Is there a single dungeon crawler as great as Arx Fatalis?

No I don't want tile based movement
No I don't want turn based combat
No I don't need a party

Yes I want real time interaction
Yes I want unique dungeon environments
Yes I want a good mix of puzzles and action
Yes I want npc (plus killing them)
Yes I want tightly interwoven areas

Why is this so hard to understand?
How is it possible that the last game of this kind is over 20 years old?
Like, throw me a bone already, I'm coping and seething over here!

    Arx was originally meant to be Ultima Underworld 3, so give those games a go.
    Also keep an eye on Monomyth. The demo I played gave me pretty strong Arx vibes.
    Also play System Shock 1 and 2.

      To think the game would've been much more successful if only had that name

    Kind of agree to be honest. When people talk about liking DRPGs, I don’t think their definition of drpg and mine match at all

    Play Ultima Underworld, it's really good when you get over the controls. Possibly the best of all time.

          The frick are you talkin about you imbecile?
          Ultima Underworld doesn't have turn based combat.
          Neither does it have tile based movement
          Are you having a fricking stroke?

          Go frick yourself, get outta here you moron. Throw yourself in a ditch and take your shit ass party based homosexual dungeon crawlers with you.

          the problem is not that they are hard to navigate
          In fact I don't think that at all. I can still go through Elminage Gothics first dungeon floor by heart.

          I like action games and I like dungeon crawlers, so I just want those combined. What's wrong with that?

    Sounds like you want generic rpg set in a dungeon, not an actual dungeon crawler. I hear Oblivion is good, maybe try that.

        I specifically included Dadk Arisen, because of BBI. The rest of the game is not.

      here's a piece of trivia
      In the german version the goblins had the same voice actor as Eric Cartman.
      And it worked surprisingly well

    Pretty much every party DRPG can be a solo character DRPG depending on how you play it. Makes it a lot trickier in the early game/in certain fights, but most games in the genre tend to give the single character all the exp that would be split across the party so it’s not actually that bad. Fun experience as a challenge run imho.

    Not really. And yeah I guess Arx and King's Field are very similar but I get different kinds of satisfaction from them so I wouldn't automatically suggest them both to the same person

    loved the immersive magic system, but man it was a c**t to draw runes during a fight

      That's what pre-casting is for. The only runes I ever got comfortable drawing on the fly were fireball and mega movis, and that's all you'll ever really need in this game, unless you're trying to do something fancy.
      Hopefully Wolfeye makes a spiritual successor to this instead of another isometric game, though I liked Weird West.

    If your "game" decided it didn't need intelligently placed checkpoints because it has quicksaving, it's a sandbox for you to play pretend in.
    >Is there a single dungeon crawler as great as Arx Fatalis?
    literally any Dungeon Crawler that's a finished game.

    It's not hard to understand.
    It's hard to make.
    Real time is an entire extra dimension compared to turn based. So is tile based compared to 3D.
