Baldur's Gate 2

A blast so far. Skipped the 1st one because no time. I chose to pick this up because it always comes up in 'best dialogue' and 'best RPG' discussions. Quests are adventurous with many creative dialogue lines. Combat is tough at times so thank RPGesus for quick save and quick load.

To be honest I would be playing Planescape Torment instead but it's not on Steam and I was too lazy to make a GoG account. Soon after purchasing BG2 I briefly researched the best quotes on each game and Planescape's offerings trump BG2's. After I finish this game I may have to make that GoG account after all. When a game has lines this how can you not want to play it?


At least BG 2 is a game and not a book that's pretending to be a game

Anyone know any good (preferably cheap/indie/...) co-op games for 3 to 4 people? Just finished the Trine trilogy with some friends and I love playing those kind of games.


An obvious choice is Don't Starve Together. However that game is basically never ending so might not be what you're looking for.

Your pathetic magics are useless. LET THIS END!

Sorry, had to chime in with one of my fave Irenicus quotes. Used that far too often in P-N-P sessions. BG2 is still one of my absolute faves.


I love his voice.

Yeah David Warner is great. He's in a few of my favourite films, Time Bandits and Tron in particular, and probably the reason I persisted with BG2 through its janky combat.

Yeah, preferably a game with a story that has a beginning and end. (Middle isn't necessary)

Just finished SOMA. What a truly amazing game. Top 3 horror games of all time for me.

Been playing Bravely Default for a bit. I'm really liking it but I think the dungeons are where this game is going to fall. So far they've all been very similar in structure and look. Once again it pales in comparison to the handcrafted unique areas of Final Fantasy 7, 8 and 9.

Most of them were real nuisances I find. Anxiousness immediately turned to annoyance. Hesitantly exploring ruins sabotaged by stupid enemies that you can't look at or be near. Also the distortion affect that you get when looking at them is honestly the most bone headed affect I've ever come across. I think you can disable it but I didn't know that at the time and it riled me up so much I don't even care that i'm getting properly mad just thinking about something that can probably be disabled with one click

I found them genuinely creepy and original...but fairly easy.

Anyway, great game - right up there with Silent Hill 2 and Condemned.
