    I've never played it; I've heard it's good however never played it.

    Just so you guys know I still play games like Age of mythology and Rome total war so I'm fairly "old school" (probaly sound smug saying that)

    thanks

    The RPG genre of video games predates the RTS genre (the games you're describing), so it's even more "old school" I guess.

    But yeah, it's a great game if fantasy role playing games at all interest you. It sells for just a couple of quid in every Steam Sale and can probably be found really cheap from somewhere year-round, so for less than a tenner it's well worth it.

    I'm in the opposite camp, I really cannot get into the Fallout series no matter how hard I try!

    I can't get into Skyrim either :laugh: Bought it in the Steam sale and within a few hours it overwhelmed me with the massive scale of it all

    That's the joy of it, even with the base game and no mods/expansions there's so much to do! I've poured hundred of hours into saves in the past and not even touched the main storyline :ahee:

    Same with Fallout :awesome: The main story is excellent, but the hunting and the vault exploration is brilliant too and there are hundreds upon hundreds of story mods to go through. Some are even voiced :ahee: Give Fallout another go!

    If you're looking for a good RPG experience, I really wouldn't recommend skyrim. It's been casualized to the point where it's more of an action game rather than a proper RPG. It's ok when I load it up with mods, but Vanilla skyrim is garbage. If you don't mind the aged graphics I would recommend Morrowind, the almost universally agreed best game in the series, but TW2, DA:O, and Dark Souls are all good RPG games.

    Skyrim is boss. I need to give Fallout another ago, I struggled with 3 during my first playthrough (kept dying really early on and eventually ragequit).

    Not really sure what Age of Mythology or Rome Total War have to do with Skyrim since they're RTS and completely different types of games...

    It's a decent game, not incredible and got boring for me because of the two dimensional characters and samey quests and identical monotonous dungeons. Exploring the world and combat is pretty fun though. As mentioned if you can get it on a Steam sale for like £3 as is fairly regular then it's definitely a worthwhile buy.

    If you want to play an old school awesome RPG then get KOTOR on humble bundle like I mentioned in the thread I posted today

    Not really. It's an interesting game but soon enough you get tired of "you're the special one, now go and fetch me xx" quest lines. As poster above says - use the HB and get Kotor games whilst you can. They're amazing.

    It's OK if you load it up with mods, but I do agree that vanilla skyrim is terrible.

    In my opinion it is the best game ever so yeah I would say you are missing out

    Its a game that I have found you are never stuck for something to do. I played it for 3 months straight almost daily and never got bored which shocked me. I have all the extra dlcs too. Dawnguard was probably my favourite out of those. Still have the dragonborn questline to finish.
