Default Thoughts I Had While Playing Pillars of Eternity

I recently bought and started playing Pillars of Eternity. While part of me thinks it's a super great game, the rest of me is now even more hungry for a crpg set in the GD universe. Hell, I might even want that more than GD2 right now.

Maybe if we all believe hard enough we can will it into existence or something. Come on guys!

sadly crate is very limited in people. If only we can clone Zantai and Grava so that they can do two games with 2 studios at the same time churning games at faster pace. Even making an xpac is taking them some time but thats reality for them.

and Sadly as much as i want a poe style grim dawn or even a divinity original turn based crpg I still prefer that the next game would be an arpg. For me that is. CRPG may not be that feasible for a team like crate given the competition. dont get me wrong i like it to happen too but not sure how it will be done. I need more holy faith. Even paladins need faith sometime

I didn't want to have to read the sad truth but deep I knew

Honestly, I just didn't enjoy the world and the writing. The original Baldur's Gate had a lot more free exploration than the second one so I could somewhat stomach it there, which is why I finished that game (it still doesn't rank too high on my cRPG list tho). Second game leans on writing and characters a lot more, which is why I liked it a lot less. I'm pretty sure I finished it at some point, but I can't really remember TBH - that's how unimpressive BG2 always was to me.

So, why would I dislike writing?
a) I know this isn't Bioware's fault since they were using an existing setting, but Forgotten Realms just doesn't feel like a coherent world to me. It feels like a game space with cool and epic things thrown in there for player to find, and that just doesn't get me immersed into it particularly.
b) While the characters fit the greater-than-life nature of the world perfectly, that was also why I disliked them - they all had a characteristic or two that they were sticking with unquestionably and they never really felt believable to me.

All of this and Obsidian's promise that they're mainly going to take inspiration from BG is, after all, why I didn't back the original Pillars of Eternity when its kickstarter came up. But a lot of people told me there's more BG1 in Pillars than BG2, so eventually I gave in and bought the game.

As you may guess from my reasoning as to why did I dislike BG games, PoE ended up being a perfect fit for me. It had the exploration element from the original Baldur's Gate and the writing's a lot more down to Earth, with companion characters being a lot less extreme and more believable. Add to that the fact that I never really liked combat in IE games and Pillars of Eternity was like somebody was going through my list of complaints with it and removing them one by one, I
