The Witcher 2 is coming out on Xbox 360 pretty soon (no way I could play it on any computers I own) and that got me thinking about some of the older CRPGs that people praise. Balders gate 1 and 2, PlaneScape Torment and the original Witcher are all games that I'd like to play but I have a bad past with PC games. I bought Deus Ex 1 and 2 and they run like crap on my PC (or they crash immediately.)
I'm thinking about getting the Witcher for my mac and upgrading to Mac OS 10.6.8 to run it. That probably won't run terribly right? All of the other minimum requirements are met.
As for the other games I downloaded Fallout for free on GOG and it ran as soon as i installed it (divine intervention?) I kind of think the game feels dated and I don't really like the combat so far, but it is alright. Those older CRPG's like Baldur's gate and planescape are from roughly the same time period. Would I be able to just get them off of GOG and play them on my crappy vista that can only run games like Starcraft , diablo, and Fallout? Fallout was my first time getting anything off of GOG so I'm wondering if every game will not be a pain to get.
Do you have any suggestion for this type of game that is worth playing? I'm I just being stupid for wondering if +10 year old games could run on my computer.
Baldur's gate is going to be remade soon so I can hold off on that. But are there any other games from that time of CRPG that I should play? Icewind Dale?
