Throwing in my 2 cents as well. I am an avid adventure gamer but was very curious about RPGs. I bought Divine Divinity earlier this year. It was my first RPG. I enjoyed it but it was missing something. I just started Sacred and love it. It does have an awful lot of fighting though so you are probably safer trying the suggestions of the experienced RPG players. But I strongly recommend you give it a try. You click once on the enemy and just hold the mouse button to get rid of the baddies evil .

Sacred too! Dang, I have too many games to play, and not enough time.

Milee, you are not alone, many people here have tried RPG's and notice a distinct change in their enthusiasm when it comes to going back to adventure games.

I like to call it "Stepping to the Dark Side" (which is also a song from the broadway musical, Dreamgirls), after which one of 2 things will happen: either you stay here and play more RPG's or even action games exclusively, or you balance your game time between adventures and RPG's/Action games. Either way, choose whatever games keep your interest, there's room for everyone here.

Hi Popcorn!
I got through my first semester as a grad student. It was rough but well worth it. smile I play games whenever I have the chance. Sometimes I can get away with playing, sometimes I can't play games for a couple weeks cause I'm so busy! But that's life. My fellow students and I like to tell ourselves that playing games is "research" since we're going into computer graphics. lol

I have definitely crossed over to the "Dark Side" because I play RPGs and Action games almost exclusively. I'll still play an adventure or two, but I definitely have much less enthusiasm to play them than I used to have. Especially when it comes to "Myst clones" - I avoid them, because they bore me now. I used to love them! Weird, huh... If I play an adventure game, it's probably of the 3rd person variety.

Hi Schwab35!

"Myst" was what got me into computers and games to begin with. Started one because of the other (VERY late bloomer). Didn't think I could surprise myself with anything anymore evil ----think I'll sit a spell

Folks, hi,

If you're coming from adventures and want a great RPG to try... you could do worse than:

Fallout

It was my first RPG, and I've been hooked ever since. I'm also a huge Divinity fan:

Divine Divinity

Not to mention:

Planescape: Torment

Or:

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Most of those have already been mentioned in this thread. Just confirming that they are amongst the best RPGs ever made.

Merry Xmas,
Steve

So what I was wondering, is there any games that I could get; that are sort of easy for me to work my way into.
Where I can take a moment to think out my moves or prepare myself for a quick action scene etc.
This can also mean RPG or Adventure/Action
You could look for action/adventures that have a god mode. It keeps you from getting killed while you pore over the manual figuring out which button you use to pull your gun out.

The Fifth Disciple is good - almost an adventure game with a type of turn-based combat that is more like a strategy minigame than combat. Unfortunately the place that used to sell it overseas is out of it, so you'd probably have to buy it used.

Maybe you just don't like Myst.
But it's not atypical to want to play a different type of game for a while. You may eventually find you get bored with RPG's and want to play an adventure instead.

I have to add Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader (2003) to the above, it was first RPG that I liked so much that I actually played it. Fights don't have any special moves, you just choose the weapon and click your enemy to death and you can also rumble through your inventory under the pause and prepare for the next step, I've combined the sword for the close battle and magic fire for far reach. Storyline was like a good fantasy book to me.

I havent played many RPG's but Morrowind is funny. Huge and overvelming at first, but it gets better smile
My first RPG was Arcanum, and that one was difficult. But since I'm stubborn, I continued.
I'm not sure I ever replay it, but it was fun in a strange way smile
I don't recomend it as a first though.

Caroline.

Hey Aggie! Glad to hear your first semester went well. I didn't lie about not needing a jacket, did I? Funny that you've gone to the dark side...I've bounced back and forth, playing one type exclusively for a while and then the other. Happiest at the present time playing both.
