    Why pay when you could just play chess and trash talk in the chat.

    Already do that, but if it's to play the same thing forever, I'd not be complaining about the lack of good new rpgs.

    So another game is born from success of Disco Elysium?

    The schism grows...

    It would be fun making a no combat RPG on the 17th century Europe where you are a peasant on the Holy Roman Empire, it would be a wonderful experience.

    I just wonder what kind of gameplay will they use to fill in for combat (mechanics, systems, related activities, etc).

    I mean, surely… *surely* they won’t just copypaste Disco and make everything dialog.

    A RPG where 80% of choices lead to a Swedish drink.

    It would be a nice RPG, you just need to not die for 30 years, your character wife might even be only raped once.

    On wikipedia: "The adventures of Simplicissimus became so popular that they were reproduced by authors in other European countries. Simplicissimus was recreated in French, English, and Turkish."

    Now that's interesting, time to find that Ottoman manuscript of the book.

    They actually made a critically-acclaimed peasant simulator in Korea. Didn't get a lot of good player reviews though for some reason.

    Looking forward to the day Sawyer releases a patch that rebalances all of your suspects' motivations, motives and agendas. :balanced:

    Can we get the "balanced" button as emoji please?

    it takes the isometric and some equipment juggling to hypnotize the codexian crowd, adding dice rolls on top of that was an overkill (especially since the game plays out the same anyway lmao)
    Torment didn't have dicerolls instead opting for flat skill checks for gating content, which was often suboptimal for non-mages anyway simply bc of exp boosts

    I've been telling you nerds that Football Manager is the most in depth and immersive RPG for decades. Tens of stats, all dynamically growing, for tens of players on your team, for tens of teams in your league, for tens of leagues in your country, for tens of countries all being simulated.

    Sports-RPG's (Hybrids in general without restrictions)

    Inazuma Eleven
    Pyre
    GBC/GBA Mario Golf/Tennis
    Golf Story
    Blood Bowl
    Captain Tsubasa (Shitload of them, some more, some less)
    Chaos League
    M.U.D.S
    Blitzball in FFX
    Xtreme Sports (GBC)
    Pangya
    Racing Lagoon

    Just off the top of my head. Probably forgetting quite a few here. Also of course, depends on your rpg definition. As I said without restrictions.

    Edit: (Technically you could put Battle Golfer Yui here, but that game is so light on mechanics that it's even stretching the flimsy definitions here)
