    Here's some legit reviews for the 3 games. The first is only available on ps3. The next 2 are multiplats that are available on pc as well. Finally Bloodborne is in the works as a PS4 exclusive.

    I highly recommend buying all 3 of them as they are by far the most satisfying/rewarding rpg's I've ever played.

    They are action-adventure games with some minor RPG elements. Just because you can choose how to allocate your level up points does not make it an RPG.

    Aside from the fact that, that is the core element of nearly every rpg you're right

    Traffic Tequila


    Elder Scrolls provides atmosphere and story.

    I'd like to see a modernized version of Leisure Suit Larry, one that is more in touch with the traffic-sensibilities and sentiments of today.

    For example, imagine an RPG in which you're a German stewardess (working for Lufthansa) named Elsa. You (as Elsa) are involved in an intricate international airline narcotics-smuggling operation between Moscow and Miami. However, on the stop-overs, you have to get off in Moscow and deal with the Russian mafia as a pistol-toting assassin, hired to take out rogue agents for the Yakuza in order to gain the trust of your various nefarious employers. You also take time out to visit your lesbian girlfriend Mia, which is alright, since you're bisexual.

    Actually, Airlinesimulation.com provides comparable inspiration.

    Leisure Suit Larry is decidedly an Adventure game, not an RPG.

    Don't get me wrong, I grew up on adventure games - the old Lucasfilms games, the larry games, King's Quest and Quest For Glory. Some of the most important games to me growing up - I still believe that the first Monkey Island game is one of the best games ever made.

    I always played D&D Pool of Radiance on my brother's Commodore 64 as a kid. Great game. :D
