So I'm almost 40 hours into this game, currently in the underdark getting the eggs for Adalon the dragon. Honestly I'm finding it a bit of a slog now, the gameplay is pretty good but the story so far is very forgettable and I'm getting pretty burnt out on it already.

It probably didn't help that I spent like 20 or so hours in chapter 2 doing every side quest I could find. Anyways, it's been an enjoyable enough experience so far but I'm losing the will to go on. Am I close to the end? Also is the rest of the game worth pushing through?

I realize I'm probably coming across as being overly negative to the game but that's not my intention. It's been a fairly worthwhile adventure so far but this far in I'm losing interest.

After the Underdark, it's maybe 5-10 more hours. You fight Bodhi, go through one more area, and then fight a few more bosses. The Underdark is fairly long, but you can skip it.
... even on Earth Mode.

What were you ‘slogging’ through for 20 hours for?
"Why are you always smiling?"
"'Cause it's all so f***in' hysterical."

Probably because pretty much everyone talks about how amazing this game is, so waiting to see when that would happen.

Game is painfully mediocore. It's Dragon Age 2 - almost all the time is doing errands around the city. But DA2 got s*** on for that, BG2 is a masterpiece!

Thrown the Ball is even worse.

But yes TC since the majority of the game is sidequests in the city, now that you're done that, you're going to overpower pretty much everything that's left and cruise.

I said I enjoyed it well enough but it's become a slog. Plus the games legendary status made me want to push through a bit.

That BG series is best enjoyed as 'a couple of hours here and there', not a marathon.

Weird. There are other games that I can marathon without losing interest. Odd that a legendary series would need to be piecemealed...

Did you take the time to enjoy the character development, chat to the NPC's? read the books lying around the world?

Or did you min/max it?
