Storyline

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. The young ward of mystical monk Gorion, whose name, sex, race and class are defined by the players, lives in the keep of the monk order Gorion belongs to. He or she has never been outside or known anything about his/her parents. One night, the ward has a disturbing nightmare. In the morning, Gorion sends the ward away for his/her protection. The ward is joined by her/his best friend Imoen, a skillful thief. Their adventure soon takes a dark turn when they witness Gorion's murder by a strange man in the forest. After some adventuring, the ward meets Jaheira, a half-elf fighter and druid, and her beloved husband Khalid, both of whom are old friends of Gorion. They offer help and a goal - to investigate the suspicious shortage of iron ore that has befallen the land recently and made everyone paranoid ...

Trivia

The mystery behind the purpose of Golden Pantaloons, a popular infamous seemingly-useless unique item from Baldur's Gate 1, is actually reveled in Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal, the expansion pack for Forgotten Realms: Baldur's Gate II - Shadows of Amn. However, in order to find out what this item does, the player must keep it in his or her inventory throughout BG 1, import his or her main character into Baldur's Gate 2, pick the item up along with the rest of his/her BG 1 inventory in Irenicus' Dungeon, be evil towards Welther during the Buried Alive quest in BG 2, use those turned to stone in the Throne of Bhaal expansion and eventually visit Amkethran.

Probably the best RPG ever !

There are lots of RPG among VG, some good and some really bad. But BG I is probably the Greatest. It's a masterpiece. The storyline is awesome, the freedom of choices and moves ( often a problem in RPG ) are huge and the realization is brilliant ( the voices are funny for most characters and creepy for the bad guys, the visuals are awesome ) . The scene were the main character learn is true identity in the library is really distressing and the twists are unexpected and huge. But what make this game unique are all the quest that the player may accomplish in more of the main quest. I can't write more.

Really brilliant 10/10
