Any games out there with a similar feel to the Mass Effect series? Doesn't have to be sci-fi. I actually like fantasy settings more. Game with decisions. Games with good combat and some rpg elements.

Alpha Protocol.

Yeah, it wasn't reviewed well and I can't, in good conscious, call it a good game. It's loaded with technical flaws and glitches, the shooting controls are pretty poor, and there is really only one viable build in the game (Stealth and Pistols.); but there is actually a lot of fun to be had with it.

The choice making, in particular, is some of the best ever implemented and you just can't beat a spy RPG.

If you get a wild hair up your butt, I say give it a shot, but Witcher 2 and Dragon Age: Origins are both really good and worth trying first.

Yes FF6, and Chrono Trigger. Except they are better in every single way.

Do you do stand-up?

Anyway, there aren't that many space age games on the market, period, let alone ones of this flavor.

Chrono Trigger is definitely better, although not by a whole lot. And I don't say that lightly either, Chrono Trigger is a VERY special game to me. Although then again, so is Mass Effect.

FF6... maybe. I'm too tired to go into detail, so let's say that both FF6 and ME are really good, and call it a draw :)

Then again, neither game is that similar to Mass Effect beyond the fact that in Chrono Trigger you fight a massive, world destroying abomination from deep space. Although I suppose both have a decent amount of choices. Nothing like Mass Effect though.

You know what I'd really like? For Bethesda to try their hands at a sci-fi RPG in a similar vein to The Elder Scrolls and/or Fallout 3/New Vegas. That or Starflight 3.
