Specialization over multi-classing as old school?

Am I missing something from Chainmail, because AD&D (1E) had multi-classing but no class specialization. It also had dual classing and…

I absolutely loved Alpha Protocol. I have wanted another game like that one for a long time.

To be fair -

Old Battletech mechs WERE direct rips from Macross / Robotech. Exact copies. Horribly obvious stealing.

Battletech wasn't the only ones, though. There was Jetfire, from…

Great!

It'd be cool to win Plague Inc. Evolved, Stardew Valley, or Stellar Tactics. Anything else and you can redraw it for someone else! Thanks.

Seriously not a fan of open world. At all. Even the game that do it the best, IMO, would benefit more from a more structured limitation of options and directions.

See, I find that interesting, as MMO(RPG)'s got that element from many, many of the cRPG's it emulated. A staple of (I'd argue most) cRPG's is a quest journal, and the difference between "kill all…

I keep seeing the 'MMO' nature of DA:I being mentioned, but I don't personally find DA:I (or ME:A) very MMO-like. I'm very much not a fan or MMO's.

Is it possible that people mean more the 'open…

I like to do above the line/below the line when ranking stuff like "all games from BioWare" or whatever.

I'll do that now, with a partially joking, partially serious division.

On the off chance I win a raffle, I already own Halcyon 6 - otherwise, not picky!

Here's to another 10 years!

Having used to run a site as well, one that more or less ended because I was tired of dealing with just this kind of thing, I empathize.

After DA:O would be roughly DA2 time.

So… we're saying the same thing.

ME1 = 2007
DA:O = 2009
ME2 = 2010
DA2 = 2011
ME3 = 2013
