    KOTOR gets my vote. I like the second game well enough, but you just can’t beat the story of Revan.

    Best games for Star Wars ever released, I'm kinda hoping the Rian Johnson / GOT series ended up being in a similar vein and time frame as these games. Early Jedi and Sith that what we've been used to!

    Wrong, Rebel Strike was the best SW game.

    KOTOR I and II was my "Original Trilogy" moment that so many had back when Star Wars released in 1977. It was playing those games when I was young that really cemented me as a Star War fan for life. They both had such different feels that is hard to compare them but my vote goes to KOTOR II. They feeling you get playing that game is so dark, tense, and at times even depressing. Obsidian takes not get near enough credit for the big chance they took with presenting a Star Wars story in that fashion. Great characters and the shadow war between the Jedi and the Sith is something that has not been replicated since.

    Also it did a better job developing Revan as an interesting character than his own game did.

    I voted KOTOR 1 but just barely. What I really want is a HD remake with new levels (HK factory), The option to have turn based combat or live action like Dragon age so it has broader appeal without betraying what the originals were and a trailer for KOTOR 3. So not much to ask for

    KOTOR I because you actually are ***SPOILERS*** Revan, former Sith Lord and Jedi Prodigal to be (unless you finish the Dark Path and become resurgent Dark Lord). The story, gameplay and characters of KOTOR ard too me as iconic as the Original/Classic Trilogy. Revan has made ripples in the galaxy, even inspiring Kylo Ren’s mask.

    KOTOR II for me suffers mainly due to glitches and bugs that weren’t ironed out before it was released on Xbox. The premise of you being the last Jedi was intriguing, and Darth Nihilus has his own cult following among cosplayers.

    However, even if KOTOR II was devoid of bugs, Revan’s story in KOTOR would always be my favorite. I have fond memories of searching the lower depths of Taris, helping the Wookiees on Kashyyyk, and killing Kath hounds on Dantooine.

    Welcome to the Cantina!

    On the subject at hand...I'd say KOTOR 1 overall. The story, characters, and replay value at the time was legendary, even for someone like me who didn't get the chance to play it until 2015.

    On the other hand, KOTOR 2 as Kreia and customization. I have the guidebook for KOTOR 2 and as a kid I would spend HOURS daydreaming about creating my own lightsabers in the game despite not being able to play it.

    I prefer Kotor 2 even though it suffers from rushed development, cut content (even the mod doesn't fix everything), and no real ending; none of which are Obsidian's fault. I like the darker atmosphere and I think the characters and story have more depth and nuance than Kotor 1; overall I think the writing is far better than in Kotor 1. That being said, I think Kotor 1 has one of the greatest revelations (I don't really consider it a twist) in gaming history. Both are great games and on my "favorite of all time" list.

    Xbox had some real problems. Halo 2 was finished and then the entire game crashed and they lost two years of work and had to rush to recreate it (that’s why the campaign wasn’t as good Halo CE). It makes me wonder if KOTOR II had a similiar hiccup and it was rushed due to similiar problems as Halo 2.

    I voted Kotor 2. Mainly because with Kotor 1 I finished and moved on, while Kotor 2 intrigued me for some time with the restoration mod and all the possibilities it could bring.

    I prefer KOTOR I because the story is so SW: it has the mood, locations, characters, and more. I will always love it because my favorite all time SW character, Revan/Darth Revan was born in that game.

    KOTOR II never made much of a impression on me because my Xbox copy was super buggy, freezing often, and I got stuck and could not progress in the game because of a glitch. I did see the potential with the fantastic Darth Nihilus and the more complex choice+consequences system.
