I've never played any Gothic games before...
...so knowing that, a _lot_ of the posts here mean nothing to me. I somehow acquired this one (maybe in a bundle, I really don't remember). Anyway, this game is in my Steam Library somehow. I'm debating playing it.
My questions for you all: seriously, as a stand-alone title, how is this game? Too many people here are all "OMG IT AINT GOTHIC DONT BUY" but that means nothing to me, as I've never played any of the Gothic games anyway. Plus, I already own it, so I just want to know what the game is like.
Are there any others out there it compares to that I might have played? Have YOU played it for an extended amount of time? What are your non-hyperbole thoughts on it?
Thanks for your time.
