It felt like that loot was there no matter what level you were, and that went a long way to make the world feel completely hand-crafted. Same idea with enemies not respawning and being hand-placed in the game world. That game just really did a good job of creating an open world that was completely hand-crafted.
That should give you a good idea of what the Gothic games are like, except that Gothic 1&2 are even better than Risen in terms of story and atmosphere.

They're cheap and easy to purchase from GOG or GamersGate. You should give them a try.
