There's something about telling me to ignore all the latest WRPG stuff from the last few years, as well to look at the much older games (from now defunct companies) that strikes me as odd.
Maybe it's all that stuff about WRPG's 'evolving for the better' as everyone is talking about? I'm supposed to disregard the 'evloved' WRPG's and look towards older models as "definitive"?
Perhaps your qualm with what I said might be reasonable had we this discussion 5-7 years ago.
And for the record, Rumble Roses is a Wrestler. And yes, Wrestlers are shitty no matter where you look.
More specifically he said you should play PC RPGs, which are significantly better than the console RPGs. Look at The Witcher, Neverwinter Nights 2 and the expansions, Mount & Blade (one of the best combat system ever?), King's Bounty: The legend and Space Rangers 2. You can also check the great Action RPGs from western companies that doon't require any shooting, like Titan Quest+ expansion, Sacred 2 and the Guild Wars franchise. Or the great MMORPGs that have the deepest and most varied gameplay like WoW, Warhammer Online and EVE Online.
