old school gaming: Knights of the Old Republic

I have been getting back into some old school games, and after thinking of SWTOR alot, I started playing this game again, oh man how I missed it!

HK-47 ftw!!!!!!

what are your experiences with this amazing gem of a game?

it IS only 10 dollars on steam, so thats always a plus in my books!

My first thought was 'That's old enough to be old-school?' then I realized that it's probably about 7 years old by this point. XD

I had a lot of fun with it back in the day, and have played it through about 3 times. 1 Dark Side, 2 Light Side. Only real gripe I had with it is that the Dark Side choices are the typical bully ones, and lack the true malevolence that other games have shown a PC can have.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

yeah it was abit cheezy for dark side, Jackal, but alot of companies in gaming tried not going down right ape shit on the evilness, they still dont, as thry dont want stupid parents who think videogames make their children violent to cause a shit storm.

Im about to delve back into this wonderful game, as for 10 spare dollars, why wouldnt I buy it again?

I loved the first one and badly wanted to love the second game. That's what really bugs me about those two games is that the first was so good and the second improved on a lot of things but it was rushed out sooner than it should have been and it shows in places, most notably with the removal of an entire subplot involving HK-47.

Though I always did find it annoying that the dark side made you all pale, creepy and old-looking. They could have done it in much better ways.

well you have to remember, one was done by bioware, the second, obsidian Entertainment, IE: bioware who are the geniuses, were not at the helm for 2. Thus it flopped, due to being rushed, where bioware wont release a game until its good and ready (as you can see with SWTOR)

Here is hoping the next KOTOR is as good as the old ones, damn I miss KOTOR one of the best RPG's to ever hit the XBOX. I was also so relieved that they abandoned the movie story line as at that point and even more so now I am horrible sick of Darth vadar and the bunch.
