can you recommend me some rpg's for pc ?
because I got already tired about fighting, racing, sports and other types of games for pc's.
I guess the only type of games that I really like are rpg's like Final Fantasy.

Could you recommend me some rpg's for pc ?¢®

There aren't very many good PC RPGs like Final Fantasy. Anachronox might be a good one to look into, and you may or may not like Septerra Core. I like Planescape: Torment a lot, but it's not like Final Fantasy.

Anachronox is a good bet... although it has some issues with XP/2K. The best way to describe it is Bladerunner meets Chrono trigger.

Eighteen! :eek: Have I missed a few?

Well as long as don't mind downloading tons of patches its ok. I have it (with sad patches and it doesn't have any issues with XP).

As for Annachronox. I managed to play it through to almost the end before I hit a bug on win 2k. Either I'm completely thick or you can't kill the end boss.

I've heard Anachronox is a great game. Of course, there's the classic Baldur's Gate, which should be pretty darn cheap by now that Baldur's Gate II is out. Also look into Arcanum, which has hours and hours of play value and got a 90% or somethin from PCGamer. The Fallout series is also pretty good.
So there are good PC RPGs out there: to recap, Arcanum, Baldur's Gate, Anachronox, Fallout. Check 'em out.

check out silver and septerra core...
although both are a new breed of old school rpg's in which the main difference is a lot of mouse involvement

I have the PC versions of FF7 & 8, and I liked them a little better than the PS versions. Both have pros and cons, so I suggest you try them for a different experience. The PC versionds have a little better 3D IMO, but the music isn't quite the same. And FF8 has the ChocoboWorld minigame, unavailable in PS version :p.

Diablo isn't really an RPG... very little dialogue/story to speak of. It's the epitome of hack-and-slash, so if that's what you're looking for, Diablo is your best bet. But if you're looking for something like FF, you won't like Diablo.

What GeForce card do you have? Not sure if it works with the first GeForce (GF256) but if you have a GF2/GF3, I guess FSAA should work fine. Also, be sure to download the GeForce patch for FF8. Without it, strange sh1t appear when you play w/o the patch.
