    Been on the look out for a decent 3D RPG for my Desire.

    I've seen Crusades of Destiny, but I'm not keen on the graphics. I read a post somewhere in these forums from the developer of Ravensword for iPhone, and he said he was looking at converting it to droid.

    Till then are there ANY decent RPG's out there. Fantasy ones, preferably in 3D. Or can someone recomend any decent PSX ones that I can use with PSX4Droid? Been playing Diablo for a bit, and its not bad.

    I'm thinking of a droid equivalent to Oblivion, Fallout 3, or Dragon Age. Yes I know it's impossible to port these monsters to the droid before someone comes out with a sarcastic reply. However surely the early Elder Scroll games are low enough quality to be ported. Maybe even Morrowind.

    The Droid? You mean the Droid 1? I doubt anything better than Crusade of Destiny will even work on the Droid. You'll want something more powerful... like the Droid X\Droid 2\Galaxy S.

    Sorry my bad. I meant Droid as in Android LOL. I'm on the Desire so pretty much any game will run.

    Zenonia just came out recently. It was originally an iphone game i believe. It's basically a combination of any gameboy zelda game but with a quest system very similar to what you would find in WoW. I'd check it out, very influenced by anime and has a cool story so far.

    Get an emulator. Particularly the SNESoid. There's a bunch of rpg games (such as zelda, final fantasy series, mario rpg, secret of mana etc...) on the snes in which you can play on your desire, with the snes emulator.

    You can always go with Chrono Cross or ffVII for the psx. if you buy the gameboid emulator i suggest the golden sun series, FF tactics advance, sword of mana and such. also im not sure if you would call it an rpg, but Hero of Sparta from gameloft has some decent graphics.

    Here is a rundown with release dates:

    - Crusade of Destiny (Already out; See Market)
    - Ravensword (Release Date Unknown)
    - Earth and Legend (2010)
    - Dungeon Hunters (Already out; See

    As stated previously, you can also opt to buy and download PSX4Droid and run PSX (Playstation 1) games on your phone, though this app is still in its infancy and contains a good number of bugs, and compatibility is decent at best.

    Furthermore, my team and I will soon be beginning development of a low-poly 3D MMORPG for the Android OS called Clockwork Rune. Check out Clockwork Rune | Bonafide Software for more info and follow us on twitter at:

    What I really want to see is an old school RPG, ala an old Dungeons and Dragons-style RPG, not all this "action rpg" Diabloesque crap. Pushing buttons really fast is good mindless fun and all, but lets see a game with some story, genuine character development, etc.

    Just watched a trailer for it.

    Yet another Japanese cutesy nice n fluffy RPG, with about as much violence, and gore as a episode of Telly Tubbies.

    No thanks :(

    I agree. I'm no anime fan so any game with large-eyed characters or dialog even a 5-year-old wouldn't say is right out. Unfortunately for me, that eliminates most of the suggested titles. I think I'm expecting more out of my mobile phone than it can give.

    It is not that we are expecting more than our phones can deliver, it is that classic RPG in the way that we understand it is no longer (and very rarely was, for that matter) a mainstream/profitable category. It means we have to wait and pray there is someone as passionate about the old-school as we are, and willing to develop a product knowing that it will not be as profitable as the modern incarnation.

    The problem is WoW is not an RPG; at least, not in the definition as it existed 14 years ago. WoW and games like it are what I would call "action/adventure in a fantasy setting" games. Classic RPG is more in the vein of Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights, the old Final Fantasy games, the Elder Scrolls series, or even non-fantasy settings like the Mass Effect, Knights of the Old Republic, or Fallout series.

    Heavy on detail which may not be directly necessary toward the gameplay , but in a way that gives a depth to the game world. Typically a large variety of items - but with a sense of purpose and design to them, not the mass-generated random crap ala Diablo and its spawn. Enormous amounts of detail in the control of various stats and equipment for the character, and (typically) a party controlled by the player with equal levels of control. But most importantly of all, everything that happens in the game is story and character driven.

    What does that mean exactly? It means that everything which occurs in the game, from the combat to the quests, exists to as a subtext to the events of the character's purpose and story which you experience. In a game like WoW, there is no story, or at least not one that is relevant to the purpose of the game: getting phat l00ts and killing mobs. It has been a gradual evolution that I mark as starting with the original Diablo game, in which "fantasy" games were introduced to the mass market by way of making them brainless and action-oriented. It is the modern gaming equivalent of a "Monty Haul" campaign (google it if you aren't familiar), in which the point of the game becomes the game itself, and an endless sequence of material-based rewards.
  24. RPG = role playing game

    are you role playing in WoW? ummm yeah. you're just role playing with other people, at the same time. that may be why they call them MMORPGs, not classic solo RPGs.

    an RPG is an RPG. it's the adjectives you put in front of "RPG" that make the difference.

    By your definition, nearly every game in existence could be called an "RPG". Need For Speed? RPG. I'm playing the role of a driver of a supercar, while developing character stats (track times) and upgrading my equipment (the car). :rolleyes:
