What are the best RPG games in Xbox 360?
« on: January 11, 2010, 09:43:47 AM »

I have a hard time finding for the best RPG games in Xbox 360 as i did not want to waste my money on games that are not very enticing.As far as i have researched, the reviews from other websites are that Elder scrolls IV : Oblivion was the best. I thought of Fable 2 was also the best game. So what is your choice?

I've heard Borderlands was good :D but that's more like an action RPG, same with Brutal Legend.

Actually it depend how much you know about RPG, Oblivion is clearly a good game, but it's damn hard for a noob, the gameplay is clearly focused on RPG element only. If you are kinda new to RPGs I guess a action/rpg game like Boderlands, Brutal Legend or Fable is a good way to introduce yourself to RPGs

I'm currently enjoying both Fallout 3 and Dragon Age on the Xbox. Both of them are good RPGs.

Fallout 3 has guns too, which is a big plus. :P

Fallout 3 is not a good RPG, but it's a fun game.

FO3 would be a lot more fun if it's gameplay consisted of more than just "spam vats, win fights".

And was on a better engine.

I played it like a FPRPG anyways, alot like Borderlands.

It needs an actual accuracy system, rather than a cone of fire that's bigger or smaller depending on your weapon skill.

FO3 is the worst RPG made ever, there's not a single part of that game thats redeemable. It's like oblivion, boring combat, poor dialogue and story, boring environment. Get a PC if you want to play any RPG as they play better on a PC anyway.

Also lol at dragon age for 360, jesus. if you're getting dragon age get it for pc.

You can't even pull that excuse out after what they actually did to it to make it what it is now.

Yeah, true. I didn't really care that much, about half the time I just said "fuck this" and pulled out a stunstick or tire iron.

And a game that doesn't bork itself for no reason (If you've got all the addons, one addon will break the whole game because they're both modding some item and Failout* doesn't like that). I stopped playing when it started CTDing whenever I tried to leave Rivet City during "You Gotta Shoot 'Em In The Head". Even had the Unofficial patch for it.

I suppose it was a bit of fun the first time, exploring a huge world + things. But then I got to the end of the game in Adams AFB + I had to steal a set of Enclave power armor to survive. (Wore Combat Armor once I got it, I like being able to go sneak sneak rather than CLANK CLANK)

But yeah, I played it on the PC. So glad I didn't pay a cent for it.

(*I refuse to use it's official name. I even edited the Steam shortcut to Failout 3 a couple days in. )

I bought the fucking collectors edition as I had hoped that Bethesda had learned from Oblivion and looked to morrowind in how to create interesting worlds but I was sadly mistaken.

New Vegas might turn out to be good because of Obsidian. The Game Byro engine will always be a piece of shit but atleast Obsidian will be able to make it an interesting well written piece of shit.

You must have some pretty high standards man. I'm ejoying it a lot.

Anyway, the TV that the 360 is attached has a large screen and big speakers, switching over to a PC would be detrimental to enjoyability/immersion/couch availability/etc.
