That's because your mind is focused on the game being very similar to a tabletop D&D session. My mind, however, is looking at these games NOT in any way as a D&D tabletop session but as a D&D video game. That's the key point. I don't want a tabletop simulator. I don't want the game to be anything like tabletop. If I want to play tabletop, I can go do that. In BG3, just as with BG1&2, want a VIDEO game. A single player video game. No table. No other players. Just me, playing a video game.
