Question of the Week:
What is the best Western RPG to start with?


  • Alex FullerAlex Fuller Managing Editor RPGamer Staff
    Knights of the Old Republic is a good one for getting into WRPGs in general, but wouldn't recommend it for getting into isometric CRPGs like Baldur's Gate et al. I enjoyed KOTOR but it hasn't helped in the slightest in getting me into them and really teaching me anything.

    However, I have got round to playing through Divinity: Original Sin II and that is the one CRPG I've tried that has grabbed me, albeit at the second attempt (it was hindered by the laptop not being up to snuff spec-wise). It seems a lot more friendly to new players, and playing it on Explorer Mode means that I'm ok just having a basic understanding of all the systems and whatnot, and don't feel like I'm punished not knowing exactly what everything does, while all of the others I've tried have left me with a straightout wtf feeling. It's not as open as others, but the other side of that is that there's more of a direction for you to follow. Whether it actually gets me to play more is another matter, as I know a lot of the things I like about aren't present in others.

    I'll say World of Warcraft. It's easy to pick up and play, it has plenty to enjoy as a single-player or as a massively multi-player experience, and there's enough different things to do that the player can experience the open-world freedom that is characteristic of Western RPGs.

    Yeah I would probably second wow. I know a lot of people who weren’t even gamers before that got into wow, so the proof is already there for me that it works. Diablo 3 similar angle.

    Something like fable is also a good one because of how clever it is and it’s also very simple. For something harder, one of the 3D fallout games.
