    Yup first palace is mainly just cut scenes and having your hand held. The next 90 hours the game opens up and is a great experience.

    I tried fallout 4 for a bit, couldn't get hooked. Skyrim with guns but the atmosphere seemed way less engaging. A lot of cool stuff like settlements I couldn't make my way to apparently.

    I tried Fallout:New Vegas when it was first released, but I gave up on it because it was so buggy it was unplayable. It and all of the DLC was on sale on Steam a while ago, and I decided to give it another try.

    Definitely be best Fallout game out there, probably because it wasn't developed by Bethesda. There's a really robust modding community out there too, so you can install mods that make the game more stable, improve the graphics quality, and a bunch of other stuff. For a game that's over ten years old, it's definitely worth a try.

    For whatever reason I prefer RPGS in that classic top down, 2D sprite based style. I see a picture of those games and I automatically know what they are. I like shit like Final Fantasy 6(3), Chrono Trigger, Suikoden, etc.

    Figure I'd add Tale of Wuxia to the list.

    If you don't mind obvious errors like some text boxes not containing the text, laughably bad Google Translate dialogue, and an oriental sensibility that apologizes for emperors the interesting combination of visual novel, character development, isometric turn based combat and time-limited exploration is very well done.

    If anyone has played Scroll of Taiwu or Amazing Cultivation Simulator I'd like to know how they compare.

    Feel like "RPG" has a different meaning today than it did 25 years ago.


    Growing up games like ChronoTrig, Final Fantasy and those turn based jap games were the only titles defined as RPG's. EVen Mario had a turn based rpg for snes


    Somewhere along the way it evolved, nowadays ppl just recreate their own definition of what a role playing game is.


    Anyone ever play those 70's-80's tabletop RPG pen n paper games?

    That's why I say ....to me..... what I personally always think of when it comes to RPGs are those titles you listed. The more modern takes like Witcher may technically conform to whatever the definition of 'RPG' is but they're their own beasts in some ways.

    Anything that looks like this you know to be an RPG:


    This looks like a standard action game that you'd have to play to know it has your typical RPG levelling up/progression systems:

    Exactly

    Not that it matters either, but it's confusing when people say game is "a RPG" when most of the time it's a "_______ or _____ or ______ type game with RPG elements"

    That said, I love games with RPG elements but I rarely ever get into true JRPG games anymore
