    @unmanneddrone Spent a lot of time in Blizzard’s expansions. They were all quality, though I had a ton of fun with Broodwar and Beyond the Dark Portal (the trees are giant mushrooms!) specifically.

    Baldur’s gate was another one. I scratched the Tales of the Sword Coast disk so it would always crash in the Werewolf town, but Durlag’s tower was insane on its own. Throne of Bhaal for BG2 was a great way to end that series, and if you ask me, earned the right to be called “epic”.

    If we’re talking mechs, definitely Desperate Measures, although it always bugged me when the briefing lady said “download” when she clearly meant “upload”. Ghost Bear’s Legacy had you fighting in SPACE! on top of a dropship as well as underwater, and Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries, as a standalone, was simply badass.

    God damn it, I really want to play a mech game now.

    I’d love a return to the days of proper expansion packs. Remember Tales of the Sword Coast? Throne of Bhaal? Lord of Destruction? Falcon’s mission disks? 🙂

    The best ever expansion packs, I think, were for a practically-unknown (and totally Shameworthy) game called Damocles for the Atari ST and Amiga. The game itself was a pretty epic adventure, but the two mission disks for it added some incredibly interesting new challenges to tackle.

    Also, flat-shaded polys for the win.

    EDIT: “Best ever” is a bit strong. They were good, though.
