PC Games Every Roleplayer MUST own.

<< < (20/21) > >>

Even though they're not really RPGs, I think Freedom Force (and its excellent sequel, Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich) have enough good characterization in them that they would appeal to most roleplayers, if those players have an interest in Silver and Bronze Age comic book superheroes.  To this day I have a deep and abiding love for those characters, to the point where my affection for old childhood heroes like Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four is no greater than it became for the Freedom Force.  Years after it came out, a real comic book miniseries featuring the characters was published, and I bought every one of them.

Deus ex, original. You can get patches, grsaphic updates, etc,  hut the original deus ex despite being 22 years old is still a game for people with brains, not just reflexes.

Spent most of the 1980's playing the Ultima Series... IV being the first one i played, followed by III,II,I,V,VI,VII in that order... the less said about VIII and IX the better i suppose (IV and VII are my favorites of the series), they still run in DOSbox and i still play them from time to time.  And i'd even
still recommend them!!

You forget "Martian Dreams" (steampunk) and "The Savage Empire" (the lost valley with dinosaurs) based on Ultima VI engine. I still have them in the original boxes. Savage Empire inspired a whole GURPS campaign.

If you like rogue-likes and sci-fi, Approaching Infinity is a good one.  The developer is very active and is always producing new content.  Since it is low tech and turn based, it will even run on my potato of a laptop that I use when I'm babysitting or taking the lovely wife to the casino.

The best PC RPG ever has to be Planescape: Torment.

Honorable Mentions:
Baldur's Gate I/II
Fallout I/II
Ultima VII
Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines
