You Should Play Divinity: Original Sin 2

Baldur’s Gate 3 is great, and I don’t want you to think that it’s not. However, having replayed through the opening couple of hours around nine times now, I’d be lying if I said I wanted to do it again. There are probably lots of other people in a similar position to me, and while things are still fun to mess around with, starting again might be a bit off-putting. That means you may well be in need of a different RPG to scratch that itch, and while there are plenty of other games that might manage it, it’s hard not to just go back to Divinity: Original Sin 2.

If you’ve never played it, let me break it down for you. There is a story, and it’s great, but I’m not playing it for the seventh time because of the story, so you can discover that yourself. The reason why it’s so easy to go back to, is because of the wonderful way the systems weave together. You can play through 100 (or at least seven times) while playing as completely different classes and combinations. Each one feels different, and you’ll discover new ways to mess around with the world every time.

When you then throw in the additions made via the gift bags as well as all of the mods that are available it’s impossible not to want to play more of it. In fact, I’m going to go on ahead and go and play it instead of writing anymore. You should do the same.
