    I hope you enjoyed this great game. Come back and see us again sometime ... perhaps when you've got bored with how inferior every other game is :grin:

    As always there are multiple ways of how to interpret posts on the Internet.

    I do interpret your post @Gallowglass as lighthearted and funny, maybe half-joking.

    However, I have noticed a certain well "elitism" here about Baldur's Gate. It certainly is one of my favorite games but sometimes I do wonder if every other game is really so much inferior to Baldur's Gate - the pinnacle of video games development since the beginning of computers - or if the glorification of Baldur's Gate might have something to do with subjective perception.

    I don't want to open a can of worms here. I already said I do take your comment above as lighthearted.

    I prefer the witchers and mask of the betrayer honestly. First witcher was kind of silly and didn't play well though, and witcher 2 involved so much lore that I don't think I understood it very well. Loved running around Novigrad though, it was like an open world version of Athkatla.

    @Gallowglass yeah I'm sure I'll be back sometime. But it won't be because of the other games. I only play this one. And IWD. Anyway, hope to see you when I will.

    I think it has to do with both. The game is very good, but there's also something else; people here love this game. I haven't found a game as good as Baldur's Gate yet. Even if Ps:T had a much better story and is probably my favourite video game, it still isn't as good as BG (just a quick "hours spent in Ps:T vs hours spent in BG" and saying yet again that Ps:T's combat is very bad). I'd doubt there's a game better than BG and if there was, I doubt it'll fill the shoes of BG for all the fans on this forums.

    So yeah, it's definitely both I think.
