3: Your main party of heroes must include at least three (preferably all) of the following:
A. A really annoying child that is probably going to end up as hentai fodder within three minutes of the game's release.
If you're considering FFT a RPG, then DEFINITELY FFT, but I always considered it a TBS, so in that case..
My vote goes to Icewind Dale. I've never played BG 1 or 2, so I figure if I liked Icewind Dale, I would like them, and from what I heard, they're a bit better than Icewind Dale.
what do make of the icewind dale games and diablo 1+2
Recently The Witcher proved that the genre is still alive and kicking. The Witcher is simply epic in its scope and detail.
but I don't like the action type of combat much but that seems to be the way all RPG's are going. I guess they do that to appeal more to the console crowd.
This is exactly how I feel. Games like Gothic II, Oblivion, Witcher have so much going for them but I HATE the combat. I wonder if we will ever see another game where you have a party and have to use strategy to win a fight like BG2. I wonder what the combat model is for Dragon Age?
