I can definitely agree with those that say that save anywhere impacts design, but to me the user friendliness overrides that.

I want to be able to leave the game on short notice and pick up where…

In that case I'll wait for the likes of the 760 to come down in price a bit. 200 euros is more than I'm prepared to pay for a graphics card:-)

Seems like it's finally time to upgrade my PC. It has served me for 4 years which is acceptable.

My only beef with BG1 was the boring character customisation (only fixed in IWD2) and some interface issues (fixed in BG2).

I've finally gotten around to playing Drakensang: The River of Time.

I found that the main issue with the city was the isometric perspective and a lack of highlighting in vanilla BG. Doors being "hidden" by buildings was incredibly annoying.

I tend to dislike any teenage girl thief, making the tentacled thief of Kotor the most annyoing companion as far as I'm concerned. EDIT: IIRC her name was Mission Vao. I dislike the BG1 Imoen for the…

There's no reason to reroll except for the (insignificant) starting cash. You get the option to edit your characters after rolling them.

I found that the skill trees were improved (hard to do worse than in DAO) and I actually preferred the pace of the combat of the sequel.

It's pretty obvious that the games play fast and loose with the age of the characters. Dandelion is in his fourties in the books IIRC. At the same time Adda and Radovid are minors.

Did you complain about lightsabers in KotoR as well? ;)

Games are different and cater to different tastes. The Witcher games are not about equipment, just as the TES games arent about writing.

The risk is very real.

I'd expect people to buy one game upon release, and then buy the other once they finished game number one, possibly even waiting for a price drop (which comes sooner…

Space 1889. The premise is interesting, but by the time I got to play it the game was too dated to be playable.

Gothic 2 is still bloody excellent (it'd probably tie for spot 11 with Baldurs Gate 2), just not quite in my top ten as far as enjoyment goes.

Largely balancing of NotR made the late game a chore,…
