Has anyone here played both series? I am looking for a little advice. In what little free time I devote to actually playing games I decided to get back into pc rpg's. I got Baldurs gate 2 and icewind dale 1 and 2 with expansions as a gift. I also have played already BG1 and TotSC addon. Now my question is should I play ID1, or BG2?


I don't know.. I've never played any of them! Was BD1 any good?
I never could really get into PC RPG's aside from console RPG like ones such as Septerra Core or the PC version of Grandia II, FFVII and FFVIII. - The central hub of the ROM hacking community.


Well compared to todays graphic standards and later BG/ID titles, BG1 is a little lacking in graphics, and gameplay. But it is how the series started, everything has to start somewhere.  ;) But I really enjoyed it after I figured out that I could pause the game and plan the attack out instead of getting killed before I had everyones attack turn input. Mama always said, "READ THE DOCS AND READMES!"


i have finish both baldurs gate 1 and 2 an ice windale 1 an 2 i liked ive windale 2 more because it has more action an you get to pick from many races also you are able to make your own party
