Of course you have to! It is inconceivable to play a game without all the little add-ons even if the original is complete in and of itself!! We were all forced to pay for the horse armor for Oblivion!!!

(Or so you would believe from people who post here. Sheesh.)

Depends on the content, but i'd say yes. Baldur's Gate 2 has seen lots of quest and npc mods over the years and most of them were absolute garbage as far as writing goes. PST not so much. Perhaps the setting is just too weird for your average IE modder, and that keeps the worst fanfic away. Also, the core writing of the game is a lot more compact than in any other IE games and i don't really see ANY extra content working very well. Tweaking encounters and game mechanics a bit i could forgive on the other hand.

More content for BG1-2 sounds good to me. Not sure about PST though. I think the writing style, current characters and so on is rather unique, so it would be very hard to add anything to it and still get it right.

Because BG series + other IE games are far more superior than any of these craps called "modern games".

Like someone pointed out, you can choose to install mods/DLCs. I know there are lots of rubbish mods out there, but there are also heaps of good ones too for BG2! Some mods, I can't play without :X

Well that's a matter of opinion. Even the best games can be boring on a second runthrough.
