I played all the Pillars franchise and Pathfinder Kingmaker in real time with pause. I enjoyed these games, no question about it.
However, I am actually happy I will get the chance to play a game that is made to be turn based for a change. I am fully in support of the turn based decision. 5e is also designed to be played in turns as a tabletop. Regardless, it is the plot that makes Baldur's Gate Baldur's Gate. Not the way it works (real time or turn based) or the edition of rules it has used (5e is actually a big improvement on the 2e set of rules).
