I'm in the RPG mood for a game that isn't fallout. Problem is, that most of open world RPGs(not JRPGs, fuck that noise) Seem to fall into one of 2 categories: Medieval, or your typical fantasy garbage. I HATE That shit, swords and magic and orcs are so generic and boring, and yet, it seems that it's the status quo when people think of RPGs

I've been thinking about playing KOTOR 1 and 2, even if it is star wars, Wasteland 2 also seems appealing, same with Atom RPG, what other good non fantasy/medieval RPGs would you recommend?

I suppose this counts as an action-RPG, and the setting is very uncommon. In any case it's great and has a PC port now, so I recommend it.

KOTOR 1 and 2 are good and you should definitely play them. Don't be put off by Star Wars, the first game is very standard Star Wars but the second is much more experimental. They're both good games, /v/ tends to prefer the second one but that's because of the themes it's playing with rather than because it's a clearly better game. They're not really "open world" in the sense you might mean, though.

Aside from those, you should play VTMB and Deus Ex if you haven't. Alpha Protocol is fun but janky.

If you're up for a post-apocalyptic science-fantasy, Shin Megami Tensei Imagine is an excellent option. It's a moncolle (monster collecting) formula RPG title from the series that pioneered said formula. Imagine is the richest game in the series, with many years' worth of content.

The game world consists of several separate large areas, but it's the closest this series ever got to "open-world".

Granted, the game suffers from some flawed and dated quest design, and may take quite some time getting used to (especially if you don't know Japanese), but it's free so you've got nothing to lose. The official version is gone, but there's a private server you can find at "reimagine.online"

Yes it's an MMO but it's solo-friendly and extremely PvE-focused

Carevaneer 2, a post apocaliptic trading RPG, it's about a desert world (at least where you are) where the civilisation collapsed due to climate change, can be repetitive since i focused so much on delivering good that i forgot what the main quest was about and some plot points.

Basically, the world is swarming with hostile demons, but you have the option to "negotiate" with just about any demon you encounter on field and in dungeons, and convert it to your side. (As long as your human character's level is as high as said demon's or higher, of course.)

The process is pretty simple: You walk up to the demon of your choice and spam the designated emote(s) several times, and RNG does the rest. There are 4 possible outcomes:

1. The demon joins you

2. The demon leaves you a gift and disappears

3. The demon disappears without giving you anything

4. The negotiation reaches a dead end and the demon remains hostile

In case of #4, just kill the hostile or run away from it, and try again with another demon until you win the RNG's favor.

Once you've made a contract with a demon, you can summon/unsummon it at will. Demons help you in battle. You can carry multiple demon contracts, but you can have only one demon summoned at a time.

Each demon you have comes with multiple AI options you can enable or disable. If you like to multitask, you can manually control your demon's actions in battle via hotkeys. You can even press Tab to assume direct control of your demon and move it around, but it can't stray too far from the owner.

Once you've got multiple demon contracts, you can have them fused together to create a new demon. The new demon will inherit the parent demons' skills (within its compatibility limits), but it will usually have to do a little training to unlock said skills. Each demon can have up to 8 skills equipped at a time, but can keep all its learned skills "on the bench", for lack of a better analogy, and equip it at your leisure. That said, once you unequip a demon's skill, you can't get it back, so choose carefully.

Atom is just Soviet Fallout. Wasteland is the game Fallout was based on, with Wasteland 2 being a really late sequel. If you don't want Fallout you might as well skip these.

Recommendations:

Deus Ex

Prince of Qin

The Scroll of Taiwu (if you speak Chinese)

Transistor

Underrail

Quest For Glory 2 & 3 (#1 takes place in medieval, #2 arabia, #3 africa)

Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse

Since you posted Fallout I might as well suggest Jagged Alliance 2, especially with the community 1.13 Patch.

Its more of a tactical roundbased RPG. But if youre into creating your own character, leveling up yourself and also the mercenaries you hire along the way and like RPG-like roundbased combat then its a really good game.

You technically go around a Country trying to free it from its evil female president(Practically the US if Hillary would have won).

You free up cities, do small quests(if you want to), recruit townspeople into your ranks, train militia against the countries Army to defend your freed cities, level up your character(s) and your fellow hirelings abilities etc etc.

You get gear by defeating enemies from their dead bodies or you order them online for money, which arrives at the local small airport.(Which is where the mines from each town come in)

Theres also a sci-fi mode where some monsters from the presidents experiments will attack you, but they attack everyone, the countries army, the townspeople, militia, and you.

Also big Tigers, randomly.

Its good fun, and it'll keep you busy for weeks, especially if you dare go for the insane difficulty in 1.13

My current game is going on since over a year, simply cause the army attacks me so often that I have to keep retraining militia while making sure I dont run out of funds.

Underrail is post-apoc, though not particularly focused on storytelling but takes heavy inspiration from Fallout.

The Geneforge games are fantasy, though not your typical Tolkien-ripoff, since you're part of mage organization that uses artificially created creatures to bully everyone around them.

Planescape is an obvious choice since the setting was purposely chosen to be as different from the usual D&D stuff as possible.

Age of Decadence was already mentioned, but it takes place after the fall of the not-Roman empire, so it's basically Dark Age post-apocalypse.

Arcanum is a non-gay take on steampunk made by former Fallout developers.

Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines is non-gay urban fantasy before women ruined it, also made by former Fallout developers, where you get to play a vampire.

Sabres of Infinity and the sequel are about magitek Napoleonic warfare, thought they are text only and more CYOA than an actual RPG.

How interesting. I read about the game and Im finding it nice. But, which is the best private server for it? I hear that reimagine.online is a great one, the Chinese one is based on a very old build of the game and thus unideal (also has microtransactions which reimagine is free of), and that the official servers that are based in China are still running.

Thank you for the writeup.

Jagged Alliance might be up your alley. It's a strategy RPG where your character is the leader of a mercenary company (and a merc himself) trying to profiteer off a fictional-but-realistic wartorn Carribean nation. It's very open world; you get an objective but you can go anywhere, look around in houses and find shit. The exploration is similar to Fallout in that regard, but it has better combat and I think it came up with the sweet interrupt system.

A more modern and also good game (but with a few wacky things thrown in, like German mech suits) is Silent Storm. The expansion is called Sentinels so most people just call the game "S3" for short to include that part. Both JA and this game have fully destructable environments, but S3 takes the environment modeling up a notch with much more detailed buildings and even realistic structural support that you can collapse. Both games also allow you to choose a variety of different mercs, with campy but charming voice acting, and JA also has you manage how the mercs get along with each other. They even have explicitly outlined racial preferences. There's a big American dude named Grizzly in JA2 that hates chinks and Russians and will just leave your group if he has to put up with them. Some of them are psychopaths and enjoy killing people with knives. All sorts of fun stuff and unique dialogue lines to find.

"Reimagine.online" is indeed the best server the game currently has.

Now, like I said, the game suffers from flawed quest design, so brace yourself for that if you do decide to play. Doing the main story acts can be tedious, and you'll unfortunately have to get them done for certain important unlocks. On the bright side, you're free to progress at your own pace, and the game's story is pretty good.

Here's the address to SMTI's English wiki, it ought to help with just about anything:

megaten.sesshou.com/wiki/index.php/Act_0:_The_Sin_of_Weakness

That specific page I pasted contains instructions for the very first main act to get you started. The wiki has an article for each act, with links to next and previous for easy navigation. Enjoy.
