Go For The Eyes, Boo!

GOG is running a sale on all their D&D games this weekend, ranging from 20% to 60% off depending on how many you buy.

Six of them* are very, very good, and I've finished all six - though I didn't finish Torment until 2007.  The GOG versions include all their respective expansion packs as well, and several of them come with downloadable soundtrack CDs and other neat bonus items.  (And if you're new to GOG, they're all completely DRM free.  I already had all those games, but I bought them again so that I don't need to worry about the CDs any more.)

And because the discount increases as you go, the remaining three, which I own but haven't played, will set you back about 46 cents each.

If you like D&D and have about 400 hours to spare, this is probably the best gaming bargain in history.

* Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Icewind Dale 1 & 2, Planescape: Torment, and Neverwinter Nights.  Actually, the included adventure in NWN wasn't that great in its original release, but the second expansion, Hordes of the Underdark, was just amazing.  And NWN also includes design tools and a multi-player server (including a Linux version) so that you can set up your very own MORPG.  Not MMORPG - it's limited to 64 simultaneous players - but what do you want for four bucks?

1 Actually, they will pay you to take The Temple of Elemental Evil - all 9 for US $34.31, but it goes up to $35.92 if you drop ToEE.  Sounds about right - I don't recall it as a standout (not being a classic Bioware game)

2 So I've just gotten myself "paid" that $1.61, and in 380 or so hours of elapsed D&D gameplay, might actually download and install ToEE.

3 I'd say that ToEE is worth at least -$1.61, so you're on to a winner there.
