I've never played FO1 but I did finish FO2. FO2 was pretty challenging because in the beginning you are really resource starved, and tend to get slaughtered if you ranged into some tough areas since encounters were not adjusted to your level. The fact that some of your party had gatling guns with a wide spread coupled with an isometric view also results in many inter-party casualties. The world was very colorful, and there's all sorts of interesting situations like a HtH fighting tournament, your very own shotgun wedding, starring in a movie and 5 different types of prophylactics.I never played Fallout 1 and 2 either. How is the gameplay?? I bought Fallout 3 because it was made by Bethseda and had a similar open-ended style as Oblivion. I havne't played too many PC RPG's but my favorite one is probably Planescape Torment.
Yes, Planescape Torment was just a classic. My only beef with it is that for a game based on a DnD campaign setting it didn't have a single sword in it. Did the Lady place a ban on long bladed weapons?
I really enjoy Borderlands. Originally I was initially dismayed by the limited inventory space, and concerned about picking a viable set of skills but it turns out that you can increase your inventory space, and redistribute your skills!How is Borderlands?? I heard of it but never got a chance to play it. Roleplaying Shooter?? Have you heard of Deus Ex? Is it similar to that?
I would say it's much more action oriented than Deus Ex. Games like DE 1/2 and System Shock 1/2 tended to be more realistic and immerse while Borderlands is probably more action-oriented akin to a semi-persistent version of Team Fortress or Starsiege Tribes with quests and skill trees rolled in. It's aiming for the niche between FPS and online RPGs.
