We all hate Baldur's Gate 3, however some of us have valid reasons to do so.

Example of a valid reason: the dumb past tense dialogue

Example of a retarded reason: because it's not RTWP


Personally I think it's going to be better than the Original Sin games if only due to it no longer using Larian's broken system, however the fact that it looks like a D:OS 2 mod and the dumb past tense dialogue kinda kill it for me. While we're lucky that we don't have another Fallout 3 on our hands I'm not thrilled about D:OS 2.5 either.

    other (please specify) - The live presentation was flat out boring with the game's pacing looking awful. A big chunk of it was spent playing 1 battle, and sorting 1 trap.

I don't hate it (yet), but thematically, tonally and aesthetically it doesn't feel like D&D. Which is a bigger issue than it not resembling Baldur's Gate, since it was quite obvious it was going to be a brand-new D&D game that merely used the Baldur's Gate name for brand recognition.

Though I will say that after months of interviews about how they were planning to modify (read: butcher) the D&D ruleset I was expecting a lot worse gameplay-wise.

I don't care if it's TB or RTWP. I don't even care that it looks like D:OS3. But my god the dialogue is HIV and cancer combined! :what:

I don't. It looks nothing like Baldur's Gate though, if they didn't call it BG3 you wouldn't be able to tell it's supposed to be BG3 from what they've shown so far, probably not a good sign for anyone who wanted another BG game.

I don't hate it at the moment.

My biggest objection is that it looks - and feels - like another DO:S game, when it's supposed to be DnD-inspired title and BG3 and I am not the fan of how player's dialogue is being handled.

I have no idea how Larian managed to get more retarded writing in every single, subsequent game they release. Divine Divinity was silly, it wasn't really meant to be taken seriously and there were some moments where the game actually achieved atmosphere. The quarantined, coronavirus town that you could go into, for example. I can't play Original Sin because I just cringe at the dialogue too much, I have another try scheduled asking a mate of mine which of the newer games resembles Divine Divinity mostly, with his answer being OS2. Another thing is the absolutely garbage art direction that is especially apparent in OS 1 and 2. I mean, Divine Divinity was gorgeous, there were some things that were cliche but nothing was downright retarded.
Again, how do you go from this:

I might be a boomer who thinks that the old isometric games look better anyway, but the artstyle is absolutely inferior in the later games and I have no idea who looked at these orcs and said: "yeah, that looks good"; especially considering that they had perfectly viable designs from Divine Divinity that could have been updated to suit the newer games. I predict that the cringefest of artstyle and dialogue retardation will be a prime feature of Baldur's Gate 3 as well. With the horrendous writing being the main reason I can't get into these games personally.

Mostly for ugly aesthetic. It looks like Dragon Age Inquisition lvl of cheap.

Also juvenile cartoonish kids friendly feel should remain in the past. If i wanted that generic newfag retro crap i would play Pathfinder.

Also all modern RPGs should turn to REAL TIME not with pause or turned based, that should went to dumpster of history.

But i get Sven, he is phoning it in at this point. Taking money from Incel retards that want to replay same game 20y later in same basement. Sad!
