Recommendation: let's fry this Meatbag with a flamethrower.

They might also want to get SWTOR: Revan the novel so that certain questions can be answered.

I've played both and loved them. I lost count of how many times I've replayed them both. I won't lie and say I love SWTOR compared to them but it's still a really fun game for me.

I've played through both parts of KOTOR. Loved them.

No, He didnt, and he keeps tabs on his enemies

Played both, absolutely loved the second one, first one was meh to me but I still enjoyed it, then I discovered the magic of patches and played KOTOR 2 with the lost content patch, my god the second game ruled.

I have, probably the best games I've ever played, second(ish) to SWTOR. I think its really important that people play the first games before they play SWTOR. It fills in so many of the gaps, and its a really great game. Playing SWTOR without playing KOTOR is like watching episode 3 before watching 1 and 2 (do I hate people who do that)

Also it helps you understand the importance of characters such as Revan and Meetra (and also why fans go crazy at any mention of HK-47) It also does the whole lightside/darkside thing really well. It also has some really great characters, who I'm afraid are often a lot better voiced than those in SWTOR - such as the awesome Kreia.

Only thing is, now I've played SWTOR I don't think I could ever go back to a game that isn't fully voiced!

Not sure about the importance of comics, what period do they cover?

Thats also a point, I've read it and it filled in a lot of questions about 'what happened to Revan in the unknown regions' which is a big and recurring question in KOTOR and KOTOR II

Yep, played it. Plan to play Sith Lords in the near future too now that it's on Steam.

Played both loved them, the thing I miss the most is the d20 system. Maybe I'm just an old school guy but I grew up playing AD&D and loved having a system that I was mostly familiar with.

I don't like how your weapon choice is imbedded with your advanced class in this game. There's a ton pof things I miss about the old system, but I heard it's not very compatible with MMOs.
