I'm currently wasting a huge percentage of my free time playing Gothic
. I tried it out because I already played Gothic II
of which I got a free copy from my employer then (because he is publisher of the game) and I liked the game very much. I didn't know that Gothic, its precedessor was that good too, looks like Gothic II simply had some better marketing.
I didn't find a shop with the single game so to be able to play it I had to buy the Gothic Collectors Edition
, containing 6(!) CDs full of RPG game data. It contains Gothic, Gothic II and the extension pack to Gothic II. If you are looking for a perfect tool to minimize your free time, just buy it.
