    Look everybody. Spooky eyes. You may not know literally anything about the game other than our take on misses in videogames, but the game definitely has spooky eyes. Get hyped.

    Maybe it's a hint that it's first person and your character is looking at the spooky eyes?

    I think that’s a freeze frame from the TSR brand video at the start of BG1, with the dragon.

    Looking at the old TSR video, it isn't a freeze frame. The similarities to the dragon in the video are striking though, it's probably an homage.

    It's either a Mindflayer or a big cat. Seeing how this is all about Mindflayers, I cast my vote for big cat.

    Maybe it's the last photo Swen took before he was eaten by his own dog Gustav. You know, the dog ate a mindflayer sometime ago... hmmm...

    No, she is actually right and you are fucking moron if you can't see it.

    One of the first things i do in all games that use that God awful BG2 shit is replace everything with the BG originals.

    Just because Watcher's Keep doesn't look like an actual castle doesn't make it worse than Durlag's, from a design perspective. WK is a magically protected dungeon, it doesn't need primitive things like outer walls, or moats. Its design makes sense if you think about it.

    I am amazed to find out someone thinks BG2 aesthetics are better than BG1. Apart from the more detailed maps and effects, it's pretty much universally accepted in the community that BG1 fundamentals are vastly superior.

    But even if you don't agree, there's just no way you can argue with regards to paperdolls and avatars. Here BG1 wins with such a huge margin it should be obvious to everyone.
