Need your help guys, I want to play a good PC/PS2 RPG - something I can really get drawn into, preferrably with a party system and good storyline. I just don't know where to start, as it seems there's a lot of crappy RPG's out there.

I'm looking for a single player RPG, and not a cookie-cutter final fantasy type.

Any suggestions?

Icewind Dale 2 is pretty good stuff.

I thought Baldur's Gate and the sequels/expansions were fun.

try Xenosaga, it can get a little linear but it is not too typical an rpg and the story is good


You only truly lose when winning becomes more important than playing.

I've heard Morrowind is very good, but unfortunately I can't run it well enough to play.

Oh, and if you want a good one with a party system, other than the BGs, try Ultima VII.

I make a new vow, one weighed in experience and proclaimed with my eyes open: I will not raise my scimitars except in defense: in defense of my principles, of my life, or of others who cannot defend themselves. I will not do battle to further the causes of false prophets, to further the treasures of kings, or to avenge my own injured pride.

....

Legend of Dragoon?


....

Xenosaga?

....

For those who have not played Xenogears, Aginor is shamed by your continued consumption of his vital supply of air. Xenosaga is a decent enough series...

But for the wriggly thingsit that suggested LoD, even Aginor is not evil enough to suggest LoD to anyone. While the cutscenes were pretty and the gameplay was moderately fun, the SOUNDTRACK, the HORRENDOUS SOUNDTRACK CAUSED THE SOULS OF THE DAMNED TO PLEAD FOR AN END TO THEIR SUFFERING.

And the rest of us, too.

If you want a game that you can mute, LoD is fine. If you can't stand playing a game on mute, never... EVER play LoD.

Aginor, Sweet is thine name and sweeter still thine denouncement after 2+ years of obviously deep contemplation.

Well do I know the ravages pseudo-immortality plays on a being's sense of time and equally well do I understand the benefits of nuanced deep deep deep thoughts.

[Aside] Thoughts so deep as to stir the stillest bottoms of the deepest seas as they caress the depths of the mind.

Truly, your hate for Legend of Dragoon, which motivated such contemplation to craft your condemnation, is a great and powerful thing.

The distaste you must have felt in typing both its name and acronym (4 times) is an experience to be treasured and put on a mental shelf to be fondled at inopportune moments like some kind of obscene knick-knack.

Glorious must be your determination to better inform the reader as to the wrongness of others suggestions that you waited 2+ years patiently crafting a response. Which, in retrospect, might indeed be better served cold like your cold fiery vengeance.

And that bitter cold flame of anger and disappointment. An unending unwritten ode should be composed to to commemorate the time, place, and clothing you wore when first that emotion sparked.

If you haven't, pick up a copy of Dragon Quest 8.
