Morrowind!^^

#3 Posted by Skytylz (4029 posts) -

Why not just play Oblivion?  Assuming you mean medieval as a setting with swords and stuff.  It's an RPG, mess of side-quests, and it has lots of stuff (TES-Style ;).  

#4 Posted by Ignor (2372 posts) -

Two Worlds may not be the greatest game ever, but you get to collect a shitload of items in a huge open world.
I have heard the sequel is better but I haven't played it myself.

Torchlight might work.  
 
Also who else read the title and thought "kinky".

@mylifeforAiur:  since I forgot the "official" hug emoticon i'll respond with this: <3
 
and with: morrowind is a given. imagine where she got the taste for this exact type of game :D
#10 Posted by velucyraptor (358 posts) -

You've listed all the better ones that come to mind, but if she's running out (I know I did), then:
The Sacred games 
The Divinity games

#11 Edited by valrog (3671 posts) -

If Gothic is there, so should Risen. I'm sure she'll enjoy it. I would suggest The Witcher, but it lacks "collecting a whole bunch of items". Mount & Blade perhaps? I'm not sure about the last one, though.

#12 Posted by Ignor (2372 posts) -

If you already own Oblivion, you may wanna check out this total conversion.

Has The Witcher been mentioned?

#15 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

Torchlight

#16 Posted by velucyraptor (358 posts) -

Although you asked for medieval setting I was about to suggest Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines, because your girlfriend's gaming taste pretty much makes her my soul sister &I loved that game - but perhaps it's the 'vampire series' you already mentioned?

It mostly never gets mentioned because people can't figure out how to play that game. 
People find it "too confusing" with all the potion/alchemy stuff, it's sad really since it's a great game :(
#19 Posted by Atta (135 posts) -
@Metalideth:  good pick. forgot about that one. noted on our list. thank you
@velucyraptor: sacred noted on her list as well, thanks. already tried divinity series (edited 1st post)
@valrog: risen is on the list. thank you. witcher...is kinda about collecting stuff is it not? but you're right she's gonna try it, but not now. mount and blade also on the list, although we agree the game looks crazy :D
@Ignor: noted....very interesting....very :O...maybe a game for me as well! :D thank you
@arab_prince: valrog mentioned it. thanks for the input though
#20 Posted by Unchained (1080 posts) -

Dungeon Siege games. 

#21 Posted by Brysonic (12 posts) -

Fallout 2 has all of that with the exception of the medieval setting.  
 
Apart from that I would say Arx Fatalis. It doesn't have much in the way of side quests though, iirc.

#22 Posted by Atta (135 posts) -
@KaosAngel: does not like it (1st post)
@velucyraptor: she hated redemption, loved masquerade (I loved both though, except for the bug in masquerade). if you are gonna go that way then I am also your soul sister, which weirds me out cuz' i'm a dude 
@endaround: played the second, though it was cool but waaay too short
@ZeForgotten: agree. currently playing it. i found the alchemy stuff (especially the research needed for the alchemy stuff) to be amazing
#23 Edited by Atta (135 posts) -
@Unchained: borrowed a copy of DS 1 yesterday, but the CD was messed up so it didn't work (and we couldn't find a non-torrent download of the one file we needed), but it is also on our list. thank you
 @Brysonic: yeah. the fallout series if for me. we have ME1 and Fallout 3 here, but she doesn't want to touch them :/
 
EDIT: sorry for double post -.-

i thought this was going to be about Rapelay, sigh, oh well.

#25 Posted by Ignor (2372 posts) -

Wizardy 8 is a good game, though it's hard as heck and the conclusion to the whole franchise.
Turn-based combat...

Hahahahaha haaahahaha, oh boy I'm so glad that pathetic excuse for a funny joke didn't get old a year ago on Giantbomb. 
Comedy gold right there, people! Genius!
#27 Posted by velucyraptor (358 posts) -
@Atta: Personally I'd be more weirded out by the fact that if her &I are sisters, &you &I are sisters, then you're dating your sister. 
Not sure how completely it fills the open world/side quests criteria, but she might also like Dark Messiah of Might & Magic. It has that same general sort of first-person medieval RPG feel as a lot of the others. Reviews weren't that kind, though I personally rather enjoyed it

Venetica? Don't know much about it but it seems to have some indie charm.

Thank you, thank you. I'm here all night.

Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga.
Takes place in a magical world called Rivellon, populated by both intelligent races, such as humans, and less intelligent creatures, such as goblins. Involves a lot of item hunting and there are also plenty of customisation opitions. My girlfriend loves it. I can't deny that it's a good game but I don't really like it as much as she does. I guess I'm not into Dragons and scavenging.

Neverwinter Nights?

Unlike Gothic/Risen, The Witcher doesn't have a huge inventory/backpack, so that's why I said you can't collect a lot of stuff. It's made so that you don't really collect a lot of things. Most of your inventory will be used for potions/runes/enchantments/quest items and aside from that, there's nothing really to collect. You will be selling a lot of items that you pick up. It doesn't have a wide range of weapons/armor (especially armor) and weapon takes a lot of space (correct me if I'm wrong here, I'm not sure for personal inventory, but in store it takes spaces based on its size). So, I definitely recommend it, it's an incredible experience, but just don't expect to have a ton of items.

@Ignor: it's rather my type of game. she's weirded out by first person
@velucyraptor:  omg ! also, same as above. it's more a thing for me. loved 7 and 8 to death
@armaan8014: added, thank you! :)
@Jasta: i agree with you. she does not ;)
 @Vitor:  added to the list. thanks. seems to be a fun game

I came here expecting something else...
#38 Posted by Jeust (10477 posts) -

Two Worlds 1 and 2

#39 Posted by MuttersomeTaxicab (667 posts) -

Din's Curse may not be the prettiest Diablo-alike on the streets, but it's definitely got some loot lust and some cool mechanics going on.
#40 Posted by Ignor (2372 posts) -

I wouldn't rule out Titan Quest either. That is, if she like Diablo-clones.

Ultima VII or Ultima Underworld.

#45 Posted by melcene (3056 posts) -

Along the same line of the Sacred/Diablo games are the Titan Quest games and the game Loki.

I'm sure if you get creative sex would suffice.

This lady wishes to role-play in a medieval setting with a whole mess of open-world side-quests, where she gets to collect a bunch of items.
I think it's cheaper to just buy her a game =/

Cheaper? Maybe...More fun? Probably not.

As someone who has played a fair bit of Loki you probably want to steer clear of it. It's a really cool idea, but that game needed way more play testing before it was released. Titan Quest would be good though.
