am genuine surprised that Gromnir has not purchased the iwd ee.  to us, iwd were more fun than bg... better looking and sounding too.  am unsure why we didn't pull the trigger on iwd ee.  

 

that being said, we woulda' paid $100 per game if the ie ee games utilized iwd2's d20(ish) rules.  we played d&d as far back as the white-box edition, but am admitting we were never a genuine fan o' the ad&d system, particularly 2.0.  3.5 edition, sans all the splat books, were our favorite d&d incarnation.  

 

HA! Good Fun!

Havnt yet. I played BG2 so many times I cant bring myself to play it anymore.

 

Icewind I never finished because it felt like it was missing too much. No kits would be the main thing that turned me off I think. Character creation and advancment is very important to me. After BG2 spoiled me I couldnt get into Icewind because it felt too dated.

Heya,

 

Of course. If it's been a while, and you're wanting more, there's some long games to get into.

 

Baldur's Gate + Tales of the Sword Coast

Baldur's Gate II + Throne of Bhaal

Icewind Dale + Heart of Winter

Icewind Dale II

Planescape Torment

Neverwinter Nights +  7 Expansions & User Created Content (huge)

Neverwinter Nights 2 + 3 Expansions

 

Soon, Sword Coast Legends... very exciting!

And of course, soon, Expansion to POE.

 

Personally I thought Icewind Dale series was just awesome fun for a single player, followed by the original Neverwinter Nights out of this grouping (great solo or with friends). Torment is one I've yet to complete (single player), really deep and interesting game (super interesting), but I just never finished it for some reason? I guess I should!

 

I played through the whole Baldur's Gate series with a friend via lan back in the day, and we had a long week of non-stop gaming, so good, so good.

 

Very best,

I personally didn't like IWD much at all; I focus very much on characters, plot, story, etc. and for me IWD was basically pointless. It wasn't bad for what it was, just that I very clearly wasn't the target audience. BGII and Planescape: Torment are where it's at for me, but I was plying BGII EE in the weeks leading up to PoE's release. So I'm good on that.

Funny, I always thought I was the only one who prefered the IWD-Games over BG. Besides the ridiculous writing, the bland story  and the puppet-companions, IWD captured the feeling of oldschool dungeoneering far better than BG. I have fond memories of slaughtering my way through all 5 levels of the Dragon's Eye or the purge of the Severed Hand. Ah, the bloodshed.

Since I'd have to be willing to shell out twice the GoG price of BG1 and 2 for Beamdog's crappy additions and horrible UI changes to own BGEE, I can say pretty definitely that I didn't reinstall it.

 

I did, however, play Tutu again back when PoE was first released.

If I'm typing in red, it means I'm being sarcastic. But not this time.

Dark green, on the other hand, is for jokes and irony in general.

4th edition never interested me - people said it was influenced by MMORPGs like World of Warcraft, and started using terms like 'Tank' and 'Glass Cannon' and I switched off.

 

5th edition is back to the roots to some extent, but with many inconsistencies ironed out. I recommend you give it a look! The books are beautifully done, for a start.

   I think a lot of it is well my age....i was 18 - 19 back when me.my brother,my brother's friend and ex wife played 2nd edition like everyday for hours on end....then with the computer coming out to me it killed the DM now i dont need a Dm and can play all by myself whenever i want to....but man back in the day AD&D was a big part of our lives and budget...have a lot of good memories bout it.

   So i just try to get the D&D type games and just game on.

I replayed the BG trilogy and finished about two weeks before PE was released.  It did not diminish my desire to play PE at all, and I have 160 hours in it now.  PE made several real gameplay improvements over the Infinity Engine that I appreciate.  My biggest issue right now is that I want more content.

4E is beautifully suited to CRPGs because it requires a lot of math, positioning, and visual set up.  It does play like a cross between DnD and a minifig game, but it is nothing like MMOs.  People call it an MMO because they noticed the paradigm that already existed and gave it a name, but really they're mad because of they finally started taking steps to limit the poisonous "casters do everything" problem D&D had.  Also the books are long, so half the players didn't read the rituals section.  

 

That said, I'm enjoying d6 space right now more than I ever enjoyed d&d 3 or 4.

I seem to be one of the few that truly appreciate BGEE and BG2EE. I started a "saga run" in which I would take the same main character (multi-class elf - Fighter/Mage dual wielding long swords and katanas) through all of the titles and expansions. I got to Baldur's Gate city when PoE was released, so I never had the chance to finish.

 

To answer your question, I am very much enjoying PoE and look forward to returning to the BG, NWN and perhaps the IWD series afterwards. Very good games that still stand strong today.
