I dislike protagonist voice

I am in love with DOS II. It is the best example, that a game does not need to be trendy, modern and shiny to be really really good. I take DOS II over all those Assassins Creeds, Battlefronts and Destinies any day of the week.

honestly i came from console gaming started at bout 5 in bout 1992 and stayed there up till xb1 then bout 2016 i got my 1st pc, not just because of gwafics but smoother game play and cheaper games, no online connection, anyways grwafics come 3rd for me and atm loving playing older games that i never played, graphics dont mean everything and yes the reading can be annoying as it gives me headache but that dont make the game bad or how it look's make it bad. even tho i have a mid rage pc i still play older… Read more »

Pfft, some of the dialogue is good, but some of it is horrible. Like when High Judge Orivan purges the elf when talking to you.

I feel pretty much the same about Divinity. It gave me back that feelings the now old games used to give you. What they make today is cool and beautiful and they have all these flashy effects, but things like Baldur’s Gate did really take you somewhere else.

Best gaming experience? That a full physical team destroys everything while a mixed team does not, is not a sign of tactical depth, it is a sign of how flawed combat in the second game is and how much the balance is lacking.

Dragon Age Origins was fantasy Knights of the Old Republic. Almost identical feel, at least for me.

1:08 using taunt when their physical armor wasn't down hurt me in a personal manner :p

I actually prefer text, because I read much faster than people speak (that's not a superpower, almost everybody who reads can read faster than they speak). So sometimes I skip the voice acting in DOS2 because it just takes too long.

No dude, you couldn't get into PoE or D:OS1 because you're impatient and you wait until the media tells you something's a masterpiece before you'll play it. DIdn't notice any improvements in PoE when compared to BG? Are you joking mate? You didn't even play.

See Baldur's Gate doesn't strike me as a Tactical RPG. At least the ones I played weren't. Usually Infinity Engine style games are considered RTS with Pause RPGs and not traditional Tactical RPGs which have a rigider turn sequence.

Zeldarina was great for it's time. Parts of it has been remastered in the unreal engine.
Pretty nostalgic and looks amazing.

He complains about the text dialogue in Baldur's Gate and other games, and the time it takes to read it, but Divinity also has the written text, except it's also accompanied by voice!

the problem with pillars wasn`t all the dialogue. it was the fact that it didn`t really have a plot, just a setting and story. but it did a bad job in actually motivating you to continue. also, it was a crowdfounded effort to recreate isometric classic gameplay without all the bells and wisthles, to show that there was a market still there. it was a success.
still. could be that I don`t actually like tactical RPGs. didn't like DOS2 either. I just dont into the finicky gameplay.

Divinity Original Sin 2 is amazing. The ending had my jaw drop thrice.

Pillars looks incredible and is gorgeous to behold, divinity looks like a cartoon, but I guess we are talking about subjective artistic preferences here so whatever 🙂 the rest of the video i am in complete agreement with though 🙂
