    Surprised to see two other people list KotOR 2. It is probably my favorite game as well. It was the first RPG I played (call me a zoomer) and since 2004 I've probably replayed it close to a dozen times. I won't deny it has some major flaws, but the dialogue, the interactions with the characters, and the quality of the writing all more than make up for it.

    It also introduced me to the Codex. Not sure what to make of that.

    Not sure anymore. It was 'Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory' for years! Next to the original Fallout. But I haven't played either in a long, long time now.

    Just 1 is hard... and so, in no particular order:

    • Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn - I think I have more than 15 000 hours in it by now. I've played it regularly for 15 years.
    • Planescape: Torment
    • Alpha Centauri
    • Septerra Core
    • The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (always unmodded)
    • Betrayal at Krondor
    • Dark Souls
    • Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer

    With a gun to my head I'd choose BG 2.

    Asked to play 1 thing for(ever) a long time... Morrowind or AC.



    I also would like to quietly protest at the idea of having just 1 favourite RPG. Ludicrous.

    Oh damn, since sorinmask mentioned it, Betrayal at Krondor is my favourite game of all time. No nostalgia needed, it's the best.

    M&M 6/7 would be close for me, even though they are janky and goofy, there is just something about it that makes them so replayable. Perfect example of a game where "the sum is greater than the parts". None of the individual aspects are exceptional but combined its perfect. I play these at least once a year, its like putting on those old track pants, so relaxing and comfortable.

    BUT if I have to pick ONE game, which as mentioned by others is stupid, then it has to be Fallout (1 of course). Its a beautiful piece of incline, and it combines all the things I love into one game.

    It wouldn't be fun otherwise. Imagine you have a cocked Desert Eagle .50 sitting on your temple.

    Guild Wars (the original trilogy). It's not, in my opinion, the best game ever made (that would be Thief II: The Metal Age, which I think is flawless) but it is my favourite.

    It is kind of like playing an aliens movie - atmosphere is done extremely well. The amount of panic the game generates when the regenerating boss appears ... but of you don't like scary games stay away.

    Overall, probably Deus Ex or Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Either or, too tough of a call to make for me.

    I'd argue that in its vanilla state, Q3A wasn't particularly good and the game only became great once the community modded it, but this isn't really a thread for why XYZ game is the best but rather just a thread about personal favourites so I can't be bothered.
