Top 25 RPG Countdown, #10: Baldur’s Gate II

Baldur's Gate II is BioWare's magnum opus, and #10 on our Top 25 RPG Countdown! Guest Troy Goodfellow joins us to break down the story, the world, and all the reasons this RPG deserves a top 10 spot.

Episode Notes

Mass Effect and KOTOR are two of the best RPGs ever made. But when it comes to picking BioWare’s magnum opus, there’s really only one choice. And it’s the RPG that kicks off the final stretch of the Top 25 RPG Countdown!

What makes Baldur’s Gate 2 special? Its sheer scope mostly. With the Infinity Engine tech firmly in place, BioWare was free to churn out a huge number of quests and storylines, and that was exactly what it did. This was BioWare at its most confident, and it’s still evident in how well Baldur’s Gate 2 holds up today. Guest Troy Goodfellow and I discuss all this and more as we add Baldur’s Gate 2 to the Top 25 RPG Countdown!
