    They have rpg elements in the way you progress your character, but they are hardly rpg's. The stories are so opaque you can easily wander from boss to boss without having a clue what is actually going on.

    RPG's are a broad genre...The Souls games definitely qualify since they tell a story through world building and description rather than implicit cut scene narration. You could argue Skyrim isn't an RPG if you wander around for 100 hours missing major plot points.

    I count them as RPG's personally, but I get your point. It has the levelling up, items and equipment management etc, all key aspects. And actual interesting world's, more so than many of the main line rpgs, for me ( bias series fan of course ;) )

    Diablo III is quite cheap these days.

    Spellforce III - RPG/RTS getting very good reviews

    X-Com 2 as a long shot ?

    Grim Dawn
    - Worth every penny !!

    They might not all be classic RPG's but they have elements and are all strong worth your dosh games.

    KOTOR 1 & 2 are still up there as some of the best ever.

    The original Dragon Age. The other 2 are a bit meh.

    System Shock 2 is the original FPS/RPG and tbh still did it best. With the best setting.

    Pillars is similar to Divinity in that there's no real hand holding with quests it gives hints and you have to work out where to go yourself.

    If you like open world action RPGs, try ELEX. It's from the makers of Gothic and Risen. It's rough around the edges, but it certainly has it's merits!

    I second Spellforce 3, just completed my runthrough and its a very good game.

    In regards to fallout, I would try number 4 if VATS is the only thing holding you back. With 4 they vastly improved gunplay in that considerably to the extent you can largely ignore VATS and I know plenty of people who do. Infact they toned it down compared to prior games to an extent in terms of perk's and it now only slow's down time rather then stop it alltogether like in FO3.
