CRPG Bucket List
(This post was originally written on 24th of April 2019)
Last year I read through all of the “CRPG Book”, a community effort to catalogue most CRPGs of note, collecting reviews, developer anecdotes and how-to-play-it-today-best tips lovingly.
It was highly inspiring to me. Mostly to finally get around to a lot of games that I've heard are masterpieces but I held out on for one reason or another.
After I read the PDF front to back, I flipped through it again and noted down very title that had caught my interest:
Dungeon Lords (Don Stylo’s Request) Star Control 2 Quest for Glory (or watch Paw’s Lets play again I guess) Amberstar / Ambermoon Final Fantasy VI Albion Avernum (whatever the most modern remake is called) Fallout 1 & 2 (with a guide?) Final Fantasy VII Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 Jagged Alliance 2 Planescape Torment System Shock 2 Deus Ex Grandia II Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura Morrowind Neverwinter Nights Mods Star Wars Knights of the old Republic 1 & 2 Vampire The Masquerade – Bloodlines The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky & The ohte one Neverwinter Nights 2 Expansions and maybe mods? STALKER Call of Pripyat Drakensang Am Fluss der Zeit Dragon Age Origins Alpha Protocol Diablo I Deus Ex: Human Revolution Dragon's Dogma Venetica Torchlight Check out: Knights of the Chalice Borderlands Cthulhu saves the World Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon EYE Divine Cybermancy Way of the Samurai 4 Magical Diary Deus Ex Mankind Divided Of Orcs and Men Shadowrun: Dragonfall: Director’s Cut Heroine’s Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead Underrail
And while I was at it, I rememberd three games not in the book I also want to get around to:
Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door Mother 3 Suikoden II
And, for completeness, since then I have actually gave a serious shot to Diablo I and Deus Ex: Human Revoltion and Mankind Divided. I might write something about those later.
