Torment, good call...
I am trying at the moment to collect all the Bioware bigbox RPG games, just managed to get Tales of the sword coast stand alone (not the crappy double boxset) and Baulders gate DVD edition to go with my Torment and BG 5 disk version. (also have the Icewind Dale games).
Before Baulders gate I wasn't interested in RPG's in the slightest, they are truely ground breaking titles... well for me anyway...

I'm not much of a hoarder when it comes to games - in fact I'm about to have another purge of things that don't get played much. There are a couple of things that will never leave my possession if I have any say in the matter though. My Amiga Dungeon Master and Chaos Strikes Back, and my Speccy Elite. Neither particularly rare or valuable, but filled with such great memories. The only annoying thing is that I mail-ordered DM, and the postie squished it through the letterbox, so the box is creased. I clearly remember hearing him start to push it through and running downstairs but I was too late :cry:

As far as R@RE!! goes I have a Silvergun (which everyone seems to have, to be honest). It doesn't get the attention it deserves (I no longer have the kind of attention span such a game needs), so I think it's for the chop. Valkyrie Profile I've pretty much cleaned out so it's bye-bye to that too (plus, I backed it up for ePSXe purposes anyway :wink: ).

In fact, my most treasured gaming possessions aren't games at all, but soundtracks. I've got Perfect Selection Dracula ~ New Classic, and both the Phantasy Star Collection arrangement albums with the accompanying booklet. I also have the three Pro-Fusion Konami Kukeiha Club albums (Salamander, Twinbee and Tokimeki Memorial). They'd be the things I'd grab in the event of a fire :lol:

I don't have any R@Re stuff, but I suppose I do tend to look at my Crash & YS magazines on a fairly regular basis.

If you haven't already got Torment,then get it! Very involving RPG,
deeper storyline than BG 1+2,less locations and action, but far more
dialogue

Also,have you tried any of the fan's expansion packs for BG at planetbaldursgate com?
