In the high fantasy medieval world of Forgotten Realms lies the continent of Faerun. Baldur's Gate is one of the biggest and most important trading towns and city-states on the continent.

Trivia

It has been posited on various websites that Baldur's Gate composer Michael Hoenig plagiarized the orchestration for the game track "Attacked by Assassins" from Henry Mancini's original orchestrated theme to the film Lifeforce (1985). No formal allegations have been made but if one compares the two tracks the similarities between the music from the 1998 game and the 1985 film is incredibly striking. See more »

One of the best RPGs ever
11 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

I haven't played the sequel "Baldur's Gate II - Shadows of Amn" yet, which is said to be even better, but Baldur's Gate is definitely one of the best RPGs of recent times. The storyline is great and there are so many subplots and quests that you can't count them. Of all the games I've played Baldur's Gate is the one that comes closest to the quality of Ultima VII which I consider to be the best RPG of all time.
