I say recent coz I've played the old classics like many of the Final Fantasy games, Dragon Age and Lost Odyssey.
I want to sink my teeth into a new one.
I also played Skyrim but didn't like it at all.
Any recommendations would be much appreciated

The only recent one I've played is Skyrim.

I expect you've played it though.

Thanks for responding but yeah I just edited my post to include Skyrim.
I didn't enjoy it as I prefer a proper structured story to invest in and Skyrim doesn't offer that.

Ah cool. I loved Skyrim, I thought it was ace. I do wish Square Enix would release more FF titles at a faster pace though (and not anymore set in the world of FFXIII).

But yea, I too am interested to know of any good RPGs for the ps3 or even the Nintendo DS.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. A great RPG.

I've only tried the demo, but Ni No Kuni looks excellent. Might be more you kind of thing if you prefer Japanese RPGs.

If you have a PS3 try the demo.

Fallout 3 has a good story imo. Its more of an action RPG though. The RPG style(levelling up, perks, conversation with NPC's etc) is similar to skyrim....but with a better story I think.
Its very free roaming , you can go anywhere in the game as soon as you get past the intro stages.
It's maybe a bit to FPS style in action for a classic RPG player though, although it does have a turn based system called "Vats" for combat, which you can use as well as normal fps style combat.
If you do all the side missions and DLC's(GOTY edition has all of them) , you can over 100 hours gameplay easily.

Get the Mass Effect Trilogy.

Awesome games, and well worth the price IMO.

Fallout 3 is very similar to Skyrim, if you didn't like Skyrim you may not like Fallout, I guess it depends on your reasons. Mass effect trilogy is a good shout.

What does the OP class as a 'proper structured story'?

I'd throw in another vote for Amalur but it might be too 'unstructured' for the OP. Witcher 2 was fun but I know a lot of people who got bored of it very quickly, despite the full on sex and violence

Fallout 3 is good and has a story and you can free roam and divert from it, BTW Skyrim annoys me so that is one thing.

Mass Effect, only played 2 (PS3) and part of 1 (Steam) (as I still have to finish some Valve games first on the PC) ME2 is excellent.

But how about Dishonored, you level up your character, you have a number of missions (5 I think) you can play them so many different ways, no kills or slaughter every baddy. I would suggest giving it a go, and it is mainly story lead.

Dishonored is a very good game but I wouldn't call it an RPG. It has RPG elements, the same can be said about Far Cry 3...

I guess games that are story-focused and character driven. I found Skyrim hard to get into because of the lack of this (and cutscenes).
Thanks for all the responses

Dark Souls if you want real life torture. Great game but far and away the hardest console game I have ever played

But it appears to tick the OPs requests
