    Both POE and Kingmaker look like shit when compared to BG and IWD.

    So I don't care.

    Why bother with thread like this when we know we are not going to get anything resembling the old games?

    It's gonna be 3D, probably cartoony or "indie" looking. Everything is.

    I'd want the RPG systems to be better, but I'd be fine with the Dragon Age Origins hybrid style. 3D with third-person camera for walking around, pull back to "isometric" for battle (be it turn-based or RtwP).

    If I've learned anything from interacting with weebs over the years, is that 2D is always superior

    What's wrong with you, people? Why are you making all these polls without a KingComrade option? Are you against democracy or something?

    Nothing can beat IWD and IWD2 backgrounds. God, I wish we could get more of those beautiful atmospheric scenes in BG3, but I know I am asking for the impossible. D:OS and D:OS 2 looks cool, but not a single environment or background stuck with me, everything looks bland and very forgettable to me. On the other hand, I remember fondly almost every area in IWD and IWD2.

    Going from 2D to 3D with Neverwinter Nights was a mistake.

    I don't particularly care if it is 2d or 3d but if 3d I want a fixed perspective for sure tired of all the rotation after playing through grim dawn.

    This may be me reading too much in to something minor but from one of the videos Swen did on gamespot he said "this is the first representation of the city of Baldur's Gate entirely in 3D" now I don't know if he was referring to only the cinematic itself or if he meant the game as a whole.

    There's literally zero chance this game is in 2D. They tripled their staff from Divinity DoS 2, which was already 3D.

    I agree, also I don't think Google would want a niche 2D game as one of their flagship products on Stadia.

    Meh. I lamented the move from 2D to 3D for a long time, because it was such a sharp step backward and would take a long time to catch up. But I think that period has finally ended in the last few years.
