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.

Borderlands and Deus Ex so far. I have yet to play HR, but it looks awesome. Not Fallout or Bioshock.

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines and System Shock 2. And why do people keep listing Bioshock? It not a RPG, like at all.

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.

Fallout 3. DxHR is awesome (and probably the better game), but because its (really great cool) stealth component. Playing it as a FPS is incredibly boring...

I wouldn't say BioShock is RPGish enough to count, but it's definitely better than both.

Deus Ex. Haven't played Human Revolution, but the original would be pretty hard to beat.

MAss Effect is more a TPS, but by far the best rpg/shooter hybrid ever.

System Shock 2, any other answer is wrong. From this gen its probably Fallout 3 (I didnt play Deus Ex: HR yet though).

Deus Ex and Human Revolution.

BioShock felt redundant and got boring after a while, plus the ending was stupid.

It's between Deus Ex 1 and Deus Ex HR. I have not played HR yet, that's why i can't make a call yet, but i have played Deus Ex 8 times.

System Shock 2 Bioshock (if it counts, which if it does, makes it the best of all of them) Deus Ex Deus Ex HR Fallout NV (at least now they've patched it up) Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines Although it's a TPS/RPG hybrid technically, I'm just going to say the Mass Effect games as well.

Dues Ex: Human Revolution seems to be the factually based answer most of us agree on, that's right.

My friend, while System Shock 2 has these elements, I would class is separately as survival horror. The best one. Obviously.

Fallout 3/NV, or Skyrim one of my builds was exclusively archer and magic.

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.

The original Deus Ex.

@cfisher2833: I agree. I would add that holding that active skill till level 5 is a terrible design decision that I hope gets yanked in B3.

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

Bioshock is not a rpg.

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:

5) Bioshock

4) Fallout: New Vegas

3) Deus Ex: HR

2) Vampire the masquerade: Bloodlines

1) System Shock 2
