from memory it was immersion and setting. Although there are 2 main characters trying to convince you of the right choice ;)

oh Dosbox, that reminds me of another fine game that i shouold play more, Crusader: No Remorse and the sequal Crusader: No regret. essentially your the top of the law enforcement for the monopaly government type thing gone turncoat. You've seen them as an evil empire and set about taking them down.

Done as a 3rd person, camera set ay about 45 degrees. The second one had a few extra control commands. And found a fun christmas remix hidden among the sounds files ;)

Most of the story is told from conversations with the other NPCs; background is filled in mainly from recordings you find throughout the game (think audio diaries). Its a fantastic game from top to bottom.

Oblivion like some already said is an amazing game. Do be sure to make it even more mindblowing by adding mods to the game. There is a certain overhaul mod that makes the moblevels static like it is in generic RPG's.

Mass Effect is also highly recommended.

Witcher: Action RPG a-la-Jade Empire style but with adult themes and a gritty world.

You mentioned that your PC might not be able to handle newer games. Oblivion and Mass Effect you shouldn't even bother with if you cannot get a decent FPS without turning off a lot of the detail imo.

Baldur's Gate 2 + Throne of Bhaal + Romance/Banter mod = win

Planescape: Torment : Amazing plot. A lot of the focus on dialog instead of combat.

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines : Have to play it even if it is just for that bloody Hotel level.

Neverwinter Nights 1 + 2 + addons/expansions: Not as well done as Baldur's Gate, but still worth playing.

These are all games I own and still play. I cycle through them basically. By the time I am done with the last one, sufficient time has passed and I just start over again.

I can play Oblivion fine (medium-high). Is Mass Effect on the same kind of level, or are we talking Crysis-level?

And about Planescape... I did try it before because I heard it had a good story, and I love good stories. When I entered the game I noticed the low low resolution (reason why I love BG2, high resolutions), but decided to just play anyways for the sake of reading. It was nice, though when I got to the town (or whatever it was, don't remember), I just lost interest for some reason. Is there some point in the game where you just get more interested somehow? The start was good really.

A higher resolution really would help. :p

More than MOO2 but nothing too bad. Nothing as big as Moo3 when you turned all the helper AI's off :)
QuantumDelta wrote:Moo2 was a fairly good balance between micro and macro but Moo3 took it way too far.
Yes but MOO2 didn't have as much customization possibilities in my oppinion. MOO3 was a nice idea but it is hard to find the right balance between doing stuff yourself and letting the AI do it.

I second Planescape Torment. Best storyline driven RPG ever. Give it another try, honestly. Once you get into the story it blows you away. I guess the story really gets going when you get out of Sigil and start hopping around the planes, finding out more and more about yourself in the process. And boy, you were a piece of work.

If you like long, fairly open-ended RPGs, I'd try Sacred if you're able to find a copy.

Ok so I'm ... getting ... Mass Effect.

I'm REALLY hoping that it'll be worth the past week's wait.

If not, heads will roll.

I quite enjoyed it.

Pros:
Conversation system, woohoo
Semi non-linear plot progression

Cons:
Far too short of a game, unless you do the sidequests as well
LOOOOOONG elevator rides ftl
