Many wonderful memories of BG2 - I basically learned (at least a rough version of) D+D, by playing it...("WTF is this THAC0 shit???")

Minsc is/was the best sidekick ever.


Was Minsc really the best sidekick? Or was it Minsc's boy Boo that TRULY was the best sidekick in the game?

Go for the eyes.


I just remember Minsc charging into a room and triggering a trap, and saying something about "whoops!" that made me laugh out loud.

At the end of Throne of Bhaal, where you learn what happened to your friends after the game ended, I was genuinely saddened when I read Minsc's part - I felt like I lost a friend. To evoke that kind of emotion from the player is just awesome, and a testament to how good the game was.

Dammit, Bioware really had their shit together back then.
