Unhappy Looking everywhere for a new RPG game

Hi everyone here on this forum.
I am interested in finding RPG games that is really nostalgic.

I have looked some time after games that resemple Diablo 2 and 3.
I have in my search for a new RPG game found Titan quest and this Grim Dawn, which looks like RPG games that I would like to play.

I have played and finished both Diablo games (and yes more than once in same campaign)I have also looked at Torchlight and Path Of Exile.

I have tried other semi like RPG games like "Baldurs Gate" which did not make my blood boil ... sadly and I have heard about a "semi" low key game called "Dreadmire" (Vr game) that is not released yet)) which I hope can help me BUUT - I wanna play more RPG games NOW!!

So here comes my question - now that you guys have heard about my lifestory.

Can you recommend any nostalgic RPG games for a RPG gamer that is looking for the Thrill like old times?

Hope you guys can help me.
Thank you.

would like to play, as in 'have not yet played' ?

I'd recommend giving either one a try, both are among my favorite ARPGs. GD has a darker setting while TQ is more ancient Greece / Egypt setting. GD also has some quality improvements, so unless you want the TQ setting, I'd recommend GD.

semi RPG, really ? That is about as RPG as you can get, it however is not an ARPG, sounds like you are looking for an ARPG.

are you looking for a thrill like old times or for an old game, because Baldur's Gate definitely is the latter.

I'd say give GD a try, since it sounds like you have not done so yet

I agree with Mamba...you donīt search a RPG, you search an ARPG, which is completely different. No wonder, Baldurīs Gate didnīt suit you.

Try Grim Dawn, itīs really fine.

Some people swear by Din's Curse.

If you don't need eye-candy then that might be a good place to start.

And yes, I recommend both Titan Quest and Grim Dawn as well.

I always thought it was modeled after Dungeon Master (and yes, so is EoB, which came 4 years later)

You're old but correct. I never played Dungeon master 'cus I ain't that old yet! Just thought it was too close to EoB and that was my first game on my first self bought (and built) PC.
