I'm stuck in a rut like this too. Waiting for the Q3 release schedule to kick off but nothing to play in the meantime. >.< I've replayed everything I own to extinction!

I've just finished The Witcher again, but I can't suggest that since it's on your list already. Maybe replay it but go through making the complete opposite decisions to what you have done already?

King's Bounty/Armored Princess is good if you like tactical/turn-based RPG's - good story but tons of text (hardly any voice acting to speak of), and it does get a little tedious with grinding. Disciples III is also a good game in that same category, but while that has voice acting, it's somewhat lacking in the story department.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic is awesome if you don't mind your games a little dated. Pretty buggy on the downside, but if you can get past the bugs it's an excellent game.

Go back to the golden age and play Fallout 1/2! (Hmm... I might take up my own suggestion on this one.)

I'll make this my last suggestion; Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is probably amongst the best games I've ever played. Some good mods are available too, and community patches which fix more than the official ones. It's supposed to be seriously buggy, but to be honest I never encountered a single bug - not even a CTD or texture out of place -shrugs-.

EDIT: Amost forgot - I saw Divinity 2 on your list, but didn't see Divine Divinity. If you've not played that, it's an awesome game.

if you liked divinity 2 ego draconas then try Divinity 2 Flames of Vengeance.
also "risen" is a good RPG game!
"GOTHIC" series.
"TORCHLIGHT"

guess I'm gonna have to take a poke at a couple more of these,
I've played Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines as well btw, Loved playing a malkavian.

As for the other ones, I'll look up what info I can on em and see if they might fit what I'm looking for.

Ok, with risen, how the hell could I of missed this one? Looks pretty epic to me. but that will have to be seen...

I totally forgot about Risen... I feel so empty inside. I hang myself in shame and leave to go flog myself now.

But before I do! I know it's not released yet, but keep an eye out for Two Worlds II on September 17th (I think that's the earliest of the Q3 RPG releases). Personally I liked the first, though I think the majority hated it. Either way the sequel is supposedly to be much improved in every way.

Have the witcher,

Sacred 2... looks good, but I can't believe that the devs were too lazy to render the sky to boot.

I honestly would rather chop off a very personal body part then play with those camera angles in ANY game.

I like seeing whats in front of me. and I mean at a distance. not when its already in your face and too late to do something about it.

I'm all about the camera controls. If I don't have full camera control... *shrugs* the game can **** off.

The screenshots they had were very misleading...

A 2001 titled called Arcanum of Steamworks and Magick Obscura might be your kind of game. Replay value surpasses anything Fallout 1+2 could offer due to every race being treated and talented differently.

You can do fine as a balanced human with no significant background, but you'll excel with being hated as a Magick using Elf or Half Elf, and very few like Half Ogres or Half Trolls, and Half Orcs are dumb as sin and fugly as hell.

Basically you have three "Miniature" races, Dwarves, Halflings, and Gnomes, then you have the Midling races, Elves, Humans, and Orcs (And the Half-Orcs and Half-Elves), then you have Ogres, Half-Ogres, and Half-Trolls as giants who can't use any form of guns.

Three armor sizes, Miniature which fits Dwarves, Halflings, and Gnomes, "Normal" armor that fits the Midlings, and Large armor that fits anything larger than a Midling.

Endless quests, Morality system, various choices (Working with Necromancer Jewelers whose customers die gruesome deaths by coincidence, or killing them dead at the behest of a Dwarven ally), and a Tech vs. Magick system.

Magick doesn't work well on highly Technological characters, and Magick Users can't utilize tech.

Spellcasters are relegated to the far back of the train due to potentially fatal interference with the steam engine, and certain shops will turn you away if you're too magickal or technological.

Excellent game in my opinion.

There's also Postal 2 (No real story, but if you get mad, a half hour with A Week in Paradise mod will see you laughing as the bodies hit the floor in chunks).

Finally, I feel I should recommend giving Fallout: New Vegas a shot in October. Despite Obsidian's track record, they can't screw up any worse than Bethesda did in terms of bugs, but they can make up for it with staying true to the established Fallout 1+2 canon and style =3
