The first serious RPG I ever played. The early game is brutal (especially as a wizard), but as you develop your party and explore the world, so many interesting things happen. The sequel was even better. And I love that they are coming out with a lot of clones of this. Also, I'm a huge Forgotten Realms / DnD fan. Baldur's Gate while listening to Smashing Pumpkins more or less defined a summer vacation when I was in high school.

Has less content than BG2 (and perhaps a few too many trash mods, cf Firewine Bridge), but I enjoy the low-level adventuring and the lack of long, linear main quest sections compared to its successor. Like all Infinity Engine titles, the game has an impeccable sense of atmosphere. The Sword Coast Stratagems mods greatly improves the combat experience for all games in this series.

A big, appealing take on the usual sort of DnD formula. It certainly brought more scale and atmosphere than the Gold Box games of old and their successors could. I was never as wild about the combat in the earliest Infinity Engine games as some, but it was a decent enough system at the time.

Classic. Great game. I do prefer turn-based D&D RPGs, but seeing as those fell out of favor I've taken what I can get.
