Interesting how the passage of time bends one's memories?
Here's how Gruntboy viewed the Icewind Dale Board during January 2001:
[color="Yellow"]Is this forum small 'cos IWD is too easy?[/color]
[color="Yellow"]Thought I'd liven up the IWD board - what about some of them thar fights eh?[/color]
[color="Yellow"]Sure there's some tough parts to it (some people might disagree with fighting Behlifet at the end - i think he's pretty mean). Overall its simplistic (but fun!) - so you don't get as much discussion as for BG2.[/color]
[color="Yellow"]So no "wah-wah, I prefer BG2" people please. Yes, I like BG2 and I know you can do it multiplayer , but I'd like to hear about people picking their party line-ups for IWD.[/color]
And these are over 3 different threads during this game's peak period of interest, between the release of the main game and the expectation of the expansion.
Reading through those early threads I can honestly say, for the IWD board at least, I've had some steaming discussions with kmonster, gawainBS, Wise Grimwald and the like over the past couple of years which poor old Gruntboy could only dream about.
Back to the 'what happened to all the BG2 fans?' discussion
