Tunnels and Trolls is a cut above most high-profile RPGs because it shines in two of the most important elements of RPG: plot and writing. From the first dozens of introductory screens that outline the backstory onward, the writing captures the true medieval-fantasy spirit. The well-developed storyline and side quests make up for the cumbersome interface and *extremely* frustrating combat where you can't kill certain monsters. Casual gamers need not apply, but die-hard RPGers will likely have a lot of fun with this classic. Best of all, the developers are still selling and supporting the game more than a decade after its release, so go buy it today :)
