Does that go the same for the original fallout games and The elder scrolls games? Or how about the grand theft auto games that were top down. Should we go back to Mario when it was a flat platformer but is now a bigger wider genre of it own. BG2 is over 20 years old, its gameplay is not antiquated, but its future can be bright, and is in the hands of Larian. I personally think it's gonna be a good future.
But to being it back to baldur's gate specifically. What about baldur's gate, makes baldurs gate?
Nuclear fallout in the 1950's makes fallout. Tamirel and all its races make The elder scrolls. Rise to riches in the criminal world makes GTA.
