Excerpt: Mount & Blade (PC) System Requirements PC with 512 MB of RAM Graphics card with at least 64 MB memory Windows 98/2000/ME/XP/Vista 700 MB of hard disk space Role Playing Games are my favorite genre by far. Unfortunately, RPG\'s have long been tainted with magic and occult references, thus making it hard to find a good game to whole heartedly recommend. Mount & Blade is breath of fresh air; it has no magic or religion references in it whatsoever.
