    I can't remember anything about NWN2, but I'm pretty sure there are some mind flayers.

    Also, obligatory Divinity Original Sin 3 joke.

    Sunless Sea I guess. Not much of a RPG though.

    Dark Sun: Wake of the Ravager has a fantastic Underdark sequence where you can trash a mind flayer colony, including its elder brain.

    I remember playing NWN1's HotU expansion and encountering a shitload of mindflayers that were neutral to my party -- a whole community of them in fact -- and I was told by EVERYONE that they were utterly something to be feared so I was nervous among them. Then I pissed them off somehow and they all attacked me. Bracing for the worst and prepared to make a run for it, I turned to fight as they zapped me left and right with their mind-controlling bullets. I killed them all in approximately one minute with not so much as a soiled codpiece in my party. I was like "WTF?" Did the game just bug out on me? Turns out I just happened to have a player character and companions that were all immune to mind magic. When I replayed HotU years later and encountered that same community with the same C&C, it took just one mindflayer to turn my entire party against itself and we were all self-murdered within a minute. What goes around comes around.

    Currently playing through D&D Tactics, a 3.5E turn-based tactics game, and there's an optional gauntlet that contains an encounter with 5 Mind Flayers:

    Survive the Mind Flayers and an encounter with 5 Beholders is the reward.

    Just put a helmet on with a controller in your hand and watch Stranger Things. Maybe dress in your bathrobe cinched with tow rope.

    LARP away. life is but a dream

    Mindflayers are in MotB. I can't remember if you fight them, but one definitely appears at the hag part.

    I think that even in the NWN OC you actually fight an Intellect Devourer.

    D&D Tactics for PSP, a decently faithful representation of 3.5e D&D in the form of a turn based tactics game. It's got a bunch of issues, mostly stemming from the bizarre platform choice of a PSP over a PC for this genre of game, but I'm finding it decent enough to want to complete the campaign. PPSSPP runs it flawlessly.

    So there is a 3.5 game with MOTHERFUCKING PSIONICS and it's for PSP only. I'm one of the biggest D&D 3.5 fans in the entire world and I didn't know about this game.

    I am astonished.

    I don't think you end up fighting but the PC game Menzoberranzan has Methil El-Viddenvelp.
