I guess with all these Steam extras we can forget to see this game in GOG

Basically the precursor to Torchlight; the same game just older.

I played that game back when it came out. A fun little time-waster. And I mean that in a good way.

Hmm..I thought Steam had an anti-Spyware policy

They got rid of that stuff a while back, IIRC.

I loved Fate, it was the first family-friendly action RPG and I enjoyed sharing it with my kids. But since Torchlight came out I haven't touched it …

I can answer that for you any game over five years old is considered a classic given game lifespans today. I'm just kidding but it seems to be the way it is nowadays.;)

I still play all four games and you can buy them all cheap right now also. I'm talking about the boxed copy's by the way not the Steam price.

I think it is closer to the truth than you think - well-reviewed game + at least 5 years = classic.
