Kyle of Insert-Disc takes a look at his favorite game of all time: Planescape: Torment for the PC. Recently turned 10, this game turned the computer RPG genre on its head and crafted the greatest video game storyline ever.
Not greatest game ever, but certainly one of the best RPG storylines of all time. It definitely had better characters and a better storyline than most modern "RPG greats" like Obvlivion, Mass Effect, and Fallout 3.
It's no wonder you only have two bubbles, man. You somehow can't resist trashing something with every post. But anyway, I was gonna say about the same sans needless bashing. The story imo is second to none in the *entirety of gaming*. It's a shame so few gamers these days know anything about it and will probably never try it.
I wish the game was on Steam... i should check later.
Great game, lots of bugs, but the story was absolutely amazing. Probably my favorite story in terms of WRPGs, but there are a few JRPGs where I enjoyed the story more, such as Xenogears, FF6 and FF Tactics. Like I said, probably the best story for me in a WRPG, but I enjoyed BG2 more overall (including expansion).
More like Kyle, of Insert-D!ck It was good, but not the "greatest"
It is quite clever how you used word-play to change the site name into something involving male genitalia. You are a very witty man.
Witty? I hope you're being sarcastic.
My favorite game of all time.
Definitly one of the greatest games ever. This and Fallout 1-2 are THE greatests IMO.
Could'nt agree more. :) This one slipped most peoples attention when it was released, even though Black Isle was behind it.
I was one of those that missed this gem when it came out. Only a few years before Black Isle shut its doors I found about Planescape and bought it.
really an awesome game I probably enjoyed Baldur's Gate 2 even more, but the scenario, characters and Universe of Planescape are among the very best of the entire industry I wish they released it on Good Old Games, I'd gladly spend a few euros to play this gem once more
Definitely one of my top favourite PC games. I can't find any new copies (my old one disappeared :S).
baldur's gate 2 is better imo
While I would say BG2 has a bigger scale and is the more complete package, I think Planetscapes storyline and dialogue is better. It's definitely got some great humour, the stuff that Morte comes out with cracks me up. If I was to try and choose which was the better one out of BG2 and Planescape I couldn't. I love them both.
I loved this game, I ended up needing to get a new computer to play it. Good times!
