That’s a bit hyperbole... More than a bit. Yes I’m sure there is a good (or in this case bad) number of big enthusiasts who believe its RTwP or bust, but you cannot know how high that number is just as much as I can’t. I have countless hours sunk into it, its my number 1 game of all time (bg2), but I will buy bg3. I’m sure I won’t be alone.
So let’s refrain from absurd blanket statements, it helps no one, least of healthy discussion.
