VAMPIRES THE MASQUERADE BLOODLINES (PC).
Cant wait for VTMB 2.
Zelda II - The adventure of Link. This was for the 8-bit NES and a lot of people didn't like it because it played very different than the original great Zelda. I loved the original Zelda but this one I just really spent a lot of time playing and loved it. A lot of this is nostalgia but this is my favorite RPG of all time.
Another old RPG that I don't hear mention lately but was great for it's time is Cosmic Fantasy 2 for the TurboGrafx-16 CD.
Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn. Perfect balance of story and combat, with a huge world packed with interesting quests and a huge diversity of scenery and enemies. Party members that had their own motivations, and could leave or fight you if they were displeased. Tons of spells and abilities at your disposal. This was Bioware’s last game before they started overusing fake choices so much, and IMO they’ve never and will never make a game this great again. Every few years I install from from disks and play it again, and get sucked in all over again.
I understand the enhanced edition got console ports recently; though I can’t imagine it controlling well at all without a mouse and keyboard, anyone who hasn’t experienced Bioware’s masterpiece should try it out.
I genuinely couldn't say. I have such fond memories from games like Chrono Trigger, KotOR, FF6/7/8/9, Mass Effect, etc. I think I have to say FF7... Not because it's the be-all-end-all, but because that was the game that got me heavily into RPG's. My bro and I used to bug my Mum and Dad every weekend to take us to rent the game for a few days.
Ultima 7 has always been my favourite rpg. It needs to be completely remade though, the many aspects of the gameplay hasn't aged well.
For consoles my favourite RPG was Final Fantasy 2 on the SNES. Both Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross were really good also.
