Basically DOS3 flavored D&D/Baldurs gate is here to stay. Deal with it. I think what we are getting is the best that we can get close to prior BG games with a 300 development team AAA budget. Anything else just will not sell or be popular in 2021 aesthetics. Cinematic dialogues are so bad though...just hate them. For me it just does not work...I find the cring to overwhelming. Like a very bad Z movie. Due to the way they are made, no options either for later mods to add stuff to the story like the prior games. A good book doesn't need 100% cinematics to be better. Just a little for those impactful scenes. My opinion on the matter.
