Hey folks,

I'm looking for a new game to play, but it doesn't have to technically be new. I've been looking for an RPG which has a sort of resource dump/upgradable home or something similar.

I don't know if any of you played Neverwinter Nights 2. If you have, I'm talking about something similar to the Keep you get. You need to upgrade it and get it ready for the impending siege. Which effects the outcome of the game.

or

Something that has really awesome character progression or a decent flexible character skill tree and a good crafting system. Pretty much I'm looking for something that will take up time, and pays off eventually.

I've been looking at some top blah lists and I've played a lot of the top ones, and the others are more story orientated and lack time sinks or are in beta/early access and don't yet include everything they are advertising.

I say you should try the Baldurs gate series.

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines is great, but a bit dated.

I can think of a handful, but it might be helpful to know what you have already played aside from just the Neverwinter sequel.

Mind you not all of these have a keep, but in my personal opinion are definitely worthwhile RPGs.

Fallout series
The Witcher series
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
Elder Scrolls series
Divinity series
Fable series
Mass Effect series
Gothic series (though admittedly, I own Arcania, but have never had an opportunity to crack it open... which I have heard is probably for the better).
Knights of The Old Republic series
Bio Shock series
Borderlands series
Drakensang series
Dragon Age series
Jade Empire
Two Worlds series

And, although this is another I have never played, I have heard decent reviews about the Sacred series.

I've recently played the
Two Worlds series
Dragon Age series
Borderlands series
The Witcher series
Elderscrolls Morrowind through Skyrim
Fallout 1, 3 and New Vegas
Bioshock Series
Mass Effect Series
Neverwinter Nights Series
Saints Row Series
Tomb Raider
Dungeon Siege 2 and 3
Divinity 2
Gothic 4 (Which I didn't mind too much)
STALKER

I've never been a big fan of Starwars games. The last game I played was Starwars Galaxies before they screwed with the combat and Battlefront 2.

I will take a look at Jade Empire and Drakensang though.

ARCANIA IS NOT GOTHIC!

lol

Back to OP :P

Dragon Age Inquisition "so far" may have a castle building and upgrading system for battles online.

Not sure if Forsaken Fortress ever get off the ground, it was on kickstarter last year and featured RPG elements with base building.

Obviously XCOM games are RPG elements and base building :P

Cortex Command

Conquest of Elysium an old style Might and Magic type.

Majesty games.

I know that Arcania is technically not Gothic, but it is widely accepted as Gothic 4. Steam even sells it as part of their Gothic bundle (mind you it is the Arcania+Gothic bundle).

Regardless, I would agree that XCOM has significant RPG elements, and it is a great series.

I was not impressed with the Majesty games, but they are primarily RTS any way.

@OP

If you haven't yet, check out this site... they focus primarily on RPGs and I am certain you can find some great suggestions that we are all leaving out: Link

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've picked up Jade Empire, Drakensang, and "backed" Forsaken Fortress. I've already played through Vampires Masquerade Redemption and Bloodlines, and XCOM Enemy Unknown, but I just noticed a new Expansion came out for it so I got that too.

As far as Dragon Age, I'm going to be getting it regardless of a building element because I live the series and its lore.

Another game I found, not out yet mind you, was Sui Generis. It was funded on Kickstarter and features what could be some very interesting elements. It also 'kind of' reminds me of Neverwinter Nights 2 in terms of design and graphics.

More info here on their kickstarter:Link

and their webpage here: Link

Any more suggestions if you have any are welcomed.
