    Baldurs Gate was the game that really got me into PC Gaming. I will keep an eye on this for sure.

    Oh man, Baldurs Gate was the rebirth of RPGs, after they had been said to be dead for many years. I would LOVE to get back to that legacy with new stories.

    games like this should be redefined with better graphics like dungeon keeper and carmageddon oldie games should be enhanced to our new gen.

    Bioware did the first 2 games right, as long as they keep the Dragon age devs away I don´t see any problem with them making the third game as well.

    The dragon age devs are the ones who did Baldur's Gate I believe.  For me, the first BG was amazing. Loved that game. Then it dropped off with BG2. The graphics style had an art to it that was ruined when they went with the graphic engine they had with BG2. DA1 and 2 did not hold me either. I doubt anything made these days will compare to the work of Bethesda. I'm just glad there's one company with their head on straight.

    I thought BG2 was way better than BG1, at least Shadows of Amn.. not the expansion.  That just got really weird.  BG1 and UO were the first RPG and MMORPG that I played.  Best single player story and best MMO I've ever played.  Odd isn't it?

    Bioware has released lots of awwsome rpg games before they sold them self to EA. Im a big fan of their earlyer games but i understand your comment. I feel sorta the same way to day. I believe they still have talents onboard their team but its starting to be more about milking the consumers than creating awwsome game experiences imho.

    I would much rather have a planescape remake, that game blew bg out of the water in many ways. Sadly it is very underappreciated.

  • SkuzSkuz Member UncommonPosts: 1,018

    I liked Baldur's Gate 1. BG2 I thought was good, though it missed*something* from BG1

    But yes, Planescape was a whole other order of awesome on top, I think because whilst it still had a very linear central story you could come at it from several angles & the dialogues were quite inventive & open-ended, also it had thoe most awesome "concept universe" behind it as a backdrop that is almost criminal it wasn't used moreso.

    A remake of Planescape would have me as excited as an all-star quaterback on prom-night, or something like that.

    Unfortunately, remakes tend to get their guts ripped out and replaced with pablum by the developers who are "re-imagining" them.  Look at the recent Jagged Alliance remake and what the future holds for Sindicate and X-Com.  Hell, just look at the entire franchise history of X-Com too see how badly these games miss their mark.

    At this point, every time I hear of a new remake I feel nauseous at the prospect of what fresh humiliation might be visited upon another classic from my youth.  It's like developers today are completely oblivious to what it was that made those games great in the first place.  The reason for that they don't share our history with them and they are only trying to cash in on a name.  Even Firaxis, who I'd expected so much more from, has failed to recognize the legacy that they are now blithely grinding down beneath their jackboots.  It's a disgrace.

    Today, if Dungeon Keep was remade, they'd probably turn it into a f***ing FPS.  That''s how out of touch developers are with the games we still cherish.  Yeah, and it doesn't help that many times, these remakes need to be "tweaked" to allow them to be played on a console.  I think we all have a pretty good idea of what "tweaked" means in these circumstances.

    Some of us place Planescape above all other RPGs of it's day.  It's still the one for which I have the fondest and most vivid memories.  Underappreciated, yes, but not by me.

    Baldur's Gate is a role-playing video game developed by BioWare and released in 1998 by Interplay Entertainment. The game takes place in the Forgotten Realms, a high fantasy campaign setting, using modified Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) 2nd edition rules. The game received critical praise, and was credited (along with Diablo) with revitalizing the CRPG genre.   - Taken from Wikipedia

    It was Black Isle.  Their studios were closed shortly after.
