Small thing, but it was better in BG1!

    I also have to agree that a few things were better in BG than in BGII:

    (1) Paperdolls, like it has been already said elfs and half-elves really look like they got hit by a brick wall, also wearing armor seems less cool especially platemail

    (2) More areas to explore in BG than in BGII

    (3) Better soundtrack (some songs that were really good in BG somehow were not included in BGII)

    (4) Having the ability to talk to charmed creatures

    (5) Some effects like the explosions from fireball and oil of fiery burning were watered-down (they don't seem as explosive and awesome)

    And probably several other things that I can't think of right. BGII is obviously the better game but I can say that I enjoyed each game just as much.

    "fetch me my wine" (actual BG1 quest! ).

    actually if its the one from where im thinking then you have to kill a bunch of spiders to get the wine so its a little different.

    bg1 is better imo because it didn't have all the extra planar stuff that bg2 had, that was all a bunch of crap imo.
