Title says it all. What do you think is the best FPS RPG hybrid from any gen?
Personally, I'd have to go with either Deus Ex: HR, or Bioshock.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
Yeah, I don't think Bioshock really counts, does it? I guess my pick is Borderlands. I recently bought Fallout 3 and it seems pretty solid from the tiny bit I have played, but I still want to beat Dead Space 2 and then Resistance 3 before I go back into it. I don't have a lot of time for long games like that these days.
My problem with the Borderlands' RPG elements has to due with the games' total lack of active skills (each class has a grand total of one) and its overuse of passive skills. As any isometric ARPG fan knows, there's nothing more boring than a skill tree with nothing but passives.
My friend, while System Shock 2 has these elements, I would class is separately as survival horror. The best one. Obviously.
and you'd be half right I guess. It's officially labeled as action RPG surivival Horror. It's a bit of a weird one
I'd pick Bioshock but I don't know if that qualifies either
Depends a bit. Are we talking FPS/RPG hybrids? or first person RPGs? I do make the distinction between them, as in System shock 2 being a first person RPG, Deus EX being an fps/rpg Hybrid.
if it is only hybrids, then Deus ex, followed by HR and Bioshock.
if it encompasses RPGs that are in first person:
4) Fallout: New Vegas
3) Deus Ex: HR
2) Vampire the masquerade: Bloodlines
1) System Shock 2
