Just bought some hardcore 1990's games, which to play first?
You can import your character from BG into BG2, and you will not only have a better character start with (due to permenent stat enhancing tomes you will have read in the first game), you will also be familiar with your character and know how to play them.
BG 1 and 2 uses second edition AD&D rules, and if your not already fairly knowledgable of the ruleset, you can get overwhelmed rather easy. Even more so if you start a new game of BG2 from scratch having never played BG1. BG2 will automatically start a new character at level 7 to level 9 depending on the class, and in 2nd edition AD&D thats a pretty powerful character, with alot of stat quirks and abilitys to take in.
So I recommend buy and starting with BG1 and Tales of the Sword Coast.
"All amazing. But you could have gotten the DIablo battle chest. It's cheap and it comes with the original DIablo, DIablo 2 plus expansions, and a strategy guide. I think they still sell them in stores like Best Buy.
Haha, actually I'm a big D2 player from back in the day, so I already had both D2 and the expansion for quite a while, but I never owned the original, so that's why I got just that one off of ebay (it was about $9 so it was a good price).
And Evilross, because of your advice I just ordered the original Baldur's Gate + Tales of the Sword Coast as well. :)
Thanks for the advice so far everyone!
