Player-Improved Games

I was on today and I read a how-to on improving Baldur’s Gate 1 & 2 by updating them for modern systems, but also adding back in content the developer removed from the final version of the games. I think this is kind of a cool thing for players, especially in cases where a game is unpolished and released and the developer has given up on it for one reason or another. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 is such a game. Although, a fan-made update was just mentioned in the latest issue of PC Gamer, I downloaded the updates a few months ago. Another game I did this for was Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. I purchased it from Steam and then applied the update which some fans created to add-in deleted content and improve the game.

It’s great that fans of games take the time to fix broken games or bring classic games up-to-date. This is one of the reasons PC gaming is better than anything else.
