I was just going to add Redemption, which came out in 1999 and was my first experience with VtM period. In fact after learning to play the game I found myself reading the black thick handbook with the silver ankh on the cover and it inspired me to learn more about VtM lore. Ever since Redemption I've been hooked on VtM.
Another fun game back in the day was Blood Omen: The Legacy of Kain, which was one of the first games I ever played that you got to be THE Vampire, isntead of being the victim. You played Kain and you were bad, it was alot like Zelda type graphics, which then spawned the Soul Reaver games. Then they came out with a Blood Omen 2, which was cool, but didn't have that Zelda free to walk around feel.
