The games I am looking for would be similar to the Elder Scrolls series , The Divinity series and the Dungeon Siege series.
They are single player games although they can have computer generated team members.
They are not turn based games
The games tend to have a main quest with a number of side quests.
They tend to be hack and slash, fetch and retrieve and problem or puzzle solving.
The players tend to build up abilities and weapons as the progress through the game.
I am not looking for games that require complicated sequential actions to deliver spells etc.
I would prefer a game that had a god mode or invincible mode ,console or cheat command.
I would also suggest the Drakensang series, Gothic series, Neverwinter nights, and perhaps even the Two Worlds series (although I have not played those both through... they simply fit the genre).
I would also add the Dragon Age series.

The two Worlds series are a real good choice and not expensive these days,and you should enjoy the game, good long playing time..
This. Also have you tried the Gothic series? They're buggy but still pretty enjoyable for RPG gamers.
You can also try your hands on Risen. The first one is much better than the second one.
With the dodge/better blocking patched in, I actually favor Risen 2 over the first game at this point - though neither is quite as good as their progenitor Gothic 3 with the fan made patch/mod content.
Two of my own suggestions would be:
Din's Curse, which is basically an infinite number of smaller, randomly generated dungeons, complete with towns that have NPCs, monsters that level, and even monster invasions! (plus some great multiclassing) It doesn't have a "main" quest aside from stopping each town from getting blown to hell by the boss monsters before you finish the quests, but it's great fun, especially if you would rather dictate how much time each world with take when you generate it than be stuck with less/more time required to finish than you'd like: Link
Torchlight, basically the same as above, but with a linear storyline and more restrictive "random" generation (items, quest rewards, monsters/bosses, area layouts, etc) but some other neat gimmicks and an actual overarching plot: Link
Funny how there is always just 2 :P
Or is there? Maybe something comes in the future? Who knows :P
But if you get a bit fed up with RPGs and want some sort of story rts/rpg mixed... try Homeworld 1 and 2... great games
