I am an avid PC RPG Gamer. Sadly however, these days I do not get to play games that much as it has been overshadowed by my other passions i.e. my job (yes, I am passionate about it), my son, my family and Aries.
But my love for it has not faded. It lingers inside. I am sure that when all my kids have grown up and I am entering retirement, I'll be holed up in my room, saving a kingdom from evil..hehe
So anyways. Here is my top 6 most fave RPG games ever!!!
6 - Final Fantasy VII
I was so obsessed with this game. I think it took me about 6 months to complete. After that I played it 2 more times. The characters each have their own developed storyline and quests in finding themselves. Tifa, Cloud,Aeris, Menina..ahhhh the memories..
The graphics were like so grand at the time it came out. But I tell you when Advent Children came around (pic as below), it was just awesomeness. This is my fave character by the way..
He is so hot for an undead guy!!!!
5 - Final Fantasy VIII
My No. 5 on the list. With an engaging love triangle - love comes slowly sort of storyline. The characters touches your heart. The woman in the pic is Rinoa by the way.
4 - Final Fantasy VI
The game is absolutely a classic. It has I think one of the longest storylines in Final Fantasy history and like a ton of characters. Terra, Celes, Locke, the espers.. wow...i get excited remembering how great it was. Graphics was 2D but the story engages you to the core. I would play it all over again if I had the time.
3 - Final Fantasy IV
I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this game. Being an early installment of the Final Fantasy series, the graphics are not much to look at. But this was one game that moved me to tears time and time again while playing. Love, hatred and sacrifice was the underlying theme of the game and the cut scenes was touching and at time even heart wrenching to watch. It definitely is, in my opinion the best Final Fantasy game of the whole series.
2. Baldur's Gate - Shadows of Amn
The endless side-quests, mystery, the fact that romance can be forged between characters throughout the storyline, the endless banter between the characters, the fact that the game can be tweaked or mods can be installed are just some of the reasons why I love this game. Every time I played and re-played the game, there is always something new. The possibilites of the storyline was just endless. It was pure addiction.
This is by far, the best RPG game that I have ever played. I played and re-played the game about 10 times and have always found something new. Just like Baldur's Gate, there are extensive modders out there who mods the game to add new quests and items to the game. The mysterious storyline, character and the fact that the realism of the game just takes you in.
