Matt Marinett of PC Gaming Enthusiast has been hours-and-hours in. He delivers his thoughts on what he's experienced this far.
"Playing Baldur’s Gate was one of the foundational experiences of my young gaming life. Along with its Infinity Engine cousins, Fallout and Planescape: Torment, it proved that great fantasy and science fiction was not confined to the page. Instead, it could be reformulated in a narrative that immersed me in its world, reacted to my actions, and forced me to question my choices. It proved that games were a narrative medium that could rise to the level of art."
