I am looking for a new rpg/mmo/mmorpg game to play and I'm not fond of skyrim since they got rid of the acrobatics and the fast running with endurance. Games that i've already played are: WoW, GW1 and 2, morrowind, oblivion, Dark Age of Camelot (there wasn't anyone online when i tried it lol). Just want a new game that will last a long time and I can enjoy. Suggestions?

32 HOURS? I beat it in.. Maybe 15 hours(What did I do wrong?).. I did both endings, did one, pressed continue at the start, did the other. I recommend that to you too.

Haha yeah you can tell i took my time with this game and enjoyed it.

I don't know what to say really, i did side missions and took my time exploring the area i was in. Not to mention every time i got detected i ran away and hid so i could go through the area all stealthy and sometimes i'd let the guards kill me so i could try again without being detected once. I saved A LOT and kept retrying areas by doing things differently until i was satisfied lol.

Just a lot of little things which helped increase my playtime. Also thanks for the tip i'll do that.

I don't think it was long enough to qualify as an RPG, an action-adventure is a more fitting title.

Witcher series Deus Ex GOTY and Human Revolution Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Fallout 1,2 and New Vegas Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series especially Kotor 2 As for MMO's hmm not sure DO NOT play Old Republic. It's a terrible MMO. You should definitely try the Age of Wushu trial since its a full fledge sandbox MMO. If you're willing you could always try SWGemu which is Star Wars Galaxies but ran by regular people and not Sony.

It also depends on what difficulty you're playing on. I always play on Give me Deus Ex, and my playthroughs last about 40 hours. I'm a completionist, so I did all the sidequests, found all there is to find. The game also has a lot of replay value. It's not just the endings that are different, you should also play it from the start to see how different decisions affect the outcome. On topic: Witcher 2; Skyrim.

Whilst WoW is an absolutely phenomenal and completely outstanding reccomendation, he's already played it. But fantastic game. Really excellent and greatly polished game.

I'm replaying the KOTOR series, and I'm having as much fun as I had the first time I played it. In my opinion it's a must play for any RPG fan, just give it some time since it is a little old.

 

If your looking for an MMO, try GW2 or LOTRO if you don't want to spend a boatload of money.

I'm really liking Risen 2: Dark Waters. It is a pirate themed, single player, rpg that almost feels like an adventure game at times. I spent around 14 Hrs playing it in 5 days, and I plan to continue the trend. The graphics are pretty good at times. I might give it another play through once I finish it, or I might scavenge the islands once I get my own ship; this will add to my playtime.

It may not be for you though, since you said you like fast running which Risen 2 doesn't have. You can only run in the game, get tired, and then normal run again. Risen 2 gets a lot of things right, for example, the difficulty, amount of enemies, immersive quests. The combat is fairly simplistic, so you might not like that either. But it doesn't bother me. The game has a lot going for it.

Although Skyrim is more polished, I like Risen 2 better because it is more immersive, and it feels new. I can understand how a minority of people may not like Risen 2, but it should still kill some time for you even if you don't love it. I usually don't like pirates that much, but I'm immersed in the game.

It seems like they've gone too childish with sh*t's of panda's. And they made all the weapons rediculously crazy with the dps. Idk, thinking about waiting for the elder scrolls online to come. Maybe that'll satisfy my hornyness for MMO's lol

While the stat inflation in WoW is outright absurd.

I see nothing wrong with the pandas and even if they are "childish" I see nothing wrong with that. Liking childish things does not make a person immature, but not liking childish things for the sake that they are childish, now that is immature.

I agree, I think the whole point of Mists of Pandaria was to add comic relief to the game after the ultra serious WotLK and Cat. It was just Blizzard's way of lightening the mood. Maybe the shift was too abrupt and that's why people didn't like it. Either way, I'm not among them.

Another useless and clueless idiot here. The only **** useless thing I see here it's you. Retarded. And you aren't forced to play Pandarens also and if you knew that Warcraft lore you won't be posting useless comments like this, useless idiot.

Chaos of three kingdoms. If you love the mythology of Ancient China and turn-based strategy games but want the ease of going mobile, this is a game you can conquer with relish.

Deus Ex HR is mostly a stealth game and thats the way the game was designed. You can go through the entire game only killing the bosses if you wanted to. Its still a good RPG though, levling up is meangiful and actually changes the way you play the game.
