    I like the older stuff. It seems to me that there is not much originality in most games that come out these days - EA makes another Madden or other sports game with minimal changes from the previous years, another FPS comes out with flashier graphics, or the latest MMORPGs still have you killing wave after wave of orcs or skeletons to achieve the next level.


    My favorites PC games would be:

    Ultima Underworld - released about the time of Doom, the first true 3D game in my opinion. You had the ability to look up and down which wasn't available until Quake with iD's games. Also the first game I remember to have an automap. Ultima Underworld 2 was very good also.

    To play it on a modern PC you would need something like DOSBox
    http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1

    Diablo II - digital crack is all I can say. I was hooked on this for a long time, and they are still releasing new features in patches to this day on Battlenet

    System Shock - a hybrid rpg/fps this game really immersed you in the environments. System Shock II was also great

    To play it on a modern PC, check the forum at:
    http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69578

    Ultima IV - I had made over 500,000 moves when I completed this game. This game set the standards for many RPGs. I played this on the Atari ST rather than the PC. It was also the first game to have MIDI music, which would blow you away if output to an external synth on the Atari's built in MIDI ports. This was the first game I remember that your actions had consequences and you had to follow the path of virtue to win the game.

    A remake for modern PCs is available here: http://xu4.sourceforge.net/

    Magic Carpet - One of the first games I remeber that featured flying over a 3D fractal landscape. I still play this at times in DOSBox

    F.E.A.R is not that great. All F.E.A.R is, is a bunch of high end graphics nothing we haven't experienced before.

    I beg to differ....In my opinion, and u are entitled to your own opinion, I believe that FEAR has redefined FPS. OK....maybe not FPS overall, but deff. the supernatural suspense category of FPS. I have never played a game like FEAR before in my life.

    And when I play that game alone at night, I .... I dont know......it is scary as hell.

    4 out of the 5 games I listed were RPGs, most were older but all were great games that set the standards for their particular genre of RPG.

    More recent good RPGs would be
    Morrowind
    Neverwinter Nights
    Arx Fatalis
    Gothic II
    Temple of Elemental Evil

    The original poster that started the thread also had 2 RPGs listed, KOTOR 1 & 2
