I agree, Arcanum has a flavor all of it's own with the whole Steampunk vibe and Tech vs Magik thing going on, but it's one of my all time favorites that should be played.
In fact I just got my console playing nephew a copy from GOG, as he is like you getting into PC RPG's for the first time, and after a little adjustment is loving it, and tough to beat the price at $5.99 and even cheaper if you wait for a sale.

In fact I'm replaying it now as a Magik user this time around and it plays completely different from my Tech character.

Just make sure if you do play the game that you fully mod it up as it makes a huge difference, everything from lost content put back in to widescreen resolutions, HQ music, extra animations, all help bring it up to today's standards.
