It's pretty hilarious how everyone is going crazy over Divinity: Original Sin.

Like it's something new and refreshing when Spiderweb Software has been making this style of game since the mid 90s and are still making them and there are 15 of them to play now. +Modtools.

I mean, Larian is probably one of the best RPG devs currently active, but give credit where credit is due.

I don't get it either.

Someone finally makes a high quality game, the type of game that gamers have been asking for for years, and you don't get what the big deal is?

Really?

Drakensang series should have gotten more hype, but it's the only thing that comes close in the past few years.

Biware has forgotten what an RPG is , choosing instead to force their propaganda on people, rather than produce decent games.

Bethesda can't seem to stop dumbing down their products.

Divinity is a breath of fresh air.

Spiderweb makes dinky little 16 bit forgettable table top droplings of a game.

Divinty: OS harkens back to the likes of Baldurs Gate and NVN and stands toe to toe with them.

"Someone" did not "finally" make a high quality game. Spiderweb Software has consistently made High Quality games in the same style as D:OS for the past 20 years and are still making them.

If the type of game that gamers have beena sking for, for years, is something that was coming out more frequently than once every other year, then I fail to see how they have been asking for it for years, or maybe they have been asking for it and nobody knew what the answer was. That's not my problem. That's your problem for missing out on these incredible games.

The only big deal here, is the crime these supposed CRPG fans are making by not playing Spiderweb games.

Drakensang, Bioware, and Betheseda are suck

Divinity is not a breath of fresh air, it's a high budget version of Spiderweb's games. It's a great game, but please don't pretend like it's something new that we haven't seen for a decade.

their dinky little 16 bit games are a million times better than any of the garbage made by Bethesda or Bioware for the past few years. I also don't see how you can legitimately call them forgettable unless you never actually played them.

The game looks good, and I enjoy playing good games. I want it.
