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…

Why is it that so many great RPGs have a crappy endgame?

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,…

This. This was also one reason that I enjoyed the Game of Thrones RPG (and old Kotor 2). I'm approaching 40 and it is nice to occasionally play an adult in a game.

2013 was a dull year. I voted XCOM and Conquistador, games which I'd consider having RPG elements at most.

2014 is promising though. The Witcher 3 was an obvious choice, but after that it was hard…
