    There are a lot of polls about which is better IWD or BG and most people like BG. How about this, which is the best BG game?

    I dont know... i voted for BGII, though at the same part, i consider ToB a part of that because it was merely an expansion. I found BGII to really be more open then BG and it seemed to carry well for me.

    This is a fairly easy call for me but in the end I end up with the same rankings as Khelben.

    BG
    BG - TotSC

    I voted BG1 because, if there wasn't a number one there wouldn't be any other games, an that one wa my favorite.

    I voted for BG 2,because I like it if you are a little bit stronger than in BG I(around Lv7 wasn't enough) and because of the many dialoges with your group members in BG II.

    BG II all the way. The poll seems a little messed up, though. Results added to around 150%.

    Though I enjoyed all four games,I voted for Baldurs Gate.They were all good but the way the story developed in the first one was the best IMHO.
    Shadows of Amn was a close second.For me Throne of Bhall was too overpowered with too many super magic items.I just never enjoyed playing those high levels.

    Well I've not tried BG yet, so I can't really say anything, but out of SoA and ToB I would say that ToB somehow renders less freedome, in ways similar to IWD2. The whole rush towards the end limits the time you have to walk around, and utilize your newfound highlevel abilities.

    [​IMG] The results are indeed messed up. I'll look into it.

    Edit: The results are fine... The problem is that the poll is multiple selections so everyone who voted could choose either 1, 2 or all 3 options. That's why it goes over 100%... So, blame the guy who made the poll.
