Default Gothic 1 Goodness

October 19th, 2011, 18:01
With the recent release on Gog.com which offers a point-click-and-start approach to Gothic 1 on Windows 7, last evening I decided to buy the game and fire it up - mostly to just see it run and wax a bit in nostalgia.

Well, that was about 14 hours ago and I just stopped playing. I've done what I haven't done in the longest time - I pulled an all nighter. For this crime I will have to suffer the wife's /rollseyes for the rest of the day and somehow muster enough willpower to stay awake for the rest of the day and muddle through the inevitable uptick of chores that wifey is sure to assign me - punishment for behaving so childish.

But it was worth it. I only played G1 one time when it first came out. For years I have been obsessed with G2 and NotR and mostly forgot about G1. But this game just oozes with RPG goodness. It's hard. The quests are anything but cookie cutter. Exploring is fun because if you look carefully you find stuff you NEED.

Aside from the controls, what a spectacular game. I am having so much fun with it.

If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
