well those games are very few and very far between. last one like that was Arx Fatalis, as far as i can gather.

thats why i said FIRST-PERSON VIEW and not FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER, cuz i was talking about the view point mode that you can have in Gothic 3 and that is present in the Might and Magic series or Arx Fatalis, which are not FPS games, but more like FPRPGS.

No one cares if Gothic 3 is FP if it sucks.

technically Ultima Underworld 2 is not under earth's surface - the castle get's covered by a dome... there are many worlds out there (some are even in the sky if i remember - could they be Plains of Oblivion?!?!)

There are no worlds with open sky, unless you mean the ethereal void, but that's pretty much the only one and there's no sky either. Generally, eventhough storywise it's not underground, it's still all the time "inside" so it can be also considered a Dungeon Crawl game.
Plains of Despair are strictly underground, as people there tell about their world.

sheesh, i only used it as an example, first-person view RPGing isnt exactly usual stuff nowadays, if you dont count Dark Messiah into the genre, which i dont. :amused:

but personally i thought Gothic 3 was OK, didnt have problems with bugs or anything else, sure, G1-2 was better but G3 was playable for me.

alrighty then, back on topic.

Anvil of Dawn is an FPV RPG, and is mainly based inside dungeons/castles.

Aha? Are you kidding me? Most RPGs today are crappy action-RPG type fairs with a few of them third person, but there's no difference in that really.

Mass Effect, Oblivion, Two Worlds. All that tripe, there's even more being released like that new hype-queer Alpha Protocol or whatever that overrated piece of trash company Bioware is creating.

Anyways, if you're not going to count Dark Messiah, then you might just as well throw the games I mentioned in there, since they're action games.
