I think I am going to grab both Stronghold games. The castle building and defense just looks like it would be a lot of fun to me. I like that setting a lot. Similarly the setting of HoMM appeals to me and once upon a time I really enjoyed playing M&M VI. I am grabbing all the M&M RPGs on sale except the final installment that was such a sad and sorry conclusion to the series. :-(
Maybe I am crazy, especially reading the first HoMM is difficult above but I think I will start there because if I like it I just want to experience them all and enjoy the improvements as they come in later installments if I enjoy the games. With sale prices like GoG has going for the holidays it is pretty hard to go wrong trying things out.
Although it is not a GoG game, I am wondering what people think of Warcraft III, in particular its level of difficulty for a newbie?
Also, no comments so far on the RPG/RTS hybrids but I am wondering what you guys think of the ones I mentioned as first RTS experiences with RPG elements tossed in.
Warcraft III is good, but you'd probably be better off starting with Warcraft or Warcraft II.
