How am I supposed to take this list seriously, when they have Skyrim all the way down at 12? There's not a single game better, nevermind 11.

Neckbear1739d ago

Skyrim doesn't even DESERVE to be on the list.

mattdillahunty1739d ago

Dark Souls? seriously? the game was a frickin tragedy on PC at release, and even now it's only halfway decent because of mods.

the game itself is amazing, but that was a horrible port.

1 - play morrowind
2 - I was more worried that I didn't see any Ultima :(

SlapHappyJesus1739d ago

Neckbear said it perfectly.
That series has quickly turned into a casual joke of an "rpg".

ATi_Elite1739d ago

Elder scroll Morrowind is not on the list therefore this list is totally BOGUS.

No Baldurs gate 2 No System Shock 2

wow just BOGUS

Tsuru1739d ago

Except Baldurs gate 2 is #1.

list is pretty damn good

Baldur's Gate II literally CRAPS on every other major rpg ever made

Way better than any mass effect, elder scrolls, dragon age, better than any final fantasy, any fallout, any other rpg ever made

next would be icewind dale series, then neverwinter nights, then the witcher 1

every one of those games as well destroys any mass effect/skyrim/whatever cookie cutter rpg!

not that those games are bad, the are just paint by numbers, lead you by the nose

the best elder scrolls game by far is morrowind, you can mod it and it looks way better than skyrim on xbox or ps3!

Pintheshadows1739d ago

You forgot Planescape Torment.

cunnilumpkin1739d ago

agreed, I do love that game as well, but the humor and heavy dialog make it almost a category of its own, I almost don't consider planescape an rpg in a way, it is its own genre in a way

but yes, planescape, imo, is better than neverwinter, though not quite bg2 level

Pintheshadows1739d ago

I agree, it is a very very unique game and a stone cold classic. To me BG2 and Planescape are the pinnacle of Infinity Engine games.

WarThunder1739d ago (Edited 1739d ago )

1- Darksouls
2- The Witcher 2
3- Divinity II
4- Neverwinter Nights
5- Final Fantasy VIII
6- Baldur's Gate II
7- Diablo 2
8- Knights Of The Old Republic
9- Deus Ex
10- Mount & Blade: Warband
11- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
12- Skyrim
13-MassEffect (the Original) ME2/3 are not RPG games

Pintheshadows1739d ago

I like that you included Divinity 2. A lot of people really dislike that game but I really enjoyed it. Had a great sense of humour much like its predecessors.

SlapHappyJesus1739d ago (Edited 1739d ago )

Same here.
Divinity 2 was fantastic.
Truly a great sense of humor, good character progression and just an overall well told story.
Truly a great roleplaying game.

Here we go... a top (insert number) list. One person's opinion becomes a heresy to the gospel of gaming, and everyone must pick up their pitchforks and burn the witch. Dramatic... I know... but some of you need to calm the ____ down. It's okay... you don't have to agree with the author's list. I don't. Hell, I don't even respect his opinion... but his list is his list.

CanadianTurtle1739d ago

How did you get Fallout New vegas higher on the list than Fallout3?

Neckbear1739d ago

Because it's a game that actually knows what Fallout is about and realizes its potential fully, unlike 3?

Moncole1739d ago

Because its a better game and got way better RPG mechanics.
