I tried to play them but lost interest quickly, don't think I ever got off the first CD. I hated having to baby-sit everyone's gear/inventory/skills/stats/combat-moves ect and felt that kinda ruined the immersion of the story/world. Too many numbers and stats and micro fiddling thrown in my face when really the story should have been put first.
Then again I've always through that D&D was rather flawed. Too much crap bogging down the actual adventuring and role playing. I seem to recall spending most of my tabletop D&D sessions trying to avoid any and all combat because it was so damn slow and boring. I'd have hoped with a computer that wouldn't have been necessary, alas so many people seem to think the numbers are the good parts of RPGs.
I think I'm in a vast minority though, people seem to love stats and numbers, perhaps there's a little accountant in your heart or hearts, but the poet in mine is weeping.
