Baldur’s Gate 2 Complete Hits GOG
For old-school PC gamers like myself, the Baldur’s Gate series represents the pinnacle of the fantasy RPG. It was developed by this little company you may have heard of called Bioware, who apparently went on to make games about spaceships and whatnot.
Baldur’s Gate 2 hit the market about 10 years ago, winning multiple Game of the Year awards, as well as appearing on nearly every PC gamer’s all-time greatest hits list. In 2001, a sequel hit the market, titled Baldur’s Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal. All in all, the game represents the best of the games based on the Dungeons & Dragons rule set (it was built around the 2nd Edition AD&D rules, if you’re wondering).
If you weren’t into RPGs back then, didn’t have a PC that would run it, or just plain weren’t old enough to get involved in it, you’ve got a second chance now, thanks to Good Old Games.
GOG has just made Baldur’s Gate 2 Complete available on their DRM-free store. For $9.99, you’ll get all of the following:
- Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn
- Baldur’s Gate II: Throne of Bhaal
- 2 manuals (181 pages)
- 15 HD wallpapers
- 13 avatars
- 87 artworks
- Throne of Bhaal reference card
It’s a great deal for a game that still holds up pretty darn well. Heck, it’s worth ten bucks to me to not have to dig out my old discs to play the game again.
