Thirteen years after release, Baldur's Gate II is still one of the best role-playing games of all time. No joke. If you consider yourself an RPG fan, this is a game you have to play.
One of the best role-playing games ever made is coming back on November 15. Like the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate before it, BG2 is getting a total overhaul: four new party members, a widescreen version, and so forth.
Inspired mostly by Medieval architecture and the Middle Ages, fortified stone castles in video games are always among the most exciting locations. These bastions are the keepers of many secrets, hidden cellars and lost knowledge all awaiting the player to find them.
Remember that awesome scene near the beginning of Baldur's Gate II, when you're escaping that first (annoying) dungeon and Irenicus comes out, kidnaps one of your companions, and wreaks havoc everywhere?
