    Not an argument, everything is shit compared to Fallout, Torment is still a masterpiece.

    Really, you're going to bitch about the fact that you didn't know how to use inventory (which is ok), low res graphics (which was ok at the time and now we have mods) and combat (which is known to be shit) in this story-driven game? And yes, there are almost no fucking meaningful choices like in every other game excluding AoD.

    Edgy bastard.

    You'll have to wait a year I'm afraid.
    OP can write full sentences, so no, not likely.

    It's more like the OP is himself a joke.

    Meh, I don't think so. Like even something like Mount and Blade and Oblivion revolves around character creation and character progression. This does not do that so much. Although messing it up too badly could mean you can't finish the game.

    Still, it's a good game, just not great IMO. But everyone, even fanboys like SCO are entitled to their opinions.

    I've never even played PS:T, but since your biggest complaint (in bad bold) comes from complaining about the resolution, means this is probably a good game. I'm gonna play it now. Did you hate Jagged Alliance 2 too? Just so I know your opinions are legit.

    Never played Jagged but you shouldn't play the game in its normal resolution. Every review back when it was released blasted it cause of that. The resolution creates an effect that your line of sight is actually obstructed by it and not the fog of war. It's a complete failure on the side of the developers and/or the hardware available back then.

    I don't remember thinking back in the day the resolution sucked or was a problem. The problem is with idiots like you it seems.

    The problem is with fanboys like you mate. Look, the game sold incredibly badly despite the publicity it got. Every professional reviewer complimented the story but criticized the game-play aspects of the actual game.
    The game is cherished as one of the best RPGs out there but it is still played by very few, compared to any other good old RPG. There is a reason for that. Few can actually stomache the terrible technical difficulties and many who do actually find that the games quality regresses as it goes on which is admitted even by codexers.

    I was hoping to see some actual intelligent rebuttals of at least the part of my criticism that dealt with the story but since even that is lacking and everything else is just "oh it doesn't matter" then I just concede that you probably never even understood the more complex parts of the story and so the discussion is senseless.

    What this basically does, I forgot to add and again I curse the lack of an edit button for even 5 minutes, is that this creates a truly elitist atmosphere of few people who actually ever finished the game and the vast majority who trust their opinions and do not go and try and finish it themselves. I did and t his is my story... *Drumroll*

    It is not our problem that 90% of world population are idiots. And you are putting yourself into that group with this topic. I know truth hurts, but deal with it.
