Hey guys I started playing Skyrim again and was starting to wonder, "is there an RPG better than this?" So that brings us to the discussion here. What is your idea of an ideal RPG? If you know of any that fits another person's description, tell them what its called. Also, what is the best one that you have played?

I personally love Skyrim because all of the customization options and the combat system. I also like how you almost never run out of things to do.

Here is what I like to see in games:

  • Customization is a must. I also like armor changing your appearance (some games don't seem do this :?)
  • I also like being able to do everything with one character.
  • Honestly, I'm not a fan of when it asks me to pick stat upgrades, because I always feel like picking the wrong thing early on will never end well. I do, however, like picking skill upgrades. (in terms of skyrim, remove the pick health, magika, stamina upgrade. Keep the constellation thing.)

Dark Souls is the best.

Although I feel as if Skyrim is the best RPG, it just has a few issues to fix.

I forgot to mention I like decision affecting what happens later on. And I like fantasy in my RPGs, not guns.

Do any games fit my description?

Dragon Age should be up your ally. Also Witcher 2 should be a good choice

Dragon Age is from 2009, but it looks like it came out in 1989, and The Witcher 2 came out last year, I think.:P

I looked up the witcher 2. Apparently there are a lot of nude scenes, so my mother would most likely not approve.

I looked up dragon age 2. I think I played the demo a while ago and didn't enjoy it :(

The biggest complaint I've heard about is the lack of variety when it comes locations. I've been told the majority of the game takes place in a single city. Is this true?

yeah, but there are many locations in it, also there are two big places outside the city with main and side quests. But i don't really mind it, because the story makes sense for it to be in the city. So just ignore those complaints

It doesn't sound much different from Origins. I only remember four main cities, and then there was the wilderness. How is the story?

It's a space game, obviously. It's a fantastic third-person shooter, and an even better RPG: And one of the coolest things is your decisions carry over through each game. The game focuses largely on character development and dialogue interactions which can change missions dramatically....

However, the ending was rubbish. This is a game where the journey is more important than the destination, keep that in mind if you play it.

Now everyone else take over and tell him how great it is.:P

Also I'm not sure if I want another shooter....

It's more of a story-driven RPG. I was just saying the shooting mechanics are solid.

You don't like ME3 as much? I like ME2 slightly more than ME3, but both are great.

I also like GoW more than GoW. Can't wait to try GoW: Judgment and GoW: Ascension though.

I did. It was just acting funky. I'm sure if I played more I'd get the hang of it. I just don't want to spend all that money on something I might not enjoy. I just got Xcom and DBZ, so I'll be busy for a while anyway.

I have enough games too, I'm just waiting until New Year to blow through them. Right now I went through my collection, and this is what I plan to beat in the first month: Resident Evil 6, Journey, flOw, Flower, Deus Ex: The Conspiracy, Halo: Combat Evolved, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Crysis 2. I've played all but Halo, and I'll probably blow through Flower first.
