neverwinter nights: there were some modules that were really great as for role playing. and i mean great, not just ok: the witch' wake, the lone wolf, others that i don't remember. but the game itself was lame. too little RPG too much power hunting...
there were some parts on the first baldur's gate that were great too, but that game asmuch as the others of the serie was too much into winkin' at the player with d'n'd settings and quirks that it became an oddity fair. for me it's what turned ugly rpgs... the gold box serie is still better than that imho
