favorite RPG? western or otherwise , ..mine is the elderscrolls series, ..morrowind to be specific


From Western RPGs, it's honestly so hard to choose; for me, so much of it is in my head, the kinds of characters and stories they let me make up. For that reason, Skyrim + Mods might be my overall favorite, though that's obviously cheating a little bit … Wasteland 2 is my favorite in recent years, but I've never actually finished, there's just so much stuff hidden away, I can't stop restarting and making new characters and choices, like how I didn't actually do the main quest of Skyrim until less than a year, despite playing it since launch. o///o


call me a pleb, but persona 3

the music and the characters made me feel like I was in another place


I am also a big fan of TES, particularly cause I'm a lorewhore

>collected books for my in-game house

>stocked my bedroom shelves with the rarest books
>used online resources to learn about the history of Tamriel
>staunch Imperialist - switched allegiances after naively "choosing" Stormcloak at the start of Skyrim

Oblivion is my favourite. I have all the non-battle/dungeon music in my collection, it's just so comfy.


Morrowind is the best TES game, I say even having played it after oblivion, but my favorite RPG in general is probably fallout 2.

Radiata Stories, hands down. It's a great game with a lot of heart and feels like something the devs really enjoyed making. I had a discussion about it recently with a friend and he mentioned that he had even started playing through it again with some friends and it was still just as good as he remembered it. Just thinking about the endings gets me feeling some sort of way every time.

Its impossible to rank them but I believe Legend of Mana shaped my interests to this day. Another title that comes to mind is Etrian Odyssey because of da party buildan.

My favourites RPGs are BG & BG2. Cool story, nice graphics and fun to play.


P3P and Persona 4 are awesome. I am currently about 18 hours into Persona 4 Golden for the Vita, and I am loving it. The soundtrack is good, and I am literally falling in love with the characters. Would reccomend it to jRPG and non/jRPG fans of most types, besides people who are not willing to commit a lot of time.



I'm a colossal weeaboo. By all accounts I SHOULD like JRPGs, but as it turns out I really can't fucking stand the grinding.

Morrowind remains my favorite RPG, a flawed masterpiece. Oblivion was an abomination against all that is good and right in the world, a foul abortion. Skyrim was kind of mediocre, like breadsticks at a restaurant that are pretty good when they're hot but just disappointing once they're not.

My problem with Skyrim was that, while the scenery was nice and the dungeons all had a very grand scale to them, the writing and character building elements didn't have a lot of depth to them and it wound up making the game feel kind of shallow over all. It's one of those games that at times feels kind of frustrating because you can see things that you feel ''should'' be there but they just aren't. It all adds up towards making the game feel unfinished.

I still love Skyrim though, I mean I sunk like 1300 hours into it and all.



Mechanically it's also very poor. There's no depth to combat, it's just hit thing with weapon till it dies, or shoot it, or use generic spell, and maybe shout at it some times. I had the most fun with combat in skyrim when I levelled up conjuration and just summoned stuff, but most of the other spells were just garbage.

The best thing skyrim did was being a good base for mods, because at least they fix half the stuff wrong with it.


See, I think that's more of a balancing issue than a mechanical one. There's ways to improve combat by just tweaking some settings, like making enemies more likely to doge, block, or use items, more likely to seek cover, less likely to give up searches for hidden assassins, etc. I in some ways I actually prefer the combat of Skyrim to like Oblivion or Morrowind because of how "floaty" everything feels in those, attacking in Skyrim feels like it has weight to it, but yeah the NPCs are completely stupid with the default settings and nothing does nearly enough damage as it should.


Skyrim is only good for the sex mods and the important npc killing mod. It falls flat everywhere else.

I hate Skyrim too, and I bought it 3 times on different systems :/

I went back and played Oblivion last year and it doesn't hold up great.

But at the time, in 2005, Oblivion looked like some next level shit. I remember getting Game Informer that year and mentally masturbating to the screenshots.

Yes, I was really impressed by this minotaur lmfao.

Morrowind would be amazing with another combat system. Not an action based system like Skyrim, but something less clunky than what it uses. I'm sure there's a mod for this somewhere.

The music, dialog, and overall atmosphere is on point however.


Yeah, I loved oblivion when it came out too, when I was younger and it was newer.
I think I know when I started really liking morrowind more than it-
One time, I had no internet for a while, so I played morrowind on my xbox, and REALLY got into roleplaying it, putting myself in the world.
I actually decided one particular, totally unimportant NPC was mai waifu and visited her every day, and built a little shrine of flowers and nice potions behind the counter with her.
Ive never even beaten the game, but I could get into its world much better, and it was much more interesting to do so.


Oh wow, are you me? I just started a new Skyrim character earlier today and I'm on another book hunt. Past characters have been more about military, political, or historical texts, but I'm playing a sort of priest, so finally I have a reason to present The Dreamstride.



I couldn't do it in Oblivion or Skyrim because


But in Morrowind I would always carry around the following items when I traveled:

>book I was "currently reading"

>jug of Sujamma
>travel lantern
>piece of paper
>loaf of bread

When I finished playing for the day I would find a suitable place, set down the paper and put the bread on top, and arrange the rest of my items around to make a "camp". Then I would save the game and turn it off.
