Dear Fellow Arcanum Fans, A long time ago, I was addicted to Baldur's Gate, but really I was addicted to Candlekeep. I would make a character, play it for a minute and then start again... for ever. My older brother and I would play on the old xbox and at any possible opportunity I would vote to start again, again. Starting again forever was my motto. I explain this as one part perfectionism and one part Taoism, where the very small changes at the beginning make all the difference. Oh, and two parts obsessive compulsive disorder. Anyway, Candlekeep was forgotten when I got Arcanum. So many characters to create. So many different plotlines to follow. So many options for character points. *Drool* I went from 'Candlekeep Forever' to 'Crash Site Forever' overnight. Now, so far this is merely evidence for my own disorders, but, around 2007, I discovered a gaming magazine with a retrospect of Arcanum, voted by readers as the most replayable game of all time. It described the OCD and near-nervous breakdowns of the Troika crew as they programmed possibilities above and beyond the call of Sierra. Eg, "Did it really matter what happened if the player found the BMC mines before talking to Bates? We thought so." Since then I feel vindicated, if not by the replayability of the game, then at least by the evidence that I was not alone in my obsessive addiction. I have played through to Kergan hundreds of times over the last decade, and I have started again thousands and thousands of times. Even accounting for the several times I had to buy new copies of the game, I have definitely gotten my money's worth. Cheaper by the hour than a Chinese prostitute. Anyways, I've been meaning to share this story with the few people on earth who may empathise for some time now, and figured I'd make an effort for my ONE THOUSANDTH POST. Wheeee! Crash Site Forever!
