It looked weird, but when I actually played it it was fun as hell. Conveniently, when I got home, it was the first time I actually used my computer for something other than homework (and minor flash games. This game introduced me to my slight addiction to my computer).

Looking back at the time I spent on it (nearly 5-6 years) I, suprisingly, regret nothing. One of my best and my most nostalgic memories of my childhood comes from that game, and I can honestly say I wouldn't have wanted any other way of growing up.

Similarities, anyone?

Same here. Spent 4 years on that game and loved every minute of it... until I got hacked.

I would say Might and Magic 8. Now? It's pretty much a clunky mess but back when I first played it, I was glued for hours and hours, it's the most vibrant and non-linear installment in the fanchise, so if you want to play some Might and Magic, go for the 8th one, it's amazing.

The best RPG I've played? Gotta be either Baldurs Gate or Morrowind.

I find it interesting how this forum mostly prefers western or online MMO RPGs. On most other forums I've been to, JRPGs are much more popular.

Spoiler below!
Though most JRPGs nowadays are shit.

RE: "The most exciting RPG games you've ever played"-thread

I honestly think JRPGs are really really bad. Mainly because they most of the time (with a very VERY few exceptions) are streamlined, linear, one-button mashing fests that take you an average of 50 hours to complete, which is astoundingly long and dragged out for a game of such nature, I haven't played one whole JRPG (except FF2, mainly because of the character development) because they are tedious and the storytelling is more complex than the story itself really is, which is typical for Japanese narration as far as I'm concerned, and I'm not a huge fan of it.

I feel the game is patronizing me when it explains every single detail about things that I can perfectly comprehend on my own without a stupid narrator to tell me that the guy on the screen used his fist to physically hurt another guy by moving it in a fashion that involves speed and force (damn it's getting onto me) to inflict damage to the said guys torso.

Oh and not to mention the grindfest, don't get me started on that, JRPGs involve more grinding than any MMO combined twice, and that's not all, in JRPGs you MUST grind to progress, in MMOs, at least you can progress in a steady pace and only to get the little extra (like better stuff for your guy), you must grind, but not to actually progress in the game storyline, see where I'm going with this?

I could go on about how much I despise JRPGs but I think I've ranted enough for tonight lol xD

I haven't played M&M 8, but I'm not sure if it's the most non-linear in the franchise. M&M 6 pretty much dumps you in the middle of a random town and lets you go where ever you wish.
Unlike M&M 9, haven't played the whole game, which was very linear.

I meant how the storyline progresses non-linearily (if that's a word), I played M&M6 and it's very open ended as far as travel goes but M&M8 does pretty much the same, only with a reasonable introduction so you don't go and die the first thing you do. I thought M&M6 was pretty hard to grasp the first time I played it. Tongue

I see what you mean. Yeah, M&M 6 is a very difficult game to get into. Man, I need to start playing Might and Magic again. Was kinda put off by the horrible M&M9 :/ But I'll make sure to give number 8 a go! Smile
