Any other fans of this game here? It's one of the best RPGs ever released but it didn't sell very well because people were scared away by the large amounts of text and the weird setting.

I love you. ...That is, yes, I am. Edit: If you didn't know, there's a program called NearInfinity that can be used to view any of the dialogue in the game. It requires Java, and I don't think it works with the latest version, but yeah.

[color=DarkGreen]Planescape Torment was wikkid! pleased.gif I got a copy that came with a book version of the game, the dialogue was great, the concept even better. Those where the days of really decent rpgs. I have loads of the BioWare/Black Isle Studios RPGs and there isn't a bad one. [/color]

Already knew about that, but thank you just the same. It's really a shame that so many things weren't included in the game - it's perfect enough as it is, but it could've been even better... Oh, about a year ago, I randomly came across a fellow who apparently worked for Mark Morgan - the soundtrack composer - on IRC. I never saw him again, but I did ask him to tell his boss that I liked his work. Heh, on a side note, it's odd; a friend of mine told me just the other day about how she was looking for the PS:T soundtrack since she liked the game and its music, and I never knew she had even heard of it.

I remember playing it a few years ago when I was into RPG's and played a huge amount of the Baldurs Gate games, Planescape Torment and Diablo II. Good times, and all fantastic games. Its been a few years since I've played any of them now.

I also liked to play everything with the Black Isle logo, those games usually had an interesting story and a funny sort of humour (like jokes on tombstones in Fallout 2). When I started playing Planescape Torment I didn't like it very much because of the strange graphics, I was used to the green forests of Baldur's Gate rather than the strange city of Sigil. But eventually the Planescape-setting was much more interesting. I was quite surprised when I found out that you just have to persuade enough people about something and then it becomes true :)
