Baldur's Gate 2 is one of my all time favorite games, across all genres. I'm almost done with my latest BG1EE playthrough, BG2EE is already installed and modded up, ready to go with my imported character. I keep getting drawn back, in between super AAA 3D eye candy, to that 2d (although BGEE versions technically have 3D models now) party based RPG. I loved Pillars of Eternity 1 and 2, Divinity: Original Sin 1 and 2, NWN, Icewind Dale series, Planes of Torment, Tides of Numenaria, Wasteland 2 reboot, etc. etc. but I have probably done about 6-7 complete playthroughs of BG2, vanilla and with mods, and probably had a half dozen more started but interrupted by HD death or computer wipes/upgrades, or other mishaps.
BG2 was also my first introduction to the D&D/AD&D style ruleset, I'm somewhat ashamed to say.
I'm curious if there is something different which each play through you do or do you do the same thing each time? I generally liken these repeat game to popping another quarter in the arcade but maybe not in the world of modding and alternate choices.
I myself have yet to finish BG2. I've restarted 2 or 3 times but never get more than 20ish hrs in the game before I forget about it.
