    Even if BG3 were the worst game of the bunch it would still outsell the rest.

    A Beautifully Desolate Campaign Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    But did OP mean in artistic merit or monetarily? I bet Kingmaker will be the best game, yet sell the least.

    But if we use the metric "the largest gap between projected and realized sales, my bet is on Bloodlines 2." It will be also the worst game.

    I'm going with the KC option here, as all will be trash. That said, there will be some redeeming features in each, but praising any of these games is alike to eating a shit sandwich and being thankful there wasn't any dick cheese on it.

    The decline enablers who mill about in the BGIII thread will ask for seconds.

    I don't know what you consider failing, OP, but my vote goes to Baldur's Gate 3. I'm not a Larian hater by any stretch, but right off the bat, they showed they are not willing to even try and deliver gameplay like the first two games. I'm fairly certain the whole game will be weird Minsc jokes and drawn out, boring combat. I think this game will do somewhat underwhelmingly sales wise and it'll also be a very forgettable experience.

    Second choice would be Bloodlines 2. I simply think that it is way too late for a sequel, as well as too late to make an Old World of Darkness game. Even if the best possible people worked on this game, it'd still end up shit. It was doomed to begin with. I don't think it'll be as much a disaster as people seem to think here, it'll just be boring, forgettable shit. The hype, both positive and negative, will make it sell relatively well and the conversation around it will be alive for a time, but give it a year or two, people will forget the game ever even existed.

    Avowed is also something I'm suspicious of ending up mediocre garbage. Still, I have to admit, this one I'm kind of hopeful about.

    Voted Avowed.

    PF: WotR will be glorious :)

    BG3 will survive due to massive number of D:OS2 fan boys and girls.

    Bloodlines 2 will barely survive too because there aren't many games set in WoD.

    Compared to D:OS2 and WoD fans, I suspect there are much less number of fans for PoE universe.

    Bloodlines 2, because vampires are shit now. Baldur's Gate 3 I don't think it will fail because larianfags and bg old fans will play it. Anyways every game in that list is crap. Maybe the Skyrim clone can be interesting for casuals, and if the dumbtubers like and say "oh this so good like skyrim" it can be succesful, though is a turd.

    Bloodlines 2 won't fail, it's got too much momentum, but it will be the most shit.

    Bloodlines 2 will be so woke that it becomes cosmically self-aware.

    fail as in least sales? i'd guess from least to most sales it'll be: km2, bloodlines 2, avowed, bg3
    fail as in shittiest game: larian obviously will be offensively awful in every respect and the rest will probably fall under the "whatever" category with bloodlines 2 having the greatest potential for being

    I'm halfway through Divinity OS right now and it's so fucking boring on the story end I don't know if I can finish it. Unless they hired some better creative types, I'm pretty worried BG3 will be the same. I haven't played OS 2 though, maybe it's better.

    Bloodlines 2 I expect to be janky and lower budget than trailers indicate, so I doubt I'll be as disappointed as I would be otherwise. The "SJW" stuff can be annoying but doesn't trigger me like it does many here. I love immersive sims enough to be very forgiving of their issues.

    Kingmaker was good with some flaws, I expect the second one to be the same.

    Avowed, who fucking knows.

    Depends.
    If this poll about expectations then Cyberpunk 2077 will fail hardest.
    (why is it not even on the list?)

    It's not the genre, its the companies making the games.

    That and the storyfags who buy games from those companies instead of buying a good book.

    Voted kc but like most of the rest don't thing that Kingmaker 2 of BG 3 will end so bad. I don't know anything about Avowed. Bloodlines it is by elimination.

    Which one will fail the most... Bloodlines or Avowed. I'm almost sure both will be sjw trash.

    Which one will fail the least? My bet is Not Baldur's Gate 3 by Larian.

    I am surprised Bloodlines ran away with this so easily. Not that I think it won't be shit (haven't really followed it that much), but how can anything be more shit than Shitmaker 2, D:OS3, or Avowed?

    I am imagining Shitmaker 2 to include not only the kingdom management mode, but also some sort of marriage management mode, where you manage your marriage.

    And D:OS3, I am imagining climbing a ladder in every single combat to get to the one asshole on the roof (cause Larian sure loves its gimmicks), while some novel companion, probably named Kinsc, will yell "go for the nuts, Biff!, go for the nuts!" the whole fucking time.

    And Avowed, of course. Oh boy, ...

    "Go woke, go broke". Not only will it bomb because of that and because the VTM brand is niche, but also because the game will suck on the technical side as well. It's being developed by woke incompetents.
