We already have threads talking about whether it holds up today or if it's still worth playing. I suppose I am asking that, but I made it into a poll. While the poll isn't for its sequel, I am also curious about that game as well. Honestly, call me shallow because of it, but after Disney de-canonized many of the games, I've felt a lack of motivation to play them. It's weird though because I enjoy the games much, much, much more than any of the films, so it's just the fact that it's no longer canon that pushes me away from completing it. I've started and stopped the game multiple times, and each time I jump back in I have to learn everything all over again.
I got the game on Steam in late 2009, that's my first time really delving into it, but I didn't get that far in. The farthest I ever got on the Steam version was early in the game when you have to disguise yourself as one of the soldiers to get into an area. In all, I've spent 12 hours on that version due to restarting it over and over. Then a year or two ago I bought it on the Xbox One through back compat and played it up to the part that you start training as Jedi. The last time I played it, which was a bit after I got the Xbox One X, I totally forgot how things worked in the game again so I quit soon after.
I hear it a lot, but people often say it's not only the best Bioware game but one of the best games period. Would you say that this game, among many others, is one of those 'must play' games? On a total side note, the reason I bring this up is that there are rumors that they may actually turn this into a film. If anyone wants to discuss that, you can also say what your thoughts are on that. Anyways, should I just say 'F it' and get through it and perhaps its sequel? I acknowledge that my reasoning is bad for not wanting to get through it, but it has always been the issue I've had that stops me. Also, to be clear, I do enjoy it and don't feel it's aged badly in any major way that'd put me off. And yes, I already know the twist in the story.
