I can't vouch for 2 or 3 because I never played it.


Another great thing about the series - each one improved on its predecessor.  BT 3 > 2 > 1.   Each is deeper than the last. Not to mention darker.

All I'll say about BT 3 Thief of Fate:  your Chronomancer mage allows you to travel in time - including to locales like Berlin 1945 on the eve of Hitler's defeat.   It's. Awesome.

The Bard's Tale is one of the first RPGs I played. I was barely a teenager...12 or 13. The writing is excellent and evocative. If you like using your imagination even partially while gaming you will like the first one. I can't vouch for 2 or 3 because I never played it.

Sounds like you are older than me, btw...I was too young to actually play Pong in the 70s :)

Im pretty sure I was younger than that though not by much. I missed the first two bards tales but have fond memories of 3 and Wasteland.

The original Wasteland blew me away on my C64 :)

Yup - Younger me didn't realize there was a finite number of energy packs available.

I also didn't quite understand the three legged "woman of the night" and why she would only take 1 party member...Yeah I was young.
