i have played Baldurs Gate many times and every time i beat it i want to start over and play again. i always try to challenge my self each itime i play and play with different characters. the game in the begining has a huge impact on the games later quests. the different fighting styles of each character in the game is unique. thefact is that when you make a character that person will be a great asset to the party but you will need others to help out on this quest for gorions killer. the least amount of people i beat the game with was four. fighter, cleric, thief, mage. overall from start to finish this is by far my favorite game of all time, and have yet to play a game to even come close to the experience of Baldurs Gate.
