I am thinking about making a small RPG. I know some basics of openGL, but I do not want create my own engine.

My criteria are:

  1. Ease of use
  2. Can do rpg game
  3. 3D

Which game engine is ideal for a 3D RPG?

    \$\begingroup\$ No, I am just stating that Unity3D is almost certainly the best option. And you are not going to get any other options unless you have a language choice. \$\endgroup\$ – The Communist Duck Feb 11 '11 at 21:03
  • \$\begingroup\$ You cant answer this "subject question" with a clear answer. you should look on other things such as, what skills does the developer team persist? which platforms do you want to publish this game on? I like Unity3D myself, but others prefere Unreal Engine because of its speed and effects etc. \$\endgroup\$ – BerggreenDK Mar 17 '13 at 20:52

It all depends on the language you want to use. Py-Game or Blender's game engine are easy to use, in python (so easy) and open source. If you're going to make a game that requires a real engine though, PeterK is completely correct in saying that unity is by far the best (publicly available) engine on the market.

Take a look at Ploobs Engine, it supports XNA 4, opensource and has lots of features:
