Default Help me decide between these 3 RPG's

Dragon Age 2
Fable 3
Fallout New Vegas.

The tricky part is that Fallout 3, Dragon Age Origins and Fable 1-2 are pretty much my top 5 games list ever (after Mass Effect). So style of game doesn't sway me. I want the all around best experience. Glitches don't bug me really (New Vegas). What I care about is the game that sucks you in the most, has a lot of options and has great interactions.

Which game should I get first? If you've played or own all 3 please give me a couple pros and cons for each. Try to be unbiased for my benefit please.

I've only played Fallout NV. I can tell you it was worth paying for and it was pretty fun.

But like in most RPG's, once everything is sort of discovered, you sort of lose interest in it. DLC will keep it fun but I think it's a game best made for the PC.

You can always replay it too.

Fallout 3 was definitely more replayable than Mass Effect, Dragon Age and the Fable games. Mainly because SO damn much content that I knew I had missed a gazillion side quests (lol Gazillion didn't spellcheck me).

Btw I have an update. I may get Dragon Age 2 and Fable in a trade today. Trading a small package of games for Fable and a super nice pair of Raybans I never wear for Dragon Age. Cross my fingers. I'll try to come up with something to trade for Vegas too but nobody seems to want to let the game go. Lucky for me Fable and DA2 seems more hit and miss.

I liked New Vegas a lot and that would be my choice.

I haven't played Fable 3 though but don't plan to anyways. The reviews make it seem like a very dumbed-down RPG with a frustrating interface.

I'm a WRPG guy. Fable, Mass Effect, Fallout and Dragon age make up my favorite game series. Fable 3 and DA2 have been criticized a lot but IGN and all other major grading gaming sites have given both at LEAST a 7.5 and an 8+ most of the time. So it's worth a shot considering I'm not buying but rather trading games I never play anymore.

After the feedback I got from you I was gunning for New Vegas the most but it seems it's so popular nobody is trading it. On Craigslist.. only games people are trying to give me are Fable 3 and DA2. Haven't gotten a single person tell me they will trade me New Vegas.

Fuck all three of those. Blue Dragon reigns supreme; Tales of Vesperia a close second.

Mass Effect is not a real RPG.
Well. I am sorry, it is however, the most traditional RPG in here is of course Fallout New Vegas. Mass Effect is not the most traditional, and it is pretty linear. Fable 3 is also not the most traditional RPG, and also pretty linear. I only played FONV and Fable 3, however, I have tried Mass Effect 2 at a friends house. I like Fallout better

I'm a big JRPG fan too but Dragon Age Origins is one of the greatest RPG since like KOTOR. Bioware kills it always.

I say get Dragon Age 2 and Fallout NV. Both worse than their predecessors but still great

Dragon Age 2

You will never look back.

If you're going to play the PC version make sure to get the DLCs. And make sure to check the different modding sites, there's some mods that make the game much more interesting, like the one that removes limitations in the job system and in the weapons the different jobs can equip.

You apparently have never heard of Western RPG. You're actually wrong though. JRPG is FAR more linear and WRPG is more open. Fallout is a WRPG. WRPG's have far more control over a story and different outcomes traditionally. Compare any Bioware or Bethesda RPG in recent years to the recent Final Fantasy games if you want an example.

Thanks. Honestly I think WRPG's are clearly taking over, primarily Bioware and Bethesda studios. I think the new age of gaming does not favor the more beautiful presentation but linear, set story lines of JRPG. People want control.. they want interaction.. they want consequences. Mass Effect 3 is going to set an RPG bar just like the first did.

Yes, out of the 3 you said, the only really non-linear is FONV.
ME2 and Fable 3 are linear.

I guess you can say you keep looking at things like FF13 which was a disaster. Well not really, but you know what I mean.
But back in the day, JRPG were so much better.
