    So Rosh, I'm assuming you didn't like the last iterations of the Wizardry, Might and Magic and Ultima series... what recent games have you liked? :)

    Actually Geneforge, Avernum and Gothic all count as recent in my book.

    Man, reading that list, brings back the memories. You know, I didn't think anyone other then me really played Space Rogue, its good to see most of my favorites up there. It does make me sad though. Is it so hard to follow the greatness of those games? Were they so revolutionary that it is impossible to continue? Is that why there simply arn't very many so called RPGs worth playing these days?

    Or are there simply so few people lovingly dedicated to creating true CRPGs now?

    Or has it become largely a game of "follow the money." As the bills for creating a mainstream game become larger and larger, the people who pay those bills are types who are further and further from gaming culture. Suits who want a return in their investment, safe money without the gambles that come from new ideas.

    I'm a bit surprised I don't see Daggerfall on that list. It's likely the most expansive and open-ended CRPG of all times, if overly repetitive.

    Speaking in divine languages is prohibited on this forum. In other words, we may not use the holy Croatian, only plain English.

    And holy crap, is that you, Igor? Because if it is, I'll strangle you when you return to Zagreb. Then I'll mutilate your still warm corpse and bathe in your blood with a pink loofa.

    The only fun I ever had on NWN, was creating ripoffs from FF7 with ridiculus swords.
    Happy times. Then I actually tried playing it. And there was much sadness.
