Well, I DLed a demo version of the Conan game for PC, but all it did was crash at me. :P I decided therefore to grab the X-Box version off of eBay, which cost me £9.99 including postage (or ~$19.50 US). We'll see if it's any good; in the meantime, I've got no outlet for my desire to crush my enemies, drive them before me, and hear the lamentations of their women.


The closest thing I've got is various D&D computer games, which don't quite have that engaging feel. I don't want to sit back and watch my character chopping up monsters (a la Icewind Dale or Neverwinter Nights), I want to be mashing buttons and jumping all around the terrain (a la Tomb Raider).

I suppose I could carve foes up with my lightsaber in Jedi Knight ... but that's aliens and deckplates rather than swords and sorcery.

Woe, to be a picky gamer!

PS: What I really want is for somebody to run this. Although I'd happily play a D&D barbarian too.
