I actually don't know...

I mean the games fun, but I must have played it at least 20 times through!

Yeah, I'm addicted

I've played it... twice. If it was an adventure game I probably would've played it more.

I think it has something to do with being a Star Wars game.

At first I played it over and over to see how the different choices and actions affected the story line. Now I play it when a mod comes out I want to see or when I just want to visit some old friends. I play TSL more than KOTOR, but every once in a while I have to play KOTOR again.

Every once in a while, when a very large and reputable mod comes out, I give one of the KOTOR games a play-through, but not under any other circumstances. Strictly speaking, I don't play it "over and over" again, because the phrase implies not having breathing room.

I played KOTOR when it came out, the game was fun at first, but then I got bored of it fast, which was.... in December 20th 2004, when KOTOR II came out.

I stopped playing KOTOR I that time, and played KOTOR II, I had so much fun with KOTOR II, I had more fun with KII then KI.

So, I played KOTOR I about around... 10 times. I haven't played the game in a LONG time, I don't remember that much from it...

The characters. Seriously, I put the game up for a while as I worked like crazy in another fandom, and got around to reinstalling it.

I forgot how much I adored Mission's good cheer and kind nature. I forgot how much I wanted to pull Juhani into a hug when she surrenders at the grove. I forgot how poetic Canderous was capable of being, and how Carth was really an honest, decent guy once he pulled his act together. I forgot how brittle Bastila truly was, and Vrook's gruff demeanor (though I heckled the screen with "Hey, I'm not gonna be the death of you - that's the OTHER GUY!")

It is a good, solid story. Classically Star Wars in in every sense of the word - epic scope, high adventure, pathos, romance, and humor. I forgot how much I missed it.

I still haven't gotten HK-47's conversation options. I've barely used him till this point. But i'm going to give it another play-through and use him as a main party member.

I never played through it and don't intend to. Just didn't appeal to me, and seeing how this whole place is basically a KotOR forum, I know everybody hates me now.

Nah. I never intended to play it, but then I received it as gift. (I thought it would be discourteous not to play it) I'm guessing you're here because it's currently the most active forum.

That's what we like to call a "+1 post", where the poster clearly has nothing to contribute but posts anyway just to add a numeral to his post count. This is common among obsessive posters, younger posters, and posters with lobotomies. The only cure for this particularly devastating disease is to remove the afflicted user's post count and return it to zero (0).

I have it, played it a bit, and just didn't have fun. I know a lot of work was put into the game, and understand the large fanbase, but I don't really understand why it's like the most popular Star Wars thing to date.

When I said this whole place, I meant LucasForums as a whole because they seem to talk about KotOR modding and stuff more than anything. I just click New Posts to find out what's up and this thread title made me laugh. I'm not bashing it, I just don't get the huge deal over it.

Okay Inyri, so what exactly was YOUR post?

Anyways, I play KotOR multiple times due to humor, killing-sprees, modding and, oh yeah, kill any "free time" I have. Though, just a couple days ago, I did my first full playthrough of the year. I mostly tend to "mod & go", due to bad habits. I almost forgot entirely about the revelation scene with Malak. As I thought when I first completed KotOR, it is still very enjoyable to me.

Well, my number one reason is that I am a gigantic Star Wars fan, so I play my games over and over again and I love them. The second reason is all the modding capabilities. It's always fun to go back and re-experience the game with the newest mods I've accumulated since the last playthrough. It keeps the game semi-fresh.

It's fun, it feels like Star Wars, and you get to be Darth Revan and a play lightside all at once. Lightsabers are just cool. The game was made well, it is captivating and enjoyable.

Kotor was one of the first games I picked up for my Xbox back in the day (Circa 2004), and I can remember getting massacred by the Vulkers and Rakghouls my first play through, and having to retreat and toss frag grenades in order to pick up the win. I replayed the game for the same reason every other Kotor fan has; for fun, but to also play through as a different Class, or walk an alternate path (LS/DS).

The reason why I play KoTOR is because of the modding part. Played and completed it too many times.
The reason why I play TSL is because I like the various things you can do here compared to KoTOR.

Guess we all have our reasons...

K1 has always been what kept me from replaying TSL, which I've only played through twice. KotOR is like a cycle for me. I'll stop playing it (usually after completing it), for about 4,5,6 months. Then, all of a sudden, I'll start getting that special feeling, and, after about a week of thinking about it, I'll pick it up and embark on another 60 hour epic. Thing is, whenever that special feeling kicks in, K1 is always just ahead of TSL in terms of nostalgic longing.

I think it's that I just enjoy K1's atmosphere and characters more than TSL, which is strange because I find TSL's characters more developed in certain respects. I guess I just like Bastila too much . The environments of K1 are certainly more appealing to me, as I find many of TSL's to be a bit uninspired. I think the "dark" atmosphere of TSL sort of sucks the ..well, life out of the environments you visit. In K1 the planets were all so different and colorful. TSL's just feel too dank and miserable for me to even want to visit them. K1 also feels more epic to me. While I appreciate TSL's attempt to convey a darker aftermath to the events of K1, I don't find it quite as gripping as its predecessor.

TSL's horrible flaws toward the end also keep me sticking with K1. I anxiously await Team Gizka, however. As soon as that comes out, I'll certainly be purchasing a PC copy of TSL. I'm positive they will enhance TSL to a new level of greatness.

I play Kotor because each time I play it I get a different adventure. I can be good one time I can be evil one time. I can have a lesbian relationship with a cat woman and I can insult fish people.

I don't. KotoR is a genuinely good game, but it's not Fallout. It's not Baldur's Gate. It's not Deus Ex. The game is linear, the characters aren't all that deep, the dialogue options are limited...I play through KotoR every few years. I think I've played through it thrice.

I must have played this game 30 times through. So many different DS/LS/NPC permutations to go through! I've had this game since '04 and only recently realized how much banter there is between Bastila and Carth. Always something new to discover.

TSL bites the big one. This game is so much better. It satisfies all my kotor needs.

I guess that I just I have played it 20+ times because it is a fun game. You get a pretty good glimpse of what the Star Wars galaxy was like at that time. You learn a lot. It also has a pretty good storyline...

I don't think that I am addicted though. I haven't played KotOR in several months. I have had K1 & K2 for about 2 years...so ya...

Unlike you Rev...I am addicted to kotor. The graphics...the storyline...the heroes and the villians..the romance...the redemptions...it all makes a beautiful game that is really hard to stop playing. i played it for two and a half days straight once.

I'm with Corinth on this one, except I have only compleeted it once, probably has something to do with being unable to play LS.


Checking out seems not to do much.

I'm really not a Star Wars person. Yeah, I watch the movies. Sure, I've played a few of the more popular games (Battlefront, Lego, Unleashed, etc.), but the franchise has never really wrapped me in to the point of obsession. KotOR is different. I don't know if its the d20 system, which appeals to the PnP geek in me, or if it's just the fact that I love Jennifer Hale to death. The story is intriguing, the characters have depth, and the plot twists for both games were original and pleasing. It might have something to do with Bioware, too. Second only to Square, I adore most, if not all, of their games. They're the only reason why I'd ever give the new MMO a chance. Whatever the reason, I can't help but indulge my occasional desire to play these games, whether I play it until the end, or I just finish Peragus and Telos.

Ok, the reason that I play it is because it is like you are actually in one of George Lucas' movies (though Lucas didn't write this story I don't think). That is what is fun. That and just the fact that it is Star Wars and you can be a Jedi, who by the way, is tempted
