you must give Fallout and Fallout 2 a shot .. I personally don't like PC games (Besides the NBA Live PC versions from EASports) and I actually enjoyed these games ... couple years old but still plays great.

anyone here knows Knights of Xentar?
thats a really cool japanese RPG for the PC, i mainly liked it because of the... uh.. graphics (you'd know what i mean, hehe) :D and the unusual plot ^______^ and also every single line of text is voiced...
i have no idea though if it is still available anywhere plus its pretty old...

Wizardry 8- Good, tons of options, great gameplay, long, good story.

Might and Magic VI & VII- Good hack and slash gamepay, sprawling (especially VI), sub-par story. Don't bother with XIII, IX looks like it may be good when it comes out.

Deus Ex- Absolutly brilliant game. Uses a FPS engine, but is closer to MGS with many more RPG elements. (Exp. levels, inventory, etc.) Whole game is voice acted.

Baldur's Gate series- Best RPG's for PC. Period. There are 4 titles in the series (BG1, BG1: Tales of the Sword Coast, BG2, BG2: Throne of Bhaal). It starts out great with BG1 and just gets better as the series progresses. Does have effctive turn based combat since you can pause at any time and issue orders.

Planescape: Torment- Uses BG engine, but more story based. (BG still has a great story).

Icewind Dale- Also uses BG engine, but more combat based. (BG still has great combat.

If you don't mind dated games check out Eye of the Beholder I and II (stear clear of III). Bertayal at Krondor is great fun and is now freeware. Lands of Lore: Throne of chaos was groundbreaking and a great game. You can find info, places to buy, and downloads of long-abandoned PC games at www.thrunderdogs.org
Also the little-known shareware serieses Exile and Avernum are a blast and competes well with commercial games (it does have poor animation though). Check them out at www.spidweb.com They also just put out a new game called Geneforge that looks interesting. (Not for windows yet though...)

Basically, there are some very good PC RPG's, but there is something fundamently different between them and Japaneese (console) RPG's, so some people just don't like them. I like them both.

RPG!!

I'd say Final Fantasy 8 and Summoner. They both look good and well if there are any RPG's with better storylines than FF8 tell me :D

The company that translated Dragon Knight 3 into the English Knights of Xentar went bankrupt, so it's no longer available. As for Grandia PC, there is no such thing. The sequel has a PC port that's supposedly really bad, however.
