I've played Gothic (great game) but not Risen. My friend said it was a good game but only for a one play-through. And I haven't watched trailer of Risen 2. I'm more detached from new games than I was 10 years ago since I have a rather crappy computer. Have you played Vampire The Masquerade series (Bloodlines and Redemption)? These are also very good games.There is also Arcanum, Summoner, Sacrifice (my favourite game ever besides Fallout 1, although it's not much of an RPG) and that's about it. I have to play this Risen (thanks for recommending) and Fable which I haven't played yet. I've played some jRPGs but I never liked too much focus on annoying fights which took 90% of time and were just boring.
I've given you positive reputation for this post so I hope it came down to zero or even slightly above it (have no idea how many points I gave you, hope it was more than this neg repper). Great to see more Wiedźmin fans :].
