    Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, Icewind Dale, Icewind Dale 2, Konung Legends of the North, Konung 2 Blood of Titans, and Planescape: Torment are the infinity engine games. Planescape Torment is very different, but I recommend playing it. I'm doing my first playthrough now. I've never played the Konung games.

    Beyond that Neverwinter Nights and Neverwinter Nights 2 share similarities with BG but are not isometric RPGs. The Diablo series is Isometric and enjoyable but not D&D based and are more action RPGs. The original fallout and Fallout 2 are similar to Baldur's Gate in many ways, but are not fantasy, highly recommended. Also highly recommend The Temple of Elemental Evil, which is based on D&D 3.0 and is a turn-based game. It's buggy as hell though so install the Circle of Eight mods that to fix everything.

    Never heard of Konung or Konung 2 either. There's probably a reason that none of us have heard about it. The reviews for it are pretty bad.

    35/100 on metacritic for sequel. About the same for 1st one. http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/konung-2

    I never trust reviews sometimes ppl have different opinions about things so I always test games out for myself.

    Arcanum has some genuinely amazing stuff, but it's nauseatingly ugly and combat is unspeakably awful. It's a very mixed bag, worth keeping this in mind. I would recommend Torment since you already have it.

    Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader and Kult: Heretic Kingdoms also have some similar qualities.

    It's much newer by comparison, but The Neverwinter Nights 2 expansion "Mask of the Betrayer" is a fully realized game in its own right (and I don't even think you need NWN2 to play it). Although it's not isometric, it's the only Forgotten realms game I've seen that matches the BG series in character and narrative depth. Awesome game.

    Inquisitor - dark scenery and medieval times. Already waiting for me on GOG but didn't tried it yet but read a lot of positives. Also one funny review that said something like: "a lot of texts to skip....", how can reviewer even say something like that?

    Edit: I will add also NOX, recently heard it's pretty good, but again never actually played.

    Edit2: I remembered another game before dragon ages but so so similar called Drakensang was good with fine way of spending experience instead of gaining a levels.

    NOX is an awesome game. I would recommend it though its more action oriented than storyline oriented (there is a story its just not exceedingly strong).

    You do gain levels in Drakensang though beforehand you can also spend points upgrading yourself as well.

    I'd say baldur's gate enhanced edition is pretty similar.




    I'll leave now.

    There is nothing like Baldur's Gate.

    Though, Siege of Avalon is an enjoyable game no one mentioned - and likely no one knows.
