Its a very good rpg with a very good story and Baldurs Gate style gameplay crossed with Arcanum.
It's a great game on the gamecube it should keep you busy for quite a while as it took me 3 months to 4 months to finish the game it's great and awsome a must play on the gamecube
Ive been plying this game for 7 years and i still love it. I still love it because of all the different things you can gain and collect and all the quests.
PSX, I loved this game, the story was epic, the characters were great.. great turn based game with nice classes etc.
I spent my late childhood on this game. I can't belive that nobody mentioned it! Great gaming experience. Good graphics, large character customizatiom, wonderful world!
Although I cannot say this is the best RPG game, since it's a tremendously old game of PS1, and my favorites being KOTOR and Legend of Dragoon, it still has a great story and unique battle sequences.
One of the last of classic dungeon crawler released [In english talking world]. Now I am at my 9th playtrough :) [Graphics is still good when you play it in windowed dosbox ]
The whole series was fun and had great graphics for the day. Plus it's the only game I know that musicians were kick ass.
well.... Eye of the beholder series is up there on the list , but Black Crypt was a better game ( better graphics, scarier atmosphere, great interface - and it was made by 3 guys only )
The very first, open world rpg I remember. After the short "tutorial" in Twinlake the starting city, you are on your own. Character statistics and leveling is unique. Great atmosphere and many hours of addictive gameplay. I still have the map under my desks glass.
This game is amazing with a huge story line and it keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole way. Customization is amazing
Making your own superhero or villain who trains under one of three iconic figures in the DC Universe. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman lead a new age of heroes against a force of new villains led by Lex Luthor, The Joker, and Circe, all while keeping the Earth safe from a new common enemy: Brainiac. PvP is available, but you may also choose PvE (enemy players are purple and untargetable) with an option to switch between the two in real time. A cross-platform MMORPG for PC and PS3 by Sony Online Entertainment.
You shoot everything, gain weapons, level up and awesome plot line. AND to top it off (SPOILER) your a robot. What's better? It's free to download and if you don't like the graphics you can by it on the mac store for 10 dollars with better graphics.
It was such a great game for its day! I played this non-stop while I was in Junior High on an C-64.
HIDDEN TREASURE from Russia !!! Well at least for me until now. When I found out that a PC game made after Strugatsky brothers novel (Which is very popular in my country, and one of rare russian SF novels acclaimed in the west!) actualy exists, I had to get my hands on it!!. And boyoboyo,ruskies did a good job!!! Gameplay is similar to gothic series, graphics and music really nice, there are some problems with camera and unwieldy combat system but nothing really significant. What is really great about this game is unique world, atmosphere, attention to details and story. ( Really good story and dialogs capturing the spirit of the novel) It will be a great pleasure (as it was for me) for someone who knows the book by heart to immerse one self in the happenings of the aftermath of Rumata*s massacre. (Those who didnt read the book might feel little lost at the beggining.) This game is really something else and creators did justice to Strugatsky novel and RPG genre.
although the appearance of this game was not noticed by the majority of gamers back in 1998, the game in itself is a legend. Innovative fighting system, beautiful graphics, music, all in all, it rightly deserves to be in top 100 RPG's of all times
This is not a rpg but magic wizard sword bow etc if you know what i mean.. great graphics and very funny story.
This game was published at 1994 (I was fourteen). With its play style, its story telling combined with its musics and its animations (cut scenes) it was a very good FRP of its time. The game's story was essentially strong because the story was originated about Drows and Drizzt and Drizzt's exile and so on. It was possible to play Drizzt and it was also possible to summon Drizzt's magical panther Guenhwyvar. Some of the strongest creatures like Eye of the beholder in the end of the game and also some of the most powerful spells one can use in AD&D 2: like blade barrier and so... This game was fantastic. In my opinion even most of the latest FRP/RPGs cannot compete with this game in terms of playability and its story telling. It made me so happy to cast a blade barrier on Eye of Beholder and you had to see that magical sphere turning around and also you had to see all the blades around the sphere are turning around their own axis as well. Ahhh "And the screams of a dying eye of the beholder inside the blade barrier spell...How satisfying feeling it was". Nowadays games have nicer graphics but I believe they lack the spirit of a novel story like Dark Elf Triology.
I dont quite know if i can call it an RPG, but it has some element of the Genre. It is a legendery game should be in the top 100! It was and still is widely overlooked, dont know why. Teamwork was key in this game, which was hard, but rewarding. Its a shame there was no sequel done or something in this direction. The characters were awesome, Captain, Engineer, Computer Technician and Cyborg. And the puzzles & enemies were great, mind boggling and did i say hard. I thik it deserves credit! BRGDS Mark
This games is one of only a couple that explores being a pirate. The ship to ship fighting was unseen before this game.
I believe this was the first RPG to use a massive world to explore. The game play was unbelievable for the time. I consumed more hours than I can count playing this and still replay it today.
Best game for PvP, Good Skill System, Good Flexibility although some classes are almost bound to a certain weapon type. Pay for the expansions and you have a life time of gear to farm =] Good long term game play. Played this game for 5 years. =] Awesome twinking system.
because at the time 'link to the past' was fun but this was way more FUN + you get your own dog to fight with Ya :D
Old skool C-64 early 80's. Nice rpg two floppys back then. You could build cars, find parts in the waste land, buy parts, do work for other people to fund your building of a bad@ss machine ,equip it with weapons. Also you could take your ride to the arena and take on a bunch of other cars win money and get parts off of cars you destroyed. Graphics are prehistoric, but this rpg was one of the very first. If you remade it today I think it could be awesome.
Classic hero MMORPG, lore runs deep and avoids being silly. The graphics are poor for present day but it's a blast all the same. Best thing about the game is also it's worst component, Leveling. If you want to level it takes forever and is the same content over and over... most experience comes from simply killing enemies over and over. Though, in the same light it forces teaming to occur, with a strong community of players it has it's not hard to form teams.
Classic game where you take the role of Aquaman, esteemed hero of the deep.
Best mmorpg in area of PvP gaming. One of the very few games where is almost everything about skill and It quite doesn't about how many hours you can spend online.
Another not so well known series that definitely deserves to be not only on this list, but probably right near the top (at least for games of it's day).
This should give your age away if you remember it! A great game but was spoiled near the end by extremely powerful monsters appearing too often. I guess the encounters were linked to your level/prowess.
Amazing RPG, can be played again and again. Oblivion. Just the name sounds exciting. Graphics are alright, however, game play is phenomenal. Huge RPG. When main quest is done, there are still many more. Way better then animated games like Fable 2. It is quite frankly, "The best."
One of the least known online RPG's. Uniques turn based combat, tactical combat also. Large variety of mercs to recruit in your team of 9 (main+8 mercs). Easy to understand and very addictive. just try it, it's free
it was a great RPG roaming game, not much story but amazing for an oline free game
I do not think you should play free realms unless your looking for a daily game like my sims.It takes a while to download and is pretty childish.
This has one of the best pvp systems i've ever seen and can handle 1000v1000 pvp realm vs realm
Well it is a MMORPG and the graphics aren't all that, but it is a generally fun game to play as you do numerous quests and also do turn based card battles with unusual enemies, which adds to the fun also!
The game isn't finnest yet but the preview is out! it is a large rpg with lots of quests
