i couldn't do it. i just couldn't do it. like i understand the game is story focused and not combat-heavy, but reading through paragraph upon paragraph of useless dialogue doesn't for a good game make. like all the beggars had identical dialogue, i could threaten them or outright kill them which was cool the first time, but whats the point? the world was so fucking dull i couldn't bring myself to wander aimlessly talking to every npc even if i wanted to.

Yeah gameplay is piss poor. It was conaidered abysmall back in the day, it's not better nowadays.

This game sold 10,000 physical units.
When you hear that this game isn't for everyone, they mean it.
>>
>>323185234
the problem isn't just the reading, it's the fact that for the 50% of the game where you're not reading, you're just sitting there watching your party walk between npcs, or stuck in the godawful combat. there's barely even any gameplay associated with the reading either. 95% of the time getting the best results from dialogues is just a matter of starting the game with 18 wisdom and then picking the wisdom option every time it appears on the list.

also most of the reading is pretentious garbage where avellone uses the npcs as mouthpieces for his edgemaster shit.
>>
>>323180079
Anon I had a similar problem with the game when I first started as well.

There is only one piece of advice I can give you. Just keep playing through it, it gets better.

This game, Baldur's Gate, Fallout 1-2 are all boring as fuck. People liked them because there was literally nothing else to play on PC at the time.

2bhfam the entire first third of the game is literal FedEx quests in the city of Sigil. It doesn't actually get good until the game progresses enough to allow you to exit that place.

What does this even mean? Who in Torment acts as a mouthpiece? Which lines are "edgemaster"? And what part of the game is pretentious?
>>
>>323180079
I don't remember another game other than this and Fallout 1 (maybe 2? Don't remember) where you can literally talk the big bad into killing themselves/merging with you if your Wisdom and Charisma were high enough. Nothing lets you do that anymore.

Granted, ME1 you could talk Saren into blowing his brains out but you still had to have a bossfight with Sovereign.

It's shallow writing and shallow gameplay.

Don't play a game expecting good writing.
>>
I'm still in Sigil as well, and the town as a whole has been pretty boring. The main things keeping me going are the fact that I invested an hour or two just installing mods coupled with how much I liked the tutorial area. At first the wards didn't seem interesting (info dumps before you've built an interest in the setting always suck), but I loved how there was so many little things you could do or say. Going through it expecting the same level of effort as most of the RPGs I've played would've made me miss a ridiculous amount of experience and items. Every time I go back there I find something I missed.

I just picked this up. Really digging it so far, spent a bit of time finishing some quests before I made it to Pharod's Court. Should I be a mage by now? I switched to thief but I'm starting to regret it because I seem weaker and I don't know how the stats work when I level up
Gonna play some more today and see if I can make it through this catacomb or whatever.

Gotta talk to the hag in the zone west of the mortuary. She'll send you on a quest and then can teach you magic allowing you to be a mage.

I liked mage cuz some spells wreck shit, and a lot of the party members can compliment a mage main. That being said, it's totally player preference. Usually people play with high Wis and Int so mage just makes sense.

I swear if I would show a page from "Crime and Punishment" you would say the same shit. You should read more and probably start from children's books.

You're playing a game that's well known to be flooded in dialogue, and you're complaining about the dialogue? You're a special one, aren't you?

The fun in the game is actually the reading. I got annoyed every time I had to fight.

Why did you even installed old shit on your PC? New games are superior by definition. If you want an actually good game, try BioWare clasics, like their older masterpiece, Dragon Age: Inquisition.
