    I never understood the mentality behind those sequals. They took two very popular PC franchises and decided to scrap everything that made them popular and release gauntlet clones. Yeah... that shit makes sense.

    They may be fun dungeon hacks, but... they're nothing like the originals.

    By that logic, they never should have made Final Fantasy Tactics!

    Spin-offs into new genres are just fine, ESPECIALLY when they are done well (which, admittedly, is rarely). BG on the consoles are very fun, tho

    True, except they didn't quit making standard Final Fantasy games when Tactics came out. It was truley a spin-off.

    The situation's more akin to the Shining Force series. Sega has apparently abandoned the tactical play mechanics in favor of action RPGs that generate mediocre reviews.

    I personally wouldn't mind Baulder's Gate the Gauntlet clone if there had been a Baulder's Gate III to continue the series. It's not a spin-off so much as a new direction in gameplay. See my point?

    Yea, I never much cared for the console Brotherhood of Steel game. The difficulty was all over the place (when it wasn't too hard it was just too tedious) and the writing was just really weak. The three Fallout games on PC are quite a bit different (with the third one, "Brotherhood of Steel" being different from the first two) and generally quite a bit better.

    Ahhh that is a good distinction! Has there been any word ever of a PC continuation of Baldur's Gate? Been awhile since the last BG-style PC game, that I can think of...

    I'm pretty sure that the makers of Baldur's Gate moved from that series to Icewind Dale I & II & Planescape: Torment, and then moved on to Neverwinter Nights, where they're currently parked.
    I have no signature.

    And don't forget the original Kinghts of the Old Republic. (:

    I know that they still make good games. I'm just disapointed that the BG series had to end with the console versions. It's hardly the climax I would have liked to have seen.

    Icewind Dale I, II, and Planescape Torment were from different developers than Baldur's Gate I and II, though Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance II for Xbox/PS2 was from the same guys that did Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (Xbox/PS2), who were comprised of people that had previously worked on IWD and Planescape Torment. Black Isle did co-produce the first Baldur's Gate with Bioware, IIRC...but I'm not sure what the extent was of their involvement. A bunch of those Black Isle guys wound up at Obsidian working on Knights of the Old Republic II and Neverwinter Nights II, as well.

    It's a shame we didn't get a full on trilogy, but I think they did a pretty good job wrapping up the storyline in 2 games + 2 expansions. I sure as fuck wouldn't complain if they ever made a new one, though.

    Not to even further tangent the fuck out of this thread, but has anyone played Jade Empire? How does it compare to Knights of the Old Republic in terms of length, difficulty, and quality? As much as I completely LOVED KotOR, it was pretty darn short (when all was said and done, only about 15%-20% the amount of time I put into my first run of Baldur's Gate II)

    Jade Empire's good, but if length is an issue I'm afraid it's very short aswell.

    i wanna bring this topic back from teh dead to ask a little different question: what good diablo clones are there today. i loved titan quest and looking for something modern like it.

    also, i played everything else mentioned here. and i love the console BG games (as well as the PC ones, but they are like mentioned, very different)

    Another vote for Throne Of Darkness. If you're on an older machine, it'll work fine. It ran with no problems on my old 1.7 ghz celeron PC, running XP.

    Yeah but it looks horrible. The first one is pretty good (though it's missing that something) so I was pretty pumped about the second. The last trailer I saw pretty much killed all the excitement I had. It looks generic and truely mediocre.

    How didn't you get that same vibe from the first one? I bought a cheap jewel case copy of it at some point and couldn't find a single thing exciting in it.

    Well, I'm new here, and was looking for "Diablo Clones" as called on internet, because I've been playing a really good clone already.

    I might say i liked it better than diablo II, except the fact that the items are not random-created and the atmosphere is lighter...

    ARCANUM: OF STEAMWORK AND MAGICK OBSCURA

    I simply love the game, is free to explore, even letting you avoid totally the mission, choose between magick and technology (which i would example as: do you want to launch a fireball or a cannon?), in fact, the game is set in a time where trains and guns are common, but also are magick (magic) and elves, dwarves, orcs and so.

    Well, is nice game to play, and not so heavy, i play it on an almost dead PC and is still running smoothly except a lag moment when there are too much monsters (and my party is of 6 including me, my summoned permanent familiar, which is a tiny dragon, my DOG - yes, you can have a dog - a dwarf, a magick-practicer dwarf -which is weird 'coz they hate magick, a half-orc and my character, who is a half-elf)

    In actual computers it might run lightspeed like XD

    Anyway. NOX is a great game also, i played it...

    Dungeon Siege, I love the big scenario... it doesn't go to wait-screen even if you go down into a dungeon (something that both Diablo and Arcanum do)

    That's all I have to share n.n and is weird that not a single one mentioned Arcanum, which has the same grid inventory, 2D isometric interface, similar sprites, EXACTLY same way of hack-slashing monsters...

    But enough, right now I'm an Arcanum fan more than i was of Diablo II, and I'm also expecting Diablo III...

    Yeah, I know what you mean. When I first played the original I only had the demo, so the areas I could access were restricted. I think that really helped me get excited about the game because I explored every nook and cranny and squeezed all I could out of the demo. Then I got the full game (and the expansion) and it's just too big. You kind of feel like you're lost in this huge land and nothing you do really matters. I still enjoy playing it from time to time because it IS so much like Diablo, but it is missing some addicting quality.

    Welcome! Very very good game. Probably closer to Baldur's Gate and its ilk than Diablo, but still excellent. I had an absolute blast with it - I intentionally made the stupidest character I possibly could. My conversation options were hilarious. He was also very frustrated with life and usually started killing everything in sight when he got upset. Needless to say, he wiped out quite a few small towns completely, heh, which is an interesting possibility.

    I particularly liked all the "backgrounds" you could choose from that gave you both positive and negative traits.

    I was playing an open source Diablo-type game a while back, FreeDroid, in which you are Tux the Penguin and are on a quest to save the world from a Microsoft type company, lol. It was entertaining and seemed like a fun game.

    well if your looking for somthing realy similar to diablo my advice is this

    Blade and Sword

    i advise this to people who loved Throne of darkness too since this is like a D2 and ToD in 1.
