Genius that I am, I still somehow managed to read "RPG" into the original post. Umm... I''d like to add Super Metroid and Zelda 3-5.

MDK, the first one, was an excellent game. I still play it on occasion. I bought the second one but it sucked. Anyway it''s not an RPG or really an adventure, but it''s a third-person light-hearted shooter. But it''s a useful example of how to do the action sequences - for example, all of the enemies'' attacks are relatively slow-moving projectiles that you can dodge, and you ran quickly and jumped high.

Metal Gear Solid 1 on PSX.
Metal Gear Solid 2 on PS2.
Devil May Cry on PS2.
Deux Ex,Thief1&2,SystemShock2,Ultima''s on PC.
Resident Evil 1 on PC.
Tomb Raider 1 on PC.

Oni is quite cool too, especially with the shapeshifter cheatcode, playing with the kung-fu-ish female model is a real bliss..

Gothic for a hybrid action-adventure-RPG, but it could''ve had a 1st-person view too. More games need BOTH view perspectives...

new out on the xbox is dead to rights...similar to max payne with more "hardware" and variation due to some entertaining minigames.

graphically inferior to payne and proof that mouse and keyboard is still the best control method for movement and looking. uses an auto aim to compensate.

mgs 2 is still one of the best and i too enjoyed Oni.

Blade of Darkness was the best game I played last year. Excellent 3rd person action/RPG, although not so many liked it (it had rather ackward controls so it took a while to adjust to them)

My votes go to Metal Gear Solid (2 is probably better, but I haven''t played it yet) and Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation. The first two TRs were really good, but the third one sucked completely. TLR brought back what made the series a success in the first place while keeping the extra control elements from 3 like crawling.

As for RPGs, I''d pick Chrono Trigger or Xenogears over FF3 although it''s a close choice. Honorable mention goes to Lufia 2 for all the nifty puzzles.

if chrono trigger or xenogears had multiplayer (which they should have) then it would be up there with Secret of Mana (which Senken Densetsu 2, did i spell that right?) and S.D.3.

Hi. I''m thinking of making a 3rd person action/adventure game and I would like some opinions on games people have played that are really exceptional. When I say 3rd person action/adventure game, I mean everythign from Ikari Warriors/Smash TV to Diablo or Dungeon Seige. I''m looking for good examples throughout the ages of good gameplay. The best 3rd person game I''ve ever played is the game Oni (developed by Bungie and released by GODGames.) Any thoughts?

That new BC game for the Xbox is a 3rd person action adventure game. it''s not yet released but i reckon that this game will be better than ''The Sims'' which when was released, nearly everyone who played it, got hooked!

Relentless (AKA Little Big Adventure) is my all time favorite 3rd person RPG. Cut sequences are grat, and the plot is very ....well....original. The graphics were great for its time (1996) and frankly I haven''t had such fun with a game since.
