D&D Games Pt 2 3x3

Last week we took a sprint through the early history of Dungeons & Dragons in video games, following the franchise from its earliest digital adaptations up through the years it spent under the watchful eyes of Strategic Simulations, Inc. This week, we pick up where left off, pressing onward through the remainder of the 1990s and into the modern age.

This, of course, brings us into proximity with what could arguably be named as the most influential period of D&D games: the era of the Infinity Engine. Baldur's Gate, PlaneScape: Torment, Icewind Dale; while perhaps not as formative as some the Gold Box games, the fingerprints of these franchises are apparent on RPGs even today.

So with no further exposition, I invite you to gather your party and venture forth into the history of Dungeons & Dragons in the modern era of video games.
