The 100 Greatest Games | 11 | Planescape: Torment

YEAR: 1999     FORMAT: PC

The 100 Greatest Games | 11 | Planescape: Torment


With voiceovers from John de Lancie, Mitch Pileggi, Dan Castellaneta and'80s popster Sheena Easton, and an adventure that starts on a necrophilia gag, there's a lot to love about this quirky D&D adaptation. But beyond any of its other charms, it's the reality-bending, dimension-hopping storyline that sets Torment apart. Featuring a hero who cannot die, a smart-mouthed floating skull, a burning man, a demonic sexpot and locations spanning the multiverse, Torment's is a twisted tale that makes Lost seem positively simplistic by comparison.

Memorable for...
The game's gruff protagonist, The Nameless One. He ain't pretty but this walking corpse is gaming's most enigmatic leading man, whose shrouded past forms the entire basis for Torment's labyrinthine narrative
