If you do not buy Wasteland 2, you're not an RPG lover...

Fair enough, but I still think calling it a Fallout clone is a gross exaggeration. It doesn't play any more like Fallout 2 than Fallout 2 plays like Wasteland. It's just an evolution of the sub-genre.

I don't like the look and feel of the screens I've seen of this game and the developer's history doesn't look that impressive either.

I'll pass for now. Games are getting way too expensive for my taste. At most games should be 49.99, not reach out into the 60s or even 70s.

I realize production costs are getting higher but wages damn sure aren't. Its going to get to the point 10-20 years from now where a single game will cost 1/4 of the bloody system

For years I have craved an RPG worthy of calling amazing, but in the past few years or even longer. Finally, the brilliant writing from the original Wasteland will be coming back to Wasteland 2.

This draws my attention to a bigger issue. RPGs have fallen to the casual crowd that have low attention spams and therefore i'm a minority that want a proper RPG. Everything comes to mind that has failed to be a true success.

Mass Effect 2-3, stripping down the RPG elements to a near basic barebones level, making the games incredibly easy. Even on a Insanity blind playthrough.

Casualablo III, Diablo 2 was the greatest ARPG of all time IMO, but Casualablo 3 was devastating failure. Stripping the game down to the barebones minimum (ONCE AGAIN) and making it so easy, that I can play with one hand blindfolded. I will never buy another Blizzard game again.

Fail Souls I and II, Fail Souls was the "successor" to the masterpiece that was "Demon Souls", but failed on almost every level, except for difficulty. Still, difficulty does not make a game good. Anyway, Fail Souls II improved on the original FS mechanics, making it more flexible and adding variety, but it was still a dreadful experience, compared to Demon Souls.

Fallout 3, ughhhhhhhh.... I shouldn't have to explain everything that is wrong with this game, but I will anyway. Um, who actually thought it was a great idea to plug in a bunch of BS storylines. "SAVE THE WORLD DADDY" What a nightmare and the game was so poorly optimised, that I had to use mods.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution, this game was not a fail by all means, but the boss battles made me go WTF?! I wasn't sure what this game wanted me to do, stealth or guns blazing "Call of Tryhard" style. The boss battles were simply disgusting, but this game is not as bad as some of the games listed.

Shadowrun, this is probably one of the best games listed here, but it had some terrible elements you simply cannot ignore.

Skyrim, I forgave Oblivion for it's HORRIFIC level scaling because it had brilliant story and side quest elements, BUT... Skyrim is no exception this time. It fails to do anything right, whether it be optimisation, atmosphere, combat, RPG elements, lore, skills and so on, it did not deliver anywhere. This is the PRIME EXAMPLE of an RPG designed for the mainstream casual community to generate revenue. I shouldn't have to put mods on a game to make it run properly!

There are plenty of other games I can mentioned like Dragon Age Origins, but these were the games that drew the most attention and did not deliver.

I actually agree with you on every single point about the games you have listed!

I bought Mass Effect 3 the day it came out. I was so disgusted with what EA/Bioware did to it I sold it the next day (I did give it at least five hours first, but my god..). It was hard to accept the second game as well when I first started it but I plugged on and I did enjoy the story and characters after a while, Mordin? Brilliant!

I'll check out Wasteland 2 if it is what you say, Like you I'm getting bored of yawn fest so called 'Rpg's"

TC I would argue that you are no longer a rpg fan! I on the other hand like RPGs, like all the ones you mentioned and had problems with.

I will be buying wasteland 2
