I love the storyline and I will try again to beat it. I loved being Mazed its so fun unless its your first time. It took me 30 minutes to figure out how to get out there.

Endure, in enduring we grow strong.

Hehe... I like this especially, since, in the RPG itself... being mazed by Her Serenity is not something you are supposed to love .

I find Planescape utterly radical, very refreshing and interesting! But I vote for Baldur's Gate 2. It's still so good and no other D&D game I've ever played comes close. I've replayed and completed it so many times, and it still amazes me.

It's such a terrible waste WoTC doesn't come up with a sequel to Baldur's Gate 2.
And I'm so sick of Neverwinter Nights... I hate 3D.

Same thing here. 3D somehow wasn`t as good as 2D.

2d is better than 3d but I dont know why its just the style. And I find that if the developers don't spend so much time on graphics then then the storyline and gameplay seem to be really good.

Honestly my favorite game has to be Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone. That's not to say I haven't play any of the others listed. I've played the BG series and really enjoyed it. The Icewind Dale games were good as well. I love story first and formost but those games just didn't pull me in the way Demon Stone did. I guess it's due to the cinamatic nature of Demon Stone allowed it to do that. I also thought the story was pretty good as well, fast paced. I just wish it was longer. Wasn't better then the other games but I liked it more then the others.

I have played the single player demo for Dragonshards. Honstly I think it's going to be pretty good. So far I've gotten the feeling that Dragonshards is pretty much what Lords of Everquest, the only Everquest RTS game was trying to be but failed to present itself as. Doubt this might be the case but it's almost like Liquid Entertainment saw Lords of Everquest and just set out to do a far better job and met with great success. I really like the RPG elements during the dungeon crawls and even on the surface map in the demo. Though I have to wait till the game comes out to see how city building really is.

I wish there would be another DnD game with the isometric view though. I miss that about games.

Definately the original for me, an awesome storyline, great NPCs, great locations and generally a great game.

BG2 is almost as good though, the storyline is a bit weaker and the range of NPCs isnt as cool but it's just as fun and the compexity of it is nice as is the fact you become so much more powerful. Thone of Bhaal sucked majorly though.

Neverwinter Nights was OK, totally different style with a storyline that improved dramatically as the game progressed, some great twists and a fun battle style but I didnt like the graphical style nearly as much and not having a party was a let down too.

The Icewind Dale games are excellent also, though not as good as either BG. I enjoyed the storyline and, though I like finding characters along the way, it was a nice change to create my whole party. However, the major way it lost out was the lack of side quests, the fact that the main plot was all you could do, unlike the BGs and even NWN which have lots of little stuff for you to do.

Those are the only ones I have played on that list.

Im stopped playing Torment again(Im in the Alley of Lingering Sighs). I played it so much in so little time I had to stop it before I started declaring myself th Nameless One, talking to an "invisible" floating skull named Morte, and using the words *know* and *knowing* excessively.

Torment is by far the best. If it's not in the poll, then the arcades shouldn't be either (they're Mystara, aren't they?)

Edit: As for Realms games, BG2 is probably the best

An unusual choice.

Pool of Radiance series from the 90's gets my vote. It has been years since I have thought of those games...doing the save game on my Commador 64....it took so long. But the memories of someone referencing the games was great.

The choice was really really hard, as I really like almost all the games. However, I voted Baldurs Gate I, as it was the first FR game I played, and it introduced me to RPG (was playing Point and Clicks before that).

Sorry coach, no video game has ever topped my imagination, no matter how many people were involved.

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

BG1 will always have a place in my heart, considering I started playing it just after I was introduced to D&D (ah...the good ol days of 2nd ed...).

Although...Drizzt's overly-accented voice always grated on my nerves: "Dahs the mee-yah mention of drizzt, ah-trrrahct yoah illlk?" :D

Though I have played quite a lot of fantasy games after BG2, there has never been one that enchanted me as much as this one. I have played it several times and I will probably soon play it again.

Planescape Torment is also a great game, but I never finished it because graphics and handling where just a bit too out of date for my taste.

I also enjoyed Eye of the Beholder a long time ago back on MS-DOS. Loved the intro story in the manual involving Waterdeep.
