leveling up and advancement, and all the character customization. (‘◇’) I guess it is pretty RPG-y, although there's very little choice in terms of story progression, but then, if that was a requirement to be an RPG then all those JRPGs would have to be thrown out. (*・艸・)Saints Row 3 has a lot of RPG elements...and that's really where RPGs (outside of JRPGs) are going. Those elements make games more compelling.

Voldenuit wrote:Me too! I started TES with Morrowind, and I loved how strange and alien the island of Vvardenfell was, especially the bizarre Telvanni structures. I went back and tried to play Daggerfall, because my elder brother sneered at the "console-ized" and simplified mechanics of Morrowind compared to the earlier game, but I couldn't get into it -- he insisted I was just objecting to the simpler graphics and clumsier gameplay, but it was really the boring generic medieval fantasy setting that made me lose interest. Fast-forward to 2006 when I was in highschool; he was nuts for Oblivion (mostly for technical reasons, since it was pretty amazing when it came out), and while I enjoyed the game, I found it much less interesting than Morrowind. Fast-forward again to Skyrim and we've once again flip-flopped, although we both really like the game and agree that considered objectively, Skyrim is the best of the TES saga.I did however really like Skyrim, to the point that it's my favorite Elder Scrolls game so far. My problem with Oblivion was that the game was lacking in character compared to Morrowind and Skyrim and as a result felt more bland and generic.

(;ﾞ°´ω°´)I just recently went back and played Fallout New Vegas again and really enjoyed it. I had never played the DLC before and thought it added a lot to the game (especially Dead Money).

Losing track of time is a good sign I am going to like a game. Seriously, I sat through the sun going down and not notice till I realized I needed to use the restroom and discovered the room was totally dark. If it can hold my attention like this its going to be good. I went and picked up the three DLC's well.
Vampire the Masquerade
Baldur's Gate 1 & 2
Icewind Dale 1 & 2

allreadydead wrote:There is an enhanced version of Baldur's Gate, called Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition (D'oh). It's $19.99 and you will have no excuses to quit in the middle of it. Because;
1. It's a classic.
2. It's not JUST a classic, It's Baldur's Gate.
3. It has fancy graphics now but good ol' story telling and everything there.
4. Did I mention it's TEH Baldur's Gate ?
While you are at it, buy D&D anthology pack so you will get Icewind Dale series too

It won't even run Doom 3.What I want to know about this, that I cannot find online, is if it will run on W8 x64 with Intel HD3000. They say 'NO' Intel graphics, and relate that loosely to OpenGL 2.0 support, but I wonder if that information is just outdated. I'd love to get this running on my lightweight laptop.
