At CompUSA, back when they had a brick-and-mortar store here. I see that Amazon currently has a used-like-new copy for $15 + $3 shipping. Worth every penny, given the length of the game.

[EDIT: I was looking at the boxed version of the game. You can jet jewel-case versions quite a bit cheaper through Amazon.]

So noted BJ and after I am through the present ones I have, will check your game out - sounds fascinating from your review.,

I would add Dragon Age : Origins , Elder Scrolls : Oblivion , Divinity II : Ego Draconis (liked it a lot !) , & Hunted : The Demon's Forge to that list . Also , any of the old Dungeons & Dragons based rpg games (Icewind Dale 1&2 , Baldurs Gate 1&2 , Planescape Torment , Temple of Elemental Evil , etc .) would be a great way to become familiar with the rpg world !

Planescape: Torment was very well written. I generally hate the Quake/Diablo engine, much preferring turn-based combat. But at least P:T let you set the combat to pause when it was time for someone in your party to act. It was a nice compromise and a wickedly dark and funny game.

If ES:O is the game I'm thinking of, I hated the combat. You actually had to move the mouse around to swing your sword. (1st-person perspective) Great open world exploration, but I couldn't handle the combat. Baldur's Gate really started it all, and were great games. As far as ToEE and the other D&D-based RPGs (Eye of the Beholder, etc.), I can't be objective. I liked them a lot, but was already a devout D&D player long before those games came out. So I can't judge how someone who isn't already a D&D geek would like them.

I used to play D&D a long time ago . I played dwarf fighters with a Chaotic Neutral alignment . Had a lot of fun playing that alignment ! Oblivion is first person . I would rather play first person , however , I can adapt to third person no problem ! I have a disc copy of Planescape , & have not played it in some time . I've got a ton of games on my "to play" pile .

I recall Oblivion as being first-person too, but not turn-based and having to manually swing your sword around using the mouse.

For Quake/Diablo engine fans, Torchlight was pretty decent. Less successful than Fate, but I enjoyed it more.
