I'm always blown away by people talking about what a great rpg Dragon Age was. It was a really weak story with all the best elements being blatantly stolen from other properties. The characters were flat. The gameplay was kind of fun but nothing special.

You want an rpg that stands up regardless of graphics? Go get Planescape Torment. That is the best story and most well developed characters of any rpg. Period. Thought provoking and impossible to figure the ending before you get there.

It's not that expensive.

You can build a gaming PC that can handle most if not all games at max settings for 400-500 dollars, which is about the price of a new console (PS3 was 600 dollars at launch by comparison).

You just have to buy the parts separate from Newegg and put it together yourself (or get someone to do it if you don't know how).

Planescape Torment is good, definitely not my favorite RPG out there but solid. If I were to pick an RPG of that "era" I'd pick Baldur's Gate 2 over it by a mile.

Torment is world's better than BG2 and still the best story and dialogue ever put to an rpg. Console or PC.

I found it to be quite a bit worse than BG2 and many other RPG's including DA:O. Good you like it, though.

Weren't they trying to remake Planescape at some point? I wonder how that is going or if they stopped the remake, or maybe I'm confusing it with a different game remake. I'd love to see HD remakes of all the classic RPG games if they are done properly. Like, keep the same gameplay/story/quests, but upgrade the graphics to HD so that it looks more crisp and that it supports new monitors/resolutions without issue, and fix some bugs that are in them and make the menus more clear/updated.

Not near max settings for that price. A decent gpu and cpu will be 400 alone that can run games maxed, let alone motherboard, case, monitor, harddrive, power supply, mouse, keyboard. The build will usually end up closer to 800+.

Actually you can, in fact a friend of mine just set up a gaming rig for about $550 that maxes out The Witcher 2, Skyrim, Batman Arkham city, Crysis 2, Sleeping Dogs and others.

Here's quick YouTube search on "budget gaming pcs", it includes gpu/cpu/case/mobo/power supply/ram/hd for 423 dollars and in the video it maxes Sleeping dogs (with the high resolution texture pack), Dirt 3, Batman: Arkham City at full HD at 1920 x 1080 and in DX11 at fully playable FPS, there are many of them on there that show 400-500 dollar PC's maxing out most games. Mouse/keyboard is like 25 dollars? A monitor will be 100 bucks or so, but most people already have decent monitors.

It's damn near universally considered a perfect rpg. BG2 is good but storywise isn't even close. I play rpgs. That is my preferred game type and I have never found it's equal in games.

I'll ignore the fact that Dragon Age was even mentioned as being better.

I play RPG's too and Planescape is easily under BG2, DA:O and others in my opinion.

As for universally considered a perfect RPG, if you type in "BG2 is the greatest rpg ever" you will find articles from Gameinformer and others stating it is. You'll also find the same results when you google "FF7 greatest RPG ever", or "FF6 greatest rpg ever", or "Planescape greatest RPG ever", or any other classic/currently highly rated RPG. Everyone thinks their favorite RPG is the best RPG ever, and nobody is right or wrong.

It's all personal preference and you can ignore whatever you want.

Also, GameStop not sending me the download code for the 20 dollar PSN card I purchased to get Okami, I purchased it like an hour ago. Normally it takes a few minutes or a bit but not this long. Hopefully I get the code soon so I can star the download so that I can play tomorrow.

I'm a casual gamer. I play maybe 8 new games a year at most. You remind me of myself when I was like 21 and I watched like 30 movies a week and I couldn't enjoy anything new because 'Fellini already did it.'
