Know any good RPGs where you can just get lost, wander and explore stuff?

Played the Elder Scrolls and Fallout Games. Played the Fable games, though I didn't really find them all that entertaining.. Couldn't Find a copy of Two Worlds 2 and people told me to avoid the Gothic and Divinity games because they where dull and glitchy and Dark Souls because it was to linear as was as open world wandering/exploration was concerned..

So other then those, any suggestions?

Deus Ex. It's not anything like the Elder Scrolls games in terms of scope, but I spent ages exploring just because I loved the world.

Also check out Risen 2.

I rather liked exploring the towns in Nier.

I've played the Deus Ex games, and whilst I liked them I wouldn't exactly, as you said, call them all that "open" when compared to some of the more open world games of late.

Also check out Risen 2.


I never even looked at Risen 2 after Risen 1 turned out to be a big pile of... a not so flattering substance. Did they improve the sequel any?

Sure, you could wander in Nier, but there wasn't exactly all that much to do (aside from killing the occasional monsters).

Dragon's Dogma


See, I've been tempted to get this one but I'm finding it really hard to get any sort of reliable info on just how exactly the game works. Some say you can wander and explore as you chose, whilst others say that if you do, all your likely to find is a quick death..
The online part also has me a bit confused here.

Infinite Undiscovery


Played that one. It annoyed the crap out of me when the bloody lunar rain started and half the characters went ape**** and where all but useless in combat.

Think that was the last open world RPG I finished. You really could tell they tried to build it as an MMO.

Not really an RPG...

I really don't recommend Dragon's Dogma. The scenery is too dull.

I'll second Dragon's Dogma, and you may want to look into Divinity 2: Dragon Knight Saga. I didn't care for it, but there's a lot to see, and the game provides no waypoint markers, so wandering, exploring and getting lost are part and parcel of playing the game.
