Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
One of my all-time favorites. I still get into discussions (and arguments) with people about this. Great music for it's time (and instrumentals make it great even now!), great story line and real life influence (anyone catch that Magus is a lot like the founder of Islam?), characters were fantastic, and... just an overall great game. My kids WILL play this as their first RPG as well.
