    I wish they'd finish doing Special Editions on PC first. They've done Baldur's Gate I and II and Icewind Dale I but still no sign of Icewind Dale II.

    Andd for that matter updating the games they already have. BGI allows you to pick more colours and soundsets for your character. No idea why they haven't bothered adding the same to BGII?

    I'd rather see updated versions of the Gold Box games.

    Not sure how a game like Baldurs Gate would work on a console with a controller. Already have them on PC so no reason for me to get them on console.
