Baldur's Gate 3 - anyone hyped for this?

Growing up, two games were an important part of my younger years, those being Baldur's Gate and it's sequel Baldur's Gate 2. Ive invested an inordinate amount of time on both games and they kindled my love and interest in reading books, as I started out reading the Forgotten Realms novels, namely the Drizzt books and gradually moved on to reading more book.

Although I loved Jrpgs like Final Fantasy 6/7, nothing quite ever matched up to the hours I spent in Baldur's Gate. The entire universe was fascinating and the games made you feel like you were in that world, rather than just watching things unfold like a movie which was FF 6 and other similar role playing games.

I still have fond memories of all the characters and their interactions. The amount of work put into the world building of these games was incredible and I waited for decades to a sequel after the original developer shut their doors.

Finally Baldur's Gate 3 is becoming a reality and I was super excited by the first trailer and announcement, but now that the gameplay video has been released, I've been a little dissapointed. It just seems to be like a reskin of the Divinity games, which is not a bad thing as those were great RPGs, but so far, the trailer just doesn't feel like Baldur's Gate. I hope I'm wrong and the developers manage to deliver something that will bring back good memories of my childhood when things didnt suck.

Anybody else here have fond memories of the Baldur's Gate series.

What do U think about 3?

I don't think anything they do will live up to Baldur's Gate 2 though.

Im actually dissapointed it's turn based. Real time with pause is much better, like in the original. One thing I didnt like in Divinity is that the combat was turn based and just didnt feel right.
