Had the Risen series and ELEX already so it helped me save a few pennies on the Gothic/ArcaniA series so thanks for posting this! Also thank you OP!

Thanks for the remark. Don't know about Risen series, but Arcania is a shitty game, can't recommend it to anyone

It's fine that someone want to write continuation. Story is good enough but the game itself is very low ;)

Arcania 2€, Fall of Setarrif 1.49€, bundle costs 5€.
Subs aren't very beneficial after a point :P

Your second link made me realize I confused Sacred 3's awfulness with Risen 3 for a long while. I kind of hope in a Piranha Bytes franchise bundle, I still miss enough that it could be cheaper than on Steam.

Just ArcaniA's existence is fault, what you expect...

The package has gothic 1-2-3 as well, but it's a sub, so the price does not change, regardless of the number and value of the owned games.

Depends on region, what you have, i got 3 games for 3,30 or something.
Look at here how much apparently it can differ https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/gQHMl/deal-steam-ckiii

Looking at some replies it was beneficial to them, i am just throwing it out there. ;)
Better such bundles exist then some bundles with some games where you just buy the same thing again, or you can't even because you already own something from it.

Sure, but what you linked now is a bundle, where price changes based on what you own.

In your original comment there is a sub (fix price) and one bundle (personalised price). I only quoted the sub url because that's the generally troublesome package, as it's always 5€ in the EU. Still good for people having a single game, or nothing at all.
The second - the bundle one - is a good 1.5€ cheaper than the individual games, that one is nice :P

Gothic 1 might not be best, but I still think it is mandatory entry to the series!

These are actually pretty bad games. They have good worlds and stories, but the gameplay is awful and akin to hitting a wall with a finger. Are there people who played them after 2012 or something, don't have "kid sentiment" and still think these are great?

I played Gothic 2 around 2008-9, it was dated even then and I experienced its flaws thoroughly. Yes, very clunky controls and awkward fight system. Yet I still found it an exceptional RPG experience. These are great games, because their value have nothing to do with their shortcomings. I am sure there are plenty of players who can appreciate them even today, with fresh eyes.

I'm surprised then xD and still feel that the games are very clunky and janky, but you know, you're not wrong for liking them either :D

Aha, I sorta found the controls, a bit fun and once I learnt them along with began to master them...it felt very fun and therapeutic. No clue why, just did. Gothic 2's change threw me off for a bit tbh. ^^;;;;

there's a mouse mod for gothic 1, should make things easier, and the rest pretty much play as these kinda games play. gotta get used to a few quirks because it's piranha bytes.

Looks nice, thanks for the info!
I hope they'll keep these 90% off deals for the future. Maybe I'll pick up ArcaniA sometime, but it's not urgent, considering the other Piranha Bytes games in my backlog.

Imho Gothic 1 still has the superior scenario and atmosphere, but overall Gothic 2 is the better game by far.

Mmhhh, Meatbug with Memberberries... yummie 😊

Apologies about hijacking the topic but I wasn't sure these deserve a separate one:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/555510/MachiaVillain/ - 90% off till tomorrow

https://store.steampowered.com/app/774351/Citystate/ - 85% off till Sept 20th. Has anyone played this one? Seems rather interesting and quite different from other games in the genre with its focus on macro management.

If the older games' graphics are tough to swallow, can'T I just start at Gothic 3?

It would be same as starting ME series by Andromeda or Mafia series by Mafia 3

The Mafia series has continuity between games? I haven't played any that's why I ask, I thought the different entries were just loosely connected.

While they are at 90% discount, it's worth to mention ''The Chronicles Of Myrtana: Archolos'', a mod that is expected to be released this year:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1467450/https://store.steampowered.com/app/1467450/The_Chronicles_Of_Myrtana_Archolos//

A 2002 old game with a 2021 free mod that includes a new story and world, professional voice acting (*at least in Polish), more than 40 hours of expected playtime, etc...
