Games Like Gothic Series

games like gothic
Games like Gothic offer a refreshing take on the fantasy RPG. Much like the Witcher, they challenge the pre-existing conventions in the RPG genre and put their own unique spin on it.

The kingdom of Myrtana is under assault from orcish hordes. The king of the land is fighting a losing battle to contain them and requires magical ore in order to forge powerful weapons to break the deadlock. Khorinis is a large penal colony used for the purpose of mining this ore, prisoners are sealed inside, prevented from leaving by a magical barrier.

The player lands inside this colony to find it in chaos. The Colony has splintered into three factions, leaving it up to the player who to ally with and who to combat. Players can side with the loyalists who remain true to the king and Myrtana, the rebels who wish to escape, or a cult named the Brotherhood who worship an ancient god.

Gothic offers over 100 hours of gameplay with numerous quests and activities. The environment is richly detailed and interactive, more so than many games today. For example, the player can hunt wild animals and earn raw meat which can be sold as goods or used to heal damage. If the player chooses to cook this meat with a stove or frying pan, it heals much more effectively.

The player can develop a variety of skills to choose the character that they want. Trainers are where the player can expend experience points to improve their skills. The faction system in the game will affect this as certain options will be closed off to those who sided with one faction over another.

Gothic was a game ahead of its time and it’s no surprise that it had sequels. Some of the other games on our list might whet your appetite if this one didn’t.
