I won't stretch to compare Geneforge to BG. But graphics aside, the Geneforge series has much more RPG than IWD - specifically factions, choice and consequences. The also have very compelling stories. They have a sameness across the titles and I admittedly struggled with 2 and 3 but 4 is a real gem. If you play one Vogel game have it be Geneforge 4. Them "looking like ass" is a catch 22 because the newer engine titles look better but are dumbed down in the combat mechanics - particularly your tactical initiative.
I might of learned to appreciate Fallout 1 if it didn't have an active overland map. It kills any sense of exploration. ToEE got away with it because there was only one main location. Dragon Age… inexcusable.
