Looking for games epic in scope
« on: December 15, 2013, 03:09:50 PM »
Title kind of says it all, but I'm looking for a game that's just epic in scope, a big sprawling adventure. I don't really care about the genre. I just feel like losing myself in a good game that's really well thought out lore-wise, or even has a lore worth reading.

Oblivion is the greatest example of what you are looking for ( least in my opinion ) the world is massive and open, and the lore is plentiful and extremely interesting. Skyrim and morrowind  to mind, but I think oblivion is best.

Okay, my bad. I've played all the Elder Scrolls games. Those don't count. :)

Then I guess.... Dragon age? That's a game you can lose yourself in... Um.... Grand theft auto 5? XD

Played all of them.

Now you see my dilemma...

It's hard to find many games like that. :\

That pretty much exhausts my suggestions. I'm more of a strategy gamer myself :)

Have you considered the SWTOR MMO. It's FtP now, if you don't mind the restrictions, and some of the class storylines are pretty decent. Might not be quite as in depth as you want, but could give you a temp fix :)

Any fire emblem? They are usually huge games with lots of lore.

There are, but they're not really storyline ones :)

Well. They might not have a good story, but their are ones that craft a world of scope and substance. :)

Not sure if they qualify, but Dragon Age Origins, Borderlands 2, and The Witcher 2.

Played it, don't like the series, and played it respectively.
