(re: RPG’s as opposed to Adventure Games)
i like RPGs with a good storyline and character development. the first RPG i ever played was sierra’s Quest for Glory 1. I didn’t realize it was in its own category… i just thought of it as an adventure game with fighting!
i enjoy the final fantasy games. those are the only RPGs i’ve really gotten into. i’ve played through some of Planescape: Torment and i enjoy it in small doses, but haven’t gotten invested like i do in adventures. i think there’s actually too much going on in that game. i prefer a game that has a strong storyline to follow, and there are so many different things going on in P:T i start to lose track (so the story is not as strong and engaging for me).
i am planning to play the other Quest for Glory games (so far i’ve only played the first one) but i’m waiting until after Tierra’s VGA remake of QfG2 comes out.
