Steam released re - touched "enhanced editions" of both Baldurs gate 1 and Baldurs gate 2? I wondered if anyone does/ will want to play these online?

Uber classic game.I was playing it in the early 2000s.It's just epic,it's pure AD&D with great characters,so many nice quests and dialogues.
It's sequel,was somehow even MORE epic,although I never got to finish it(I was playing Baldur's Gate 2 Shadows of Amn in 2004-2005 and stopped playing it when I got my then new PC in 2005).Its Icewind Dale series were pretty darn good too.

I have Baldur's Gate 1 in original boxed retail version with map and all the series in free DVD edition :D

Loved this game, didn;t get very far on it, and nothing will ever beat Eye of the Beholder on Sega CD Ithankyou.

Retouched editions tho? Hmmm... might be worth a look...

I loved playing that game. I played a lot until my computer screwed up the disc and I wasn't able to install it anymore.

Baldur's Gate is without question my favourite RPG series (contrary to my username!).

However it must be said that BG2 is vastly superior to the original. I really like the original, but the game has far too many "open and sparse" maps. BG2 is a huge step up and to me the measuring stick by which I gauge other RPG's.

GOG has some great deals for the series including their expansions. Very cheap and digitally accessible whenever you want.
