    Knights of the Old Republic is an RPG yes, and a very good one IMO. I've never played Neverwinter Nights so I don't know how they compare.

    It's a good game but is heavily unoptimised for Mac OS X.

    While that may be true, it will still run fine on a 2.5GHz MBP. Just make sure you download the UB patch.

    Both KOTOR games are awesome! (Coming from someone who loves Star Wars)

    I would advise you to run it in Windows though, because:

    - KOTOR 1 is incredibly buggy on Intel Macs
    - KOTOR 2 for Mac doesn't exist.

    The UB patch is nice but it's still pretty buggy. Mine crashes quite a bit.

    Other than that, it's a great game.

    KOTOR strikes a really nice balance between an immersive RPG and ease of first time players. I tried Neverwinter Nights and got bored at the Character Selection Screen. Too many options in that IMO :S

    still playing kotor2 and i dont like the story as much as kotor1 so far...

    i have so many "grey" npcs which is not suiting my rp so well

    also the conversation is often strange and less options for a good jedi i think than there was in kotor1

    but i have only played 2 planets so far

    K2 has some deep dialogs, especially with Kreia - I really like it :)

    The game itself has darker feeling than K1, but thats to be expected! It the dark times in the galaxy.

    You have the writers to thank for the awesome story and dialogue - these are Black Isle guys at Obsidian who worked on stuff fro Fallout to Planescape Torment ... less of the "let me give you all my money / will you pay me to help you / I keeeel yoooouuu arrrgh!<attack>" sorts of dialogue.

    If the originator of this thread is all ready set up for Windows, the PC versions of this game will probably be less expensive if purchased new.

    Regarding KOTOR, I was not crazy about having the action stop when combat is initiated and queuing up actions. I much prefer the combat scheme in Mass Effect.
