Diablo IV will be DOA. Blizzard died a long time ago. It will sell okay, but it will never feel like Diablo II: LOD or any of their previous games.

Baldur's Gate 3 on virtue of the only future Blizzard products you should support are from Dairy Queen.

Their products have turned into cow manure over the years and are getting worse along with their recurring poor life choices.

Nothing more then an empty husk that's been sucked dry and licked clean.

I disagree, from what i've seen Diablo 4 will be better than Diablo 3. It looks actually very good to me. Maybe Blizzard can fulfill their promises.

I'm going to say Diablo 4 by virtue of we having less information. What I'm seeing about Baldur's Gate 3 I don't completely like. It feels too... soulless. Sanitized, even. Too 2021.

Once we know more about Diablo 4 I will come back to rant about both.

The last game by Blizzard worthy of the legacy was Starcraft 2 imo.

On the other hand I don't know if BG3 will be a good BG game but it will prolly be an amazing game.

Diablo 2 Resurrected notwithstanding, Blizzard's output and just general company vibe is nothing for me to be excited about.

Divinity games were both amazing.

Easy vote.

Baldurs gate 3 has nothing to do with baldurs gate 2

it’s divinity original sin 3
And that’s fine just don’t call it BG3

diablo 4 will get fucked so hard by MTX
But will adjust over some time to the gem d3 became

I don't know about sanitized but seeing the game be delivered piecemeal during the beta was definitely taking something away from it for me.
Had to decide on a media blackout.

Isn't standard practice these days the opposite? Launch without it for pr and then add it in later.

I’m looking forward to both, but have zero faith in modern Blizzard to get it done right.

Larian, all day every day. Their early games were janky as shit but always fun. Their latest ones have been outstanding. One of the best indies out there

i hated the Divinity: Original Sin games and BG3 looks like Divinity Original Sin 3 so i'm pretty sure BG3 is gonna suck.

haven't played a Diablo game i hated so yeah I'm gonna go with Diablo IV.

of course, it's possible that BG3 will kick ass and DIV will suck. but as it stands for me right now i'll buy Diablo and will need serious convincing to buy Baldur's Gate.

You can't make a game today for Activision without microtransactions. It is just smart development.

It it follows the same trend in the drop in quality from D2 to D3 then D4 will be somewhere around one of those $3 porn games on steam.
