So apparently I've been living under a rock because I never heard of the Divinity series of games. Usually I just buy one game and play it to death so I guess I miss out on a bunch of titles.

Right now there's a 75+% sale for the older Divinity games. I think I'm going to get them plus King Arthur 1 and The  Witcher 1 and 2.

Has anyone played the King Arthur games? Reviews are all over the map. Apparently Paradox games have bugs.  why so serious?

The first King Arthur game?  I didn't even know there was a sequel.  I liked King Arthur quite a bit.  A lot of that probably has to do with me liking Roman Britain as a setting though.  It was janky but if you're looking for a blend of RPG and strategy then it should be a good match.  Think Total War with more role-playing/heroic elements, such as quests and heroic abilities activated in combat.

The Divinity series is also very good.  I haven't played the earliest ones since they came out in the early 2000s, but I loved them back then.  I remember them looking a lot like UO and early isometric mmos, but if that doesn't bother you, they're solid action rpgs.

Yeah I loved the BG series so I don't think it will bother me, especially since they were graphically enhanced from the original games.

Don't be fooled by the first 3 hours of Divine Divinity (first town + first dungeon). It's a gigantic (really, REALLY big), sprawling game, with good quests, good (albeit sometimes wacky) humor and dialogues. Loot/itemization is all over the place tho. IMO, it bends  a big too much toward warriors.

King Arthur RPG is fantastic, completely worth playing and better than most total war games, I'll say it.

I remember the biggest complaint about the King Arthur games being that after a certain point, bowmen were just insanely overpowered.

I spent more than I wanted but I think I did ok. Got 10 games (Divinity games pre OS, both KA games, Witcher 1+2, Icewind Dale 2 which I didn't know existed lol, and Tropico 5 ). Kinda wish the OS games were 75+% off as well but I think I have enough to keep me busy for awhile. I still haven't finished Majesty 2 yet.

That's just the French bitching in the reviews.

Loved Divine Divinity, one of my favorites of all time. Divinity II was fun, but I'm not sure it's a good game (I ended up with over 70 hours but don't remember much about it).

Beyond Divinity never clicked for me.
