I have no idea what you just said, but don't you just fucking hate how you know the entire plot of the whole thing before even playing the game, and everyone does too?
"BG" 3 is shit and I won't play it, but the way these games are presented nowadays is additionally disgusting.
It's a serious contender for why games have lost all their magic. Even if you are totally blind to a game going into it, just looking at a Steam page for it douses you in an overload of information that makes it really hard to get that "just finding a game in a shop in the 90s and glancing at the back of the box" experience.
However in the case of BG3 I don't think it matters much, what made me hate this game was not reading about it, but actually playing it when it first came out in EA. The actual game is what is so awful, not too much info about it. Before I played it, I thought, "Hey, this should at least be moderately entertaining!" as someone who thought D:OS had all the building blocks of a proper turn-based D&D game. It's funny to look back on my naivete that a more easy to use D:OS toolset could lead to a NWN style renaissance of custom D&D-style turn-based content, I was far too naive on how cucked Larian was about to get.
