I voted for BG2. Great story and the npcs are wonderful and well developed. Too bad ToB seemed short in comparison to Tales of the Sword Coast though.

It was a hard choice between Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale. One of the criteria that swayed my vote to Baldur’s Gate was being able to have different types of npcs in your party and all the different types of quests you can under take. Plus that kindly old dwarf, Yeslick is in it.

SoA + ToB, definitely. When I first played it, I was all like "w00t, this is way better than the first!!1". ;D :wub
Icewind Dale 1 & 2 is nice and all, but I still prefer a lot more the BG series. And I haven't had a chance (yet) to play Planescape: Torment. :(

My favorite game is BG2. I love the npcs that can join your party. They were well developed and their voice actors were well chosen.

 BG2, for the level of NPC interaction.

Baldur's Gate. It was the game that started it all. It reminds me of the old days of PnP. I like all of the quests. major and minor ones, that you can take. It had a lot of different types of npcs that could join your party. Plus it didn't have a bunch of overkill weapons and other items in it.

The answer is obvious, BG2 8)
Evil hidden everywhere
Evil has a chilling stare
Null and void of any care
Is where the answer lies
It does no good to beg or cry
It does no good to question why
It does no good it never dies
Evil never dies

Unmodded, I would have chosen BG2. But seeing how this is a modding forum, I voted for BG+TUTU+BG1NPC. The game canvas is fantastic, and the combination demonstrates the best fusion of developpers' and modders' work.

The IE game with the most potential is IWD2. Properly modded it would definetly be a better game than BG1/BG2.

I don't like PS:T.

IWD1. It was the first IE game I've played and remains my favorite. Sure it might not have as much character development as the other IE games, but world interaction and feeling is great. BG1 comes as a very close second. PS:T is the last on the list because despite the character development and RP-ing doesn't really mend down with the other IE games due to lack items.
Oh, and the poll is a bit flawed. It should have been specified if this is about unmodded versions of the games or not
In my opinion: IWD1=BG1>BG2=IWD2>PS:T.

Surrender or be squished!

BG2. Mods! Killer items! Decent story!

I do not know Ps:T or IWD1 but I love all the others for different things.

BG1 because of its awesome scenario. I find it way better than BG2's, plus you have the surprise of your heritage.
BG2 because of its technicality: banters, NPC-related quest, kits...
IWD2 because it can become really funny/challenging/bloody with all the dual classes possible.

If I was to choose thought, event if I never played Tutu, my voice would go to BG1: it is the first IE game I've played and it has Dynaheir :wub

IWD - it's quiet (no annoying and inappropriate NPC banters) and hack 'n slash ftw.  :lilly
When a man speaks and there is no woman to hear him, is he still wrong?

For the faithful romantic, no explanation is necessary. For the unbeliever, no explanation is possible.
