I've always pondered why the series was called Baldur's Gate, I mean the first one is a no-brainer since it culminates in the city of Baldur's Gate, with everything on the way leading up to the city itself.
However, the second game takes place in Amn, and the expansion takes place in Tethyr. The city is still in the title, yet the city of Baldur's Gate does not feature in the second game nor the expansion (ToB).
I would fantasize the games (if I were to name them) being called: Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast, Athkatla: Shadows of Amn and Tethyr: Throne of Bhaal. The focus on the games is on the Bhaalspawn who grew up in Candlekeep, so I could also see it being called Bhaalspawn, Bhaalspawn: Tales of the Sword Coast, Bhaalspawn: Shadows of Amn, and lastly Bhaalspawn: Throne of Bhaal.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? What would you have called the games if it was up to you?
Note: I am a bit unsure where to post this thread, so I'll post it in General Discussion.
