There are two types of RPGs. RPGs with sovl and RPGs without sovl.
>RPG with sovl Bladur's Gate 3
>RPG without sovl Dragon Age Inquisition
>RPG with sovl Tyranny
>RPG without sovl Pillars of Eternity
>RPG with sovl Fallout 3
>RPG without sovl Fallout:NV
>RPG with sovl Cyberpunk 2077
>RPG without sovl Starfield
Why is sovl so hard to get?

I don't want to think of you as a simp because I respect the rest of your eurojank taste in a reason defying way (except DE) but the evidence is there until you fix your image.

>no Eternal Darkness
The list is not complete. It takes time to compile all the games. I only recently realized that a lot of the games i was having fun with were coming from Europe. A lot of those game i had no idea that they were European made in the first place. I was also shocked to find out that Fallout:Tactics and Warlords:Battlecry were Australian.

Fair enough, definitely take the time to research earlier era of Peak Sovl though, pic massively related along with the Amiga platform in general.

The man with the burning dick did a great job voiceacting. Kojimbo is just there. The woman had barely any lines and was just some random NPC. The one on the right actually came off as a scam beggar acting up and not as a genuinely insane person so i'd say that he did his job.

No, BG3 was soulless. It was just a “technically good” game.

>>3503030
Don't beg me, i am not the one who made the soulless slop that is PoE/NV.
>>
>>3502615
While you are correct in your classification, its insane to me how you considered BG3 as a sovlful RPG. The thing is literal corporate aesthetics, the game.
>>
>>3503203
you did not play the game

>>3503203
I wish the corporation i worked for was like larian.
>>
>>3503524
I did, but even If I hadnt Id be able to judge its aesthetical qualities. That aside, where even is BG3's soul? I honestly dont see It.

He wishes for corporate aestetics to mean games as good as Baldur's Gate 3. Corporate slop is nothing like Baldur's Gate 3.

Corporate aesthetics is corporate aesthetics. The game does have a decent gameplay but still It has no soul.
Its a pastiche of d&d blandest setting, using the most boring photorealistic graphics possible, with the most sterile corporate safe dialogue, terrible races and awful forgotten realms worldbuilding.

It has a lot of time and money put into it, but no love and passion.

Now that is just plain wrong. If you want to see a game that had a lot of money put into it and no passion, you look at Starfield.

I'm just going through my backlist and finally got to PoE and I haven't really noticed the soul yet. I guess it was... Hollowborn.

Tyranny definitely had a soul. Shitty combat system on top, but with soul.

The combat was not completely shitty, the spell construction was nice.

Obsidian's best game. Their last good game actually. I don't know what happened to Obsidian after Tyranny. It's like the people that worked on Tyranny are no longer there.
>>
>>3508686
I wouldn't use music as argument, but I won't argue on these because I feel like none of these is really clear cut.
>The combat was not completely shitty, the spell construction was nice.
Yes I liked spell construction too, but thinking about it more deeply led me to conclusion that it made virtually impossible to reasonably balance the combat difficulty compared to other approaches to fighting after you have gathered enough sigils and could create good stuff. I also didn't like that with talents what only mattered was order you got them in, not which you chose. Now when playing PoE the difference is obvious, even with few questionable decisions you can tell that the base of the combat system is solid.

>>3508696
>Obsidian's best game.
writing and worlduilding-wise definitely, but they had some games with writing that was not that much worse and with combat not pulling it down

In a way, yes. There is more to it but in general videogames with sovl are liked by people..

CP2077 is more a RPG than Baldur's Gate 2, and a better game too.

Stopped reading here, "we want the D&D lifestyle brand audience" is as far from soul as it gets.

Baldur's Gate 3 is peak sovl. You simply did not play the game or you yourself lack sovl.

bias is biased.

IMO everyone should like Moraff's World for SOUL maxed.
yes there's only 2 classes that can beat the game in a practical non-cheaty/hacked-save way, but you can also pick your race! just don't pick human, because you can grow old and weak in this game if you somehow roll an old-aged human.
