@ChernobylCow: I'm frankly intimidated by Planescape. I got to one point and was flooded with all this secret information that I felt like I had done something wrong and upset the balance of the game universe, so I backed out. I probably have to play through it again from the beginning now that it's been so long, but a world like that deserves another chance. Crazy worlds like that are what games and movies do well, since they have the potential to blind-side us with overwhelming, fascinating detail. I never have gotten a chance to try out the Jade Empire for the PC with the harder difficulty level, but I wonder if it's still not dynamic enough a combat system that you can just spam the attacks. I still enjoyed the combat, but as I advanced in power I felt like I was cheating. When I hindered myself on the second playthrough it was actually kind of fun, but you get to a point where it's you chopping through a lot of hit points. I may figure out the proper level of self-hindering yet.
