I prefered the BG series...maybe because I prefer fantasy over sci-fi/post-apocalyptic settings for CRPGs.

I also liked being able to control the NPCs in combat - I got sick of Ian emptying clip after clip into my back.

Also I found the "adult language" taunts of FO dare I say, a little immature? Granted you could turn it off but it didn't add much to the game IMO...unlike bloody mess. :p

Although both games are great, and often replayed, the Fallout series is no doubt my favorite.

imo, fallout gave you much more replay value. it could be just me, but bg didnt really allow for different plays since it seemed to be the basic same story and quests each time.

of course i only played it once so dont mind me for those who worship bg. :ph34r:

I'll say Baldur's Gate, because I loved it (still do, though haven't played it for a while -- perhaps should fish it out again...)

I shouldn't really be saying anything in this thread though because I've never played Fallout :-" Not very attracted to the setting and unconvinced by the rabid fanboys' ravings :o :D so never gotten around to it...

Especially liked all the areas of wilderness to explore in BG1. Perhaps partly because so few CRPGs give you freedom and the unknown in that sort of way (apart from BG1, only the Elder Scrolls series I think)...

I love both.
However, FO2 killed FO for me unlike BG which I still play once in a while despite liking BG2 better. That being said Fallout's humor and setting is way better than BG's.

Torment is better than both though.

Fallout forever...


Maybe you'll think of me when you are all alone
Maybe the one who is waiting for you
Will prove untrue, then what will you do?

Maybe you'll sit and sigh, wishing that I were near
Then maybe you'll ask me to come back again
And maybe I'll say "Maybe"

When I bought my first computer, I told my wife I needed it for work and to manage our finances. This was a shameful and bold face lie. I bought my first computer simply and solely to play Baldur's Gate.

Later I played Fallout but it, and no other game since, has brought back the fun I had playing Baldur’s Gate.

Baldur's Gate! Baldur's Gate! Baldur's Gate!

How can we ever forget Minsc, Jaheira, Imoen, Sarevok, and Bhaal? C'mon, it had a great story, great characters, great play... Fallout was good, but not that good.

Well, technically FOT isn't a RPG. Its only resemblance to 1&2 is the setting. I enjoyed FOT quite a lot but still I don't compare it to FO and FO2... they are different genres.

Anyway, can you become a pr0n star in BG?

'Nuff said. :cool:

I consider BG to be a much more memorable series, so I'd go for BG.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



Minsc.- too crazy
Jaheira.- too annoying
Imoen.- She was my little baby :-"
Sarevok.- he was a bastard, but was our bastard :)
Bhaal.- too many problems for him

And how can you forget Viconia? :wub:

Both are great series, but I choose the BG series as I’m more a d&d geek. Hence I played them a lot more than I did the fallouts, so they get the nod.

i remember playing the fallout junktown demo on my PC gamer disc ( i still have it somewhere :D ) where i later learned u could finish it in a few ways.. but i just went ahead and killed them all... so much fun it was great ! i had made the peasants day hehe... one gay thing tho... i thought i had to do the same thing in junktown in the real FO ... haha how wrong was i.. replayed it and it slowly became the best game i ever played soooo

Fallout > Fallout 2 > Baldurs Gate 2 > Baldurs Gate.. you know its sounds right... ( because it is (w00t) )
