Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
You asked for RPG recommendations with an easier learning curve. Many of the recommendations above are the opposite of that. Here are my recommendations from mid-90s to present: -Lands of Lore. Actually, this is the perfect definition of classic RPG with easy learning curve. Super fun, immersive, …

30-50 hours per game? Wow, maybe I need to be re-evaluate the time needed to play these types of games. I'll look into the Eschalon series, thanks! Typical RPGs are 40-80 hrs long. The Witcher series are probably on the high end (60-80 hrs). Check gamefaqs.com and howlongtobeat.com for good …

Can anyone recommend another RPG with an easier learning curve? Try the Eschalon series. I've beaten Book 1 and 2 so far and they are pretty easy to get into and relatively short. I believe Book 1 took me about 30 hours and Book 2 took 50 hours. I really enjoyed them. Another one to consider is …

Re: Recommend me some gold old DOS games?

Everyone's going to have their favorites, and some people won't like or recommend games that are considered classics. A little more detail in your question would be appreciated. :) I'm an RPG nut, so most of my recommendations would be in that genre. Here's three non-RPG DOS games I'd recommend: - …

Re: List the PC games that you have beaten

Wizardry 7: Crusaders of the Dark Savant. Took me 201 hours over the course of 131 days (4.4 months!). My favorite part of this game (and the series) is party development. There's just so many ways you could go! You can use vanilla classes and class-switch as many times as you want, or you can keep …

Hey clueless, any chance we could get together for a friendly game of whatever? I thought it was pretty neat that first time. Yeah, probably after I finish Wizardry 7. My gaming is pretty limited, usually early mornings (5am to 8am) on the weekends. And when I'm in the middle of a game, I'm pretty …

Getting back to the Gorrors, apparently the final two are nearly impossible to defeat unless you have tons of invisibility potions or everyone has the Ninjutsu skill, or you grind your characters to about level 50. I haven't checked any of those boxes, but I'll still give them a try to see if I …

Nice work @Clueless - does all the effort you’ve put in maxing out your party pay off when you import them into the next game in the series? Or do they all get amnesia and lose most of their skills? There's some pretty elaborate transfer rules that some people figured out: http://www.zimlab.com/ …

188 hours into Wizardry 7 and I've just beaten the 4th of 6 Gorrors. I'm very close to the end (my guess of 200 hrs awhile back seems to be spot-on). The Gorrors are 6 monsters guarding 6 chests just prior to the events leading to the endgame battles. These are completely optional battles, but the …

Wolfenstein 3D (modded in) Any link for this version? Can't find on the first 5 pages of google results, so I assume it's buried somewhere. The one I use is from here: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=46350 There's another one here that I have not tested: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic …
