The best RPG video games

   Hello there! In this blog I'll write reviews of various RPG games for both PC and the consoles. Starting with the greatest examples and ending on the failures. Below is a list of the 3 best classic RPG games that you can play. BG I & II and NwN are masterpieces in taking D&D and making it work as a video game.

- Baldur's Gate
- Baldur's Gate II
- Baldur's Gate II : Throne of Bhaal
- Neverwinter Nights
- Neverwinter Nights : Shadows of Undrentide
- Neverwinter Nights : Hordes of the Underdark

   So, the first one will obviously be BG I. This is the game that proved that RPGs could transfer to the PC sucessfully. Addictive, compulsive, involving, affecting and challenging doesn't even begin to describe how this game sucked me in and didn't let go. Baldur's Gate wasn't the first attempt at making a D&D based game. However, it was the first attempt in making a real-time D&D game. Back then, the announcement of such a feature was met with ridicule. The fact that it was being developed by a then-little known developer, BioWare further fueled such thoughts. A board-game as a real-time action-RPG would surely end up as a horror show, most of the people thought. Turns out BioWare had couple of cards up their sleeves. All aces.

   But after this short start, I have to ask you to wait till the next time were I will give you a full review. Till' then!
