When it's 75% off on Steam, please let me know. In the meantime I picked this up earlier this year for $20.

This is probably a word to the wise, and I don't think even applies to the original BG1, anyway...but just in case you aren't aware of it--as I wasn't initially--when Amazon game descriptions say "Win7 compatible" in the description, what they are usually always talking about with much older games is "Win 7 x86" compatible, because these are 16-bit Windows games that will run fine on Win7 x86 but *won't run at all--won't even install* on Win7 x64 systems.

All eight games run flawlessly on my installation of Windows 7 64-bit.

EDIT: Just for clarification: They INSTALL and RUN flawlessly on Win 7 64-bit. No need for compatibility modes or anything else to install or run them.
