A fun thread, some interesting reading.

Just the mentioning of Ruins of Myth Drannor got me nostalgic enough to track down my old thread when I finally completed the game on the 'Watch.

Unlikely, but we'll see. I have the game in two separate editions already and have played it through at least four times over the years, as it's one of my favourite IE games for its environmental…

I really enjoyed Avernum: Escape from the Pit, which was my first Spiderweb game, so I'm naturally keen to check this one out too. Coming after the two Avadon's, it'll be nice to return to this…

Sadly, that's a very uninspiring and insipid video of game-play. It certainly looks and feels more like Dragon Age 2 than Origins to me as well at this point, albeit just in a bigger world space. Too…

I never found the city particularly confusing; it's relatively simple once you get used to it.

One useful idea for navigating around the city for the first time is to make notes on individual…

No. It's party based top-down isometric at all times. Very tactical turn based combat. Also, for a much more obvious influence on Knights of the Chalice, I'd much recommend playing Dark Sun:…

How's the class balance and difficulty in the second DLC? I've heard several reportages that it tends to favor more melee heavy classes. I've also read criticisms with regards to reusing boss assets…

Naturally, these are more "my favourite" as opposed to "the best", which isn't exactly something quickly measurable.
