World of Warcraft may be ruling the kingdom of role-playing games right now, but its massive campaigns and addictive missions take a page out of this PC game from 2000. Baldur's Gate II was a monster of a game, stuffing dozens of hours of dungeon crawling and looting within a winding but still digestible plot. It served BioWare well later on, when they took their talents to the South Beach of video game development—third-person shooters—and created a little indie franchise called Mass Effect.
