Man.  This one is actually pretty tough.

It's a toss-up between Morrowind, KotOR (1 over 2, but 2 was still good) and NWN.

Morrowind: Expansiveness, infinite modability, high customization value
KotOR: Incredible storyline.  Lightsabers.  Force powers.  Fairly high customizability.
NWN: Good story, very high customization factor, familiar system

The downfalls?  Morrowind crashes too much, KotOR2 had a slightly shoddy ending, NWN's toolset is very annoying to learn to use.

However, there's one that takes the cake over any RPG I've ever come across: Fallout.  Post-apocalyptic cyberpunk RPG that's high-tech/lo-tech and extremely innovative.  The only thing it was missing was cheesey Japanophilic ads and messages and it would've been the perfect cyberpunk game.

Not really a big fan of the FF series.  It's all a bit overrated IMO.  I could never get into them as much as some other games.

Fallout DOS?  Do you mean BOS?  Unless you mean a Fallout game on MS-DOS, of which I didn't know existed and I'll have to get and use with DosBOX.  (Ugh.  Run-on sentence.)

I loved NwN, but I can't get it to run properly on my new PC. I'd love to play KoToR2, but that won't work either. I've been playing a lot of Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale and Fallout. I've also got Morrowind somewhere, but I'm not so keen on it - I don't like that I can aim perfectly at something, fire an arrow into it, and randomly miss. ESPECIALLY if the thing I just shot is so big it fills half the screen AND I saw the arrow pass straight through the creature model.

At least Elder Scrolls IV is changing that - no random hit/miss, and no random shield blocking - if your aim is good, you hit, and if you press the "block" button at the right time, then you ward off a blow with a shield. much beter.

To be honest, there hasn't yet been an RPG that has really met my standards for a really good game... the ones that come closest are horribly buggy sadly, and NONE of them have had the kind of graphics I'd want to see...

Yeah, that does irk me in Morrowind.  I'm glad to hear they're changing that in Oblivion.

yes. I love YOU.
Final Fantasy has consistently been the only RPG (series) i have been able to play without being bored to tears. It oozes playability, amazing storylines, beautiful landscapes (instead of the monotonous browns and grays of others), and is just all round awesome. And Final Fantasy 7 was the best.

I just got my hands on the english translated version of the first Star Ocean game in a ROM, and that game is pretty kickass. I'm going to have to go play SO2. The Lunar games have a special place in my heart as well.

I'm trying to remember other RPGs with combat like that, and I keep leaning towards Legend Of Dragoon, but I think that was more of just timing the buttons right.

But seriously; who else cried when Lavitz died?


I wouldn't shut up about it for a few days. I'd be walking around the house screaming "NOOOOOOO LAVITTTZZZZZZZZ."

Then my parents made me sleep out on the lawn.

I've never finished FFIII/VI, but it the parts I've played have been really good. I think I prefer Chrono Trigger. The beginning of that game is so... perfect. And returning there between different segments just... it's such a diverse game.

I loved KotOR. One of my favorite games. It was amazingly immersive - so much so that I was unable to play as evil - I felt bad and eventually lost interest trying to play it through again.

Generally, I find RPGs aren't polished enough for my tastes. If it has a level-grinding element without an action element I get bored (for example, Diablo 2 entertained me for a while because it had action and wasn't JUST an RPG) . That's why I liked KotOR - you were powerful enough just from doing all the quests. I only wish it had been done with the PC interface in mind from the beginning, or that it had been more carefully ported.

Deus Ex is one of my other favorite games, and I consider it at least as much of an RPG as any FF game.

RPGs that everyone liked but I couldn't get into:
Baldur's Gate
Planescape: Torment
Morrowind: Something (whichever one was on the XBOX, my brother had it.)

Morrowind. By far. I got so lost in that game. It had the single most in depth world I've seen in any game (and a lot of book series). It's probably the game that's taken the most of my time and I still haven't finished the main storyline.

Word. Morrowind is the best game I've played, as well as the best RPG. It feels like a real world you're running around in, and it seems like Oblivion is going in the same direction. Excellent.

The Might and Magic series was also entertaining when I played it.

Final Fantasy could never hold my attention due to it being turn based rather then real time.

I loved the gameplay in Icewind Dale II, but it was far too linear for me :(.

I'm hoping that Dragon Age is going to be awesome. As well as next The Longest Journey game, I hope that's cool.
