Neverwinter Nights: Worst RPG ever?

I played this when it came out and just found it horrible. The graphics the setting all of it. Anyone else?

No. It was good, and fan modders went so far as to create their own versions of Ultima IV in there.

Also, I enjoyed being a summoner type, and having rapid beavers(& other woodland rodentia) attack goblins.

Nah was a bit too D&D for me.

Best RPG ever. Great support from Bioware, regular patches, a DM Client and Toolset! Scripting providing pretty much limitless scope for change/development of the game/rules. Modding supported & encouraged, two fantastic expansions, nearly complete D&D 3.0 rules, Forgotten Realms setting, huge muliplayer options (persistant worlds supported, one shot adventures, multiple DMs with total control over players if need be). All this on top of a HUGE, well made Single Player Campaign.

Darra, you're insane. I was going to delete this thread, but I hired a hitman instead.

You were going to delete this thread because it disagrees with you? Nice. All the above reasons you listed are exactly why I hate this game. I want an RPG to be an RPG not a science project.

just kidding.

playing the game right out of the box wasn't at all sciencey, that was the point. make character, play game. but, if you wished, there was so much more you could do with it. it had huge scope, and it would've been so easy for them to release it as just a single player game, play through it once, go spit. it's the closest thing to a P&P RPG on a computer. which is why roleplayers loved it.
and sure it's going to be a bit too D&D. it *is* D&D.

i always liked the portrait artist these guys used.

Ok I tell you what I'll load it up and play it again over the weekend. And if I like it I'll eat humble pie, lose an argument on the internet and win the special olympics. Deal?

I watched my housemate play the first one and thought it was incredibly boring.

I'm playing this at the moment and it totally kicks arse (like my groovy Monk, Fumble Horse.) What are you, a Final Fantasy booster or sump'n?

You've Had Your Chances (noodle vague), Friday, 3 November 2006 18:04 (seventeen years ago) link

No Final Fantasy is gay. I like Fallout and Arcanum and stuff like that.

How are you liking NWN, Darra? Did you try it again?

Yeah I'll happily admit I was wrong! You can steal gold from plague sufferers!

But I bought it when it came out and lent it to a friend so I haven't broken the law!

one year passes...

wtf why is this $100 used for the mac?

phil-two, Saturday, 5 July 2008 21:23 (sixteen years ago) link

The Mac gaming market is insane. Since nobody plays these games, and there's little demand and few people buy them... Mac games hold their value for years and years! It's ridiculous.

Fuck corrupted dragons, for real.

Noodle Vague, Saturday, 5 July 2008 22:06 (sixteen years ago) link

LOLZ at Darramouss' turnaround on this thread.

Phil, just get the windows interface for mac and then get the game used for PC. Sounds like it'd be cheaper.

oh, good idea.

wait, how do i do that?

phil-two, Sunday, 6 July 2008 20:07 (sixteen years ago) link

Honestly, I don't have any experience with it, but it doesn't look that difficult.

Basically you will need a full version/CD of Windows to install, with a separate partition of your hard drive for it and reboot to Windows when you want to game. It works well enough, but the inertia of staying in Mac OS X makes me not want to reboot, generally.

There are virtualization options that let you run Windows programs in Mac OS X without rebooting (Darwine, Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion) but these are, by and large, no good for games.
