The single greatest game ever published, to be exact. Went through that bitch 8 times and thinking of acing it once more soon.


Relax a sec big guy!. Even tho it had it's moments (the haunted house scene), overall it was a great idea executed poorly. First game to license the HL2 engine, it was broke as hell and the developers didn't do shit to fix it. The game lives on because of the community and modders.

Hogwash, I say! The haunted hotel was just one of the few dozen brilliant moments. Yes, it is broken, but one patch fixes the majority of the problems. Is downloading one patch too hard? I think not. The developers couldn't have done much due to the lack of funds: the game wasn't selling too well.

As for the "poorly executed" part, well yea, the combat could have been slightly better and the game could have been somewhat longer and more difficult. That's it, everything else is perfect for me.

And since you've mentioned mods, the lack of quality content (that I know of) is disturbing. There is a huuuuge mod called "Antitribu" that's supposed to be out in a few months, that one looks like it will be a wet dream come true.

If anyone is considering getting the HD Silent Hill Collection for PS3 or 360, go for it. It's cheap and the new voices are excellent. I'm running through Silent Hill 2 for the first time. Pyramid Head is horrifying.

It is simply amazing how horrifying that game still is.

I started playing Uncharted 3...so far awesome! I'm also playing Mass Effect 3 multiplayer...which is suprisingly addicting! The single player was amazing imo despite the lackluster ending (the ending isn't bad, just lacks the closure).

Good times, indeed. I don't know it the same happened in the US too but in France and maybe in Europe, only a few arcade gaming centers remain.

To own the then ultra expensive Neo Geo console is a very big thing for me, the guys really made my 30th year worth it

So finally quit WOW. have beaten Mass Effect 3 a couple times, going on third now so running out of options to try there.

my pc HATES the never winter nights i picked up recently, won't render skin.

waiting for Guild Wars to come out as a DAOC/WOW buddy says it's groovy.


what to do in the mean time?

don't have a super computer, but recently replaced everything with some good parts and rebuilt. hard drive aside, the microsoft evaluation scores most of my shit near max... so can handle about anything. prefer RPG stuff to twich FPS's...

If you get to Neverwinter Nights, you might be better off skipping the original campaign and only care about the expansions, as the original campaign is an unfinished mess and easily the most boring thing ever released by Bioware. Playing it is nothing more than a frustrating waste of time running around doing pointless fed-ex quests while fighting trash mobs using one of the mist awkward pausable real time systems known to man. The expansions are slightly better (especially the second one). There are some solid user made modules however, such as A Dance With Rogues, which is probably the biggest reason to own NWN1.

Also, keep in mind that most of the classes are quite shitty in NWN. Playing as a fighter or a sorcerer is the way to go. Classes like Cleric, Druid or Bard just make you want to smash your computer, as they are completely useless in every single way (the game isn't balanced for them in the slightest). A lot of the skills also don't do jack shit worth worrying about.

Well, other than that and stuff..

Good RPGs you might want to try out (assuming you haven't already):

Fairly recent stuff:

Legend of Grimrock. Old School party based real-time dungeon crawler with lots of puzzles (sort of a modern throwback to stuff like Dungeon Master). Would say it's mindless fun, but it's way too difficult to be mindless. Really good looking graphics. Cheap indie game, but lots of game hours.

Knights of the Chalice. Another recent indie RPG. If you forgive the graphics (it's among the ugliest things ever, seriously) and the sort of weak story it's one of the greatest RPG games released recently. Tactical turn based combat awaits aplenty.

Drakensang games. These are pretty much your average pausable real time RPGs with some amount of party control. They're quite good, and they serve as a better alternative to Dragon Age. Based on The Dark Eye ruleset which is a german pnp system.

NWN2 expansions. Like NWN1, the OC is a bit of a mess here, but the expansions are better. That is, assuming you can get past some of the worst camera controls I've ever encountered in a game.

Geneforge series. A series of 5 really difficult and unforgiving indie RPGs that also happen to be some of the best RPGs ever made. Really non-linear and open (assuming you have places to go to where you won't just die).

You might also want to check out the demo for supposedely coming RPG Age of Decadence, which might have a release date coming up at some point.

Earlier games:

Arcanum. It shipped kind of buggy, but the unofficial patch which can be found by googling sort of fixes the worst problems. One of the main problem is that it's been designed for both turn based and real time combat and neither one really works right. Quest design and setting is excellent and the game is huge.

Wizardry 8. If you like old school party based RPGs, this is among the best. Make sure you download the mod that speeds up enemy animations though or it's gonna move at a crawl.

Just to name some examples. You could also download Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup for free and get irreversibly sucked in like I did

Have fun!

i did play the original NWN and Underdark xp back when they came out. liked it, but nowhere near the quality of Baldur's Gate (played 2 and TOB) - thankfully that is being redone/re-released at some point in the future.

never played NWN2, but the game was already not exactly cutting edge when it came out... less so now.

will take those suggestions into consideration.

what to do in the mean time?

The Witcher 2 would be the obvious choice for the moment. Easy to get into, story driven single player RPG that's worth 2 playthroughs due to a significant difference in a large portion of the game.
