Default I need RPG tips.

Hi everybody, Itīs been long since i played a good RPG game, Does anyone know a good RPG game? something in the line of Diablo or Fallout?

What i am longing for is a game that is easy to play but still have more aspects then a simpel hack and slash, less bugs then Fallout 2(my cartrunk always sitts in trees and never on my car.) and quite a new game something around the year 2000...

or do anyone know a more modern version of Shadow over riva? that whas a good game.

PEACE

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura.
Apart from the stampunk setting, the game is very fallout-like. No surprise, given many of the people involved in the first Fallout were involved with producing Arcanum.

Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines
Now, that's a hybrid between an RPG and a TPP action-adventure, but it works quite well. Bonus points for the setting and a peculiar sense of humour (which is not unlike certain jokes in the Fallout series) at many points during the game.

If you liked Diablo, you would probably also like:

Darkstone (1999)

and

Sacred (2004)

thx guys, I knew I could turn to you guys. For me personaly i have a problem with sacred and Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines. I only have a Laptop to play them on, thusly i am locking for games that donīt have to high requierments.

I have tried bouth Sacred and Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines. good games, Sacred i played for a few month and got a good lvl dwarf.
And Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines I had that a little while on my Comp and since it lagged a lot on that I donīt think itīs a choice for me now... Though itīs a very intresting game.

PEACE

Lagged on mine a lot too. Which didn't prevent me from finishing it twice
There are some tweaks that improve its performance, BTW.

Great game but i had problems with it since i couldnīt make it past the scen when i whas led by the people in the water to their town, I whas not able to get past it with Dosbox or in simple windows XP...(I played it in bouth, it whas so slow in Dosbox since i only had a 450 mhz comp, and the movies didnīt work without Dosbox.) does anyone know a game simmilar to the "realms of arcadia" series? preferably more modern...

It's a bit of a mixture of genres, but I'm momentarily captivated by Overlord, which is fun. It was definitely worth the 10 euros, but that was a temporary Steam offer I'm afraid. Sacred is a good game too, actually played that one before I tried Diablo 2.

And then there is Baldurs Gate and its sequels (which I need to continue playing one of these days), and Jade Empire is pretty good as well

Planscape: Torment is great, too (but not very Diablo like). Another game that you can probably get for a few bucks is Dungeon Siege. The game itself is crap (well, you might like it if you liked Diablo, it is very combat heavy), but there is an incredible good Ultima V port for the engine. Easily worth the 5€ I spend for the game

The best RPG I EVER(!) played was Wizardry 6: Bane of the Cosmic Forge. There's no game that even remotely immersed me as deeply and completely in story and atmosphere as Bane. If u finish the game using only one mook char u will ascend to nirvana on the spot.
anyway: best. rpg. ever.

Hm, I personally found VtM: Bloodlines a more-less crappy game. My recommendation is Morrowind, weird that noone else mentioned it yet, maybe it is first-person, but it's deep enough for the likes of Diablo and etc.
