Today in History: December 2nd, 2001- Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance Released on Playstation 2

Triverse writes, "Overhead action role playing games are nothing new, after all, some of the best ones from gaming’s past were overhead action fests such as The Legend of Zelda on the original Nintendo (not till the Nintendo 64 did Link abandon 2D for the first time). Games based on Dungeons and Dragons and Advanced Dungeons and Dragons are even older than overhead action RPG’s, dating back to the Atari 2600 and Colecovision days. Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance on the Playstation 2 is quite a leap above, graphically and audiowise, than those aforementioned titles and possibly more accessible to modern gamers to boot." (Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, GameCube, PS2, Xbox)

these games were great co-op fun, this type of game needs to come back to console

champions of norrath 3 would be very, very welcome

at least on pc there are games like the epic diablo 3, the near flawless torchlight 2, the amazing path of exile, the outstanding titan quest(with a new from the devs on the way"Grim Dawn") and many more

consoles need some of these great co-op games
