Now that Baldur's Gate 3 is popular here are the last 10+ years of games you could've also been playing
Listen here you nerds, I know you're all very excited for the Baldur's Gate and I'm very happy for you. But now it's my time to spring upon you this subtle revelation: They've been making video games like Baldur's Gate 3 for the last decade and change. You could've been playing games that may not have BG3's scope or budget, but are probably better written or have more interesting combat. Since I'm broken and sick, here's a list of things I would recommend now that the illithid tadpole in your brain makes you understand that dice rolls can be fun and exciting.
GAMES I DIDN'T RANK BUT PEOPLE SAY ARE GOOD:
Shadowrun Hong Kong
GAMES I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND:
Torment: Tides of Numenera
The Bard's Tale IV
Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness
