    Dark Age of Camelot - This is THE GAME that brought online gaming Player vs Player (They call it Realm vs Realm because there are 3 Realms all trying to claim superiority over each other) into mainstream video gaming, and you are kicking someone's *** straight up at the same time RIGHT NOW in real time! It was the best thing ever until WoW came out.

    *I became the best Berserker in the world (again) after over a decade layoff, in 3 months, with one arm (Elbow Surgery), with a Razer Naga Epic Chroma (there is NO SUBSTITUTE):

    World of Warcraft - Destroyed it and broke the Auction House over a decade ago.
    Dragon Age Origins - Mastered that game with all 3 characters. Loved that game so much.
    Orcs Must Die! 2 - 5 skulled every level with the War Mage and the Sorceress (Seriously, get that ****ing game! - so many hours of fun).
    Dishonored - Beat it in every way possible. Loved that game on Xbox360. Have a PS4 (well, my son does), and haven't played Dishonored 2 because I am one of those guys to wait until it's $20 intead of $30 or so as it is now. I can wait. The original Dishonored is one of the best single player games I have ever played due to combat mechanics. It's so much fun.
    Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn - May be my favorite game all time, when it came out. Beat that game with many characters. You would literally never be able to beat that game with every combination of charcters imaginable. Not if you only include this life, anyway. You can literally be ANYTHING you want to be in BG2. This was the first games to put Dungeons and Dragons into mainstream video games. Still to this day, that game sets the standard for RPG gaming's finest.

    What should I be playing now?

    I need some ideas, and I don't care if it's single player offline or that next great MMORPG I should be playing.

    What do you all think I should be playing right now?

    Just gonna rattle a couple off the top of my head;

    FF: A Realm Reborn
    Dishonored 2
    The newest Deus Ex
    Pillars of Eternity
    Divinity: Original Sin
    Dragon Age: Inquisition

    That's all I can really think of without doing any more additional research.

    Pillars of Eternity is legit!

    Torchlight II is a great Diablo clone.

    It's just that it's like $50 right now. Looks so freakin awesome though! I may break down and just get it. I need something new and DAoC is broken right now, WoW bores the hell out of me, and I tried Torchlight II but not for long, I didn't like it. Maybe I should give it another try. I have it on Steam.

    I've never played any FF game ever. IDK why I haven't. My son told me Deus Ex games were really good, never tried that either. I own Dragon Age: Inquisition, I just couldn't get into it that much, mechanics seemed a little clunky compared to DAO. Maybe I should give that one another shot, too. Never heard of Divinity. I'm gonna check out some gameplay videos of that and the new Deus Ex.

    I don’t know. I loved Dragon Age: Origins, and felt they have screwed up the franchise with every game since. DA:I is terrible...

    You really should get this game. Supports co-op too. My son and I played many hours together on it. I like it best solo though. I was really sad when I 5 skulled(best you can get) the last level "Twisted Halls" with the girl Sorceress. Was no reason for me to keep playing anymore at that point. I already mastered it with the dude War Mage. So much fun this game:

    I'll 2nd the Divinity nod. Spiritual successor to BG2 in many people's minds, and about as close to pen-and-paper DnD as I've seen in recent years. Original Sin 2 just released, with a GM-mode that looks pretty unique and compelling if it is pulled off well. From the recent playthru on YouTube, Larian may well have done it. (Can't say for sure, as I haven't experienced it myself).

    Broke down and paid $26.99 for Dishonored 2 at Game Stop for PS4. Hope it's amazing like the first one.

    Nice. I'm only halfway through the first. They just came out with some DLC for #2!
