Some RPG Recommendations?

My favorite genre is role-playing and I'm craving a good RPG right now lol. Preferably one that has classes and high-end achievable gear. I've played the big-name ones already (battleheart, KOTOR, Wayward souls, Aralon, Ravensword). Any good hidden ones?

Avernum. The Baldurs Gate games. Knights of the Old Republic. The Quest. Undercroft. Warhammer Quest, if you consider that.

Not too much of a fan of old school RPGs, but I'll give warhammer a try. Seems interesting

It's different than MH certainly. It's a pretty textbook JRPG. I haven't played this version of it, but it was excellent on PS2.

Just check out some vids. Sadly Im not a fan of turn based should've mentioned that lol. RP may be my favorite genre, but I'm really picky when it comes to it

I think ima grab swordigo, it seems fun. I missed it when it climbed the charts. Downloaded it when it was free, but never got the chance to play it. Thanks!

Also I never played Dungeon Hunter 4. I hear you can complete it no problem, and if you want you can grind for the best gear without spending a cent. Should I play it or pass?

Skip Dungeon Hunter 4. If you want DH 1 and 2 are actually better.

If you want something free that's pretty good, Dungeon Quest's loot-heavy dungeon-crawling gameplay is a great pick, despite the lack of a story.

Swordigo is one game you shouldnt miss.
