    Game to play after SW:KotOR

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was an awesome rpg. The story, the design, the way things interacted. Yum. I just finished it and after playing such a cool game, I am having a hard time picking a PC game to play after it. It is a hard act to follow. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Baldur's Gate 2

    Sure it is older... but it is much excellence in the same sort of style. You don't really need to play BG1 as everything you really need to know is explained in BG2. Plus BG1.... is surprisingly boring as all hell compared to the second one.

    It would also be cheap considering it's age. As a testement to how good they are... they still sell Baldur's Gate II packs that come with the expansion in stores.

    Thanks for the suggestion but would it be best to play the first one before the second one? *g* Might weaken the value of the first if the second one pwns it. I don't care about graphics. Great story and design are priceless. I hate these games being produced now that are all eyecandy and no substance. =/

    System Shock 2 (which is one of the best games ever made) or Deusx which is good but not as good as System Shock 2 .

    I've never even heard of System Shock 2, I heard of Deus Ex. I'll have to look into it. Thanks.

    Heh, yeah if your looking for graphics... Baldurs Gate is not the place you are going to find it. It is a great story and great gameplay. But my reason for disliking the first one is not the story... but the gameplay. Nearly all of the quests in the game are trivial "fetch" or kill "x" monster. The other thing is that you never have any sense of accomplishment in the game. You are always feel weak throughout the whole game... IE. for how long a game it is... I want to feel like I got somewhere. The story is also not THAT great in the first one. But... perhaps reading up on the story if you get the second one is a good idea. I think it the second game adequately explains the events of the first game, but perhaps that is just because I PLAYED the first game (although I was quite bored with it).

    But yes... the second game completely utterly owns the first game in terms of story and gameplay.

    Ahh, yes. I remember hearing people complaining about Baldur's I for that. *nods* I'll definately check out Baldur's II. Thanks. =D

    I only played Baldur's gate 2 and not 1. No problem following the story there. I think you should just go along with 2 (and its expansion pack, Throne of Baal).

    WC3, such a blast.

    HALO, pure friggn fun, story is great, the atmosphere and design are a 10

    BG2, have heard awsome things.

    You know what I want, a sweet, retro ww1 flighter with a little extra style that has an epic story with some cheese love sub plot, ex partner now turned to fly with the enemy, blah blah blah but just heavy on the visuals with more ammo than you could possibly ever use, or even the Red Baron Story, NICE

    I love WC3. Halo is pretty fun, I played it over at my friend's one time on his xbox. We were slaughtering each other when we were on the same team... hehe.
