I played through IWD1 at the higher difficulties, and tactics mostly revolved around kiting, choke points, web and other debuffs, and fireballing (or other AOE spells) against immobilised enemies….

The obvious choices were:

Baldurs Gate
Fallout 1 & 2
Darklands
Torment

Then I added both Ultima Underworlds (it is odd to see the second one rated lower, it is a significantly better game)

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:-)

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

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.

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