And it is selfish to expect people who don't like origins to just put up with a subpar plot and less options.
The op is advocating for removing already existing content in one area because they feel that content in another related area is sub-par in comparison. it feels petty and punitive. I am saying keep that content, do not remove it. I find it hard to see what is selfish about not wanting roleplaying things removed from the game that already exist and money has already been spent on. This is not a zero sum thing: removing origins will not magically make custom "better", though for some reason people seem to think that is how it would work. As verte says, don't remove the origins, bring the custom up to standard and use the level of detail put into the origins as a benchmark which you can then point to and say: we want this level of effort for custom pcs too.
Actually. I can +1 this
You are right about the time and money they put into origins. I get it.
It is my strong feeling that the vast majority of BG3 players are players from the original BG series, from the neverwinter series (and WOW, that games went STRONG for a LONG time because of all the online and mod support!) and the icewind dale series.
The biggest point for that is... that generation is more than 20 years old at this point.
Then the other, newer, smaller percent, I feel, is from the divinity or dragon age or witcher crowd.... which is actually at least 2 generations removed.
I have dealt with this with final fanasty 6 and final fanasty 7. FF6 is, hands down the best one ever made. But most players can not get past the 32 bit graphic design and won't play the game. While FF& is good, FF6, in my opinion, is better, and newer players simply will not experience because they won't play it for the graphics.
Maybe most will hate this idea, but put origins on the back burner, and sell it as DLC - not as one of the main features of the game.
However, the core assestment of bring the custo up to standards is completely 100% on point - if the custom content is on par, then I have nothing to say about origins.
