Baldur's gate 1 you can get by with tank and spank.

Baldur's gate 2 you fight some of the most fearsome creatures ranging from demi-gods, liches, dragons and etc.

You actually have to use your brain, preparation and proper strategy to overcome those bosses.

Man Baldur's gate 1 is so ridiculously easy compared to Baldur's gate 2.

If you use SCS, there are a few battles that are difficult. The last battle and a few others.
... even on Earth Mode.

Baldur's Gate 1 is still the better game imo.

I think I've started baldur's gate like 3 times cause I f***ed up my builds in some way. I like playing games blind, but this one ... eh.
It's important to know what the rules are first, so that, when you decide to break them, you can better judge the effect.

The EE must have really screwed with the game balance, because OG BG1 is pretty difficult early on, and pretty difficult at the end, with "tank and spank" only being viable around level 4 or so, but not against boss encounters or the endgame.

And BG2 eventually starts showering you in +4/+5 equipment and more gold than you could imagine what to do with. It gets a bit easy at that point.
Year-by-year analysis of the finest gaming has to offer, and (eventually) more!

OG BG1 was tough. Kits and EE NPC make it easy though. Just the changes in engine make melee much better.

Took me 10 years from 2002 to 2012 to finish my first game of 1. Then I realized I wanted a fighter mage class so I restarted. I think I'll just collect all the attribute books and export my character.
No time for games so I twitch. Youtube is good. Two monitors at any one time. My graphics card ist krap.

BG1 is harder than 2, don't know what you're talking about. I've never played the enhanced editions if that makes any difference, but the original versions should always be the point of reference. I like both equally for different reasons.
Geforce GTX whatever, i7 something or rather, some sticks of ram, an SSD and a Hard Drive with stuff on it.
