Dark Dreams of Furiae - a new module for NWN:EE! Buy now
I thought for awhile that I didn't like every character of a given class being near identical, yet there's only two games that have kept me coming back to them over sixteen years: The Baldur's Gate series and Everquest. In both cases, the main differences that seperate different characters of the same class are made during character creation. Otherwise, they're pretty much the same and it's up to player to decide how they want to play them.
I've tried to like a number of games and have quite a few in my library, but having complex character builds, where a character will barely scratch the surface of what they are capable of makes me come back to these simpler times every time. I get that this might create reason for replaying, but Baldur's Gate or Everquest have had me replaying them with simple character designs for almost two decades. I prefer trying different parties and making different storyline choices to playing the same class ten or more times to see what they're capable of.
So I'm asking for help in finding older or newer games with fairly simple character design and game play. Any help is appreciated.
