I've kicked the tires on Pillars a few times. The writing is nice but like TW3, it suffers from lack of gameplay or at least cumbersome gameplay. It's hard to put my finger on what exactly didn't grab me about it. I loved the Baldur's Gate series years ago but this somehow didn't have the magic. In fact, my lack of enjoyment of it has made me hold off on buying other games like Tyranny. If we could have the writing of Pillars with the mechanics of D:OS in say a modernized Dragon Age engine....now that would be amazing! I should add that I didn't particularly enjoy playing D:OS alone. I find many of the themes to be kind of infantile and there's too much stuff in it that supposed to be cute or funny which just isn't.

I think PoE is a very good game but I don't think it is an all-timer, unfortunately. I made it pretty far in the game but I haven't completed it yet . . .that generally doesn't happen with all-timers.

Pillars is the only game like this i've played in the recent past. Really liked the atmosphere and story but it ended up feeling pretty... drole. The playable characters were boring, there was WAY too much reading (felt like lots of filler talk), and yea just didn't grab me.

Maybe i'll try this first one out.
Can you spare some cutter, me brother?

Having almost finished DOS2, can someone recommend a good coop game to play with great story line? (played DOS2 with partner via LAN and it was great!)
