[Old lady voice] What can change the nature of an RPG-pole? [/Old lady voice]

Er.. go Torment.

Actualy, Icewind Dale(2) and Baldur's Gate(2) both made allusions to Planescape: Torment. In both games there was some seer or somesuch who, if listing their visions, would mention a something in the Planescape: Torment game.. like the 'black-brambled garden'.

Baldur's Gate is a classic game. No game will beat BG. :wink:

Ultima III is and always will be the best game on my list. Spent the better part of the summer glued to my C64. lets hear it for those of you who remember games without graphics zork 1 was truly a labor of love. does anyone remember floyd "does this mean we are going to do something stupid now" from planetfall.

Although I loved Planescape: Torment - it was awesome - my fav has to be BG. The character interaction was brilliant, and I think Bioware did themselves proud.

Me and a friend played Baldur's gate 1 and the expansion through with the same characters in LAN. First multiplayer RPG experience for me, and a great one too. I miss that character...

I own Torment and have played it but there's something about the baldurs gate series that in my mind sets it apart from the others.

Torment, Torment, Torment

Bah! Noobs.

Gold Box all the way baby! 8)

There was nothing like Pool of Radiance at the time. The gold box series also had Forgotten Relams Unlimited Adventures - a toolset that allowed players to create their own worlds - and the original Neverwinter Nights (online.) Sound familiar?

Ultima was the best non-D&D computer RPG series IMHO. Ultima III was an awesome experience! Deus Ex deserves an honorable mention because you actually had gameplay choices that made a difference in how you played the game. Loved that game.

Final Fantasy was a groundbreaking console RPG. Final Fantasy II (IV in Japan) was best as it was the first console RPG to introduce a real story (as opposed to a plot as just a reason to adventure and level.)

I can't believe Gold Box isn't on the list...

Wow, I thought I was the only one who actually played that game! Rock!

I agree. Torment was awesome, but since this is a "series" poll, I think the combined might of Ultima 7 (all four of them :shock: ), and Ultima 3 and 4 have to come first.

The Baldurs Gate series are the best, exept for nwn ofcourse.
Baldurs gate got me started with D&D games :D .

But I don't see how FF fits in the D&D discription. FF is a good RPG, got 2 games of the series ( not much, I know :oops: )

Morrowind was pretty impressive but like its predecessors it seemed quite empty and shallow.
