Yes, DnD is also turn based. you can do both of these things in DnD. Tho the first one is probably a difficult acrobatics check that either lets you land on your face or get an opportunity attack, but its still something you absoluteley can do with the apropriate skillset.

In BG3, EVERYONE can do this. Is it still DnD?

i dont know where you get the 100% chance of success but tripping a troll of a bridge probably happens in every second campaign.

This game makes your Shove 100% success if you're invisible. Is this DnD?

a character with 17 STR is jacked as shit, have you never watched wrestling as a kid? or done Judo?

So, in DnD, you don't even have to roll a check to pick up an enemy and hurl him 18 metres away? All it takes is 17 STR and the desire to throw the enemy?

onward to my goblin Slayer example.
Dont roll the dice, play smart. sounds pretty much in line with that.

You don't get a choice in the matter. If a goblin with a fire arrow wishes to set your ground on fire and do guaranteed 2D4 damage to you, he automatically succeeds. Is this DnD?

You can do and see all the above in BG3. These aren't examples I pulled out of thin air.

Edited to fix the formatting.
