I'm thinking Baldurs Gate. Should I skip that and buy Baldurs Gate II, money is an issue though and I can get the first 1 for half the price. Advice, any other ideas, maybe Red Alert 2?

I don't think it would be that big of a deal if you played BG2 before BG1, or just not play BG1 at all. Both are extremily good games IMO, although BG2 is better.

What frogdog said...You can play either one, but I think playing the second THEN the first would suck...although the second by itself is great, but if you gonna play 2nd the 1st will suck after it :)

Get BG1, its cheap now and bloody good. Then get BG2 which is even better. It will prob take you a couple of solid weeks to complete them too (unlike Elite Force).

I started on 2 and stopped, i want to replay BG 1 to capture the whole spirit of the thing
