I can't get past stage three, shamefully.

If there's one thing modern games do right it's give you a sense of direction. One reason I can't get into Realms of Arkania, Might & Magic etc is that I feel lost as soon as I start. I'm fine with the graphics (for the most part), but beyond that it's very hard to get a foothold. There's also the lack of automapping in a lot of older games so you can easily get lost - Might & Magic 1 is terrible for this. I had no idea what I was doing at all.

But it doesn't ring true just for RPGs. I have Earthworm Jim 1+2 (from Gog.com) and they're incredibly hard!
