Hi guys. Wasn't sure whether here or /v/ would be better for this, trying you guys first, will go there if no good answers.

I'm interested in video games based on traditional/tabletop RPG systems. Pathfinder is what i'm most familiar with, but i'm open to anything really. I just have a craving for a singleplayer environment to play with between sessions. Was supposed to be playing with my group tonight and 4/6 of them didn't show for various reasons.

I'd like some games in this genre i can play without having to depend on others showing up

Pic related is the most obvious one that comes to mind, but it's old, i've already played it to death. looking for something a little newer.

Any thoughts?

>I'm interested in video games based on traditional/tabletop RPG systems
(i) The goldbox games should be played by any RPG fan. As for the game(s), picture a blobber interface and a top down interface for the battles. Highly recommended.
(ii) The wizardry series (I-VI). Strictly a blobber series. The series will give you everything you would want in a blobber. Cartography from hell.
(iii) Might and magic - Island of Terra
These (i) - (iii) are essential and will bring you much closer to the RPG genre. Highly recommended!
>>
>>45095739
wait, wtf does blobber mean?

Also, all of those are even older than NWN2. Is there nothing relatively modern that's deserving of a recommendation?
Does anyone have an opinion on Pillars of Eternity?

Pillars was okay
I don't want to say it was bland, because it had a very particular flavor, but that flavor was kind of... dry and boring, I thought. The setting itself, the whole muskets-and-zweihanders-and-plate-armor-and-natural-philosophy. Eh.
A lot of the good /tg/ games are old. I've been playing the shit out of KotOR II for the past two weeks and totally forgotten how balls to the wall awesome it was.

A blobber is a map-painting game. You add blobs of your empire color to the map until it's all your color.
>>
>>45095809
>wait, wtf does blobber mean?
Your party moves as a "blob". As a octupus. The movement part is done in one turn. In combat you can assign different orders for your party members (tentacles).

>Also, all of those are even older than NWN2. Is there nothing relatively modern that's deserving of a recommendation?
Sadly, no.

This list is strange, half of it has nothing to do with RPGs.
Carmageddon, really?

trying my besat to look through, does it come in any larger size? although many of the things i havent played here seem a bit old. and i have played a lot more of that list than i expected.

Is there anything like NWN on a more modern engine? that'd be perfect. i've looked at dragon age by comparison and it seems to be dumbed down to hell
>>
>>45095136

Garbage. I'd go back and play all my favorite NWN1 modules from the Vault before I pick that shit up.

UnderRail any good?
>>
>>45097283
>UnderRail any good?
My answer would be no. Non-party-based RPGs as far as I am concerned are not worth it. If you do enjoy such games though, as in Fallout for instance, it is recommended.
>>
>>45097283
It has a lot of charm, but it's not particularly challenging. If you are going to play it, keep clear from the cancerous fanbase. unless you're looking for porn
>>
>>45097283
Yes. Unless you're a hardcore combatfag - but then again you wouldn't like any cRPG from this millenium. The mechanics, while nothing special, are decent enough for a solo game and it doesn't hold your hand like modern vidya always does. It feels a bit like a proper Fallout 3 in a Metro setting.

It wasn't. The gameplay sucked, and that fucking camera killed it, did it not? Sure the story and the characters were interesting enough, the gameplay though...

Have there been any games based on the pathfinder system?

I mean, other than pathfinder online, which looks like an abandoned project
>>
>>45097744
No.

Not really for the same thing OP is, but got a question that is kinda related to NWN series.

NWN 1/2 had this unique possibility of running persistent worlds that actually allowed decent RP - as it had DM client, editor, was moddable and allowed people to create worlds that made sense, had little immersion breaking abstract mechanisms as compared to MMO, playerbase big enough to have someone to play with but small enough so specific character could easily varve his place in the world and make himself a name. I had better RP experiences in NWN2 than i got at the gaming table EVER. Despite the fact that i hate D&D and FR, and most servers were running on those default NWN2 settings.

... but now it is almost dead, half rotten corpse with dwindling playerbase, not only in numbers but also in quality...

... So, is there anything else that could provide simmilar online experience? Existent or upcoming?
>>
Not based on a particular RPG, but Ultima Underworld is the perfect megadungeon.
>>
>>45097921
I am very interested in this question too.

Incidentally, there was a fairly recent game called Neverwinter, set in the same universe i believe. But IIRC it was an action/twitch game mostly about PVP, with giant oversized anime weapons. it looked shitty
>>
>>45097985
If you don't mind playing a 24- year old game that wouldn't challenge a SNES

Call me shallow, but i care about graphics to some degree. And the various advances in interface design that have been made over the decades
>>
I was a DM in a certain NWN2 server last year. There are still players but getting less and less with each month
>>
>>45095136

Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun Dragonfall and Shadowrun Hong Kong. Especially the last one.
>>
>>45097985
the graphics literally make my brain hurt, same for System Shock
>>
>>45098111
Dragonfall was fucking awesome. How is Hong Kong compared?

Better. Generally more refined engine, very strong story and characters. Stingier with the NuYen, so you actuully have to think about what you buy. You have to prioritize and comprimise instead of rolling in cash and buying top-tier everything. I really like the Hong Kong slums setting too.

There's a brand new Matrix system, but it doesn't appeal to all players. There's a few very vocal complainers around. Personally I like the new Matrix - it can be frustrating, but that's because it's difficult. I just advised myself to git gud, and I did.
>>

>>45098136

Besides looking up and down (which is wonky as fuck), what's wrong with the graphics?

It's early 3D but it's largely pixel art and big textures that complement the pixel art. I think it's very pretty.

You can play Super Mario Bros. without having an aneurysm, you can play Ultima Underworld.
>>
>>45098223
fuck phantasms and ghost fuckers in general
>>
>>45098531
Well, I can't say what exactly is wrong with it, but it just doesn't work for me, strains my eyes too much or some such.
I can play Mario Bros, I can play Doom or Wolfenstein (well, could back in a day, haven't tried lately), but not UU or SS.

Just play the baulders gate remakes, there a classic for a reason and the art has aged very well.

I say remakes because it requires less modding.
>>
>>45099961
Don't spoiler links asshat.
>>
>>45095809

Pillars is good if you can get it on sale. Its introduction period is absolutely ass and the game takes a while to get anywhere, and even once it gets chugging, it's... a fairly standard, cut-and-dry mystery story. The sheer variety of ways you can play your character, though, are pretty good and Edér is a baller. Some of the companions are incredibly boring, though, and at times the pandering in the game gets overwhelming.

Age of Decadence.
>>
>>45099926
that's a grand strategy, its nowhere close to what i'm looking for
>>
>>45099976
seems like a good idea, at least the enhanced edition will hopefully solve any major issues and bring things up to date a bit.

presently downloading that, and also Lords of Xulima, which looked interesting
>>
>>45100134
now there's an interesting idea, i've heard good things about it, had forgotten it existed. thank you for reminder, i'll look into it
>>
>>45095136
If you haven't played The Elder Scrolls Morrowind, it's much more traditional RPG than Oblivion and Shitrim.
Although it might not be what you're looking for, it's sort of slow, combat is a bit clunky, and it's just you versus everything Read: Swarms of Cliffracers
That could just be my lorefag bias talking however.
>>
>>45100968
If you're looking for a traditional RPG experience you might as well just play Daggerfall. It makes Morrowind look downright casual.
>>
>>45101005
He asked for relatively modern, so I figured Morrowind was the better choice to recommend. Now I just realized that Morrowind is almost 14. Where does the time go?
>>
>>45095136
Planescape: Torment.

>>45097047
>Carmageddon, really?
Car Wars exists.

Tried SysShock 2? It's built on the Dark Engine, like Thief 1 & 2 (both also highly recommended).

Nigga do you think I made this? It says "TGs", not "some dong's".
I added five games to it, something like three years ago, I guess, at this point. You think you got some things that belong on it, go ahead and add them. If people agree, they'll save and repost the fork.

>disliking New Vegas
I don't know what planet you're from, man. Meh on Halo, but even meh, I guess it was landmark enough it might deserve some inclusion.
>>
>>45101005
Don't get me wrong, I love the lore, but fuck Daggerfall, and fuck Arena. Those tutorial read: drop you on your fucking face unless you're a barbarian or some shit dungeons were hell
>>
>>45102324
I don't dislike New Vegas, per say, but it was just a rehashed FO3. Both which also suffered from the Curse of the Action RPG.
>>
>>45098570
And this is why I love playing as a Mystic Knight.

Holy enchantment up in this bitch.

m8 did you even play it? Not only was the combat system retooled to keep things like, say, deathclaws, still scary at high levels, but it had much better writing, a sane plot, some pretty sweet endings, and some top tier DLC. And it was basically written by the same guys who made the first two. Dead Money >= Old World Blues > Lonesome Road >(>) Honest Hearts.But it's okay if people don't agree.

I've got ~80 hours in New Vegas, I just didn't see much difference in it besides scoping in, a disappointing lack of small caliber lever-action rifles and less town density (terrible fucking idea). Oh, and fuck Cazadores.

Dead Money >= Lonesome Road > OWB > Honest Hearts

Old world blues was pretty gcool, especially the interactions with the floating computers, and the freaky enemies.

The place it gave you to explore was a bit too big though, not enough to do in all that space, it felt a bit spread thin. i wish they'd kept it more focused
