 We love Virtual Console but man fuck writing a full review of something we just paid six dollars for. Have a Quick Hit instead.

A D&D licensed RPG for the PC. But that wasn't what drew me to it. In fact, prior to playing Baldur's Gate, I'd never even played Dungeons and Dragons. But I didn't need to - the game was good enough that it drew me in and got me interested in learning all of D&D's intricate mechanics and strategic nuances. It had a fun cast of characters, an interesting and well-written plot, a vast and detailed universe that you got to explore a large chunk of firsthand, and gameplay that was actually challenging, heavily steeped in teamwork and strategic planning to overcome increasingly dangerous obstacles you encounter. What more could you ask for in an RPG? Well, a lot, I suppose, but that's all you need to make a good game in my book. Head over to Good Old Games and pick it up. Hell, you don't even have to swap CDs every time you change areas anymore with their version.

score:

It just saddens me that ever since the turn of the century Bioware is stuck programming crap ranging from bland (Mass Effect, Jade Empire) to mediocre (Dragon Age) to outright insulting (Dragon Age 2, the Witcher).
