All I have right now is an Xbox 360. I have the following games and will rate them according to how much I've enjoyed them
Batman Arkham Asylum - 7/10
Dark Souls II - 4/10
Deux Ex: Human Revolution - 7/10
Devil May Cry 4 - 6/10
Diablo III - 3/10
Elder Scrolls IV - Oblivion - 2/10
Elder Scrolls V - Skyrim - 6/10
Fable II - 7/10
Fallout 3 - 6/10
Final Fantasy XIII - 8/10
Halo Wars - 6/10
MGSV - Ground Zeroes - 5/10
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - 5/10
Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm going to come off as a total pleb, but almost NONE of these games are fun. THEY SUCK. THEY SUCK SO FUCKING HARD. I groan when I look at my abysmal selections. The most fun I had was with FF13, but there's nothing left for me to do except grind out my weapons/accessories. Diablo makes me want to slam my head against the wall until I die, it is such a miserable boring piece of shit.
Skyrim/Fallout feel a mile wide but an inch deep, and after the first 100 hours everything feels the same, I'm not remotely interested in playing all the quests. I like lore, but I prefer reading it online when a specific subject intrigues me, I am not at all pleased with the dialogue heavy presentations of most of these games. That's what spoils MGS and Deus Ex for me, despite their interesting gameplay. I have nowhere near the patience needed for Dark Souls anymore.
What I really want to play is a good RPG or RTS or action RPG. I want something with satisfying core gameplay but with LOTS of attributes, skill trees, abilities, and a sense of growth. Oblivion sucks because the gameplay isn't even fun, and the stat growth system requires a tedious amount of micromanaging.
An RTS would be nice but Halo Wars feels too arcade-like for me. I want to LARP as a king with heirs and concubines and alliances, preferably set in the real world. I don't mind reading text if it's for making decisions, but I could not care less about fictional world-building like what MGS or DE demand.
Fable II was amazing at first, but the amount of things to do ran out quickly. I don't like the fact I've maxed out all of my skills without trying.
So, to summarize what I'm looking for:
-RPG with satisfying gameplay and lots of stats/skill trees that doesn't require paying attention to plot/characters/dialogue?
-Action RPG with the same as above?
-RTS based on real world, with empire/alliance/family building?
-God games? Ie city/world building
And finally, are there any good anime games like Dragon Ball, Gundam, Bleach, Naruto, etc.? I know they are fun on other systems, but what about 360? Is DBZ Xenoverse worth it? It's like $20-$30 used; that's my whole budget pretty much. Some of those Naruto games look great. Gundam is always kino.
I like to play games while I listen to political, history, creepypasta, or internet history podcasts/YouTube channels.
Can anyone else me with my very, very specific needs? I know it's very tempting to tell me to "kys faggot".
Thank you all very much, and I'm very sorry for being such a pleb faget, I mean it really.
Pic related. Wish I had a fucking PS3 or PS4. Hell even a Nintendo system would be better than this tedious hellhole of a selection.
