Considering I've been playing it for almost ten years now, I'm going to have to go with Black Isle for Fallout 1/2. They are literally my favorite games of all time.

I guess next in this list is Mass Effect (loved the story). I guess in terms of actual Forgotten Realms though, I'd have to go with NWN1. I never did get into Baldur's Gate much, but it's still a good game (I'd kill for The Bhaal Series of novels).

Oddly, I've NEVER played Planescape. I really need to get it.

Also played the first KOTOR, but only once through as the light side.

Earlie Cuyler: uh-uh, uh-uh, No they square like a magazine.
Sheriff: Books Earlie.

my vote is for baldurs gate. it was hard to decide between baldurs gate and fallout. i love them both so much. but baldurs gate is a forgotten realms based game and it was amazing from start to finish. ive played it thru to the end at least 20 or 30 timesincluding bg2 and icewind dale.

awwwwww. It's too hard. I like them all. Well...all of them except for Neverwinter Nigths 1 (and 2 but it was a bit of an improvement). Eeni meeni miini moh...I'm going to have to go with Fallout 1 and 2. No, change that to Baldur's Gate. No wait! Planescape! Ok, I think I'll just not vote.

From that list, I've only played the BG, IWD, and NWN series. So I had to vote Baldur's Gate.

I have played several MMOs, but I'd still vote BG higher than any MMO that I've played. BG had real flair, something truly special.

4E Realms was awful, but it's water under the Boareskyr Bridge. Let's make 5E Realms truly shine!

No. Fallout 3 was a Bethesda game but New Vegas was Obsidian.

I can't believe Jade Empire has no votes (then again, I didn't vote for it). Has anyone besides me played it?

Really?

Looks like Bethesda works with a bunch of sister companies to produce some games

-Of those listed, Fallout 3: New Vegas. By far. Knights of the Old Republic places in second, and Knights of the Old Republic II wraps up the bunch in a distant third.

Baldur“s Gate and Icewind dale 1 and 2 are classics.They have inspired a lot of other games. The fact that they are going to release and enhanced version of Baldur“s Gate proves the game“s influence. To me, Icewind 2 have the greatest soundtrack of all games!

I agree Gavinho. I played Baldurs Gate 1 and 2 quite a bit. But I loved the two Icewind Dale games. Reinforcing the barricades, repairing the walls, and slaying the orcs and goblins breaking through was just so awesome.

That was a HIGHLY difficult vote, but I had to go with my original love: Baldur's Gate. So much history and nostalgia surround that game.

Not to mention Elminster graced his presence in the first Baldur's Gate game, and that was wonderful for me!

Baldur's Gate 2 with expansion has my vote.

The Fallout titles are great for their humor.
Jade Empire is alright, it is not what you usually expect from a fantasy RPG but it is alright.
Planescape:Torment is a gem and should be played atleast once.
NWN 1 and 2 are ok, though the plot of 2“s main game was predictable for me.
Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2 are decent though KOTOR2 on the Dark Side is great fun.
Icewind Dale 1 and 2 are hack&slay, inferior to the BG series but 2 i do consider better than 1.
Mass Effect 1 and 2 are good games, 2 even better than 1, just don“t mix them with 3, it is less good.
Dragon Age Origins is a great game, very true to sword and sorcery heritage, 2 was less overwhelming and forshadowed somehow the demise of Mass Effect 3.

Yes, Baldur's Gate gets the prize as BG2 with Throne of Bhaal deliver great atmosphere within the world of the Forgotten Realms.

The driving force in the multiverse is evil, for it forces good to act.
