    Baldur's Gate a fantasy RPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe which is regarded as the RPG that brought new life in a dying genre in the late 90s. Baldur's Gate was developed by BioWare and released by Black Isle Studios in 1998 for Windows, Lunux and Mac. Some of the innovations that Baldur's Gate introduced to the RPG genre are the real-time with pause combat and the high level of character customization. Baldur's Gate was followed by an expansion called Tales of the Sword Coast and by two sequels (so far).
