Does anyone here read game informer? This months cover is on the X-box game Fable, which is an RPG that is similar to Elder Scrolls in the freedom of movement and the fact that you can chose whether you are good or not...All the characters have their own intelligence...so they will react to the moral decisions you make. Also it involves some strategy where you can't wear big clunky armor if you want to be a thief or you find the best combination of classes...the release date is in november, but I was just curious if anyone else had heard about it.

What do I want in a roleplay? A game were the main chick is NOT the key to the destruction of the world.

A game where you can play as the hero and save the world, or play the entire game as the villain trying to destroy the world.

And the game should have about 300 playable characters (all with developing storylines) and it should take about 1000 hours to beat it.

I originally posted some stuff on only Rogue but
now I shall expound upon my my favorite pooter RPG's.

These I rank by time invested/wasted:

5. Square games (FFX, FF7, and Kingdom Hearts)

already mentioned in a lot of the posts. awesome
graphics and music and cute characters with japanese
mannerisms.
difficulty: moderate, mostly strategy
storyline: wild twists got me all confused
attachment: you can like some of the characters even
though most of them are scooby doo age kids.

4. Wizardry & The Bard's Tale

These will always have a home in my RPG'ing heart as
they are the first D&D like RPG's I played. Fight,
fight, cast spell, parry, parry, execute. I remember
making lots of 3-d dungeon maps on graph paper.

difficulty: moderate, depends on your mapping skills
storyline: not much, just plow through the dungeon
and get the key items to open up the next dungeon
attachment: hmm, not to any specific character

3. Diablo series

Loved the real-time fighting, the item creation possibilities, and the complementary skills of the characters.
difficulty: good range of difficulty and very replayable.
storyline: the brief movies are OK but nowhere as complex
as final fantasy.
attachment: customizing your character is fun and even better with multiple players.

2. Rogue/Hack/NetHack/Moria/Angband series

I remember spending many hundreds of hours playing those rogue-style games, learning those silly vi cursor commands
and paging through --More--. Moria and Angband were fun for the Tolkien refs, the boss monsters with escorts, and the piles of spells. Nethack was silly but fun because you could name all sorts of things, eat monster corpses, and
fight your own ghosts.
difficulty: insanely difficult to complete. once you die you have to start all over, that is unless you use save files or cheat with wizard mode.
storyline: it's solo hack-n-slash
attachment: based mainly on what goodies you have. one
game you might have a really cool item, another you might
have a pet dragon

1. Muds

Now, these are much simpler than the other RPG's yet because of the multiplayer chatting aspect, they consume hundreds of hours, even hundreds of days. Things get even more time consuming when you participate in building the game too.

difficulty: depends on the puzzle abilities of the coders.
storyline: most are puzzle solving text adventures and some hack-n-slash
attachment: very strong, you ARE that character for the
duration.

hmmm...as you'll see by the list, I'm a wee bit biased in favor of PC RPGs.

3.) Chrono Trigger (See all reasosn stated previously)

2.) Planescape Torment (Probably the most original RPG I've ever played, with music that actually fits the overall mood of the game, particular the themes for the main character & Deionarra. And for those who abhor the typical sappy happy ending, the fate of The Nameless One at the end of the game should satisfy you).

1.) The Baldur's Gate series (Best D&D gaming translation, period)
