    In need of a new game. Suggestions?

    Post by ErrJon6661 on Thu Dec 27, 2012 6:56 pm

    Looking for suggestions of a new game to get. I don't have the spare cash to try a ton of them out and I really don't trust most review venues so I'm coming to a community that understands games in more or less the same way I do.


    So for a point of reference:

    Favorite games of the past:
    Dark Souls
    Elder Scrolls oblivion
    Fallout 3
    Borderlands one and two
    Dragons Dogma
    Armored core for answer

    I've been tossing around getting the ultimate edition of Fallout NV or Skyrim as I currently don't own a fallout or elder scrolls game. But I've heard flip floppy opinions about them. If anyone has suggestions that I haven't talked about or anything let me know. I basically only play action rpg type games because nothing else really holds my interest.

    I'm at work so these are just off the top of my head (I'll look at the collection when I get home XD)... Also, I'm going with some pretty obscure action RPGs in hopes you've not heard of them or just forgot about them =) Mostly PS3 suggestions

    Demon’s Souls-14-20 buck… I know this is the obvious answer and I’m sure you’ve played it (maybe). If not though it’s a great time to pick it up. If you love Dark Souls there is no question you’ll enjoy this game.

    Kindoms of Amalur: Reckoning- $25 bucks or less Action RPG that can be satisfying in the combat/job system but the other systems in the game can drag it down and make it boring. I.E. the quest markers hold your hand and most of the time you don’t even listen to what anyone says to you. You just end up going from dot to dot to dot to get exp lol.

    Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll- $25 bucks… The guys who make Dynasty Warriors made this game and it shows, so if you love those games you’ll love this one. My only gripe with it really is that it can start to feel samey (questing in the same areas over and over etc etc) while going through it. A lot of people hate the fact that all of the towns are based off of text menus and such (just like Dynasty Warriors =P). This game is perfect for the action RPG fan on the go. It’s really Arcade-like pick up and play so I’d recommend playing it while you have another game as you’re main attraction.

    Neir- $14.99-20 bucks! It’s a great game, has a great story, has amazing music (go find the album on Itunes!)… but it’s not polished at all. Some of the questing (which I personally didn’t mind) can be grating to some people as well because it’s a lot of fetching. Overall though to me it’s an RPG for the person who just wants to sit back and relax while playing.

    Darksiders 2- THQ going bankrupt it should be on sale for 35 bucks or less…I think this game is a step up from Kindoms of Amlaur, because the quests are a little more interesting. You’re not going to get the big difference in classes like you would in Amalur but the combat is satisfying and the loot collecting is decent. My only issue with it is that you get to a certain point and either are so addicted with it and love it or you just give up and lose interest lol.

    I would tell you to forget all this and go buy Dragon’s Dogma now but you’ve already got that so… moving on lol.

    Star Ocean: The Last Hope- $25 bucks or so.. This isn’t really a action RPG so you might want to just disregard but… you do have control over your character as you fight and it’s a pretty good game. Stay away if you dislike JRPGs…

    Infamous 2- Think this is still free to PS+ members =) It’s not really an RPG… but I recommend it to anyone who loves action games in general. Awesome sand-box, awesome powers, good story, and just fun to play.

    Zone of the Enders HD collection- 39.99 I believe… I only added this one because I saw you have Armored Core For Answer =). If you get the collection ignore the 1st game and just go straight to the 2nd. It’s a really short game and you’ll probably tear through it in 8-9 hours but I think it’s a great game

    Well those are my PS3 action RPGs off the top of my head… I know I’m forgetting something… Oh well I’ll add more if I think of them XD

    It looks like you like a lot of FPS type action RPG as well and you might want to play it safe and just go with Fallout NV (which I’ve never played so I’m not recommending just saying).



    **Edit- Ohh yeahh... the Mass Effect Trilogy just got a release on PS3 as well.. If you're into that sort of science fiction type setting. It's a very good third person shooter rpg-ish series.

    You seem to like pretty much Action-RPGs like me.

    Here are my suggestions:

    Demon's Souls
    Diablo 3
    Legend of Grimrock (it's pretty good, give it a chance)
    Skyrim (obviously, pick it over Fallout all the way)
    Torchlight 2

    Going off Action-RPG genre:

    Lone Survivor (2D survival horror with awesome music)
    Cave Story+ (2D action-shooter, very deep and hard, just like Dark Souls)
    Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (First Person Action Medieval Game lol, look it up in YouTube to see what I mean)
    Natural Selection 2 (too complex to explain, look for reviews)

    And all warhammer 40k games post Dawn of War (including it ) are great.

    I've decided to wait out skyrim until they do a game+dlc combo like bethesda does with most of their games. Ending up grabbing fallout nv ultimate for like $20.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, definitely going to check most of these out as I have like $40 left to spare big grin

    - Demon's Souls, especially if you've never played it before.

    - Skyrim is good, now after a few patches that were much needed.

    - Borderlands 1/2, if you like loot-based games like Diablo.

    - Armored Core V, the best one so far. I'm a huge AC fan.
