Either computer RPGs are especially popular in Europe, or North Americans just don't like voting in polls :)

Haha, that was what I was thinking. Perhaps North Americans just aren't geeky enough!

 

Anyway, I'm from Norway.

So.. without IE games there would be no Witcher series or GOG.com.

 

That's just like, your opinion, man.

Not exactly. I'm not sure about GOG, but guys who started CDProjekt said that after experience with publishing games they wanted the studio to move on and make their own games. At first they wanted to do a PC port of Baldur's Gate: Alliance, and when it didn't work out they started the work on a Witcher, who in the first approach was supposed to be a NWN mod. So, in a way, without IE games and Black Isle/Bioware, there wouldn't be a Witcher series.

 

BTW, also Poland here, but southern regions, near neighborhood of Kraków.

Michigan USA :). Either computer RPGs are especially popular in Europe, or North Americans just don't like voting in polls :) Considering that the genre originated here, you'd think we would be represented here more :).

It is kind of ironic. Most of the best wRPGs come from North America, but they seem to be more popular in Europe.... it could also be that PC gaming in general is more popular in Europe.

 

Well, maybe they could also release this game for the xbox with a keyboard+mouse... hmmmm :)

I think there has been a misunderstanding. As his/her profile picture shows the Big Lebowski, I thought of the "opinion" thing to be a suitable quote from the movie. Loved the witcher, love GOG and Poland btw ;-)

Ah, OK then :) Had no idea since I haven't seen the movie, as you can probably tell. Sorry for making you explain otherwise nice reference to some ignorant, it always spoils the fun (at least for me, when I'm in your shoes) ;).

No hard feelings - But to make it up you could give the movie a try ;)
