    Default XbOx RPG's

    I got my xbox for christmas and now have just 4 games and i was thinking of getting another one. My favourite genre is RPG and none of the four games i own are rpg's. I was wondering if anyone had any rpgs for the xbox worth reccommending. I already have morrowind on the pc but it doesn't run great, it runs okay but not great as i only have a p3 500mhz, 128meg ram,
    geforce 4 mx440; i'm half tempted to get this but would rather get a good rpg that i have never played. AnY ideas ??

    Currently Xbox is lacking in this area. However, there are several in development that look rather good.

    True fantasy looks like it could be good, I think that is the name of it. Phantasy Star Online should be good, also.

    Should be good. Should be great. I feel this game is going to be another Halo. Oh OK well not another Halo but pretty close.

    Yo wassup bro.. I hear ya. Xbox is lacking on the RPG front!

    Check out Star Wars: KOTOR (www.swkotor.com), thats the next RPG that is coming out that will definitely be a killer.

    Xbox is going to be the place for innovative and fun rpgs in the future. You've got Sudeki, True Fantasy Live, Star Wars Galaxies, and the one game to rule them all... Fable.

    The thing about mmorpg is the lack story, most people will just hack away and eventually getting bored. Unless you have a great community, such as ultima online was. i remember back in the day when people would block the X crossing roads and force the weaker lvl people to pay a toll, at the time i thought this was cheap but i begin to like it, having the fear that someone might pk me at any point just added excitement. The other thing i like about uo is how the added a cool storyline into the game, there was a point were brit was in a siege almost everyday. Also on the website the had this radio thing where the people of the country mainly the heroes would talk about whats going on in the world of brit.

    IF True fantasy is anything as memorable as uo once was, that game should make a killing even though it will make a killing.


    baah..rant done
    I'm new, but i'm just so cool!

    I do believe suikoden 3 was announced for xbox. Though i did hear that awhile ago, don't quite know if thats true anymore.

    IMO that's exactly what the Xbox needs more of, japanese style RPG's.

    Morrowind on the Xbox was my first RPG, and I absolutely loved it. If it doesn't run well on your PC, buy & play it on Xbox...though of course, you won't be able to play the expansion. I guess there's also the Baldur's Gate port, but I liked Morrowind so much more.

    Dre hit the nail on the head. We have KOTOR coming out in the next couple of months, and it looks great. Huge Star Wars RPG, developed by Bioware. Then, there's SW: Galaxies, True Fantasy, and Fable later in the year. I heard PS2 was the place to be for RPGs, but so far I've been very disappointed. Morrowind kicks all their turn-based asses.

    It is a bad thing. Its just that guy likes really crappy games I guess. Well crappy in other peoples opinions. RPG's are great.

    Crimson sea is not an RPG.

    It has RPG elements. You have a party with you that you can move around on the grid. Your character levels up, as well as your weapons and you can mix and match items in the game. You also have magic abilities. So I would say it has some RPG elements based on that.
