Baldur's Gate TUTU (BG2 engine).
It's a fantastic game still, and I like pretty much everything about it. The only real issue I have is the awful way of looting. There is a TON of crap loot, and you spend way too much time fiddling with how to distribute it, unless you choose to ignore it altogether - which I don't want to. Also, the way ranged combat is handled with arrows being limited by quantity and how fast they're used is a hassle as well.
But beyond that, it's really a great party based CRPG with lots of depth and a decent challenge level. Having the more advanced BG2 scripts available helps a lot in terms of not having to constantly micromanage your characters. Only the thief/stealth aspect represents a problem.
In this modern world of level scaling and linear structures - it's a very refreshing experience to roam around at your own pace, building your party from the ground up until they're pretty bad-ass. I do so miss this aspect in most modern CRPGs
