Good Fantasygames

If this is a stupid topic, it's okay if you remove this, but I thought that we could talk about other good fantasygames here. But not Drakan.

I don't know any fantasygames after Drakan and Dreamfall (both of them, "Longest Journey" and "Dreamfall: The Longest Journey") and Harry Potters (of course [:D]). Do you know any?

Well, I do know some onlinegames, but I don't really fancy them.

My favourite games after Drakan are the Dreamfalls, I like the older one and the latest one. Maybe I liked the older one a bit better, because the latest was so... sad? All the characters a liked died and it was just a fight for nothing. So many mysters left without answers...

What games do you like? [:)]

Most Fantasies are RPGs and Action/Adventure.
Lots of 'em out there, if you broaden the scope of what you're looking for in Fantasy.
Lord of the Rings games, Baldur's gate and Champions of Norrath-type games, Demon Stone, Dragon Quest 8 and the various Final Fantasies...
What else....
Fantasy is a perfect setting for games!

Dungeons and Dragons: Demonstone wasn't bad but it got repetitive after a while. You might want to rent it first as some parts are fustrating having to do them over and over again because you mess up once.

I love Enclave, Swedish game by Starbreeze Studio. Published for XBOX, Playstation2 and (uff..) PC has one of the greatest mood I've ever seen. Beautiful textures, shaders and levels (Ark Moor Citadel is my favorite level in any game ever released) and very nice physic... well, I cough myself on breaking the glass tank with butterflies just to watch their tiny shapes as they fly all around :-)
And there is Dragon too, powerful guardian. Killable in dark campaign, unfortunately :-( ... reen10.jpg ... reen08.jpg ... reen21.jpg

I played Enclave on the Xbox.
I need to get a PC for gaming... I'd love to try that and Morrowind/Oblivion on PC with mods.
Nobody ever seems to issue good games for Macs. I feel lucky to be able to play WoW and Diablo.
Blizzard's good like that...

Great screen caps.

I've been searching for a good fantasy game for sometime now, but so far, have been unsuccessful.

Lineage II is a grindfest. Aion is a boring grindfest, also, it's the game for which my favorite recent game (Tabula Rasa) was killed. Guild Wars was fun in the early-late stages, but as soon as you reach endgame, it becomes so hard, it's not fun anymore. Cities of Heroes is boring and repetive. Also, plaync are a bad company for customer service and listening to opinions, so you shouldn't deal with them now that I've told you what they're like.

All the other games I researched are made for open pvp (players can kill you anywhere anytime), which I'm not a fan of, I prefer to play the game without worrying about some moron killing me.

So, as yet, my search for a decent game has failed.

Still waiting for mmo Drakan.........

You mean Traveler Quest? How shameful it was canceled :-(

I may create full scale dragon multi player game some day, but it rather won't be MMO. I hate this genre, mostly because I've already worked on such game...

But multi player games with persistent world are okay - For no more than, let's say, 32 players at once.

And because I really love P&P RPGs, if I ever made dragon game it main server will have to be role-play-intense [;)]

Sadly, the current trend with mmos seems to be towards pvp and killing other players.

Roleplay is essentially dead in mmos, which I find to be be a great shame.

Even Guild Wars, which mentions Roleplay in both the game documentation and game software, has nothing relating to this whatsoever. The "roleplay reward system", which is supposedly a feature of this game is nowhere to be found.

If I might venture an opinion based on long observation of mmo players in general, pvp kills any form of decent social interaction. From personal experience, I know if you tell hardcore flamer pvpers that you're not interested, they'll then focus on you as a griefer target. Which is why I'm so opposed to pvp now.

I'm there to have fun and meet people (virtually speaking), not get in petty fights over "pwning other players" (or not wanting to, as my case is).

buckmania - I also love such role-plays games. It's difficult to find MMO pure role-playing (difficult! it's impossible, at least for now...) - so for now only good solution is to play games such Neverwinter Nights on some role-play server. I know of such servers in Poland and I think it will be more of them in the foreign countries.

Neverwinter Nights looks a bit too much like Guild Wars. And I never really enjoyed that game.

My taste has always been for Tomb Raider or Drakan style, a 3D character with complete environment interaction (swimming, jumping etc).

Check out Tabula Rasa videos (if you can find any) to see the kind of thing I preferred.

I am stupid that I didn't mention earlier... there is Witcher!

I don't know if English translation is good (and someone on the official forum suggested that is not), but original book written by Andrzej Sapkowski are the best polish fantasy ever created... and there are voices suggesting that they are even better than Tolkien's Lord of the Rings (mostly because of it's depth - Witcher covers racism problem, religion fanaticism, brutality of real life, and wide spectrum of other social topics, when Tolkien only created coherent vision of past, a bit overperfect). Original Ace (initials of Witcher author name - A.S. - is Polish word for ace) books are intended for mature audience (as they contain a lot of very brutal violence, erotic scenes, etc.), but I heared that English translation was a bit censured.

I was impressed by the witcher demo but it ran very jerky on my aging 4 year old PC. I have upgraded the RAM to 3GB which should help. I will re-try the demo and if it works the game will definitley be on my games to buy list.

In game they do not appear, but in book there were few interesting Dragons. Look at english Witcher wikia: ... wo%C5%9Bci
