    My experience with games...that is.

    Absolutely no experience what-so-ever.

    I am extremely embarrassed to ask this question, but will do so anyway...

    Is there a game or free demo I can download to start learning?

    I once downloaded a demo that had a 3D character with a sword who started out in a forest, went to the city and asked questions, picked up hints and then followed through on the answers finding a cavern in a hole, fighting monsters to fulfill the quest.

    I know it sounds like 300 games out there but I was hoping someone remembered the name. It was my type of role-playing game. Is there a similar role playing game I can test out?
    It would have to be very simple to learn, as all I have is a mouse and no joystick.

    Any recommendation and link would be greatly appreciated.
    I have to learn sometime, and now is as good a time as any.

    Some games that I liked with the old nintendo was:
    Genghis Khan
    Link
    Final Fantasy
    and the like...

    I have XP and a nvidia graphic card if that makes any difference.

    Sounds like Diablo or Diablo II, by Blizzard Games. Those are both available as a demo, I do believe. And Diablo is very cheap, probably $5-10 for the full version right now, and still good fun to play.

    The best way to start out is to ask what do you like doing in real life? Sports? Fantasy? RPG? Action? Shoot em ups?

    There is a demo of Never Winter Nights which is the intro level and pretty simple.
