So after recently replaying VTM Bloodlines with the latest fan patch, I realize that I as a gamer really miss these types of games.
Games that I’ve played that evoke that same feeling of awesome-sauce
Deus Ex (original, but of course)
Anyone have some hidden gems that are world explory-hero customizing that I may have missed? Old or new games are fine!
Thank you much in advance.
Ahh a good recommend I should of listed that up top because I have played that one many times.
Any opinions on Arcanum - of really long title of steampunk?
If you play Arcanum, there is a fan patch you will want to get. It is compatible with the GOG version, I Believe.
It’s a game with a lot of charms. And broken combat that tried to be two things and failed at both. And a character development system that seems interesting at first glance but is in reality sort of a mess.
Yeah just watched the trailer on GoG and I think I played it back in the day and put it down for some reason.
Morrowind is my personal favorite game in that world exploration hero customization genre. I’m drawing a blank on others at the moment.
Obligatory Ultima IV / V / VI (though character customization is very limited the world exploration is awesome) pimping from me, especially with the anniversary so close.
Morrowind would be my recommend(ation).
I hear good things about The Witcher, though I’ve yet to have a chance to play it. Picked it up at one of the many Steam/Impulse sales and just have a backlog to big at the moment to get there.
I really like Arcanum, but you have to be playing it for the story and the exploration. The combat and character development aspects aren’t good. Also, magic is easy-mode and going the tech route is hard mode, just FYI.
