BGII Wrap-Up

The CEOs of Bioware wrote a wrap-up of Baldur's Gate II for Gamespot. It's sort of like Gamasutra's postmortems, but this one mainly focuses on the lessons learned during the production of BGII. Thanks Blue.

Sadly, I don't know that I have the patience to put in the kind of investment of time and effort necessary to play BGII. I think the first person shooters have ruined my attention span. Having said that, I wish I could play BGII in purely turn-based mode. I prefer to be able to sit back and think about my next move. Granted, you can pause the action, but it's not the same thing.

J.t.Qbe comments: You're right--it isn't. I only played a bit of Baldur's Gate; couldn't stand the "real-time action." Same for Planescape:Torment. I want to like these games, but the obligatory real-time element spoils it. IMHO.
