Why SoD and Beamdog are important
Back in the late 90's, it was amazing to see Bioware rise to such great heights so quickly with Baldurs Gate and its sequel, and I think I speak for many when I say that it was equally disappointing to see the direction that Bioware went afterwards.
To watch them depart from that pinnacle of crpg complexity in order to create games with mass market appeal that were more "cinematic" and action-oriented was very frustrating and disheartening to many of us.
So to have Beamdog pick up this crpg torch of valuing substance over style all these years later seems like a modern day miracle.
This is why Beamdog and this expansion are so important to modern game design as well as a breath of fresh air to so many of us.
