    Hey all, right now i'm not going through the best of times, and i wanted a nice game with a great story to cheer me up, however these days it's really hard to find, i many will suggest a game like Fallout, which while it is great, it's more of a "world" storyline where the world has a great backstory, however your main storyline is not actuley very fleshed out, like oblivion, if you get what i mean?

    So i dont mind if this game is 20 years old, or is out now, or what platform it's for, i'm open to suggestions and it will be interesting to see what people's favourite storylines are!

    MMO's or singleplay?
    i don't like too many RPGMMO's but for single play i'd have to say dungeon siege 2, and KOTOR 1 and 2, they are slightly dated but nothing beats an awesome storyline which kotor provides, in fact there isnt' a game i've played that imo has a better story line than kotor though if anyone else has other suggestions please say so, i've been wanting to play a nice RPG that has an awesome storyline like KotOR did.

    yes, FFX will definately cheer you up, and runs excellent on emulation. Hit me up if you want "more info" on the game.
    EDIT: so youve already played that, lol.
    hmm...
    when im down, I like to play some guitar hero 3 on the pc to cheer me up, that is one of my favorite games.
    Also, single player games, or snes emulation is pretty nice. Bioshock is A++, and helped me through my deployment, talk about being down...

    Kingdom Hearst 2 was pretty sweet. Cant go wrong with any FF imo. I picked up FF 1+2 for GBA for super cheap and it brought back some nostaligic memories.

    Zelda is one of my all time favs! Not too long, just long enough for a decent adventure.

    Hehe thanks, it's nice knowing your not alone, and thanks for the suggestions, i've actuley never played a guitar hero, but i've heard there pretty good so i guess i'll have't to check them out :toast:

    Can't say i have, but i bet it does look alot better, What do those mods do if i may ask? :)

    @ mlee yes i agree, zelda LTTP is my all time favourite game, and game series :)

    @ a_ump single player preferred, but mmos can be good too, just take alot more time which is not always free ;)

    Thanks for the suggestions tonight guys, i'm off to bed and maybe there is a few more when i wake up :)

    Neverwinter Nights 1 + x pacs \2 + x pacs and The Witcher all though i enjoyied NWN1 more than NWN2 and The Witch was built upon NWN1's game engine as all so has a good story.

    my bro played The Witcher, it had something new going on where your sword moves' imitate what you do with your mouse, or something like that it looked pretty cool though i have no idea on storyline

    The Witcher and Mass Effect both had stellar stories (the ladder is probably my favorite in recent memory). Neither are really traditional RPGs though. FFVIII and KOTR were some of my favorite stories from yester-year.

    NWN 2 should of been done the same way not the greatest graphic but gameplay and story in The Witcher is very nice, sure The Witcher is not perfect but it is much better game as it runs on the NWN1 game engine.

    And i have played them all so i do know what there all like. Well tomorrow be buying the 2nd x pac too NWN2 which i hope they done a better job this time around but there's hoping for you. Not all a loss though as a friend or 2 will play online in COOP just for the story.

    i thought that NWN 2 looked pretty good, though the robes and clothing looked kinda bland, guess that would be textures? but everything else like chainmail and stuff looked nice on it, it sure as hell taxed my computer when it was running full, i thk like 34 FPS average at 1680x1050 max settings 4xaa 16xaf, something like that it kinda shocked me :laugh:

    Gothic 1 (rather old by now, but for some people it still creates addiction :laugh:)
    Gothic 2 + The Night of the Raven

    Great story, nice gameplay but they ruined it with Gohtic 3 (the story still is good though)

    Later edit : you can add Gothic 3 Forsaken Gods to the list (released this Friday)
    Later edit 2 : added some links

    Zelda A link to the past ha always been a favourite among mine, but story wise it is not actually that strong.

    When it comes to a games story, the one I liked the most must have been Unreal 2's, it was just amazing but way too short.

    Mass effect is pretty good too, but the story is too grand for my taste. I really dislike the whole 1 person (or a couple) whom are the only that can save the world/universe. Too big to get really immersed in.
    Kusimeka says thanks.
