From: Mark Grimm

I’ve been hunting for a new action RPG game to play. Since this is perhaps my favorite genre, I have at least meddled with most popular action-RPG’s. My transition to this genre was provoked almost entirely by Blizzard’s Diablo. Here is my list:

For simplicity’s sake, the games that I have NOT played are in bold.


Baldur’s Gate
Baldur’s Gate II
Diablo II
Diablo II - Lord of Destruction
Dungeon Siege
Dungeon Siege - Legends of Aranna
Dungeon Siege 2
Dungeon Siege 2 - Broken World
Neverwinter Nights + Expansions
Sacred - Underworld
Titan Quest


Baldur’s Gate - Dark Alliance
Baldur’s Gate - Dark Alliance II
Dungeons and Dragons: Heroes
**Fable - The Lost Chapters
**X-Men Legends II

There is my current list. If you have any action - RPG recommendations or warnings, please let me know.
