Game #1: Baldur’s Gate & Tales of the Sword Coast
Set in AD&D’s Forgotten Realms using 2nd Edition rules, you lead your PC along the Sword Coast, trying to uncover the importance that strangers and mercenaries have placed on you. The Baldur’s Gate series has been credited, along with Diablo and Fallout, for reviving the RPG genre on the PC in the late nineties, and it won many Game of the Year awards. In 2011, with the term “RPG” encompassing many different styles and collaborating with other genres, is it still that good?
