  • pretty hand-drawn backgrounds (especially in baldur’s gate 2)
  • bioware sense of humor (before ‘sad weapon’ there was the saga of golden pantaloons)
  • your PC is a snarky piece of shit
  • want to change something? romance unromanceable characters? sell your soul to the devil? there’s a 99% chance there’s a mod for that
