>>
>>284702836
The funny thing is that there were guys like you back then.
RPG's were disliked by some because even if the game didn't had a lot of text, you've had to read the manual before playing unless you wanted to fail hard. That's one of the reasons why has Doom nearly killed the genre - why would anybody develop RPG on PC/other computers if there is a genre that sells 10 times as much?
>>
>>284703193
Name four games from this generation that are better.
>>
>>284703047
I'm aware, hence why I said said it was a meaningless genre descriptor, but that's the name they have. Videogames really need some genre renaming. Rougelike, j/w/cRGP and adventure games just aren't as defining as FPS or Racing are.

>>284703661
I have no solution to put forth. There's unfortunately no genre naming committee that stays up countless sleepless hours thinking of fitting descriptors for genres. That would be pretty cool though. I just deal with it and go for more lengthy descriptors. "Isometric RPGs with an emphasis on narrative." I think we'll have better genre names in a couple more decades though if videogames grow in the same way that movies did. Could you imagine if they grew like music though? Dozens and dozens of subgenres that are impenetrable to anyone who hasn't been gaming for more than a few years. I actually sort of like that notion.

What's wrong with "story focused isometric RPG with click-centric-gameplay"?

We need less labels, not more of them. It's better to describe something than to give it a vague label that can mean almost anything.

I want to play it buy autism forces me to play the first one. And I've been told it's awful.

Is it really that awful or is it more of a "It wasn't what I wanted it to be so it's unplayable"?

when i left /b/ last summer half of the threads was about traps. Well, at least it started with trap threads, later evolved into literally naked mens and their sharpies. How is it now?
>>
>>284704729
Fucking great game. If you haven't played LISA I SUPER recommend playing it. But for another build, a decker/shaman worked surprisingly well for me. Early game was god awful, but by mid I was alright. If you want a real fun time though play a mage technophobe. Any choices involving technology just go nuts on it.

>>284704930
The first one is slightly boring and the characters are forgettable. As a game it's alright. It's not that the first one is bad, it's that the second one is a more polished experience. The third one is going to be even MORE polished too. So if you're determined to play all of them, play them in order, because going backwards would be painful.
>>
>>284704930
Dragonfall is pretty much better in every way
I played Returns and stopped after an hour
the story is completely unrelated anyway
>>
>>284704627
Nothing's wrong with it, I was just wondering if there was a term for it.

And having labels can be useful. It can describe several factors regarding the experience of playing the game. Shorthand isn't always bad.
>>
>>284701920
I usually call those sorts of games cRPGs.
>>
>>284705132
What I generally want is a build that covers as many dialogue choices as possible(excluding the decker/INT/quickness ones the first run covered), while not being terrible in combat.

>>284704729
My first run was an Elf gunslinger.

Not sure about replaying it because it is so dialog heavy, but if I do, maybe I'll try an unarmed troll Adept or a human Rigger.
>>
>>284705569
Charisma 6 then is what you want no matter what. Just go for a suave Shaman build. Etiquette to prioritize would be Gang and Security. If I recall those ones pop up the most with Academic popping up only like three times. I only recall Shadowrunner popping up once the whole game which was a crock of shit though. It's fucking called Shadowrun why is it such a rare dialogue choice.

>>284705756
18+ earthbound. Darkly humorous game about being a washed up druggie fat middle aged man who embarks on a quest to save his adopted daughter in an apocalyptic wasteland devoid of women. Has a shit ton of party members and has the most impacting choices I've actually seen in a game before. It's a cheap game, but pirate before you buy to see if you'd dig it. I bought it after playing it for only an hour or so. Really really fantastic game.
>>
>>284705723

Academic gives you a neat money bonus on Samuel's run against Humanis.

I'd say go for Academic, Security and Shadowrunner.

F3 and NWN are shitty games and hack & slash is also an RPG wheter you like it or not
not that those 3 you mentioned had any substantial RPG elements
>>
>>284706471
I assume whoever made it put diablo,torchlight and van helsing in there so he could add Diablo 3 to shit tier. The hate that got at release was insane
>>
>>284706427
Then if I'm wrong Socialite ain't bad, since you can probably grab an expensive wine bottle on one of the late runs and sell it to Alturg, I didn't have it and I got cheap booze instead.

>>284706554
No idea, I go blind on my first playthrough and went with only Street and Shadowrunner etiquettes.
>>
>>284706554
You can do that without academics.

However, academic can help out a lot in Glory's quest, but still isn't really that useful. Logic stronk
>>
>>284706812
I think it's socialite that gives you access to the bottle yeah. It MIGHT be corporate, but I doubt it. I don't remember how much I used corporate but I do think it saved my bacon a few times.

>>284705470
this, though that used to apply to the first person dungeon crawlers. All it really means is computer RPG, and its most consistent attribute was a customizeable main character/set of main characters

these are called action rpgs.

>>
>>284710254
most roguelikes are pretty shit as RPG's if you're looking for writing, since most of them have essentially no plot other than "get to the bottom of the dungeon without dying because reasons"
>>
>>284710475
Septerra Core is decidedly an RPG
It's pretty good actually. The world is arranged into 7 gigantic shells that, once every hundred years, align to let a bit of sunlight hit the core of the world. When that happens, shit goes down.
combat's a bit wonky but it's definitely worth a playthrough

It was an extremely bad game that people were genuinely excited for. I can't imagine how many millions of hurt asses there were over that. My own included. It didn't help I had a blizzard tester assuring me it was amazing. Though I played d2 with that tester and he died to corpsefire on normal.

Actually pretending to hate them is the hipster thing to do.

When Fallout 3 and NV got popular everyone pretended to hate them or just sorta like them but to prefer the old Fallouts that most modern gamers hadn't played.
But when the F3 NV audience discovered that they're actually pretty great games everyone heel-turned and pretended to hate them since they became popular again.

That being said

Fallout 1 > Fallout New Vegas > Fallout 2 > Fallout 3

Everything else is objectively wrong.
>>
>>284705723
Fallout 1 better than NV, Diablo on the list, KOTOR1 not shit tier, Two Worlds 2 not High Tier.
>>
>>284704334
You were too young.

Or too dumb...
>>
>>284712438
I never really got why people like fallout 1 more than 2, I mean, what does fallout 1 does better than 2?

Fallout 2 > Fallout New Vegas > Fallout 1 > Fallout 3.

I think you could permute NV and FO1 if your nostalgia monocle bias you.

>>284713060

I bet these nerds don't even lift!

>>
>>284713060
Fallout 1 does everything better than 2 except for quantity.

Fallout 2 is a great game but it's still a painfully obvious cash-in sequel.
It brings nothing new to the table except a few minor tweaks that are mandatory for a sequel.
It's just more of the same but with quantity over quality.
