Thanks for the comments,

Thanks for the comments, guys. As much as I love this game, I definitely don't think it's for everyone. Lots of folks would be turned away by all the reading you need to do. Others might be put off by the dark overtones or graveyard humor. I heard some pretty scathing criticism (that I don't agree with, obviously) that there's not nearly enough focus on combat or action.

I've been slogging through FF IV on my DS and, man, it is the opposite. Every few seconds you're in another random encounter. It takes hours to get from plot point to plot point. Grind, grind, grind. Boooo-ring. With PS, on the other hand, you can advance several levels just by going around doing quests that involve literally nothing but reading and making some intelligent dialog decisions.

That said, I still prefer Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. It's one of only 2 or 3 CRPGs that I've actually beaten twice. In fact, I think I may have beaten it three times. It's really that good. :)

Anyway, I'm sure glad you guys liked the video!
