Arx Fatalis, the perfect RPG for your netbook
Here is another awesome example of a game that feels like it was tailor made for the Acer Aspire One netbook. Arx Fatalis, a first-person RPG, very similar to the Elder Scrolls series, it was supposedly intended to be Ultima Underworld III, but Arkane Studios couldn't license the name.
Arx Fatalis was released for the PC back in late-2002, and then later on the X-Box. It was quite well received at the time and still has a fan following.
As I didn't have the CD for this game, I purchased the game via download for $4.95 from Direct2Drive. At that price, there is really no excuse not to have this game on your netbook, especially if you're an RPG fan.
Another kick-ass aspect of this game is it's native 1024x600 support (as shown in picture #6 below), and it actually looks & runs great on the Aspire One with antialiasing on and the settings up. You can see this in the gameplay video. I ran a FRAPs benchmark during a 5 minute period of game-play and averaged 31 frames per second.
This is a must-have fun RPG game, and it looks and runs great @ 1024x600 on the AAO, so if you enjoy role-playing games and want a time-killer for short money, I'd highly recommend picking this one up.
