Hokus Pokus MAGIC
I never watched Harry Potter movies,so last week sis and me decided to give them a go and right now we watched already four movies. This gave me urge to play something with magic,so any good games where you can play fun magician ?... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.

Magicka, if you have friends.
Arx Fatalis (I think the sourceport you should use is Arx Libertalis) is a bit finicky but has a VERY satisfying magic system. Basically you use glyphs/runes to cast spells. A sequence of glyphs corresponds to a spell, and you can pre-cast up to three spells outside of combat. So simple fights are pretty trivial (just fire off a pre-cast magic missile), but the larger fights end up being tense and fun as you have to find enough of a chance to rest and cast a spell while staying calm enough to not bugger up said spells.
Grimrock has a similar spell system, but I found it more tedious than fun.
The early Wizardry games (I don't think it continued past 4 or 5) actually made you type the spells, which were nifty. Just bear in mind those games are pure hell and are only fun to a small, mentally deranged, subset of the gaming population (I like them :p).Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Thanks for suggestions. Would try mage in Skyrim but i already played to much of that game so its kinda hard to get back in to the game. Are there any other RPG games with good magicians/mages ?... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.

Magi is fun (& it has a nice demo).
Also I never played it but I hear good thing about Lego Harry Potter? =P

The first thing that springs to mind was this RPS article about Magical Diary.
On another note, the RPS search function really sucks. Searching for "Magic School" basically brings up a random selection of all published articles, sorted chronologically, which is absolutely useless.

Kingdoms of Amalur is generic as hell but the magic users are pretty sweet and actually get to do some melee-based combat as well.
Diablo III is a blast (at least on console) if you want more of a Gauntlet-type experience.
Also for consoles (well, PS3 at least) is Ni No Kuni, a JRPG where you play as a wizard. It even has a 400-page in-game magic book!
EDIT: If you want strategy, Warlock and Fallen Enchantress (which I'll admit is a mixed bag) are good options.
