PrimeJunta Posted January 17, 2015 Author Share Posted January 17, 2015 @danielkx The metagame aspect is IMO true to a significant extent for BG2, and even there it's not so much the battles but which quests to take in which order, and where the really good lewt is found. We've been discussing this a quite a lot in the "Let's play BG2" threads, and I get the impression that metagame knowledge -- learning to play BG 2 by playing it again and again -- is kind of the whole point for many of its most hardcore fans. And no, it's not exactly my thing; I also find my enjoyment level crashing whenever I make a decision based on metagame knowledge, whether it's about quests to do or combat preparations to make.. It is however not true with IWD, for the most part. I did not feel like it was suckerpunching me. I talked to various NPC's and paid attention to what they said, and they did tell you quite enough for you to figure out what to anticipate. What you do have to know though is something about the DnD bestiary. If you have no idea what an umber hulk is, hearing that a mad mage is building an army of them won't help. 1 I have a project. It's a tabletop RPG. It's free. It's a work in progress. Find it here: www.brikoleur.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
