PC RPGs are also very good. Consoles aren't just the ones that hog all the glory of
RPGs. That's why I have a PC and a PSX, to play both sides of the RPG gaming
most PC RPGs require some sort of 3D Accelerator and it runs really slow on my old
300MHz (Not anymore now cause I have a 500Mhz PIII and a TNT2). That's why I got a
Playstation, to play good console RPGs without having to worry about slow game
play and ugly low-res graphics. Even so, there are some companies considerate enough to
give us an RPG not only worth playing, but it can run on some people's slow

Fallout is one of the most enjoyable PC RPGs I've ever played for the
PC. It takes place in a Nuclear devastated America. The people who were saved in deep
underground Vaults are now sending someone to take a look at the world that was once
theirs. The poor sap that had to re-discover the world happens to be you and you don't know
what's out there. You have to rely on your skills, wits, knowledge, and your 10mm
though the year is over 2000,the world seems more like the 50's so expect to see some old
stuff. This game is actually very violent, your enemies die in different nasty
combat system is turn-based, for example, if you see a guy that wants to kill
you, the game
stops and you take turns attacking each other. They have a good variety of weapons and
quests. You can still find this in some stores, but if you know me, you can borrow it.
|Baldur's Gate by Interplay, Bioware,
TSR , and Black Isle Studios
Baldur's Gate was made by Interplay, Bioware, Black Isle, and TSR, the makers of the
popular Dungeons and Dragons games. This game is based on the Forgotten Realms universe and
its very large. Spanning 5 whole CDs and a really large game world. The story begins as
young warrior is setting to save the Sword Coast from the corruption of all the metals in
the land. Some ugly demons are messing with the metal so the soldiers have no weapons to
defend their castles, so they can take over. Combat is real-time and its based on D&D
rules, which makes it harder just to slash and kill a small demon. This game is very
put a lot of time playing it and I enjoyed it. You should still be able to find it, it was the best selling RPG for the PC and it won a whole lot of
interface is really simple, just point and click. You can command up to 6 characters in your
party. This game has a large variety of cool spells and some cool weapons.
Since this one
was a success, they are making several new AD&D games for example,
Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale, Baldur's Gate 2, and Pool Of Radiance.
What's next, a new game based on the Savage Frontier? Or maybe Krynn...
Daggerfall is one of the best RPGs known to
man. I wouldn't know myself because I haven't been able to get a copy of
it (ugh), but thanks to Chris, my employer at Avault, I was able to get
it!!! I was also able to find the prequel to this one. Its prequel was
Elder Scrolls: Arena which was also a classic. Although the graphics
aren't as good as Daggerfall, it still provided the same things that made
Daggerfall the best. The story starts out with you sailing to the town of
Daggerfall to investigate the so called ghost of the departed king of
Daggerfall. Along the way you get caught in a storm, and are forced to
make landfall and you stay in a cave. The rain causes a mudslide which
seals you in, and you must find a way out. After that, the story just gets
bigger and you must investigate more than just that ghost. The game world is very
vast and it offers a whole lot of things to do than just run around
killing monsters. The game has a lot of freedom, you don't even have to
pursue the quest. Although if you do wish to follow the quest, you may
often get lost because of all the things happening at the same time. There are plenty of things to do while you're in
Daggerfall, join guilds, raid houses and stores, and become assassins. You
can even buy your own house and boat!
I don't really know much about Silver, all I know is that people call it
the " A PC Gamer's Final Fantasy". I've seen some screenshots of it and it does seem
similar to FF. The characters are rendered in 3D and the backgrounds are
battle system is also similar. You should buy the game and see.
|System Shock 2 by Looking
Glass Productions (formerly Blue Sky Software)
Here's some screens.
System Shock 2 is an incredible 3D action/RPG for the
PC that uses the Thief 3D engine. I haven't been
able to fully enjoy this game because it requires hardware acceleration. (Now I
can run it flawlessly!) It runs really
slow on my old PC, but I've been able to play around with it. The game is about a soldier who
finds himself stuck onboard a ship that was supposed to take him back home, but was overrun
by machines and hybrids they call "annelids" that think for themselves. Fortunately, you have been cybernetically
enhanced. You can use Psionic powers and have superhuman strength. Its up to you to regain
the ship and get rid of the evil entity or entities. Or die onboard the Von
Braun .This game features awesome
3D graphics and a very easy interface. It offers several weapons and items. The inventory system makes it easy to make yourself the ideal fighter.
Unfortunately, Looking Glass Studios has been shut down and out of
business because of money problems. Goodbye Looking Glass Studios, we'll
miss you and the world of Thief. Luckily Irrational Games has the license
to System Shock, so maybe they'll be more System Shock games.
This page isn't exactly done yet, I still have to get screens of the games
here and find out more about them so watch for those updates.
