    Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines - good call :)

    Dragon Age was very enjoyable too, I thought... pretty much anything Bioware ;-)

    Oh and Torchlight is well worth a look if you like Diablo style games....

    Except for the petulant patch war that's still going on in the background.

    Would've been really nice if Troika were allowed to finish VTM:B though. That would've been worth every penny paid for it.

    Deus Ex rocked. I loved the first on on the PS2. #2 not as much. Hoping the 3rd one is done well.

    Other than that I loved Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2. Mass Effect 2 is the bestest American RPG I have played so far. I normally hate American RGP's, but I loved ME2 :D.

    Oblivion & Morrowind - heavily modded OFC.

    I own The Witcher:EE, Borderlands GOTY, they aren't bad.

    Dragon Age: Origins with all DLC is very good.

    Champions of Norrath and Champions: Return to Arms are the best ARPGs of all time.

    There's a distinction between an ARPG and an RPG that's based around whether the game is streamlined to get you into the action or not. ARPGs are typically less about character building and more about getting in and actually playing the game, so Oblivion an Morrowind aren't really ARPGs.

    Oblivion is, but Morrowind isn't certainly.

    Oblivion is definitely an action RPG... it's almost exactly like Fallout 3 in terms of game design

    i was never real big on oblivion (due to the fact i sucked at it) but FO3 literally took over my life in late 2008 lol

    Not so sure about the 'action' aspect of things but...

    Final Fantasy XII
    Final Fantasy VIII
    Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, 3 and 4 (These do have action!)

    Mass Effect 2, simply flawles game. Dragon Age:O was fun and all but I am more of a sci-fi guy :p

    Everyone says it is the worst MMO ever, especially since it it not free. Try FFXI.

    It's rubbish compared to the first game. Repetitive, boring and too dumbed-down to be called an RPG.

    Gothic series

    it's still free, it's free until they "Fix it" as deemed by the community, pretty cool eh?
    well, regardless, i bought FFXIV day 1 and disliked it. played FFXI for about 5+ years.

    Either way best Action RPGs

    Kingdom Hearts
    Star Ocean series
    Rogue Galaxy
    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles (gamecube) if you managed to have 4 friends, with 4 game boy advances, and 4 of those weird *** link cables this game was fun as hell - if not, it was the worst **** ever.

    Mass Effect series hands down. Great story and plenty of action.

    I will note that ME1 is more story driven then ME2. ME2 is more shooting and less story driven.

    Lost Odyssey I don't know why really, but that game always brings back memories I loved playing it so much... took me forever to beat.. That's what I love in video games though.

    For the P.C. I would have to think that the game Neverwinter Nights was the best one I've played.
