[Happy Birthday!] Planescape: Torment


This is one of the few games I had original and in big box back in the heyday and I bought Planescape: Torment riding the wave of the enthusiasm for the RPG genre that at the end of the millennium was healthy more than ever, led by two sacren monsters like Diablo II and Baldur’s Gate II (I was on the Baldur’s party) and flanked by great games like Icewind Dale. Torment was maybe more loyal to D&D mechanics even though visually maybe conceded something to the competitors, but it was an epic game anyway I’ve always been pleased to play. Maybe even today that turns 20, having been released on December 12th, 1999.

Happy birthday!


Uno dei pochi giochi originali e in big box che avevo ai tempi d’oro, Planescape: Torment lo acquistai sull’onda dell’entusiasmo per il genere RPG che sul finire del millennio era in salute più che mai e trainato da due mostri sacri come Diablo II e Baldur’s Gate II (io ero nel partito Baldur’s) e affiancato da gran giochi come Icewind Dale. Torment era forse più fedele alle meccaniche D&D, anche se graficamente forse pagava qualcosa alla concorrenza ma era sempre e comunque un gioco epico che ho sempre giocato con estremo piacere. Magari anche oggi che compie vent’anni, essendo stato rilasciato il 12 Dicembre, 1999.

Buon compleanno!
