Are all 5 made by BioWare?
I can't just list 5, these are basically all equally favorite, with Torment, BG and KoTOR being the top and the rest being a notch below.
1) Planescape: Torment - Black Isle
2) Baldur's Gate 1/2 - Bioware
3) Knights of the Old Republic 1/2 - Bioware/Obsidian
4) Fallout 1/2 - Interplay
5) System Shock 2 - Irrational Games
6) Mass Effect 1/2/3 - Bioware
7) Deus Ex - Ion Storm
8) Icewind Dale 1/2 - Black Isle
9) TES 3: Morrowind - Bethesda
10) Neverwinter Nights 1/2 - Bioware/Obsidian
I haven't always been anti-bethesda. I played the living shit out of Morrowind. Hundreds and hundreds of hours. Oblivion and Fallout 3 both lost me between 20 and 30 hours in. I've been told Skyrim is worth playing, maybe someday when it's really cheap. I think as I get older, though, open world games interest me less and less, I need story over character building and grinding, so I don't expect I'll get into it.
I think the best trailer I saw today was for Heart of the Swarm (the opening cinematic for the SC2 expansion, it was pretty awesome).
