but realy, the Mona Lisa was a comission for money.
Not all art is soulless because it was made for comercial reasons, or for that matter, requried comercial success in order to perpetuate itself. Its a weak argument.
Calling something a cash grab is, again, ridiculous. A cash grab is quick, cheap and low risk.
This is the opposit of that, they expanded the studio greatly, poured resources into it and are facing a hostile community. A cash grab would be literaly all the other DnD games that were facebook tier shovelware trash.
That or all the blatant Infinity engine clones living only off peoples nostalgia
In my view, part of the community is only reciprocating WotC's and Larian's hostility towards the people who are fans of.. well, BG! Perhaps people on the other side of the aisle are too quick to call naysayers "nostalgic" but I'm not sure anyone wants BG3 to be a remake or rehash. The team had ample time to think about what they were going to show us at PAX. Honestly, a cameo or two would have left series veterans thinking "ah, this no longer feels alien to me" but instead it was more like Divinity fans saying to themselves "oh, this is right up my alley". Combat isn't the biggest issue here anymore.
To be honest, I'm not sure I've seen this hostility. Where is it?
