I took everyones great suggestions and looked at all the games recommended for beginners. OMG...there are so many awesome games out there I could be here forever and never finish half the ones that caught my eye. Anyway I've narrowed the list down to a few that I think I would enjoy. Just wanted to know if anyone had some final thoughts before I go ahead and dig in.
King's Quest: A Knight to Remember
Final Fantasy VII
Quest For Glory
So many, many more I liked but definitely need to get my feet wet first.
