Ten years later, I'm still torn. I can't tell you if I enjoyed Neverwinter Nights. I don't know whether to say that it was my first great gaming disappointment, or tell stories about how its expansions, mods and custom content eventually formed something of a splint for a broken promise.
Have you ever wondered what your doctor thinks about while they're poking and prodding you? If you lived in Edmonton, Canada, in the mid '90s there's a chance your doctor was thinking, "Gee, I wish I was making computer games instead of rummaging inside this diseased colon". At least, that's how it might have played out if you were the patient of Dr Greg Zeschuk, Dr Ray Muzyka or Dr Augustine Yip. And if you had a diseased colon.
