What cRPGs Dreams Are Made Off

Whoever doubts that computer gaming is an art-form should play Planescape: Torment.

Words simply fail to describe the perfect symphony of brilliant ideas, immersing story, beautiful environments, mesmerizing music, fun gameplay and detailed coding that made this game an unsurpassed classic!
To this day, I have yet to meet anyone who has played it and not raved about it.

NamelessOne and his companions are characters that will stay with you forever. The graphics may seem a bit outdated nowadays (they are the same as the first Baldur's Gate, they share the same Infinity engine); however, true RPG gamers know that graphics are not an aim in itself.

This is clearly not a new game but it is the review I wanted to fire my Blog off with.
Do do not expect an exploding eye-candy or a fast-paced game (try YouTube to check out whether this may not be your cup of tea). One has to let himself get lost in the world of the Planes and the doomed city of Sigil. Their magic shall always stay with you.

This used to be sold out game and could only be found in old stock houses and eBay. Count yourself lucky and treat yourself to this gem. Trust me, this is a game you must experience during your lifetime.
