Playing morrowind and baldurs gate 2 because new games suck

bobm111bobm111 RobertsforsPosts: 153Member

To be honest im having more fun playing these old but very good games mainly because the last few years  the industry is more about money and rushing stuff out rather then games for gamers.

Beyond that free to play which hardly is free is a road gamers dont really want to go down. Im not only having more fun but these old games beat the new by light years unless you talk about flashy graphics and voice offers.

Even thought about returning to Vanguard however the company running it unfortunately has stream lined that taking many starting areas out and making the first 20 levels free to play. Although even thou the company has done everything in its power to screw up this great game it still beats all being run out these days

my 2 cents

    I have Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 on disk...but I'm waiting to get the GOG versions (no money right now), since they are tweaked to work on modern systems and have more stuff in them.

     

    Icewind Dale 1 and 2 are on GOG too, and I never played through those.

     

    Also a game I've watched a few Let's Plays of called Darklands on GOG...an oldy, but looks like a lot of fun.

     

    All those are on sale and I can't afford a penny :( but ah well. I asked for some gift cards for christmas, so hopefully I can buy them. Probably won't be as cheap though as they are now. Still, gift cards are like free money :P

    Baldur's Gate 2 on the iPad is awesome. I may never sit down at my computer again.

    Optional PvP = No PvP

    It is sad when the quality of mmorpgs is so bad that you end up playing 12 year old games out of self defense. hell sometimes I fire up Fable or NWN1.

    Truth be told I've actually had a couple of weeks now when I've played old games and came to the realization that whilst many ideas behind them are great, they ultimatly suck. Take BG2 for instance, I can't even fucking play that game in my own pace every fucking companion is timed and if you don't help them they'll leave you. Sorry but I want enjoyment out of my games not a fucking headache. Getting to know some of those old games is equivalent to fucking rocket science at times.

    Whenever Baldurs Gate comes up I always hear challenge but all I see are a bunch of fucking dice rolls going to hell, that's tedious not challenging.

    You should look more carefully because it is.

    I'm feeling you OP, even tho I'm still enjoying GW2 and don't intend to stop, Baldur's Gate 2 is such an awesome game and wayyyy better then today's games. I've always preferred the old games since they were so great in so many ways. The past 10 years have been filled with crappy games in every single genre. It's becoming more and more hard to get a single decent title, at least for me and especially in MMO. Back when games were good, we had a bunch of decent/pretty good games every years. Now, I find it hard to find a single decent title each year. It took me years to really play a new MMO since everything was so bad. So I was replaying some old games such as Baldur's Gate, NWN, the Elder's Scroll games when I wasn't playing an RTS or FPS. God I miss those days...

    Morrowind is my favorite game of all time. You can get the graphics enhanced with mods and play through again, you haven't for a while. 

     

    I'm on Civ 5 right now, but still have Morrowind ready to go, maybe after the holidays.

    When you think about it, most MMO's are working the same way lol. A roll dice like that will say how much dmg you will do, if you crit or not, if the other guy will dodge/block or not etc. It's just not shown and working exactly like D&D style but you get the idea. That's what was fun about those games, they were challenging, you had to be careful, plan your strategy carefully with all your characters, position properly everyone etc. It wasn't a game made to pickup, have fun and leave it.

    Baldurs Gate Enhanced Edition is available for ipad as well as PC.

    Baldurs Gate 2 Enhanced Edition doesn't even exist. 

    Have we confused the two?
