From Console to Tabletop: Video Games and Their Pen & Paper Equivalent

Gaming Steve writes, "So you've decided to jump into the world of tabletop RPGs, what game should you pick? Below we'll look at some of the most popular RPG franchises and which game you will most likely be attracted to. Basically, if you liked the console game, then the RPGs I recommend will likely be your cup of tea.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: For me, this is a simple choice. If you like KOTOR, you should check out the new Star Wars Saga Edition from Wizards of the Coast. It's a great game system and one book gives you everything you need for countless adventures in the Star Wars universe.

Baldur's Gate: Another easy one, mostly because Baldur's Gate is actually based on the Dungeons and Dragons tabletop game, though a slightly older edition. So here's the sitch, the latest version of D&D is a great game and provides a tremendous play experience, so you can't go wrong there." (Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, City of Heroes, Culture, Diablo, Diablo 2, Diablo III, Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Final Fantasy, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, PC, PS2, PS3, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles, The Elder Scrolls Online, World of Warcraft, Xbox, Xbox 360)
