    I used to love playing Fantasy RPGs but haven't in a long time. Been playing Raven Shield and UT 2003.

    I loved Final Fantasy 7. I also liked the old Playstation games like the Phantasy Star series and Legend of Dragoon.

    What's out there these days for RPGs that aren't based online?

    Off the top of my head...

    Knights of the Old Republic
    Neverwinter Nights (it's two expansions)
    Deus Ex 2

    These are on the PC, but I have a feeling you may have wanted console based RPGs.

    You can play it online ... but the main game and campaign is single player. There is an online component so you can play the campaign or user created modules (which you can also play single player). You don't have to pay for it.

    Diablo II is a classic. :)

    My bad - I'm looking for PC games. My graphics card can't hande KOTOR. I only have a GeForce 2 MX 64mb. I borrowed the game from a friend and the opening credits started - then my system crapped. He told me the game rocked. That thought me thinking about other games out there. Dark Age of Camelot looks good but the online is no good for me.

    I'm even looking for something along the style of Evercrack.

    I just don't keep up on games enough to know.

    Ok...here's my list! By the way, Final Fantasy-style RPGs used to be all I'd play until I found games like Baldur's Gate and Gothic.

    FF-style:
    Grandia 2
    Septerra Core

    Traditional (like offline EQ-style):
    Wizardry 8
    Gothic, Gothic 2
    Baldur's Gate 2 (and 1...I saw them as a set for $20)

    By the way, check out Just-RPG.com for a huge listing and a lot of reviews. Also, the link in my sig goes to Japanese RPG ROMS for the SNES that never made it to the US (translated now)!

    Icewind Dale I + II are also pretty cool. Bit more hack & slash though.
    Also had alot of fun with Dungeon Siege. If you pick up DS's expansion pack Legends of Aranna you'll get the original DS for free.

    yeah, Dungeon Siege would be a great offline RPG to look into! The expansions make it a lot more fun!

    I loved that game. But IMO, there really isn't any good RPGs out there currently. I'd go back to SNES or PSX RPGs, like HandyBuddy said. They rock. :D
