Planescape: Torment Complete

I first played Torment some time in my teens, probably around 1997, and I loved it, but never finished it for various reasons:

- Initially, I reached a part of the game I couldn't progress through, and quit.
- Later, fan-made patches fixed the problems that stopped me progressing, but I was so in love with the game so far that I was worried that the ending would ruin the game for me.

I finished the game about 20 minutes ago, having decided last month that I had to do so before Torment: Tides of Numenera comes out (still a year or two away).

I was underwhelmed by the ending - but that's what 15 years of buildup will do to a story. Having gone back and played through the end a few different ways, it's actually a great ending for the game, if a bit abrupt, and the content before and during the end is awesome.

So, 15 years to finish my favourite game. Not bad!
