    Don't we, shitslurping fag? You made a thread about defiled RPG series and Bethesda did that.
    What mods do or don't is irrelevant. Otherwise discuss what games you think were saved by mods.

    A shame that TBT IV (1992) was never made.

    Fuck you, I had forgotten about that one.

    But still nothing compares to the abomination that is beamdog. I mean their whole business model is based around the rape of the IE games. They are like the unholy lovechild of EA and George Lucas. EA might kill the future of every studio it acquires but you can still get the original games. Lucas might go back and respite his own backlog for all eternity, but it is at least his. But Beamdog just exists to rape and defile what others have created. And not only are they raping the corpse they go around telling everyone he's a tranny.

    They are by far the most vile and despicable studio ever to have existed. Oh and got is 100% complicit in promoting them and removing the original titles from sale.

    But then again, who else would have ported NWN1 with mod support to android phones where this game belongs?

    Actually yes we are, cumadoring fag, you are absolutely right, because after all it was Bethesda that did the raping.
    What mods do is not irrelevant though, when determining whether it can be a fabulous rpg, even if we don't have to thank Bethesda for it.

    God, they are not even trying to be discrete.

    Basically, the fallout franchise got AIDS, herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea and is now developing terminal metastasised cancer after a long exposure to HPV.

    Ultima and Gothic of course come to mind. Also Quest for Glory, it especially hurt since the series killer was a sequel to the best game in the series, the fourth one. Hell it even got in the Codex's list in a respectable position albeit considered a hybrid and not a pure RPG experience. It just felt so disappointing to depart from the beautiful visuals, memorable story/quests and setting and enter the era of uncanny 3D uggo graphics, which were used just because the tech was new and exciting at the time, barely any memorable and clever puzzles and a setting that was barely fleshed out although already emulating the very popular Ancient Greek theme.

    For me, pool of radiance. Ruins of myth drannor is one of the worst games I've played. Yeah, new fallout/TES games are an abomination, and I'm tempted to give them the honor, but there's still some novilties there that give it a half a point.

    The sucky thing about RoMD is that the mechanics are there, but the game fails on a design level on every game aspect. Outside of some cosmetics, there's nothing good about this game.

    I would say that Jagged Alliance 2 got it worse than fallout.

    At least, with Bethesda, you know that they neither have the skills nor the wish to make a fallout game. You may try one or two of their crap, and then, the hope is stripped from you for life. (although, there are great mods and spiritual successors around the corner.)

    On the other hand, there are so many people of unknown reputation trying their hand on Jagged Alliance. Studio with big or small publishers, kickstarter etc... Once in a while, some of them might get convincing enough to give you hope that they might get the formula right, and then, you get disapointed big time. The pain is always bigger when you had hope.

    CRPG: Fallout
    JRPG: Final Fantasy

    The defilement of the Fallout series was already bad with Fallout 3 and 4, it's downright insane how they're trying to kill of the series with Fallout 76. The last good Final Fantasy game was 9 (the combat in 10 was good, the rest was shit).

    If we're including Gazebo stuff: The Star Wars Expanded Universe. WEG's RPG was the basis of the entire universe beyond what was shown in the films (since there was very little in Splinter of the Mind's Eye to base a world on), even the Thrawn Trilogy pulled from it (primarily names of stuff, but Zahn made good use of the Interdictors). Now Disney literally publishes stuff with an entire chapter devoted to farts.

    Dungeon Keeper was defiled, but it's not really an RPG. At least it's little more than the skin wrapping some pavlovian money making scheme. I'd say stuff like porting the sinfully ugly mobile version of FFVI to PC is an even more abhorrent crime, since it basically makes it so that the product that's actually being legally sold is the worst option when it comes to playing the game.

    Just tell some muslims that the EA HQ is holding a pro-Israeli summit and let nature take its course.

    I wonder if Mass Effect sequels were been such decline if EA didn't purchased the company.

    Deus Ex. Invisible War ruined the franchise in a single game.

    Fallout, TES, Deus Ex.

    Deus Ex was killed by Invisible War (although corporate necromancers trying resurrect it's corpse only to kill again). TES and Fallout in eternal sex slavery with lore-rape and mechanics castration.

    Yes, but Ultima was a franchise of 12 games before the 13th killed it in 1 shot. Quite literally from the best of the series to the OMFGWTFISTHISSHIT KILLITWITHFIRE!!! in one game after 12 very successful ones.

    The Ultima series has been defiled so many times, first Ultima VI, then pagan, then online.
