Hello everyone, I have been in the wonderful world of role-playing games for a long time, but like everyone else, I had a crisis and I can't find myself an interesting novelty, all the old games are so packed to holes that I get bored if I just enter the main menu can you help me?

If novelty is what you're looking for, two immediately spring to mind: "Tyranny", where you are working for a tyrannical overlord and enforcing his rule as you see fit, so a twist on the traditional good-guy Chosen One trope, and on the more esoteric, nuanced front, there's "Disco Elysium", which I can't personally vouch for because I keep bouncing off the weirdness of it for some reason, but many people swear by it, and it is definitely unique, so there's that.

I'd like to know what you have played and what you personally like about RPGs to give suggestions. Steams last sale had an RPG similar to Dragon Age on sale called Greedfall. It has a setting similar to that of New World (1600s-1700s) and has you hacking your way across the landscape with a team of NPC's. Its pretty good for a AA title, that might tickle your RPG fancy

I probably sound like a broken record saying the same games over and over, but seeing the OP might not have heard me say it..

Dungeons of Naheulbeuk: the amulet of Chaos. The game is a turnbased masterpiece. If you like Campy, you will love this. It's a game that doesn't take it self to seriously, but it also does not mock RPG's, it's just very light hearted. The characters are great and story is darn good with more than a few solid laughs.


Loren Of the Amazon. It's part RPG part VN, it has a great story and pretty decent yet fairly simple RPG mechanics. The combat is turnbased, but done through just portraits and use of spells/powers. It's not a 3d game but don't let that fool you into thinking it's not a very solid game. The story is pretty good and lots of NPC's and ways to play. So much so you can replay the game many times. Even still it's a good 30+ hour ride.

Well it depends what kind of RPG ya want.

There's Fallout 3, 4 and New Vegas and the Elder Scrolls games for an FPS rpg feel.
For old school console rpg feel there's Grandia or the Final Fantasy series.
If you like old Baldurs Gate and Fallout 1 and 2, then Tyranny and Pillars of Eternity are great.
Want a Diablo fix there's Titan Quest and the Torchlight series.
Need a space opera/scifi/third person rpg then Mass Effect is a good series.
If you want other old school feeling rpg games. Avadon and Avernum series are great even Battle for Wesnoth. Wesnoth has a great old feel to it. It touched my Dark Wizard itch back in the day.

Hope that helps somewhat.

Really hard to say as that is somewhat subjective. I have over 1600 hrs. in Fallout 4. How/ you may ask. I get caught up in the settlements. Building and in some cases deciding I had a better idea and the tearing down and rebuilding. There are a lot of good ones out there. Done multiple play throughs on all three Witcher games. I like most anything with a big world and story driven with a lot of side stuff to do as well. As someone else mentioned, the Fallout and Elder Scrolls Series of games are good. I ran across Elder Scrolls 2, Daggerfall sometime back. It must have been Optimized as it does play well on new equipment.
