I tried playing Dragon's Dogma three separate times and just could not get into it. The game to me just lacked any bit of personality. I had a fun time playing Kindoms of Amulaur but only after I switched from keyboard to gamepad.

Same with Dragon's Dogma. Played the bit going from the beach/starting village going to the first big city. Maaaan... endless fields of...grass, intersected by what feels like a very long winded road to present a linear path from A to B. I'm sure I missed some secrets, but I felt no urge to find them...

And I'm sure there are fun character builds but again, I felt little urge to go and discover them. Maybe you need to not play this on a PC to get into it, console limitations sometimes do games like this a favor. And then you get the pawn system introduced to you... massively overcomplicated for something brutally simple. But one feeling persisted for me playing through all of this... the world feels so empty. Its really a graphical upgrade to some ancient form of RPG, open world represented not by theme park but by endless, long walks through nothing. Even that city. There's like what, 20 NPCs in it? Map design is ridiculous either way, as everything looks the same and the sense of 'its big' is created by making you walk the walk.

Most Final Fantasy games do a similar thing in terms of pacing, but somehow they get it right, areas are fun to explore, DD certainly does not. Same applies to personality. DD is soulless to the bone imho.

Blizzard is sadly its developer :). Joking aside, it is the real thing with better graphics. And that is all. Flavor wise for me it was still super solid.

We have already been treated with numerous massively improved versions of D2, I did play it, but never really stuck with it in a way I now can with say Path of Exile or Grim Dawn.

but with modren grapics like dragon age . but not skyrim :p and must be singleplayer focused

Very modern. It uses the 16-bit Windows windowing API, so you don't need to use those old DOS command prompts to play this game.

Try Grim Dawn or Titan Quest. For ARPGS Torchlight 1 & 2 also are pretty good. The Val Helsing franchise regularly gets deep discounts on Steam as well.

Besides it being 20 years late, it plays like how D2 did back then. How ever this is not a D&D game.

When they released the beta it played like it did 20 years ago, but it took them 20 years to add higher resolutions and now they want me to pay for it again, yeah right.

It might catch on but being a old long time player of D2 it's not what i want any more or want to run though 3000 times more + again ha.

But if it's story hell yeah as it has that for it still even though D3 was pretty much a let down the story is still even good in that.
But it's a ARPG

If you like the old-school pen and paper D&D, I'd avoid any games from Wizards of The Coast. If anything - Baldur's Gate 3 is probably your best option. Single-player, with option for co-op(incl. LAN, which is like finding a unicorn nowadays), decent reviews, and it's still being regularly updated and patched.
Also, if you just want to have fun without replaying Skyrim for the 100th time - try Enderal: Forgotten stories. It is based on TESV, but it's not just a mod. The whole game is revamped, with its own lore, character development, style, etc. Plus it's free, so if you don't like it - you don't lose anything. I've clocked around 120 hours in it. Excellent game.

This sounds like what the old Wizardry series turned into.
Got really weird after a certain point in the series, after Wizardry V in fact and it showed.
Wasn't a fan of all the Sci-Fi weirdness that got mixed in BUT if you're into such, it's something different to try one day.

I stopped playing the 1st act after about 15 hours or so simply because I was no longer leveling (I know there is a mod that lets you go past lv4) and to save some of the game once it gets past early access. That said, BG3 is going to be Witcher 3 good in my opinion.

It was good, didn't offer much long term playability. If you like Diablo 2, that is what it is. They added some long due bug fixes, but like the original D2X, the meta is still poorly balanced between characters, possibly slightly improved. The in game economy is a bit of a mess and manipulated by d2jsp users. If you like trading, you can make decent in game currency arbitrage trading between the in game, discords and d2jsp. I got three characters to level 90 and got decent gear and then stopped playing, felt like maybe 60 hours max.

Thought I'd share, discovered the new expansion is out for GW2 (has been since Feb lol, I forget this) and bought it. All I've been content with is just PVPing with the new talent trees :) Its still fun, game still works, and yep there is an endless amount of stuff you can still do to fill progression bars. To what end, you decide, but generally, yeah... to have fun I guess. Whatever tickles you most (PVP, PVE, team, solo, raiding, dungeons) is what you'll set out to do.

Too bad they had to do a China thing like every other game dev that releases a DLC. Even worse it spilled into the talent trees. Jade things, or whatever, it makes absolutely no sense. But a lot of things really didn't in the game to begin with :rolleyes: And Elementalist certainly did get an awesome new tree, and is finally among meta builds in conquest... also I never figured I'd see the class wielding a hammer :D

Also note the fashion statement

Bah, if you want to see a skill tree it has to be Path Of Exile haha. Enjoyed the GW but second one to me was trash, then again that was a long ass time ago so maybe they fixed EVRYTHING haha.

PoE is like 90% skill tree 10% game, GW2 is kinda polar opposite to that, and in both games you can't avoid doing every part of them.
The second GW is definitely not the first, I went in without expecting it to be, and enjoyed it for what it is: one of the most free MMO's you can play, in terms of things to do. Its the vision behind it, and it held up over all these years really. You don't have to invest a year of your life into being something in it, you just explore a world and whoever you bump into is someone that might and will likely help you somehow on the pve areas. Its very organic like that.

Doubt they fixed things because the game has been pretty much what it is now since beta :D Just more of everything and some refinements, mostly to grouped events, and balancing.

New might be Fractals, and its really the end game dungeon run fare, doing that trick quite well too.

If I was a kid - that'd be a big time-destroying plus, but I'm way too old for that stuff. Played for awhile through a main campaign solo, then things got a bit too complicated for my grey beard... :D
I still like the game, though. Even the second one is cool, regardless of criticism.

I still like the game, though. Even the second one is cool, regardless of criticism.
I'll plug this guy real quick, he really got me back into the game real fast. Perfect n00b guide!

Also, the build he does, is self found friendly and will do new leagues remarkably well. Just copy one of the league starters you think you'll fancy, we're too old to invent better wheels indeed ;)
Can recommend also to someone completely new. Its a great way to not fail yourself towards uninstalling.

PoE is like 90% skill tree 10% game, GW2 is kinda polar opposite to that, and in both games you can't avoid doing every part of them.
The second GW is definitely not the first, I went in without expecting it to be, and enjoyed it for what it is: one of the most free MMO's you can play, in terms of things to do. Its the vision behind it, and it held up over all these years really. You don't have to invest a year of your life into being something in it, you just explore a world and whoever you bump into is someone that might and will likely help you somehow on the pve areas. Its very organic like that.

Doubt they fixed things because the game has been pretty much what it is now since beta :D Just more of everything and some refinements, mostly to grouped events, and balancing.

New might be Fractals, and its really the end game dungeon run fare, doing that trick quite well too.
hehe, 90% kinda high there by a long shot as the gems\jewels are just as important.

Yeah i tried it way back and no they lost what they had kinda like Dragon Age did.

and allready played elden ring. gives me more stress than i can relax
During my brief search, I came across a game called "The Quest" on Steam. It looks a lot like my job, except it's not based on a party. No level cap, respawning monsters, turn-based gameplay... sounds promising!

If that doesn't fit the bill, I have to agree that it was its own thing.
