We all have read a book and thought "Man this would make a great video game!" And most video game developers would agree with you too!

Unfortunately, I spent all of 5 mins ruffling through the shelves looking for potions and the differently colored scrolls or books that I knew were quest items. To me, I felt really bad for the devs who spent time coding in those books and writing in those beautifully written texts. I wonder how m
I was wondering if flavor text is important to anyone else (lore books go along with this). What I mean is how magical items in games like Baldur's Gate and NWN have a sort of history if you right click and examine them. I loved getting a fantastic weapon and reading about it's history and learning how it ended up in my hands. It made the loot that much more interesting. This could remain in the form of examining the loot, or collecting and reading books. Or they could implement a codex feature popular in many recent games. What do you guys think? Are lore books and especially item hi
