Is this my dream come true?
As most of you will know, Baldur's Gate, and its amazing sequal, were the golden age of rpg's. Before we had proper MMORPG's or anything similar, this game came along and blew most rpg fanatics minds.

Now argueably, Planescape, also made by the same people had a more intense storyline. And BG II was in truth the pinnacle of the Infinty Engine's rpg.

However, when I heard this was being redone, I almost wet my pants. (Which was frustrating as they had a + 5 bonus against water based creatures).

Seriously though, without spoilers, will I be able to return to Sword Coast and relive the game that saw me through my childhood? I've heard a lot of nay sayers, but for you folks who enjoyed the original, am I going to love this?

I'm of the opinion that if you've played the original, especially recently, there isn't enough added to the game to justify the purchase. If its been awhile since you've played then go right ahead.

The main additions (in the main campaign) are the addition of 6 kits over what you'd get if you were to use Tutu, as well as 4 new NPC's. 3 of those NPC's have their own fairly short quest lines.

it has been awhile since I last played, but I never ever completed the original. At the end when I fought Sarevok, he kept killing me. I know there must have been something else that I had to do to make him vulnerable.

The story is still very fresh in my mind though, so don't know whether to wait until the biggie; BG II

I played bg1 and 2 into the ground, but I picked up this game to fund the devs. I want to see them make bg3 down the road.

Sorry to disappoint you, but they already made BG3 - but went with a different gaming system and ended up calling it Neverwinter Nights

Yeah your right, but I think BG3 was in production for a long time, and almost reached completion. It may still be out there, waiting to be finished, although the legal ramifications would be enormous.

Bioware named Dragon Age the spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate.

Planescape: Torment was made by Black Isle, not Bioware. Not the same studio.
