Baldur’s Gate 3 is a “mega hit” that Hasbro expects to pay dividends for years

    Loved BG3. but it was the hit it was because it was done by people who love the D&D world and didn’t attempt to live up to any specific monetary goals, nor did it rush out to try and beat some arbitrary deadline. it was done in the old style of development, by a relatively small team over long periods of time to showcase their labour of love.

    given the history of D&D the company itself and it’s more recent copyright monetization and attacking the playerbase for profit, I cannot see them pumping out other games that are anywhere CLOSE to what Larian produced.

    Wee’re going to get a whole lot of bullshit shovelware trying to ride BG3’s excellence.

    this is why we can’t have nice things :(

      Yeah, the reason BG3 was so good was because unlike Hasbro and WoTC, they love the Forgotten Realms, and they love video games. If either weren’t true, it would be an awful game.
