    You know, I think failure in stealth games should be costly. Tension is an important part of the experience. The problem with the old Splinter Cells (and you most definitely could not quicksave in...

    How is WT these days? I liked it at first, but once the honeymoon ended and it became apparent that all the major issues that were yet to be resolved (increasingly gamey and claustrophobic ground...

    KOTOR is a Bioware game from the days before they started taking themselves so seriously. The narrative is camp but good fun (Jade Empire is similar this way). Not sure how well it holds up...

    There's a perk for climbing stamina. Can't remember the class.

    Also, there's not a monster that can't be climbed to advantage. Some might not be as safe as others, but where's the fun in playing...

    Sword assassin is soooooo much fun. Also has the most powerful endgame skill for use against monsters you're climbing. Magic archer and not-paladin also get cool stuff, though. Don't forget that you...

    I wouldn't get too worked up about a 'build'. Most weapon types have (rare) elemental versions anyway, so you can do hybrid damage with non-magical weapons. It's worth trying out a few classes to...

    As an addendum to what I said earlier about enemy weakness: it's worth noting that pawns learn, and need to learn in order to use their skills appropriately. Just because you know that e.g. goblins...

    The first (and second and third) time I heard the term 'gamey', it was used by wargamers to refer to rules or play that were not in the spirit of the simulation. This could mean that a particular...

    Most enemies in DD have elemental and tactical weaknesses which can and should be abused. A large part of the game is just figuring out how to actually kill things efficiently.

    Morrowind be praised.

    Small nitpick: MW actually does have auto-leveling, IIRC, it's just not very noticeable. A bit like in Fallout 3 or Skyrim. Also, MW is notoriously unable to do much to...

    Unity of Command is pretty slick, but I bounced off of it pretty hard, I think largely because I can't stand Panzer General and its ilk. They always feel extremely 'gamey' to me, and mostly unrelated...

    You should be playing DA:I with a controller. Speaking of which: games that either won't recognise a controller if it is turned on or off during play, or lock you into one control mode until you quit...

    OK, thanks a lot for the suggestions. I'll give them a try. TWOM might be a bit grim (don't ask me why zombies are now cheerful), but I'll give it a try.

    Soule is neither as good nor as bad as people say. I find most of his soundtracks have 1-2 good tracks and a lot of poorly-conceived filler.

    I really like a good soundtrack, and usually try to give game music a chance. Inevitably, I switch it off eventually. Especially if there is an obnoxious combat track.
