Is there a Gold Box RPG that is quite easy for a new comer to get into and to be able to learn? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I think "Gold Box" lumps together quite a few different games. The classic games most often connected with the term "Gold Box" are the ones in Collection 2, as well as the Krynn series. They're probably quite similar to each other in terms of difficulty. I'd recommend to watch some gameplay footage of e.g. "Pool of Radiance" (1988, not the 2001 game!) and if you're okay with what you see and it's not too oldschool for you, get Collection 2.
You will also get access to Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures (FRUA), which I personally consider the best investment of the bundle. Even if you end up not liking the official Gold Box games or find them too difficult, you can find tons of more accessible fan-made adventures for FRUA that are free to download. FRUA also has a more accessible UI and the modules partially use better graphics. If you want to run hacked modules (which is highly recommended!), you need to invest a little bit of work first (see here
), but it's not that difficult and totally worth it. And last but not least, the small FRUA community at https://ua.reonis.com
/ is very friendly and helpful and can assist you if you have trouble getting into FRUA or the Gold Box games of Collection 2 (+ Krynn).
On the other hand, if you find you don't like the gameplay of these games, try the Eye of the Beholder series contained in Collection 1. It's a completely different subgenre of RPG, grid-based 3D dungeon crawlers with real-time combat. The RPG elements are lighter, simplified and I believe the games are quite easy to get into. The drawback is that you have to draw your own maps (in your head or on paper), or use third party programs to help you with that. Otherwise it's easy to get lost in those 3D labyrinths.
EDIT: Oh, and another advice: Unless you're in a hurry to play them or don't care about the price, maybe wait for the end of the sale
before buying them. Since they're currently not discounted, it's not guaranted but perfectly possible that they will be part of a flash deal later on during this sale.
Thanks for advising me on the Pool Of Radiance games. After looking into them on YouTube and other forums I went ahead and purchased them. Like you said they do seem a little easier for a newcomer to the D&D RPG's to get into. So far I'm liking the real time combat and I must admit it's actually quite fun drawing the the dungeons on grid paper haha.
