    Best stories in an RPG

    Greetings. Now, I know what you might be thinking: "Stories in an RPG? Combat is king! This nigga is surely mad!" Perhaps that might be so, but let's talk a bit about what are possibly the best stories in any RPG. Planescape Torment, all memes and storyfaggotry aside, is arguably one of the...

    Retarded mechanics/features that never works out

    Recently I've been thinking about all the bad designs and features that I've encountered in my short journey with RPGs and games in general that somehow are repeated over and over again and they are always hot mess and pretty much never work out. I would like to dedicate this thread to gather as...

    Worst examples of nonsensical railroading.

    Remember Khrorinis in Gothic 2? There are 7 ways to get into the city. During the trial of fire, there are also N ways to do the quests in G2, but some games insist in doing the opposite and forcing the player into a corridor. Some examples. NWN2 OC During the OC(original campaign), you must...

    Wraith: The Oblivion

    Did anyone of you ever play Wraith: The Oblivion? If so,what were your experiences? Is it worth it? The setting seems pretty great,very dark and hopeless in tone.

    Fallout 2 was always incline

    No, Fallout 1 isnt better than 2 Fallout 1's better pacing and sense of urgency werent enough to justify it being better than its sequel and you should accept it. Not only density of content but quality itself is consistently higher on the sequel and i will discuss some of those points here...
  6. Incline Best Turn Based RPG With 5-8+ Units/Characters That Has A Strong Affliction/DoT Build Option

    So I've played GW1 which while not TBS has lots of characters + a half decent set of stacking/synergizing Afflictions and DoTs. I'd like something 5-10x more expansive. Ideally singple player, and obvious TBRPG not ARPG. I've gotten a recommendation for Etrian Odyssey but that seems to be...
  7. In a world where everything will be destructible. The stories, items, quests, and creatures can generate infinitely. how's that sound? in development

    Dnd adventures: Wizard's Choice

    I didn't plan to start a new thread but couldn't find Dnd adventures: Wizard's Choice mentioned anywhere in the forum - and I didn't want people to miss out because it slipped under the radar. I know I can't be the only person out there who grew up loving that gritty roleplaying experience that...

    Why so few games with permadeath/ironman/hardcore modes?

    I was re playing M&M VI/VII/VIII and was planning to complete the trilogy till 10 January, where I will have to go back to work. You can see M&M VI screenshots and M&M VII screenshots in the screenshot thread. But M&M 8 - Day of the destroyer is my least favorite M&M game. So I changed my mind...
  11. RPGs with the Best Tumor

    I love how good tumor grounds an RPG, and I'd say that it's this factor which attaches me to a game more than anything. In fact some pretty ropey or average games can be very enjoyable if they contain good tumor. So which games fall into that category for you? Off the top of my head, those...

    Incline RPGs with the Best Humor

    Story, gameplay, atmosphere etc. All important elements to an RPG, but I have a real weak spot for RPGs which give me genuine laughs and include good banter. I love how good humor grounds an RPG, and I'd say that it's this factor which attaches me to a game more than anything. In fact some...

    So how often do you Homebrew?

    How frequent is your homebrew to non-homebrew ratio's when you do RPG games? I find myself always messing with things every time I do a game, doing alternate settings, or changing Metaplot and history often heavily ect. My games change things a lot from the corebooks often. This is more...

    RPG's with great cryomancy/hydromancy/etc

    I have a topic to discuss necromancy in RPG's ( https://rpgcodex.net/forums/threads/best-necromancy-on-rpgs.130867/ ), Other aspect of magic which I really enjoy is the cryomancy, hidromancy and similar stuff. Recently, I tried to do a Azata Cryomancer(Elemental specialist - cold) run in PF:WoTR...

    What determines the immersion of a RPG?

    I can't just write a definition, however, IMO there are a couple of things which increases the immersion. Mechanics and lore being in line and making sense in the context First person perspective Music fitting the ambiance. More realistic or gothic artstyle. High lethality(except in few...

    We need more RPGs like Baba Is You

    The title is a clickbait, but I think there is something in Baba Is You [BIY] that game designers could use to make RPGs more interesting than they usually are. Here is a very short video on BIY (yes, I consider 15 minutes video to be a short one): Why do I think there is something that can...

    Imprisoned Hyperion - first-person RPG inspired by Arx Fatalis

    Also the kick from Dark Messiah. Developer made another (seemingly more simpler) first-person action RPG and a first-person puzzle game, seemingly taking evolutionary steps toward making this kind of first-person RPG. The video doesn't show much and it seem they have a long way to go, but I...

    NSFW - My Lewd Humor Game

    Helga: Euphorium's Song is the first part in a new saga about a floating continent of Euphorium. Because Euphorium is isolated from everything else, the people of Euphorium have become quite strange over the years and very open about their sexualities and their deviancy. However, this floating...
  22. Incline Actively participate in the creation of an RPG? How willing would you be?

    I've started work on a small(ish) rpg, as a side-passion project. I'm fleshing out the docs for now, stats and so forth. Probably soon will start working on a prototype in Godot. Not going to spoil the surprise (cause It's the second day I've worked on it so I have little idea) but ... it's...

    Decline RPGs that you regret finishing

    Mine has to be Dragon Age 2. I really enjoyed Origins, so much so that I managed 6 full playthroughs, and it's story left me wanting more. DA:2 arrived and it was a torturous, painful slog from start to finish, but I kept pushing through it with the hope that some of that "9/10" quality may...
