I am a 40 year player/DM of D&D and D&D games going back to Heroes of the Lance, Pool of Radiance and Azure Bonds on pc. Then Eye of the Beholder, Dark Sun, Death Keep, Planescape, Neverwinter Nights 1+2, Baldur's Gate 1-2, Dark Alliance, Temple of EE, DDO, Neverwinter, Idle Champion's and a ton of others that I can't remember right now. I am stoked that Larian is FINALLY making a D&D game after 40 years that closley resembles acual Dungeons & Dragons. Like Holy Sh!t, its only taken game companies 40 years to make a D&D game that really brings in the tactics and intricacies you can have in tabletop to the game market. Trying to implement the rules, classes and spells of the PHB as close as they can as written is a moumental task. Some of the D&D games of the past redifened the game markets back then. But those times are over... Let's continue those stories with something that actually plays like D&D for once.
Exactly. This game is going to make a freaking fortune, even in the middle of a crazy pandemic.
