When I originally played BG it was possible to equip items without having to identify them first, which meant that the Ring of Folly, Gauntlets of Fumbling or Cursed Two-Handed Sword actually posed some kind of threat. Even after I had played a couple of times I managed to get the Girdle of Masculinity/Femininity and the Girdle of Piercing mixed up and succeeded in turning Khalid into a girl (so no change there then).
However, I think later versions require you to identify items before you can use them, which means cursed items are meaningless because no one can ever get caught out by them.
So, people, my question is, how can we make cursed items fun again?
