It's nice to see Nameless and Morte and to know that people haven't forgotten them. I adore Planescape: Torment, so it's nice to see those characters still in people's minds.
And Minsc! I loved him in Baldur's Gate 2. I thought he was voiced really well, plus you gotta love a guy who says, "You point, I punch." I like party members who don't give me any lip. :-) I don't remember him as having had amnesia, though. I thought he was far from home, protecting his sorceress and trying to earn his way into the cool guy's lodge (I've forgotten its exact name), but I didn't remember that he had amnesia.

I'm going to second this. Pretty sure Minsc doesn't have amnesia. Cool picture, though. Also, have to give respect to anyone who puts Arcanum on a top 10 list (:

I've heard so many people say that. I finally found it cheap on Amazon and just started it today Somehow I accidentally provoked Morte into biting me to death while I tried to equip a scalpel to fight zombies

yes, I think Amnesia for Minsc was a bit of a stretch, I'll have to think of another title. That did remind me of another great game, especially in atmosphere called "Amnesia, the dark descent " which I never finished because the witcher 2 came out:-) need to get back on that.

Oh, dear. I didn't know you could even DO that. I hope things improve from now on. :-)
I also played the game for the first time just this year -- I don't know how I missed it before -- and I was surprised at how wonderful it was. Then I read somewhere that the CDPR guys localized Planescape: Torment to Poland, so they've been over that game in great detail; that may be part of why The Witcher is so wonderful -- they learned from the best.
If this is your first time playing the game, you might want to check out this list of the best mods for Planescape: Torment; I found the list very helpful in getting an ancient game to look good and run well in 2011.

I started loving RPG's with Baldur's Gate II when I was in high school (I know, I arrived late...). Then played Throne of Bhaal, Baldur's Gate 1, and so on. Last year I bought a DVD set of all BG's and another of Planescape: Torment. I have to say... what a wonderful game PS:T is! It really is a book in game form, and as many have pointed out already, probably the one true computer RPG.
Speaking of PS:T and The Witcher, it would be cool, I guess, if Geralt had different things to say depending on how we develop him and what he remembers.
"Jump on my sword while you can, evil. I won't be as gentle!"
"Go for the eyes Boo, go for the eyes! AARGGHH!!"
PC does not equal Windows. Personal computers run many different operating systems, like GNU/Linux and, why not, Windows. PC games should be available for all major platforms. Let's not be handcuffed and tied to one vendor. Utilize standard, cross-platform technologies!

No, but some games are just so good that the haters can't hate. You know, because the games rock and all that. It's called rockblocking.
Also, everyone who hates Planescape is immediately struck down by a higher power. Some sins just can't be forgiven.

Rweally nice o-o
I love how you just combine all the sketchy lines together and came out so great.
I'm into #4, too. The PC game, both Requiem and Masquerade. xD

Oh, Fall-From-Grace. My favorite character in anything, ever. I even have the background music from the Brothel of Slating Intellectual Lusts as my iPhone ringtone.
Count me a fan of the Modron picture. Poor Modrons don't get enough love, these days ):
