KotOR_Cover.png
662 KB, 768x960
I finished my first playthrough of KOTOR 1 and 2 (I hated 2) and now I'm in an all consuming void where no game I play is as enjoyable as KOTOR.

I need something to play. Something good. Something great. Please /v/, help me.
>>
What about Kotor 1 did you like? What about Kotor 2 did you not like? Have you played any other Bioware games?
>>
>>323266406
>(I hated 2)

You should try reddit.
>>
Yeah what did you like about 1?

Dragon age origin is very similar in a lot of core ways to kotor 1. I'd recommend that.
>>
>>323266521
Maybe it was just the novelty? But I guess in 2 I found that all the jedi characters were Lawful Stupid whiny bitches and felt like I went Dark Side not because I wanted to, but just to spite all the NPCs I hated.

>>323266616
Memes are fun.

>>323266758
Yeah I've played DA:I and found it to be a little too camp. Gameplay was nice enough but I found it a little too grindy.

Favourite RPG other than KOTOR is probably Mass Effect games and I like all the Souls games too.

Play Deus Ex. DO THE FUCKING TUTORIAL FIRST. Its there for a reason.

At first it will seem like a weird janky FPS/RPG hybrid then as soon as you hit Hong Kong it'll suck you in for an entire week as you uncover conspiracies and eventually make your JC into a superhuman tank.

10/10 experience, the kind of shit I wish I got to play on my Xbox 360.

Hijacking the thread.

Is SWTOR actually worth it for the stories? It's free and I have time, and I'm all out of lightsaber-swinging games. Should I bother with it?
>>
>>323267123
Still recommend even if I hated Human Revolution? Reckon that's worth going back and slugging through? I found the stealth to be not precise enough for me but I'll admit I didn't give it much of a chance.

Thanks for the recommendation anon! It's in the cart.
>>
>>323266961

Since we have similar tastes maybe you should try Red Dead Redemption if you haven't already.

Since I have no idea what you have or have not played, I will also throw in the recommendation that you go and play Soul Blazer for the SNES. That is my random suggestion. The game gave me fuzzy feelings when I played it in 2009.
>>
>>323267229
It's not really combat it's a weird kind of fluid turnbased combat which is actually a screened DND combat system (attack rolls and saving throws) still fun tho.

>>323267242
Abso-fucking-lutely. If you remotely like Star Wars and remotely like RPGs this game is worth playing if for nothing else just for the twist which absolutely made me shit myself.

I love Red Dead, riding into Mexico is still one of my all time favourite gaming memories. Will investigate Soul Blazer.

Well I wouldn't be playing it for the MMO features, only the story.

Play Jade Empire you fucking mong

All I share is I've read a lot of people say that it kind of bastardizes the plot of KOTOR and isn't the best addition.
>>
>>323267763
Looks decent, thanks.

>>323266406
glad im not the only one who enjoyed 1 over 2, I'd suggest S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl that'll take some time and it pretty fun

OP, what was your alignment in KOTOR 1? What did you think about the twist?

Always wondered if I would enjoy Stalker, will investigate.

I was relatively neutral most of the game, then when the twist hit me I really had a dilemma because I almost went dark side, but I ended the game light side and felt good about the choice.

Twist blew my socks off I absolutely loved it and did not call it at all like some of my friends say they did.
>>
>>323267417
>>323267242
It's alright. The story is indeed okay (not amazing but a lot better than most MMOs), and some of the specific class story lines are better than others. However, the side quests are shit and still grindy (kill 12 enemies, collect 8 loot). The worst part though, is that yo Have to grind to get enough levels before the next story quest as you level. The gameplay is literally WoW, I mean that completely. So give it a shot if you don't mind grindy MMO type gameplay, but it's still no where near worth it for a single player experience.
>>
>>323268219
I wasn't kidding when I said dragon age origin is basically kotor except not in a Star Wars universe though. Same quest structures, story direction, similar game play/companions. If you liked kotor, you are literally missing out if you don't play dragon age origin. It's by the same creative team before EA took over. As I said, it is nothing like DA:I but suit yourself.
>>
>>323268373
>The worst part though, is that yo Have to grind to get enough levels before the next story quest as you level.

I heard they changed it so that you could level up by doing just the main quest, which is why I'm even considering it (coupled with the fact that it's apparently free)

>It's alright. The story is indeed okay (not amazing but a lot better than most MMOs), and some of the specific class story lines are better than others.
Aight, cheers. I'm okay with mediocre stories as long as they have some redeeming features. I'll just need to know which ones to absolutely stay away from.
>>
>>323268307
how did you feel about Obsidian completely ignoring every single thing you did in KotOR 1 to streamline the narrative of 2?
>>
>>323268529
Oh well if it's nothing like DA:I it's on my list.
>>
>>323268681
Its buy a different dev, an actual sequel based on 1's endings would be very difficult and probably anti climatic.
>>
>>323268681
Absolutely broke my heart. I was hopeful at the start when you can correct Atton on some of the story elements about KOTOR, but then by the end I was just like, wtf did I even achieve in KOTOR 1 if all this shit just fucking 'happened' five years later?

If I hadn't loved playing KOTOR 1 so much it damn well might have ruined both games for me.
>>
assuming you haven't played it; Bloodlines: Masquerade is an exceedingly good WRPG with an immense amount of replay value, just make sure you get fan patches.

You could also try Witcher, or Stalker as the other anon said.

Or if you want another star wars game, play Battlefront 1 and 2. Very fun games. Too bad online is dead, but the single player is still enjoyable.
>>
you're lucky you didn't get the twist spoiled, glad to hear you could experience it firsthand just like I did way back when
>>
>>323268681
>Obsidian completely ignoring every single thing you did in KotOR 1 to streamline the narrative of 2

But they didn't. When you meet Atom in Paragus you can decide if Raven was a man or a woman or he/she saved the Republic or not.
>>
can the obsididrones just leave?
>>
>>323269109
They have to wait another six months for Obsidian to shit out a 'sequel' to Fallout 4. Then we'll get a reprieve.
>>
>>323268590
I didn't k is about the exp thing if that's true. It could be worth it then, because the biggest complaint against playing it as a single player game was that.
The worst storyline that people usually point to is the Jedi counselor one. It's super generic and not very exciting. The jedi knight one is equally generic but a bit more exciting, some liked it though.

My personal favorite was smith warrior but played with light side choices. So you are sort of this Grey sith who is almost redeeming yourself from the inside. It's very refreshing to play a good force user who is not just "stupid good" if you know what I mean. The bounty hunter and imperial agent also have good feedbacks. I haven't heard much about other ones, the reactions seem mixed, so you might have to try yourself.
>>
>>323268883
Will investigate Bloodlines, have played the rest.

>>323268889
Yeah I'm actually really appreciative that I didn't have that spoiled for me even though I played the game 12 years late.

>>323269005
Aaaaaand that's it. They paid more respect to T3-M4 and he went fucking chaotic evil anyway. It didn't do the first game justice and anyone who tries to defend it is either blinded by nostalgia or needs to replay.
>>
>>323269109
Can't you just like both, since both are great games?
>>
>>323269005

Too little is different between the two choices that it feels like Revan did not matter. The light side ending of KOTOR 1 was super optimistic to the point of cheese and the dark side ending implied the galaxy was going to be conquered within the month. Both endings are undone by Revan flying off to unknown space to confront an unknown threat.

I love KOTOR 2 but it is disappointing if you come into with the hopes of it continuing the story you experienced KOTOR 1. Obviously they had to somewhat unify the two endings of KOTOR 1 so they wouldn't have to make two different versions of KOTOR 2, but it really did feel like the original story was been undermined.

lol obsidrone pls. The writers completely destroyed any semblance of consistency in the story and totally misunderstood the world of Star Wars by adding 2deep4u philosophy 101 bullshit.

If you like Bioware's style, try Jade Empire. I consider it their magnum opus.

KotOR combat is D20 turn-based put into real-time (basically every few seconds is another turn, and you queue up what actions you'll take). While I generally think KotOR is overrated, I thought that aspect of turning a D20 DnD based system into an "action RPG" was really well done.

>>323269786
It is great. It's one of the best star wars games that celebrates the star wars universe. It pays respect to most of the universe and vaguely fun to play once or twice.

2 is also great but for different reasons. It's largely a deconstruction of the same universe and other things like making gameplay improvements. I have no idea why these this retarded back and forth between 1 and 2's fans.

I at least quit LoL for DotA a few years back. MMOs are generally pretty easy to get into. I think it's because there's a lot to do and that sense of investment is there. A lot of single player games are hard for me to get into now because I know it will end and I probably won't play it again.

I'll play a bit with you and show you the ropes if you like, but I know how having a lot of friends playing one game means you're probably going to stick with it.
No worries, late night comfy threads are the best.
