Yeah, there are several threads already about stretch goals, but there isn't a poll yet.

So we need another useless poll ;)

 

When voting, please assume that we have reached the 2.2 goal. Which means we already have:

5 races

7 classes

8 companions

a larger story and world (region and faction)... whatever this means.

 

 

As you can see the same question is asked twice, with the difference that the first question considers what you see as having the highest priority; while the second allows you to vote on anything you want.

The reason for it was because I suspect the priorities would get too diluted as many people would vote on many things. Let's see if it was worth asking twice or not.

more text and more text and then some

More reactivity. If I do a series of quests aiding the city watch, I want there to be less crime and such at night and more people walking the street. Or of I aid the criminal element I'd like to see more corrupt guards and muggings in broad daylight and such.

 

Or if I clear out some bandit fortress I'd like to see scavengers looting the remains, or settlers moving in or something.

 

Just more ways to show that what we do matters.

First goal should definitely be a toolkit. Modding is awesome and enables the players to make the game their own, which is incredibly important to an active fanbase. Plus, with a good toolkit, we can add in pretty much all of the other things listed if we want to.

 

As for the other options, all are pretty important save for graphics, but top of the list should be choices and consequences, a larger gameworld, and more companions, with text following close behind.


I haven't earned an entertaining and meaningful signature yet. But I will. Oh yes, I will indeed.

I put my priority as reactivity. It is hard for an RPG to have too many choices and consequences.

My secondary choices were larger world, more text and modding toolkit.

 

These 4 things would add the most value, in my opinion. The other stuff is great too, but those are the key components for an RPG to shine.


Grandiose statements, cryptic warnings, blind fanboyisim and an opinion that leaves no room for argument and will never be dissuaded. Welcome to the forums, you'll go far in this place my boy, you'll go far!

Good poll. Hopefully Obsidian will take the results into consideration.

 

My first priority is a larger world with more land, npc's, quests, factions, items, etc.

Replayability, by a large margin. I created a whole topic about this -

http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/60222-missing-stuff-is-great-replayability-and-choice-driven-content/page__view__findpost__p__1191142

 

For wishes, I chose:

 

Larger world and more content, more companions, more races and classes, more replayability, and more and better artwork, though not necessarily in that order. And I think all of those combine to make more replayability, personally.

All of the above from the first row massively interest me so much it was really hard to choose. :(

More text — but mainly dialogues. Lore is fine, but what I want is discussions, arguements and viewpoints. So not "more companions", but "deeper companions", I guess.

As far as i know this is a single player game, I think it would be amazing if you found a way to allow a few friends to join you! Im not saying MMORPG but something that would let 3 or 4 friends join in on your world would be amazing

Interesting poll, I would have thought options 1 / 1 would win by a country mile.

2.2 mil actually already include a new region, a new faction, and a new companion. So location and faction is already covered.

 

Me I voted modding tool. Let the fans help expand the game beyond what Obsidian can do with its given resources and time.

More emotions, more originality, more little details. This is what makes a game not only great but memorable. Hopefully Obsidian folks know this, because players don't.

You forgot Co-Op multiplayer :)

Developer Bobby Null mentioned the possibility of an Adventuring Guild where players can create more characters for a cost (remind me of Final Fantasy Tactics). I am all for that as a stretch goal. I want to be able to create the entire party on certain play throughs.

 

Also, to the poster above, co-op multiplayer seems to me to be silly for this kind of game. The only reason most people used multiplayer in BG2 was to create additional PCs to play the campaign with. They would make a MP game, create the entire party, save and then move the save file from the MP folder to the SP folder.

Modding kits allows for a game to contain its fanbase for far longer times than other games. Think of it as a investment in future releases. Also, more replayability (which also means classes and races though).

Exact same choice.

But I put replayability above by a large margin, however.

Why are there 5 races, 7 classes, 8 companions? The stretch golas added two of each, right? Where there only 3 races, 5 classes and 6 companions? I understood that initially they began with 5 of each. Am I wrong?

I think sound and graphics should already be part of the basic version of the game. A stretch goal for better sound and graphics could be very misleading because people might think that the basic version is not complete in some way.

i dont personally care what stretch goals they add at this point unless its to bring some big name into the team (like justin sweet, or jermy soule)

 

the goals are just there to entice more people to pledge more, but i assume all the extra money they get will go into making the world bigger and more fleshed out without them specifically stating that, and that's what matters to me most
