Wow, this sucks.  I can't possibly pick between the two.  Planescape: Torment had one of the best stories ever, Baldur's Gate II had some of the best RPG gameplay I ever experienced.


I 'spose I'll have to go with:

Baldur's Gate 2, although I've died a little inside because of it.  I always considered both to be equals for different reasons.

Baldur's Gate II

that's a very tough decision though...PS:T is an amazing story and great use of the Planescape world.  i've gone with BG2 in the end, however, just because of the sheer scope of that game.  while PS:T tells one of the best RPG stories i've ever experienced, i think the massive world in BG2 makes it a more impressive accomplishment overall.  they've both exceptionally good games though...two of my all time favorites.

BG2 is not even in the same category when it comes to immersion or story or originality.

Half-Life is still the superior game.  But since I have to choose between those two I'll go with Planescape.
