    There are plenty of classic RPG's that I enjoy that many on the Codex would also agree are great. FO2 just had a really shitty combat system, and that coupled with the fact that it's absolutely disgusting to look at, made it difficult for me to keep playing. I plan to revisit it in the future, and I never said the game sucks, just can't get into it at the moment.

    It's mental that so many people voted for Dragon Age. Could someone elaborate on why they think it's better?

    :what:

    I think you took a wrong turn somewhere on the information superhighway (that’s a thing we used to call the internet when you were still breastfeeding). I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but not many here will take you seriously until you’ve played at least the original Fallout. The first one is unparalleled. Until you’ve played the absolute best games in the genre, you don’t really have a decent basis of comparison when it comes to discussing CRPGs. Educate yourself.

    Lilura is actually being very kind by deigning to take you even half seriously. Although she can be very judgmental, her above statement is simply a fact and not a personal opinion. While nothing you say matters—it’s true—you can still listen. Maybe you’ll learn something.


    Er, never mind. Lost cause.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    The difference between DA: O and DF is that of two mediocrities. Both games have great potential but barely make use of it because the encounters are mostly uninspired.

    DF's itemization and character creation are two aspects that are superior to DA. On the other hand, you can mod Dragon Age to provide challenging encounters that require tactical thinking without much in the way of RNG. The equivalent in Deadfire, which is upward scaling, is a band-aid that's either insufficiently challenging or results in a bit of a RNG-fest where you pray your attacks breach the defensive wall of probability. Perhaps this will change as the modding for Deadfire matures, but for now Origins edges ahead.

    You should. Fallout 2 sucks. Fallout is quality over quantity, Fallout 2 is quantity over quality.

    I feel like this is comparing two equally bad combat engines.

    Sorry not sorry I just prefer turnbased.

    Never played and never will play POE 2 so I'm gonna go with POE 1 VS DA:O



    both suck and I quit DA:O within 3-4 hours and POE 1 within like 5.




    I also played these during a dry period where the only rpgs I played within about a 7 year stretch from 2009-2015 were Fallout 3, Fallout NV,alpha protocol and Wasteland 2 and I guess if you count Shadowrun returns but that game was even worse then the above.






    Oh yeah thinking about it I also played both those shitty Drakensang games around this time but quit both within an hour or two.

    I give a fuck? The fact that you give credence to someone like Lilura is indicative of the hive mind mentality present in the echo chamber that is Codex. I haven't played FO yet, and I definitely need to get it, that doesn't invalidate my opinion on other games that I have played.
    Nah, she's a retard. Listening to someone rail against the EE of a game for no reason other than principle, even though it made an entire genre of games accessible to a completely new audience of people just proves that they're so fucking nostalgia blind and stupid that they're not worth listening to.
    Look, another retard! Fallout 2 has a garbage opening area, and the combat is mind numbingly slow. That's an objective fact, even people who like Fallout 2 often rail against the Temple and the opening village. Pull your head out of your ass.

    RTwP shite, but I remember having a bit of fun with DA:O, mostly because I enjoyed toying with AI settings, but I have never truly enjoyed any incarnation of RTwP tbh, it always devolves into a massive clusterfuck.

    PoE was just shitty infinity engine combat, with an even worse character system...

    Besides we're getting decent games again, no reason to reminisce about the horrible games we slogged through during the drought

    You are a dishonest little piece of shit,aren't you Safav Hamon? The whole debate was about which games was better and not about the combat,but you decided to go for the combat for reason that we all know. Your just the embodiment of a sjw infiltrator,at least ItsChon is obvious Drog troll. I really do hope you choke on a handful of grounded glass! 90% of your posts are dishonest shit about why deadfire is such a great game.

    I liked Shadowrun: Dragonfall quite a bit.

    Otherwise the incline era has been surprisingly vertically challenged.

    I am a film critic. Have never seen Coppola or Hitchcock movie but that doesn't invalidate my opinion on other movies.

    Interesting, I wasn't aware of any such mods for DA:O. Do you have a list?
