    Even though I completely agree with OP and every single criticism of Divinity Original Sin 1 & 2, none of this changes the fact that Swen Vincke is the greatest Belgian that ever lived.

    Sure, but "greatest Belgian that ever lived" might very well be the single worst title ever bestowed.

    Lionheart was much more annoying. It had a relatively passable start, but the rest of the game never followed that it. D:OS is just boring after a while, that's more tolerable.

    This could actually be true. My first thought was obviously the famous mathematician Jacques Tits. A short quote from Wikipedia "He introduced Tits buildings, the Tits alternative, the Tits group, and the Tits metric." An outstanding body of work.
    But it turns out that he left Belgium and adopted another nationality, doping the Belgian one. I guess he was not only a gifted mathematician but also had good common sense.

    There's no massive nosedive, but I agree the novelty starts to wear off by the time you finish Cyseal. The latter parts are still good if you like their style. My biggest issue was the constant silly humor and dialogue. It's just not really my thing.

    Like millions of people before him, the guy played it and didn't like it. He had the misfortune of doing it on a YouTube video, so he will be shat on for posterity.

    If I were to play the devil's advocate, I would also point out he played the Nintendo Switch port. I personally tried the Beandog Android port of BGEE and it was atrocious. If the quality is consistent throughout different platforms, I can see legitimate reasons for not enjoying IWDEE on the Switch.

    He got filtered because, even on Story Mode, you can't hit certain monsters with nonmagical weapons. IIRC, he also complains because it's too hard to "equip magic".

    At one point, it stops being about you not enjoying the game and it starts being about you displaying your retardation with pride.

    He probably thought that it was a good one though, exposing his mighty intellect.

    It's quite ironic that people are arguing about which is worse, D:OS or Kingmaker in a thread started by a guy who hates them both.

    > Less sales
    > Lower metascore
    > Less players

    It's a convoluted tranny/SJW game made for autists with no life.

    It's a tough argument. On one hand, D:OS has the worst writing ever, quite literally, reinforced by annoying NPC chatter, stupid plot, etc. There is no individual element of Shitmaker that's as bad as the writing/humor in D:OS.

    On the other hand, D:OS has some good parts, like the combat before you get to the last maps, some of the quests (if you ignore the writing), the game engine, etc. I can't think of anything good in Shitmaker.

    So I guess it's a question of do you prefer all around mediocre shit OR occasional flashes of goodness mired in REALLY TERRIBLE shit?
