I'm pretty much the same, considering how much I really like the original game, yet I'm always pleased to throw my money at GoG.

I buy most new games on Steam, but I'm glad the option is there for people who want it.

Didn't think it was getting release yet? Then I remember GOG also has Early Access.

I don't really care about platforms, but I'm curious to see the final version of this game.

I think it has promise.

Glad it's possible to buy on Good Old Games, to avoid this ever-updating heavy monster Steam client.

I'm looking forward to it. Personally the original Gothic is my favourite of the series.

Can't purchase it yet, just a placeholder page at this point - you can wishlist it and get notified when it is available. Still agree - as discussed on the Early Access poll, I will wait for the actual release.

BTW, Solasta is apparently a day one Game Pass title, if anyone cares.

I have played Gothic 2&3 a few times but never played the first one. I will be excited to give this a try because the story will be new to me.

Gothic 1 is my favorite in the series

But that's mostly because it was fresh - and, aside from Ultima IX, the first modern open world CRPG. At least as far as I'm aware.

It was a revelation - and it represents the foundation of my favorite genre, with the possible exception of the immersive sim genre.

Gothic 2 was clearly better in certain ways, I guess I just felt it was a little too familiar when I originally played it.

I've yet to play that one properly, which is an obvious mistake on my part.

Only Gothic 3 here, and interested for the same reason

Great news for us all, great old games excels at being great. And talk about a game that could truly benefit from a remake, Gothic stands to garner a whole new audience out of this endeavour, as well as pleasing many existing fans. Now that, folks, is a complete win-win!!~

I loved G1 more than G2, but not just because it was the first one. The world/setting and story was way more smart and original, than the generic plot of G2. Where G2 excelled was the world design and exploration and gameplay. It was a lot more expansive, thus offered a lot more in those terms. But everything else, story, characters and world is a lot better in G1. It was obvious that they made G1 without a plan to continue it, which is why the whole plot of G2 was so generic. G1 on the other hand, was fully set in a prison colony. And the whole world was a lot more prehistoric than G2 which suddenly turned generic medieval fantasy.

Am I the only one here who believes that the original Gothic 1 is still perfectly playable?

It very much is. I did a full playthrough 1-2 years ago. And it was fantastic, even if the graphics haven't aged as well. But I'm afraid the graphics are part of what gives that game its atmosphere; it's feeling. And if you redo them, without identifying exactly what made the atmosphere, it'll be too different than the original.
