I still have all BG games installed and play them but I don't really see myself replaying the game because of how boring the combat is. Before every monster, their mother, father, sister, and brother from other mother take turns to move you're already fed up and just want it to be over. It's not the difficulty or the challenge of the combat but the tediousness of it that kills you. It's not dynamic, it's not interesting, takes too much time doing *nothing*.
I really hope BG3 goes the same path as Pillars of Eternity Deadfire and let people choose the style of combat they want. Because right now it feels like they want the DnD starved crowd to play what is pretty much Divinity Orginal Sin 3.
@Dingor you do realise PoE2 *had* to implement the choice because people were moaning so much about it not being a turn based game?
We aren't talking about other crpgs we are talking about THIS game you dingus!
THIS game is turn based. As it should be. Go back to archaic BG 1 and 2. Emulate them if you don't want TB combat. THIS game is turn based and if you don't like it don't effing play. Its really simple if you have an intelligence score over 3.
