Riguardo questo gioco

War has been waged across the kingdom of Myrtana. Orcish hordes invaded human territory and the king of the land needed a lot of ore to forge enough weapons, should his army stand against this threat. Whoever breaks the law in these darkest of times is sentenced to serve in the giant penal colony of Khorinis, mining the so much needed ore.
The whole area, dubbed "the Colony", is surrounded by a magical barrier, a sphere two kilometers diameter, sealing off the penal colony from the outside world. The barrier can be passed from the outside in – but once inside, nobody can escape. The barrier was a double-edged sword - soon the prisoners took the opportunity and started a revolt. The Colony became divided into three rivaling factions and the king was forced to negotiate for his ore, not just demand it.
You are thrown through the barrier into this prison. With your back against the wall, you have to survive and form volatile alliances until you can finally escape.

Features include:

  • One of the biggest RPGs with over 100 hours of gameplay
  • A large variety of weapons and spells for your character
  • A living world where people go to work, sleep, eat and fight to survive

La grafica è quello che è ma la storia ed i personaggi sono stupendi. Grandissima varietà di luoghi ed oggetti, la possibilità di potersi unire all'inizio con tre diverse fazioni alza il livello di rigiocabilità.

Non fatevi ingannare dal poco tempo di gioco, ho finito questo capolavoro all'epoca e in versione originale.
Cosa dire del primo capitolo di Gothic? E' una vera perla.
Nonostante i bug, i difetti grafici e le traduzioni spesso scadenti resta uno dei giochi di ruolo più vivi e affascinanti della storia. Una trama meravigliosa si unisce a un mondo di gioco vivo e dinamico che reagisce in conseguenza al nostro approccio e alle nostre azioni.
Un gioco che andrebbe restaurato.

Il primo di una trilogia fantastica(non contando Arcania). Un vero capolavoro. La trama è davvero ben studiata e a mio parere è la migliore tra i tre Gothic. Lo consiglio a tutti gli amanti degli RPG, l'unica pecca è che se lo acquistate da steam darà dei problemi tra cui crash frequenti. For Gomez!!!

il primo di una serie fantastica per chi ama il genere fantasy.La grafica ad ogni episodio si è evoluta e migliorata fino ad essere molto, molto bella. La trama è il giocatore che la svolge.peccato che il primo episodio non sia più supportato dai pc moderni e non ci sia una traduzione italiana

Good game, but do not buy it for Steam. Application errors and "access violations" up the ♥♥♥. Save yourself the headache and get the Gothic series from GOG.

Still one of the best RPGs ever made with great quests and immersion.

If you want it to run in all resolutions, Windows 7/8/10 and 60 fps use the Gothic System Pack. You dont need other workarounds.

This is one of the best games ever made and a must-have for every RPG enthusiast !
Although the game has been released in 2001 and thus doesn't meet current graphical and gameplay standards à la Skyrim (2011), obviously, it clearly proves that the German developers Piranha Bytes understand how to thrill players with astonishing medieval in-game atmosphere, exciting main and sub storylines, hilarious patters, avid anticipation for level-ups, rewarding skillsets, story influencing decisions, powerful orchestral music, and a real existing in-game live band !

I played this as a teenager and I feel like playing it again from time to time because in terms of atmosphere Gothic remains unmatched to date. Several different endings and skillsets encourage players to replay the game and dig deeper into the story.

Thank you Steam for offering this (rather old) game on your platform !!! :)


Some technical remarks:
To get the game running on newer OS avoiding the Access Violation Error right after the start you'll have to make sure GOTHIC.exe runs in compatibility mode (Win XP works fine here). The file can be found in Steam's standard directory:
C:/Programs (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/common/Gothic/system

For many steam users the game starts in window mode and won’t let you access full screen mode.
To fix this you either need to install a patch as described in Karuhm’s Guide:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=132167831
or people who don’t want to do that can simply overwrite the video resolution settings in the GOTHIC.ini file, which is located in the same folder as GOTHIC.exe.
If the non-cancellable Pyranha Bytes intro video annoys you, just search for the „playLogoVideos“ entry in the .ini-file and set it to 0. There are lots of useful settings in there.

Gothic was released in 2001, but it already had advantage gameplay features and graphic you can't find in other games back then: a lively open world with rich dialogues and voice acting, you can climb, swim, eat,... and pretty much everything that makes a RPG great and immersive. (and they say Morrowind was a revolution for RPG, PFFFFT!)
the story is not the best, but it's good and interest enough to keep player in the loop. combat and control will confused people who just started the game, but you will get used to it.
because this game was made by a German company and wasn't well marketed in worldwide, it wasn't well known (even up to now) and was result in being a very very very underrated gem. therefore, if you are a RPG player, this game is a must.

here are some recommend mods for you:
Unofficial patch: http://www.worldofgothic.com/dl/?go=dlfile&fileid=164
the game itself is not really buggy, some claim this patch causes more trouble than it worth but I had no problem with it.

Texure patch: http://www.worldofgothic.de/dl/download_247.htm
Gothic 1's textures are very outdated, with this texture patch, it will bring most textures from Gothic 2 to G1. it's not your kind of fancy HD texture pack, but it will improved the graphic A LOT and keep the visual style in a lore-friendly way.

This is truly, together with its sequel, one of the best RPGs in gaming history, and probably a game that set standards for lots of games that came after. It has a well thought combat system that once get used to, it makes the game even more fun. Most importantly it has a unique storyline with player choices that DO matter. And despite the lack of graphics, even now a decade after it was released, it is worth a buy for a true RPG fan.

A classic! And part of my childhood. This game is one of the best RPG ever made. The soundtrack is really beautiful and the gameplay is good if you can get familiar with the clunky combat. The game world atmosphere is great. It will surly absorb you with his hostile world, if the 2001 grahpic isn't a problem for you.

Btw I would recommend it to get it from GOG or if you have it on Steam, download Gothic ½ SystemPack for widescreen support etc.

Note: I've finished this game several times, but not the Steam-Version. I also play with the "PlayerKit", and with this modification, the playing time doesn't count, so don't get confused about my ~1 hour of play time. :D

This is one of my most favourite games. I started playing this masterpiece around 2004/2005 and I still LOVE it! The Gothic-Series (except Part 3) has been the best RPG series ever existed. I also played Skyrim for around 300 hours (~100 with the account of my brother), I loved it, but the atmosphere and the fighting system isn't even near as good as in G1 and G2.

+ Story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
+ FIghting system
+ Athmosphere
+ Character identification
+ Cool armor, cool weapons (altough there could be more)
+ Cool Fractions!

- Not Designed for windows 7/8, I had some work to do to get it running (Nr.1: Delete the "Read-Only" parameter in the folderoptions of "SteamLibrary").
- The graphics are really bad, but this doesn't matter for me (and there'd be some texturepacks out there!)
- The fighting isn't as smooth as in gothic 2

Alright... just played through Gothic 1 and got some impressions...
It should be mentioned that this piece is over a dozen of years old and for me it's a game of my childhood. I couldn't beat it back then and after many years I bought it again to fulfill this part of my childhood. It was quiet different than I remembered, to be honest.

I had some complications on getting this game to start, as it crashed whenever I tried to start a new game. A short problem, as there are many solutions when you google it.
A bit annoyed but excited I started the game and met the first enemy: the controls! I was so confused that I had to switch back to google and get some explanation. But I don't consider this as a bad point, because the controls may be hard to learn, but easy to master. After an hour of active gameplay it already felt very natural to me and picking up items wasn't difficult anymore.
There are some possibilities to build your character. You can pump your guy to a musclular sausage and focus on strengh, or pay attention to dexterity and use a bow instead. You don't have to stick to one stat though and combine! Magic is also an option and you can spend your skillpoints on max. mana or use better spells (which you can't learn, but buy them as runes).
I've tried everything: Swordfighter, Archer and Mage, and I can tell that the battlesystem in Gothic 1 is terrible and great at the same time. For attacks you focus on one enemy with holding your click. With ranged attacks, such as arrows and spells, you can only hit the actionkey and let the focus aim. There's practically no skill needed and only stats count. Swordfighting on the other hand is a bit different. You keep your focus on one enemy and hit one of the movementkeys for attacks. What I absolutely like is that it really feels like you use the momentum of your weapon. You can use some little combos and it's satisfying when you hit your target.
But what destroys the satisfaction is that sometimes the enemy won't take damage from hits. As a high level fighter it is possible to brutally let your rage go on a lizard for a minute even though you'd one-hit that thing, just because it doesn't take damage for some reason. I don't know if I just overlook something but it's an issue that's not only ruining the fun for me. It gets really frustrating when you face a horde of enemies and while you beat up one beast for nothing, the rest of the crew chews you for breakfast.
But besides the battlesystem, Gothic gives a good first impression when it comes to atmophere. You start with empty pockets and the weakest stats possible. Even the easiest creatures are dangerous and you pick up everything you can, even unuseful garbage. Being on the lowest part of the foodchain, you try to gain some experience to have at least a chance to survive in a fight and you have nothing more than a rusty axe. Without armor it doesn't take much to fall unconcious. So what do you do? You increase your strengh, surprise someone with better weapons with some kisses from your axe and drain his inventory empty. After that, you knock someone else out who has a better weapon whan you and so on and so on... You climb from the bottom to the top and when you joined one of the three camps and get better armor, you can fight like a real man!
But there's an enemy you can't fight with weapons... We call them bugs, and they are present in Gothic! Jammed winches are famous here and you should be happy when a gate opens on action! I counted! In my playthrough I had to pass 6 gates which you have to open via winch and 2 'were jammed' for unexplainable reasons. It's a common thing in Gothic 1 and the forums are full of this problems. The game would be unbeatable when you're stuck in that way, but luckily they included cheats in form of "Marvin-Mode" which lets you teleport to certain waypoints. Probably this Marvin-Mode was made for such situations, but it's annoying anyway when you have to tap out and open up the webbrowser. Oh, and the game doesn't like it when it doesn't have your full attention. You have a 50:50 chance for a crash after tapping out. But even mid-game crashes happen, so save your game every 5 minutes! In my lategame I encountered a crash because a soundfile was absent. It's awfully frustrating and a big minus for the game.
An aspect I enjoyed in Gothic was the simplicity. The HUD consists of only a healthbar and sometimes your mana. There's no questionmarker, read/listen what your NPC has to say, damnit! No minimap in the corner or experiencebar. No textfield which constantly tells you obvious things like "You obtained a Rusty Sword (1)!" and the hotbar for weapons and spells is also hidden. Only the things that are needed right now is on the screen and you have your whole screen to look around the world. Normally you don't have more than 3 quests and because there's no questmarker to hold your hand, you have to think a little bit. I only got stuck because of bugs and I never had the urge to put myself into shame and dig up a walkthrough.

Those crashes, bugs, strange battlesystem and sometimes stupid AI give me a bad view of this game, but it also has a lot of enjoyable things! If I could, I would put Gothic right inbetween good and evil, but because I can't do that I have to choose either "Thumps Up" or "Thumbs Down". And hey, I played many hours, so I had to be somehow entertained. Give this old piece of art a chance!
