Diehard GameFAN Hall of Fame Nomination: Neverwinter Nights (2002)

In honor of the release of the Neverwinter Campaign Setting for 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons, it is Dungeons & Dragons week here at Diehard GameFAN. As part of this week, we will be opening up the Diehard GameFAN Hall of Fame to five nominees – all video games based on Dungeons & Dragons in some way. Our standards are just like the Baseball Hall of Fame: every game will be voted on by members of the staff, and any game that gets 75% of the vote – with a minimum of four votes – will be accepted – or thrown – into their respective Hall.

Neverwinter Nights was a big deal for several reasons. It was Bioware’s first Dungeons and Dragons game without Black Isle or Interplay to help them out. It was Atari’s first real game with the D&D license. It was a test of how well third edition D&D could hold up in a video game after its lackluster debut in Pools of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor. It was a test to see if the PC could still thrive in a market where video game consoles were becoming a larger and larger piece of the market with systems like the Sega Dreamcast and the Sony Playstation 2.

It'll be interesting to see what the other four games are this week. Any guesses? Death Knights of Krynn? Baldur's Gate? *snicker* Daggerdale?
