Any games that are similiar to gothic
Are there anyyyy games out there that are similiar to gothic?? besides risen ??
Is gothic 3 forsaken gods worth while to play? i liked gothic 3 it was pretty cool n different
gothic 2 and raven
gothic 4 and the expansion
morrowind and all its expansion
Try Fable 1 (TLC). It's a great little game, very atmospheric, and it's sort of similar to Gothic.
ive played fable 1 it was pretty fun
Two Worlds I and with some reservations (mainly, the game isn't very good) Two Worlds II. Also, what little I played of Divinity II: Ego Draconis seemed a bit Gothic-like, although again, nothing particularly impressive. Maybe it gets better once you get to be a dragon.
Also, if you liked Fable I, try Fable III; pretty easy and all, but fun. And if you've got access to an XBox360, Fable II; the best in the series if you ask me.
Avoid Fable,as its not any similar to Gothic games,neither is any good.
Closest things to Gothic would be elder scrolls series and Two World.
So enlighten me mister,why is fable so similar to gothic games ?
Well, let's see.
Both are highly immersive, both are RPGs, both feature dragons, both have unlimited inventories, both require special places/people to train with (the hero chamber in Fable and trainers in Gothic), both have great storylines and characters (you can compare Nameless's four friends to the heroes who help the Fable hero along the way), both have old mentors who guide you through things and set quests for you, both have huge places filled with undead creatures, both can be quite grim (YMMV), both have a distinct, clear-cut "evil," both games have geographical similarities (frozen places, lava-filled places, etc) and so on.

Well for me,when talking about Gothic games,most important aspect of game is exploration,big world etc. Which Fable lacks,that's why i wouldn't say its similar to Ghotic,because big world makes gothic what it is.
For you. Learn to view things from other people's perspectives.
Morrowind is huger than Gothic, and has a lot more places to explore. Does that mean it's a Gothic?
To me, Gothic's about the ... I dunno how to call it, that subtle thread that binds everything together: the general mood, the atmosphere, the music, the characters. The open world's got nothing to do with it.
I do believe that there have been like 2-3 threats about this. Meh...
Hmm... that's a tough one. I think they already said all the games I know that are similar to gothic. But fable 3, I don't recommend it, they took out the utility spells and replaced them with potions.
Maybe you should try other classics that aren't like gothic but are as good in their "class". Like deus ex(I have only played human revolution so I asume the older are also good), thief, jedi knight series. And some less known like enclave, oni and a bunch of other I don't know or can't remember right now.
Assuming you haven't played them
I just remembered a game that is probably the most similar to gothic(after risen obviously), at least in game mechanics, Venetica. It's story is quite silly and it might get repetitive towards the end but before you get to that point you should get quite of enjoyment out of it.
When you level up you earn points which you can spend at a trainer to learn/improve you skills, the stats have different points and you learn them whenever you whish on the spot. Also in order to proceed you need to join a guild of some sort. I'd say, it is probably partially inspired by gothic, but of course that's just me.
If you're planning to try Divinity 2,make sure you get the Dragon Knight Saga version,it's much more polished than the original.And yes,it does resemble Gothic
I`m not such a big gamer ,i`ve played some rpgs but i can only tell you that there`s nothing like Gothic. There are also great games like others suggested : The Witcher ,Fable ,K.O.T.O.R etc
I played the witcher it was rather odd game but it was cool, i just youtubed divinity 2 and venetica they look cool i think imma check them out
If you want some company on your adventures, give
Drakensang: Dark Eye a try. It's for the most part scripted
and linear but the medieval setting is GORGEOUS.
Did I actually say that word?
It's also very sexy
Funnily enough, this guy's sort of right. Skyrim's got all the dreariness and conflict of Gothic 1.

Plus, The Witcher is much closer to Gothic than The Elder Scrolls, since both series are 3rd person action RPGs that follow the story of a specific hero and have lots of dialogue, but on a technical level, The Witcher's world is divided in small regions and interiors and many barriers are present, while the Gothics stream large maps at once. Also, the first game uses the Neverwinter Nights 2 engine and carries over many elements from it so the combat is more like a "real time turn based" deal than true action. The second game has a purely action combat system. Some people seem to hate it, but I liked it well enough on both keyboard and gamepad.
