Symfaer: That would explain this part of my "complaint". Are you sure though? I googled her & couldn't find a confirmation. Might be out of voice acting business, however, with a similar result for BG:EE.
She was over 50 in '98... if she's not dead she's long since retired on an island somewhere, sexually harassing the pool boys.
I'm glad I got the classic editions off GOG before the vultures swept in and managed to REMOVE THE OPTION, "because they wanted to give players the option"... are they daft or do they just think we're daft? Or both?
Obviously they had to do it because there is no reason to buy their editions of these games.

This developer is unbelievably cancerous. But cancer is exactly what you should expect from a company with a SJW agenda.
Have you seen NWN:EE? That's the definition of effortless!

Chirping in just to say that I'm also one of the lucky owners of the classic Infinity Engine games here on GOG. I am so happy with my purchases that I was inviting a friend to register so that he could also buy them... only to find out that he can't anymore, with the sole exception of Icewind Dale II.

He is NOT interested in the Enhanced Editions. He just wants the classic games as they were left by BioWare/Black Isle/Interplay. Why do you have to force him and other new potential buyers to get the EEs when all they want is the classics? It is truly beyond me.

Now I know I will stay away from anything that has the Beamdog logo on it.
man, this enhanced edition thing was a mistake. sigh
Man, no wonder why! I felt so confused when looking for Baldur's Gate Original and swore they were here a year or two ago. And I remember BioWare made but suddenly this company is the owner of the old Dungeons and Dragons games?
Thanks to this forum and your comments, I couldn't believe it. It's REQUIRED for me to buy the Enhanced Editions in order to play the original games?! Which are miles better than what people have said that their 'Politically Correct' version a load of rubbish.

BeamDog was most likely looking at sales of the original version and their 'Politically Correct' and sales favoured the original games and they got jealous and decided to merge them together in order for their version to have meaningful sales.
Which is wrong, but at least people aren't falling their crap and they are only doing one bad thing after another. The only way they can get any shred of decency again is to allow the original versions to be sold SEPARATELY. And put their fingers out and create quality games.

But since this post, that hasn't happened and will never happen. I hope they crumble.
God forbid Beamdog making Baldur's Gate 3.

And someone should tell Beamdog to keep political agendas out of video games in general.
So, anywhere one can purchase BG1 & BG2 + original expansions at a fair price without having to deal with physical media and the subsequent delivery costs, or paying for and being withing ten foot pole range of the ludicrously ridiculous "Enhanced" Editions?

Amazon or eBay, but be prepared to pay way over-bloated prices. Beamdog made sure you can't buy the originals without purchasing theirs. Same with Icewind Dale.

Looking at my games, I am very fortunate to have purchased the original Baldur's Gate II years ago before it combined with their Politically Correct version. But as the previous username said, if you're lucky to find copies of it without paying so much money. Or you can find other ways.
Again, as the user stated. They really have ensured you purchased their version at least.
