Any suggestions appreciated.

Two Worlds is quite fun, as is Kingdoms of Amalur too

First computer Vic 20, Best surprise ending Dungeon Siege 2, A fun game was Fable Lost Chapter. Puzzle action Myst.. One of the first Captain Keen series (side winder). Too many of the games I tried or played, the combat seemed clumsy.
Thanks again
I too started off on a Vic20!

I hope you can refund K.O.A
I got it too even though outdated graphics and wacky camera didn't bothered me because it was recommended to me too. but it had this very annoying split second freezing when your attacks connect with enemies. people said it was intentional to chain combos easily I don't know about you but it was dealbreaker for me. also it had very shallow loot compared to games like GD. didn't bothered with the story anymore when i saw the camera , controls and loot.

I am also surprised nobody mentioned the adventures of Van Helsing series , Victor Vran , Vikings - wolves of midgard...

while victor vran and vikings are very bland compared to GD, van helsing has a cool skill system and ton of content. and all of the three games are well polished technically (they run well and very few if no bugs). I would easily recommend these three over kingdoms of amalur. furthermore if it is to be a non isometric arpg, i would rather just play skyrim once more than KOA

Isn't Kingdoms of Amalur more like a singleplayer MMO?

Vikings is very bland, indeed.

Van Helsing makes some fun! Prefer part 1 (2nd and 3rd aren't that great, imo).

Victor Vran isn't my taste of setting. What's the big deal with this heavy metal stuff?

If you're going for the worst games in this genre. Then also suggest Loki & Warhammer: Martyr

Try Din's Legacy, if you are new to Soldak you will enjoy it, if you already know soldak's stuff you will enjoy it anyway. It's basically din's curse on steroid, with even more bright ideas. God bless Steve.

Have you ever played Dragon's Dogma? It's either hit or miss for anyone, but if it clicks with you, it will definitely become one of your favorite games ever.
Though if it's not for you, you are going to find it extremely bland and boring.

I know you are going to think I am genre jumping here, but Bordelands 1.


For me, after TQ/GD, the BL series is the only modernish game that give pleasure for levling and finding loot. Great story too imo.
