Please list ANY game that offers 8-10 party members? OR even 6? I mean every RPG I can think of at the most has 4. Your not leading a posse...If having a party that size is so important, there is mods for it in every RPG I can think of. But in the last 10 years, I don't think there are any games that go above the 4 party limit. There is also console limitations they have to consider.

All the old IE games included their EE, The Temple of Elemental Evil, Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny, Pathfinder, Wasteland 2 and 3,...
Most of these exemples comes with 6 but one can have more (ToEE). I'm sure I can find more exemples.

There are also games with 5... And other "kind of rpg" like the Banner Saga, Fire Emblem, Valkyria Chronicles,...

Many of thoses games, including the IE games are available on console. I could even say that even on console, it's way easier and intuitive to control 6 characters in BG1 EE than in DoS2 lol.
Couldn't go further than the boat on nintendo switch because of this horrible chain mechanic.
