>almost 2 months since full release>still has ~200k playing at any given time>No mods, no extra content, just people "playing" the same game over and overDefend this without sounding like a paid shill.
>>651315794It's a good game and you're mad
>>651315794it's a shit game and you're right
>>651315794I agree, I'm so fucking sick of Starfield. Bethesda games are often held up as "the best ever", and Starfield has plastered this board. Oh cool, yet another Bethesda game that just looks and feels like a copy of every other Bethesda game. I don't get the hype for these over games with new and interesting combat mechanics like Baldur's Gate 3, the fact that /v/ pretends Baldur's Gate 3 is a bad game is proof that this board doesn't really care about videogames anymore.Starfield looks exactly like every other Bethesda game. Meanwhile, Baldur's Gate 3 is:>Full of content>No DLC or MTX, a finished product from day 1>More weapons, build options and personalization than ever before>More enemy variety than pretty much every game in the series, makes the previous game look like a prototype in comparison>Loads of amazing bosses and mini bosses, some secret and plenty in sidequests>Sidequests have been fixed, it's no longer just doing what some ghost tells you, now most are almost just as good as main story content>You get to explore every realm, the world feels more alive than ever, no longer does the game feels like roaming a desolated wasteland Shadow of the Colossus style thanks to plenty of NPCs.>New Game+ will be added to the game soon enough to have even more fun.Overall an impressive feat and when anyone expresses love for it, you faggots rip on them.From a game design perspective, Bethesda games just feel lazy to me, reused assets, reused mechanics, it really doesn't offer anything new and im not sure if i should laugh at those thoundans of players people who bought this absolute garbage of a game or sad because that many people bought this absolute garbage of a game.
>>651315794it is a long game that also encourages 2nd playthroughs.
>>651315910>finished product from day 1Hjehehjejeheheheh
Modern game mindbroken over the thought of people playing a single player game.
>>651315794>>651315894it's a good game, brent
>>651315794it's 100 hours. if you're a normie that shit is lasting forever and multiplayer keeps them coming back out of obligation to their friends. also mods to add new classes and shit do exist.
>>651315845>>651315910>>651315995>>651316113>>651316142I said without sounding like a paid shill.
>>651315794>just people "playing" the gameThings /v/ will never understand
>>651315794I am doing a 3rd playthrough when I don't feel like playing street fighter
>>651315794It is quite a long game and quite good too.
>>651316207who the fuck would pay for shills on 4chan
>>651315845op effortlessly btfo. Fpbp
>>651315794most people have a job, a girlfriend, a social life, and other interested and on still on their first playthrough. unironically touch grass.
>>651316207I'm no shill, i genuinely like BG3 and i hate shit like Starfield because it's trash>character creator makes you select body type A/B>The game asks you your preferred pronouns>you play as a virgin>the first bosses are 100% aryans who wear variants of the same golden armor, they want to kill you on sight>every time they kill you they say "such an inferior being, will do good soap" >The final boss is a tranny who is revealed to be the actual hero who is trying to protect the universe from the actual villain which is a conservative white man who insist on calling you with female or male pronouns despite no one else doing this.>The helpful NPCs are all black astronauts who have white scientist by their side>One of the gestures in the game is a strange mix between moonwalk and twerking>All of the planets have female bosses, you often would beat an alien and then a stronger female boss will appear.>There's a mention of gamergate (it's very subtle)>One of the NPCs references Rosa Parks>When you get the option to change your appearance (yes even gender) an NPC will tell you "I'm glad you are proud of who you really are">there's a BLM mural inside a cave that is all way to end of the universe, the description says "a painting dedícated to those brave space explores looking for freedom outside of the Starfield" once you find this you can get an item called "moon boots of Mr. King" (reference to Rodney King, victim of Police brutality)>The merchant NPCs often mention of how there's always "evil beings" stealing the lighting of more deserving people (probably a reference to how niggers believe that Edison stole a niggers invention when he made the lightbulb despite this not being true)>There's a Chadwick Bozeman reference, in a holographic sign who tells the story of a pioneer that was "as fierce as a panther"There's lots of other shit Bethesda has crammed in there just to tell us that they are pro white genocide and hate their audience
>>651315794>No modsAre you a bot?
>>651315794I guess its because you can do multiple builds and multiple choices. Sure the choices might lead to something simple with no major impact but normalfags are very easy to impress.
>>651315794>No modsBut there are mods
>>651315794I'm on my 4th playthrough, this time I'm killing everyone and everything.
>>651315794>/v/trannies buttblasted that the game is still being played despite the endless predictions that it's only gonna be a flavor of the week/month/etc. and how starfield is gonna make everyone forget itYou love to see it.
>>651315794the sooner you just admit Starfield is shit the sooner you will be free
>>651315794Thanks for admitting that it's a massive and impressive success, and yes im pretty sure the devs made 400k accounts and paid at least $25m to maintain fake numbers
>>651315794people replay game with different builds, different choices, different companions, etc. This isnt rocket science.
>>651315794If Schlomo Dovrat had his way then no publisher would be able to afford faking numbers like this. He tried to save us.
>>651316937Let's see next month which game has more threads spawning it. Starfield will be talked about for years.
>>651315794It just seems like Skyrim but turn-based. Normies love Skyrim so normies love this.
>>651315845fpbp, OP rekt
>>651317151Yes, just like fallout 4 and 76. I totally see the daily threads about them on /v/.
>>651315794Take your pills schizo. I am still playing the game and so are my friends.
>>651315845OP anally destroyed also FPBP/thread
>>651317008with Tencent's money they easily can, shill
>The day it had its highest player count, the tutorial level had a 0.2% completion rateIt's bullshit.
>pajeet WON'T stop seething even after the Witcher thread embarrassment
>>651317579>even after the Witcher thread embarrassmentb4k? sounds interesting
>>651317151SAAAAAAAAAAR SAAAAAAAAAAR STARFIELD IS GAME OF DECADE SAAAAAAAR EVERYONE TALK ABOUT IT BG3 IS SHIT GAME MADE BY BENCHOD BITCH BASTERS SAAAAAAAR PLEASE REDEEM THE STARFIELD
>>651315794I am on my second playthrough and will do another after this. There is shit I completely missed in my first one and I tried to look for everything possible.
>>651317705Someone probably has the image/link but>imagine being so much of a schizo you think a Witcher image is a bg3 one, post your recent shares image, people call you on your retardation and then pretend you were false flagging for Larian

>>651317874>recent sharestencent shares
>>651317579>>651317705>>651317874I was the post he replied to. It was glorious watching it unfold.
>>651316271Zenimax did, funny enough. They went out of their way to even DMCA images about Doom prior to launch.
>>651317705https://arch.b4k.co/v/thread/650963647/#650963647It was hilarious and people are still shitting on him for it. Every time someone mentions it he starts seething over it.
>>651315794It's GOTY and I'm still playing it.
>>651315794The tencent schizo is looking for new ways to spam without being recognized and made fun of again, not gonna happen anon
>>651317975>>651317874>>651317579>he sperged out in a witcher thread lmao I wonder if he's still seething about it somewhere itt
>>651315794Multiplayer is kind of fun. Mostly just taking jabs at how absolutely shit the story is and then intentionally just shooting everything that moves to start the murder hoboing. The game is a fucking joke otherwise. I can't imagine replaying it single player since the story choices objectively don't matter and no one in this dumb ass game is likable other than your crazy butler. Bad choices are bad for no real reason and they aren't even really that twisted (no rape? Really?) And sometimes it's just helping some other evil cuck for a mediocre reward. Game doesn't seem to comment on your extremely prejudiced shoot first policy or, immediately 180 and murder some random retard you just helped, policy. Most the companions are weak willed cucks, mentally retarded Jesus freaks or just outright goodie good cucks who deserve the rope.Story is 2/5Gameplay (multi) is around 3/5, would play again for bants. Hoping mods will add something like a skirmish or quick battle mode so I can just focus on the gameplay I care about: murdering the shit out of NPCs. Oh and Tactician is retard easy.
>>651315794lmao I absolute adore how hard this game has mind broken your retarded Pajeet ass
>>651317975>>651318351Lmao, all this effort for a shitpost.Maybe he just struck a nerve.
>>651315794>he thinks there are paid shills to shit on a gamemedsnow
>>651318412Ask and you shall be rewarded>>651318582
>>651315794Also, the game appeals to a certain userbase and these people stick around for a long time because of it, just like Elden Ring? This isn't a hard question to answer. You should have reached this conclusion yourself. Also the game does have mods.
>>651315794its an 80 hour game...I just completed it a few days back and I have been playing since launch. Some of us have jobs neet faggot.
>>651318351I don't even enter bg3 threads often but I've seen him a bunch because he also appears on other threads. Is this a brand new schizo or an old one that learned a new "trick"?
>>651315794It's par for the course for a good game with a lot of replayability and good reviews>>651318702>its an 80 hour gameYou skipped half the game
>>651318582Kek, post it already. We're waiting.
>>651315794seethecopeand...(you know the word)
>>651318702I admit I'm taking it slower than most, but I'm still in Act-1.
>Bored reading through reviews of the game>Reading early reviews>People who gave it a thumbs up haven't even clocked in 30 hours>Look at the person's profile>Only 8.5 hours>"Woah this game is great no microtransactions! literally the gold standard devs need to follow!>recently played games>apex legends>overwatch 2You shouldn't be allowed to review a game until you've clocked in at least 50 hours.
>>651318714I have too, he just randomly pops up in Starfield threads to screech about this game, even if no one even mentions it. I'm pretty sure he's just the larian schizo from a few months back who constantly spammed articles about white people characters and what not. The guy is unhinged.
>>651316271>this faggot wasn't on /tv/ during Barbie's theatrical run
>>651316308Literally nobody talked about Starfield, schizo
>>651318702How did you finish in 80 hours? I think I already played for 50 before leaving Act 1.
>>651315794Oh Todd, how far you have fallen...
>>651315794>>No mods, no extra content, just people "playing" the same game over and overUh..or it's a very very long game? Im at 100 hours and only just arrived at Moonrise Tower.
>>651318714>>651319091I've seen him in FFXVI threads too. Im inclined to believe it's Barry or ACfag who's blown a gasket and become more insane than he already was
>>651316308Kill yourself retard.
>>651315794Some people actually play videogames.Multiple playthroughs to keep me interested and Multiplayer with friends and im not done yet.
>>651319343I've got two saves on Tactician with 2-3 bosses left (Orin/Netherbrain & Cazador/Gortash/Netherbrain). Both are at like 45-50 hours.
>>651319729>540 hoursfound the tencent bot
>>651319729Hot diggy. That's getting your money's worth 0_0I'm weighing whether to wait for the Definitive Edition for my subsequent playthroughs. It's probably a year away though.
>>651319815NTA, but I'm 99% sure that just having the launcher open counts towards playtimeI'm at 360 and my saved games don't add up to anywhere near that.
I love how this game makes /v/tards seethe. I don't even have to play it to get hours of entertainment from it
Trying to twist a game's massive and lasting success by an objective metric into an "argument" against it is a new depth of cope.
>>651315794>not a lot of new triple a games and is still relatively new>game is long especially for regular people>can take a longer stretch of time for people playing mp>new people still buying it>timezones
This would mean that Larian literally bought around 200K copies of their game and play them on 200K computers 24/7 for around 2 months now.
Notice how the shills deflect to talking about muh starfield as if anyone cares about that trash.It's very clear the Larian are cooking their books.The same thing happened with Street Fighter 6 too BTW, and it was even more blatant.
>>651320202>successWhere are the sales figures? Larian has been suspiciously quiet about that.
>>651319729>540 hours>38/53 cheeviesGooning to gay animal sex isn't very productive, is it?
>>65131579Most people are still in the act 3
>Game takes 300 hours to complete>Wow wtf why are people still playing it?!Post the Tencent image again so we can laugh at you for being a retard.
>>651315794Good game i like looking at pussy and boobs.
>>651315794talking to animals and dead people in BG3 is way more exciting than talking to your main companions in Starpajeet. let that sink in
>>651320493>>Game takes 300 hours to complete>>Wow wtf why are people still playing it?!You can pull a random game out of a hat, anything you chose will have a low completion rating. What you are claiming is that for the first time in history every single person came together and finished a game.You are so naive it's not even funny.
Fuck you tencent shills
>>651315794Sales are what makes it funny too>5M sales>2.5M of them are from early accessYou're telling me it sold only 2.5M despite contant 200K players and 1M peaks? Seems like botted shit to me.
>>651315845As shrimple as that
>>651315845thread should've ended here
>>651320782The people who got it early access are still playing the game. It's not as if the early access sales are ghost sales or anything.
>>651315794People have been starved for a single player experience that wasn't bogged down with microtransactions and season passes to shit. It's that simple.
>>651320780This isn't the Witcher 3 thread
>>651315794It's a great game with a shit load of replayability, a shit load of mods. Idk why you're mad or skeptical. It's likely going to be GoTY. It appeals to trannies but isn't too annoying for normal people to enjoy. If anything, the game shits on trannies and fatties in a lot of ways.
I gotta say the trannyjeet meltdown over starfield being mediocre has and continues to be quite entertaining, bros
>>651320761>EVERYONE IS A SHILL NO ONE CAN EVER ORGANICALLY LIKE ANYTHING >LOOK LOOK HERE'S THE IMAGE YOURE A SHILL YOURE A SHILLtortanic was a fucking disaster for this board
>>651321078Notice how you didn't respond to my point and proceeded to have a meltdown. Very telling.
>>651320782>You're telling me it sold 2.5MWho is telling you that? Larian hasn't released sale numbers after the game launched so I hope you can bring some source for your claims
BG3 killed Starfield just like Elden Ring killed Horizon Forbidden West
>>651321016Imagine this board when BG3 gets GOTY. My nipples are getting hard just thinking about it.
>>651320761That just means more people have come to check the game out and they have replaced the numbers of those who dropped the game.
>>651321245Clicked on the wrong post by accident, meant to reply to >>651320780
>>651320275What happened with SF6?
>>651321023I don't think the bot schizo cares about starfield
>>651317975>>651318351He's never gonna recover from this one lmfao
>>651315794Im still playing it like 200 hours in so far and will continue to do so
Three options:1. Steam is faking their API data, going out of their way to promote Baldur's Gate 3 over other AAA games like Starfield for...reasons? If found out, this would shake trust in the storefront as a whole, a risk which clearly isn't worth the gains.2. Larian bought a certain amount of their own game, and they are running hundreds of thousands of instances of it. Let's say Larian bought 100 000 copies of their own game through Steam, a fair number since free key generation has been significantly neutered since it was abused. This means they spent 6 million euros buying their own product, of which Steam takes a 30% cut. This means they would have spent close to 2 million euros just to...occupy a higher spot on the Steam stats list for a while? This is not to mention the huge amount of server time, IP addresses, and Steam accounts needed to run all of these instances. Completely ludicrous.3. A lot of people are still playing Baldur's Gate 3 because it is a very long title. OP is a schizo.Draw your own conclusions.
>>651321321It will. What else would beat it? Starfield is exceptionally average, RE4 is a remake, AC6 is relatively niche and filtered many. BG3 is just the best overall mainstream game (that isn't a remake) that would be nominated, and it's inclusive for the weirdos on top of it. It seems like an obvious win at this point. I doubt this board would care much. The praise here is far more common than hate from what i've seen
>>651316190Lets say that your average normie plays 2 hours per day. This is a very generous estimate because it doesn't account for the freetime that kids have and Weekends.2 months is about 120 days.120 x 2hr = 240 hours worth of play.I'll take off a further 25% to account for people for people occasionally doing other stuff in their downtime aside from playing BG3.180hrs.Enough for almost 2 full playthroughs based off of your estimate.
This just shows you how bad the modern gaming industry is, someone releases a good game and people cannot understand what is happening, their grip on reality has been shattered.
larian can eat shit for making DOS2the same mouthbreathers who gave that game good reviews didn't play beyond the introand the same kind of shit happens with BG3 which is just a big fucking DOS2 mod that has DND spellsdumb fucks who will never play past the first hour being perfectly conned into shitting out good reviews are larian's strategy
ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL POST TO SHILL THE GAME BY "SHIT TALKING" THE GAMEand you niggers fell for the oldest trick in the book
>>6513216292 months is 60 days, retard.
Why are people here so obsessed with player counts?
>>651321629>2 months is about 120 days.Anon...
>>651321690>I was just pretending to be retarded!>I-I'm actually a shill, guys!
>>651321629>2 months is about 120 daysBWAHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>651321690>miserable fucks on a contrarian board love a mainstream release aside from a FromSoft game >must be trannies or shillsYou just don't like popular things. And I'd say that's okay because it's your taste and all, but it's not even that. You're just a fuckin faggot
>>651315794>seething ms jeet
>>651321426It had a flat line of players day to day for the entire period after launch. Yet if you look at any game in history you will see a consistent up and down line (peaking for US times, and then dipping). This makes sense as time-zones exist and people have to sleep. Not for Street Fighter 6 though. It was very clearly botted. How they are doing it I have no idea, but it is literally impossible to have a flat line from 12am to 12am
>>651321629>2 months is about 120 days
>>651316271there were mods/shills on this shithole before you were even here tourist, before 50% of modern /v was here, 2013-2015, etc Not a lot of bots/shills back then , but after the elections and gamer gate now it's like 30% of the board or more Look at baldur gate bots, same answer, same posts, same images, threads and spamming made during the same hours (eurotrash and chinks/pajeets hours) those are bots or shills
>>651321629>2 months is 120 daysIs this bait? Or are "people" here this braindead?
>>651321678>only play past the first hour>game has 200k-250k players on steam charts multiple months after release>several ways to confirm player retention >most of this thread confirms retentionYou are a fucking dipshit and DoS2 being bad is a hilariously bad take. I hope your tastes improve or you find a way to stop being a disingenuous retard
Anyone keeping track of the latest FUD against Balder's Gate 3? It's interesting that the tactics keep changing when the last one fails. Is the tencent takeover botting scare the latest conspiracy?
My gf if literally LITERALLY doing thisShes on like her 6th character200+ hours
>>651315794I finished the game at about 150 hours. Took my time with it. Now I'm doing a new run coop with friends.
>>651322138>games can't keep selling and receiving good reviews from word of mouth from other idiots saying the game is good>implying this wouldn't also maintain high consistent player counts vs the typical trend of falling slowly over time>DoS2 being bad is a hilariously bad takeit is a fucking trash heap, actually play it and you would knowtotally buggy unbalanced shit with a god awful trash story
>>651321629>2 months is about 120 daysthe best prt is that he cant correct this because if he does, he'll just prove the other guys pointlarianhaters are a gift that keep on giving
>>651322087Imagine resorting to them being shills rather than some no-life weirdos like yourself who live on this board. They thrive on attention, you thrive on shitting on things. Same difference. It's really that fucking simple.
>It must be botted because...>...it just is, ok?!
>>651315794Ok, I'll give you a sincere response. I'm one of the people who still play 2 months after release. First of all, despite the memes, it has a lot of replayability. It takes at a minimum two playthroughs to see the majority of the "content", and a playthrough takes about 130 hours. It's also just a fun game, and the art is very nice. The environments are interesting, the music is great, and I like the writing. Characters are fun (Raphael, Lae'zel, Shadowheart, Gortash are exemplars). It's just a fun.
>>651315794>>No mods, no extra content, just people "playing" the same game over and overthe replay value is nuts and it takes forever to do anything, hell sometimes i load up my evil character just to fuck around
>>651322274DOS2 and BG3 are objectively well-made games. The reviews and retention prove this. YOU are in the minority and YOU are the one with weird-ass takes. Your takes aren't weird because they're in the minority, they're just dogshit takes if you're the same anon I think you are.
>>651322431read any negative review for DOS2 for actual criticism of the game you fucking brainlet I'm not going to sit here and explain to a retard why he's retarded>well made gamesthe art is well madesome mechanics are well madethe games themselves suck shit
>>651315794i hate bg3 as much as the next guy but liking a game enough to play it over and over without any mods doesn't sound completely unusual to me, especially if it has any replayability
>>651315794100+ hour game and then there's the replayability as well
>>651322274>it is a fucking trash heap, actually play it and you would know>totally buggy unbalanced shit with a god awful trash storyCould you be any more vague?
>>651322523>I got filtered by the fire slugsThanks for sharing.
>>651322523>read any negative reviewWhy don't you tell us instead? What did you find wrong with the game, what makes it "suck shit"?
>>651321690i bet you feel smart for pointing out something everyone in this thread knowsyou even posted it in all caps to show how clever you think you are, how kawaiii nigga, how kawaii....
>>651315845It's a trash game and PC users have zero taste
>>651322390Also, the game isn't without it's faults. Act 3 is certainly unpolished (UNPOLISHED, not broken, as people claim), and it needs QOL improvements. But overall it's the best game I've played in years. Before BG3 I had spent years playing a backlog of RPGs that I never got the chance to play, like KotOR, Morrowind, etc. So of course I'm going to savour BG3 and play it for months, people who like this shit have been starved for a legitimately good RPG for years. The market is saturated with slop that claims to be an RPG, like Bethesda shit, when in reality they're just action games with levelling mechanics.
>>651319576Wouldn't acfag complain the game is trying to make him care about [insert girl] instead?
>>651322553>muh 100 hour gameIt's very funny that this is used as an argument when 20%+ of people don't even progress past the main menu or tutorial on every single game.
I hate India.
>>651315794it's a long game with alot of replay value unlike starfield which i have 125 hours in and have beaten 3 times already only to find out a huge chunk of the npcs are immortal and quest have identical endings despite making different choices, haven't even beat the game with my second character in baldurs gate, also durge playthroughs are canon
Forspoken is the better game.Baldur’s Gate 3 doesn’t have action rpg combat so it’s automatically shit
I put 160 hours into the game and I have no fucking clue what these people are still doing in it. I know steam numbers are inflated in general, but this shit has got to take the cake. It's obviously going to win GOTY since 80% of it is some of the best shit in the past decade. Lets be real though what the fuck are these """people""" still doing? There is nothing to do or grind for. Even the chivos don't take long to get.
>>651315794no rajj i don't think i will
>shazamtroons believed the game would flop>it didn't>because they're delusional, instead of realizing they might have been wrong, they're now creating conspiracy theories about bottingis there any evidence of botting whatsoever? of course not. that doesn't matter to troons as they live in an alternate reality
>>651322862Because playthroughs with different characters with different attributes and moral alignment yields very different results. It's not that hard to understand.
>>651322862have you considered maybe they are just roleplaying? quicksaving and reloading alot to experiment? exploring or just playing really slow?i know two people who are barely beating act 2 despite getting the game near launch
>>651321629martianbro, earthlings are not supposed to know that our month last 60 days
>>651322942>yields very different resultsWe're too far past release to pretend this is true anon
>>651322879shazamtroons were right about one thing
>>651322274DOS2 is one of the best games I've ever played
>>651321629i thought pajeets were good at math
>>651323043It does, though. I don't know how to argue with someone who's just stating falsehoods. A playthrough as a good paladin is very different to a playthrough as an evil wizard, especially when you focus your campaign on different companions.
>>651323138Different companions I'll grant you, but evil playthrough is just good playthrough minus content, there's not a single meaningful pivot in the story between them
>>651322862>Even the chivos don't take long to getAnon... hundreds of thousands of people didn't even play the game past the main menu.
>>651322673>Why don't you tell us instead?because I don't feel like copy-pasting points hundreds of other people have made over and over, it's there in every essay on the steam reviews for your reading pleasureface it these games are highly rated by a relatively large number of people who will not break past the first few hours of content
>>651323138Not that anon but it really isn't.You still go to moonrise. You still have to save Aylin (even if you try to ally with Ketheric). You still have to fight Orin, you still have the same dilemma at the end. No epilogue really means that your choices are meaningless. Side with Vlaakith and attack the dream visitor? Identical outcome to if you betray Vlaakith. Side with the absolute and spam brain worms? Identical outcome to if you use 0 worms and fight the cult.FFS I attacked Last Light Inn, killed all the harpers, kidnapped Isobel and Jaheira joined my camp anyway ub acr 3. Your choices mean nothing after act 1 - take it from the people who have played more than you.
>>651321629You basterd, what are of you doing?! This am are making us look bad! Deploy the sirdukaur, this must not be allowed to stand!
>>651315794it's the current unbeatable normalfag fomo game like hogwart's legacy was the unbeatable normalfag fomo game, larian games are pretty forgettable and nobody talks about dos1/2 even though they did pretty well
>>651323289in act 3*
>>651321629are months longer in Delhi?
Feels good being in the 1%
>>651323104if you enjoy exploitable, busted games with bad storylines all power to you son
>>651323280>because I don't feel like copy-pasting points hundreds of other people have made over and overNo, I think it's because you either haven't played the game; being contrarian because you think it makes you oh-so-c00l; or both.None of the well-constructed negative reviews call the game "trash heap" like you did.
>>651323289>>651323243If youre concerned with endings, then youre right, I'll give you that. But different playthroughts results in many different things occurring and things to see. I don't really care about epilogues, and I never have in an RPG. So that's why I enjoy replaying the game.
>>651323243That's not the case for the dark urge
>>651315794I played it and beat it in the first weekMy play through with a friend is STILL ongoing, we only play like 8 hours a week. My sister comes over sometimes on the weeked to play after hearing how good it is on tumbler.
>>651323427Even the dialogue lines are almost identical but whatever you lying fag. I accept your concession.
>>651315794its mass effect 2/3 for modern retards who have never played a crpg before in their life. it will continue to be popular and continue to be shit
>>651315794Its long game like over 100h. Not every one has all day to play.
>>651323510They aren't. Like I said, play a good half-elf Paladin, then play an irresponsible dwarven wizard, and the dialogue is different enough for you to want continue with another campaign. It's like we're playing different games. But this is the answer you refuse to accept for why people still play.
>>651323401>None of the well-constructed negative reviews call the game "trash heap" like you did.sorry I didn't use more friendly language faggotagain, feel free to actually read themthe reason I know my points are repeated in those reviews is because I have actually played the game, experienced the story and its problems, and read those reviewsunlike fucking loser ass larian fanboys like you who want to close their eyes and cover their earsare you enjoying your 3rd party account required just to play the game now, by the way?fucks sake, I won't give you more because you could have their actual shit fall into your mouth and you'd say it tastes great just to defend it
>>651323687Oh that's what your original posts were about?Yeah that's false, too. The truth is that most people haven't finished. This game is really, really long. So you're wrong about that too.I get the feeling you aren't right about many things. I mean here you are telling people who've actually replayed the game that it has replay value. Spinning lies out your ass after I impart truths. It's pathetic. Learn to take advice from your betters thats my advice to you.
>>651315794>Complete first playthrough after 200 hours>"Wow I wonder what would happen if I made different choices">Starts another to be 200+ hour playthroughIs it that hard to grasp? I'm still playing so why wouldnt others be
>>651323696>are you enjoying your 3rd party account required just to play the game now, by the way?For BG3? I've been playing since release and haven't made an account for anything, you schizo. I played it just today without an account on Steam.
>>651323696>sorry I didn't use more friendly language faggot>again, feel free to actually read them>>the reason I know my points are repeated in those reviews is because I have actually played the game, experienced the story and its problems, and read those reviews>unlike fucking loser ass larian fanboys like you who want to close their eyes and cover their earsAlright, so you indeed haven't played the game.>3rd party account required just to play the game nowFurther reinforces it.
>>651315794still coping buddy?
>>651323821sorry, launcher not account
>>651323793I'm not spinning lies, you're just a cynical faggot. The game is different, objectively, if you play a low int martial character your first playthrough then play a high wisdom or int character for your second, that alone, changes the game and the interactions you have, not to mention your moral decisions, companion choices, class and race. You're just objectively wrong and it makes me think you haven't actually replayed the game.
>>651322979I have over 200 hours all in act one because I want to play every class. No game has ever made me feel like this since WoW.
>>651315910Post gameplay, you people speak of it day and night and not a single instance of what fun can be had with such an experience. Prove your words then.
BG3 might have broken /v/edditors' collective mind harder than BotW/TotK
>>651323940Why should I care so much about a launcher? It opens, then I click play game. It's over in about 5 seconds. I'd rather it wasn't there, but it doesn't negatively affect me
>>651323696>enjoying your 3rd party account required just to play the gameLMAO this faggot really did go read negative reviews from mouthbreathers and now pretends to know everything about the game.
>>651323940>launcher>for a GOG gamestop digging yourself deeper, retard
>>651323427>>651323687simping like this for a modern rpg full of faggotry and modern conventions is a bad lookall the "evil" choices just lead to the same outcome as the "good" choices, or at the most, you lock yourself out of content, 90% of dialog choices lead to 1 response from the NPC and then they return to normal dialog, it's all just an illusion and has no replayability
>>651315845FPBP>>651315794This number excludes GOG and console users so it has an even higher active player base
>>651324023Cope, tencent tranny. I bet you like sending your personal info to the CCP
>>651324023talking DOS2no idea what BG3 asks forlast time I had DOS2 installed it wanted something like that for a new launcher
While it's fine to have a popular game, isnt the strangest thing about BG3 is the fact that achievement completion rates hasnt increased drastically since launch or are achievements just broken on PC?
>>651323940Nope, shitter, wrong again.You can lauch the game's executable without going through the launcher, or add just --skip-launcher in launch options in steam.
>>651324110Using mods disables achievements
> anon is surprised that the biggest fujobait since Dragon Age and the biggest waifubait since July is in fact still popularIt's probably the biggest woman game this decade so far.
>>651324110Um, please don't ask questions sir. This is the most successful game of all time.
>>651324091Piss off, retard.>>651324107>talking DOS2Me too. You're neither required to make an account nor use the launcher. >>651324139
>>651323696>I'm just parotting reviewsThanks for admitting you have no personal opinion and I can just look at the comment section of this game if I wanted to know your input>Overwhelmingly (95%) positive on steamHuh funny how that goes
>hey my side of the skip isnt sinking so i dont give a fuckreminder 10000 year old dragons that shapeshift themselves into form of a 9 year old loli are legal and not loliconjust as druids are not animals even after shapeshifting into a cat (that you're fine with)
>>651324262Who are you talking to?
>>651315794>almost 2 months since full releaseeasy: it takes 150 hours to clear the game and a big chunk of the that bought the game needs 2 months to reach halfway through the main story because they don't have many hours per week to play.
>>651324087>simping like this for a modern rpg full of faggotry and modern conventions is a bad lookThanks for revealing your cards, faggot. We get it, you're an obsessed /pol/ shitter, demented by culture wars nonsense. Game is great and I don't give a flying fuck if there's gays in it. >all the "evil" choices just lead to the same outcome as the "good" choicesCategorically wrong, it's obvious you've just pulled your opinions from the talking points from every other hysterical "culture warrior"
What mods for my second playthrough? gonna get tactician plus and give enemies +stats and hp since the default tactician is way too easy, any other good ones worth getting? (aside cosmetic stuff)
>>651324110Yeah this combined with the surprisingly low sales number of 5 million that Larian released makes things seem kinda strange. Why did BG3 have the same or even higher concurrent player peak as games that sold 10-20 million copies in the same time span?
>>651324262>are legal and not lolicon>what is legal loliIt's so entertaining seeing retards try to badmouth weebs with their own diction and getting it utterly wrong
>>651324294>uh.... the game is long because.... uh..... it has content>the content is either broken or missingNice try, shill
>>651324367If I were you I'd just wait for proper mod tools (soon(tm)) and then play with a proper difficulty mod that adds more stuff than just bloated stats.
>>651323049broken clock, if you say that every games will be a flop you will inevitably be right a few times
>>651324384Because it's an RPG that appeals to an audience that has been starved of genuine RPGs. The people who bought this game have been waiting for this type of thing for years, and now that they have it, they're playing it and enjoying it. Different audience with different retention.
>>651322768ACfag HATES turnbased because it's not gameplay (his words, I dont get it either) and was betting on this game failingthe fact that bg3 utterly eclipsed ac6 is probably salt on the wound
>>651324205>Me too. You're neither required to make an account nor use the launcher.>y-you can just disable it with a launch option so it's okmaybe they changed it but when I first encountered the shit ages ago it asked for an account loginI was actually reinstalling it to play it again in the hopes that my opinion of it would change, but hey
>>651324446https://howlongtobeat.com/game/68033ok I was wrong about 150 hours. says "94½ Hours" for main+sides so let's say 75 hours. the gist of what i said still holds.
>>651324384>low sales number of 5 million that Larian releasedWhere?
>>651324384People that actually play and complete videogames VS brainless goyslop console "gamers"Verification not required
>>651324335>Categorically wrongMy favorite part was when I killed Isabelle in front of her gay lover and she didn't react to this at all, and celebrated with me for killing Ketheric. My 2nd favorite was when i realized you can't side with the Absolute, and that even the good players will "side" with them the same way I did.Nothing matters, it's all just an illusion and you play the same playthrough as anyone playing the game. Nice RPG retard.
>>651324187The romances are like 5 lines of dialog with 1 awkward mid 2000s cutscene at the end, spread out across 150 hours of mindnumbingly tedious turn based combat. You really think more than 3% of the playerbase of BG3 is female? Lmao. According to Larian's own kickstarter statistics they once talked about, literally 99% of their backers were male.
>>651322509>he changed the pic related after positng it over 30 times in 2 dayshahaha, larian bots/drones are something else, too much europoor cum ?
>>651324367Camp Event Notifications so you don't miss/have to f5 to check for long rest eventsShits a lifesaver
>>651324626so pic related was just bait or played it for 5 hours and dropped it ?
>>651315794I keep playing because of my dear wife Shadowheart. I LOVE HER!
Baldur's Gate 3 is the best game released this year.
>>651324601That doesn't make a lot of sense. WOTR is by all means a better RPG yet it didn't draw 10% of the number BG3 did. DOS2 did what, 20% of BG3's numbers? And they are very similar games, except BG3 has slightly better writing and a more boring combat system.
>>651324639>>y-you can just disable it with a launch option so it's okYes.And even if you're using the launcher, you don't need any extra accounts made, nor does it constantly run in the background like e.g. ubisoft's does.>maybe they changed itNo, it was always like that.>I was actually reinstalling it to play it againYou already confirmed you never played it, shitter, stop pretending.
>>651324662>>651324601Considering no other cRPG has ever come anywhere close to that number of players, you have to assume that the majority of players BG3 attracted are in fact normies and not cRPG fans.
>>651324762I dont know how schizos like that guy work, dont ask me. He probably didnt play it at all
This has got to be the most boring story in a video game I’ve ever seen.Both Starfield and this game are both cringe.Kill yourselves all of you
>>651315794>NOOOOOOOOOOOOO>REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE>PEOPLE CAN'T POSSIBLY BE ENJOYING THE GAME>THEY ARE JUST BOTS>REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAnon, stop posting.
>>651315794>explain to me why this game is not only popular but STILL popular?have people been starved of decent games for so long that the idea of one not being completely irrelevant a month after launch is indicative of foul play or foreign influence?
>>651324187It absolutely is written by women. I get same vibes from 50% of the stuff in Starfield. A lot of dialog choices like "I'm walking into a drama... I'm walking into a drama..." or how there are dialog choices in BG3 for "ugh are you hitting on me?" as a male character is so blatantly written by a woman, exclusively for women, that is fucks with my immersion.
>>651324639What's the point of quoting him just to add some sarcastic remark? Like it'd be one thing if it was contradicting what he said, but it isn't

>>651325024>>651324781>heryou gay son
>>651315794The real reason is that it takes over 100 hours to beat and most normies have jobs and school and shit and take months to finish games
>>651324837wotr writting is way worse, you cant even kill anyone, compare that to bg3 were you can practically kill everyone until the end of act 2, you would have to be retarded to think wotr is a better rpg just because it has better encounter and uses a more complex ruleset because in every dialog you have to listen to a dumb monologue and be a bitch for the DM with only one way to solve every problem. even Kingmaker had way better writting and companions

>>651325120i'm talking more in terms of character builds and combat system, writing in both cases who cares? larian's world building is the equivalent of putting "blockbuster high fantasy world dominance plot by alien power" into sudowrite and letting it cook

>>651325590That seems like a strange way to define a good cRPG."Yes, this game has terriblly written woke characters, but at least I'm allowed to kill them off and play through the game solo"

>>651325760no way starfield is that low
>>651325814>Why is player agency important in a role playing game?Gee, I wonder, I just feel immersed when the game arbitrarily stops me from certain actions
>>651315845They are just seething because an old school western crpg is outshining their web shit
>>651325864not even normies. I love cRPGs but I would never play through a 100 hour+ RPG back to back after I just finished it. Especially a game like BG3 which is actually very linear and has very few changes in the actual story depending on your choices.
>>651325814>giving players freedom of choice including who they want to kill seems like a strange way to define a good cRPG.Go on.
>>651325971>And if they mention anything, make sure to deflect to Bethesda's shit game

>>651326102phew neverminded, starfield has about 500 more viewers, makes sense the game just came out
>>651321629Will you ever get tired of humiliating yourself like this?
>>651326012a game enforcing rules and boundaries isn't a bad thing. I don't need a toddler sandbox when I play an RPG. If you play a real life D&D session, a good DM wouldn't allow the players to do whatever the fuck they want without reprecussions for their actions either. And again, it's not a feature that is anything special or unique to BG3. BG1 allowed you to kill pretty much any NPC as well. The game was also punishing you for it though by reducing your party's reputation as well as making guards in cities and towns attack you, making it a much more immersive and realistic experience than in BG3.
>>651325814honestly though, killing isabelle in front of her lesbo lover, and killing those degenerate lesbian whores in wyrm's crossing was one of the more enjoyable roleplaying experience for my straight cis hetero male character, even though it probably wasn't the kind of roleplaying larian envisioned with their ESG checkbox narrative design
>>651315794Simple. Slopfield flopped.
>>651326228I LITERALLY look like this except I'm fat and ugly.
>>651326152>JUST READ THE BAD REVIEWS BROyesI guarantee everything I give a shit about is in there apart from my useless anecdotes about bugs with fuckers walking through walls during combatmy quick opinion, again, is that the game is fucken trash lolfort joy enjoyer

>>651326241as opposed to>See that tranny accompanying you? You cant kill it. Because that would be problematic!!!The only thing Im getting from your post is that Wotr is a dogshit crpg because it doesnt even let you do whatever you want in the first place
>>651326051if the game has such badly written characters that the only thing you can think of doing with them is to kill them off, then why play the game in the first place? The characters are a major focus of BG3 and you basically admit that they are trash and that the game is good because you can kill them off.

If reality doesn't agree with your beliefs, reality is wrong.
>>651326428bg3 is typical modern AAA feminist powerwank but at least you can kill all the annoying characters or enslave them openly. it's like kicking down sand castles made by tranny jews, especially when i didn't pay for the game. it's just a fun mindless romp of a game where you can just go "nah that's not happening" when the situation calls
>>651326496Both BG3 and WOTLK have unlikeable wokeshit characters. My point is that just because one game gives you the option to kill them doesn't make it a good game. It would be a good game if it had well written characters that you wouldn't want to kill off but interact with them like the developers intended. You know, the game being a party based D&D adventure with the majority of effort and budget having gone into the character writing, voice acting, their storylines etc. How is my point this difficult for you to understand?Like imagine playing a racing game that had really bad driving controls and then you played another racing game with equally terrible driving controls, but that game allowed you to instantly teleport to the end of the track at the start of the race. Would that second game be better than the first just because it allowed you to not engage with the entire point of the game?
>>651326395>game that focusese on family and christian values is slop.>focusese on family and christian valuesStop repeating words you don't know the meaning of. Christians with values wouldn't touch either of these.
>>651326737character writing has never been the point of crpgs
>>651326728it's not fun to play that way though because there is zero reactivity from the NPCs when you do that. It's like going on a rampage in GTA only you used a cheat code that police doesn't spawn, that would get boring insanely fast.
>>651326737>I just want a racing game where I keep crashing into the rails
>>651326792>It doesn't need good writing, I enjoy BG3 for the ridiculously tedious combat system.
>>651326815larian games always had shit writing, you play them semi mindlessly just romping around going "hey whats there" like a dog chasing a car, similar way you play bethesda games. the writing can all fuck off for all i care, in dos2 i skipped through ALL the text after you get to the golden spirits of whogivesafuck part and dos1 i didn't even finish, still a great game
>>651326916>Did you know you can blow up the barrel?>The barrel in the town over?>Yeah just drag it over here and blow it up to kill 7 enemies out of 24
>>651324952well i guess you must be gay if your woman radar is picking up men because at least half of the game must be written by men (the larian cuck squad) and it's basically confirmed that one gay guy wrote the entirety of lines and stories for two of the most popular companions. it'd be stupid to claim there are no women on the writing team for a major production in 2023 but throwing random accusations of "oh this must be a woman thing i just know it" isn't really adding anything coherent
>>651315794>zoomers so fotm dopamine addicts they cant fathom people playing a good game for more than a short periodthis fucking game dude keeps delivering in and outside the game
>>651326959>you play them semi mindlessly just romping around going "hey whats there" like a dogThis is fucking infuriating because everyone plays these games off like they're some roleplaying bonanza.It's not roleplaying if I have to always engage in the same core mechanics of looting, exploration for levelling and combat.
>>651326737>My point is that just because one game gives you the option to kill them doesn't make it a good game.Of course you would say that, you have to put up with the trannies in wotr. You have no choice in the matter.It's literally sour grapes. Why cant you see that? You're just mad BG3chads can play the game with whomever they want while you're stuck babysitting axewounds. It's sad, it really is.>Would that second game be better than the first just because it allowed you to not engage with the entire point of the game?And of fucking course an rtwpfag spoiled on walking into trash mobs with autobattle on would say that. What delicious hypocrisy
>>651326241Invisible barriers are dog shit and this is the role playing equivalent of that, if you can do something to A you should be able to do it to B and if you can't there needs to be a good reason for it
>>651315794normally I'd say it's just new people playing the game, but we already have the sales numbers for this game (new sales, after "official" release) and they just don't support the idea that 200k+ people are still playing this game, especially when you factor in achievement completion rates and find out that less than 40% of players even beat act 1.

>>651315794the game is quite longthe game has a lot of replay value due to different pathsmost people are casuals and not /v/ NEETs who can game for 16 hours a dayI have no idea about botting but why would they want to bot a single player game? Like I understood if they wanted to fake metrics for multi player games to give the illusion of active online community, but is there really anything to gain for botting a single player game?
>>651327175>we already have the sales numbers for this gameWell, where are they?
>>651327175what would be the point of botting how does a high playercount on steam help a single-player game
>>651327175Several people claiming we have sales data and not a single one has provided a source. Will you be the first one to actually do so?
>>651327271Popularity helps sales. Simple.
>>651315794look man, let me break this down for you. when a game like this comes out, you don't blow your entire load playing it all in one go. You have to stretch it out a while, play some other games in the interim and come back to it - because games this good only come out once in a very seldom while.
>>651327340Doesn't look like sales figures to me.Are you going to answer the question or not?
>>651327365the average person doesn't check player count, especially for a single player game
>>651327397Sure they do. They check player count, twitch views, youtube views.
>>651322509>low effort shillspotter drive-bys the wrong thread one time>dozens of shills immediately melt down over itamazing
>>651326994i dont care if the game is written by gay trannies as long as they don't make it obvious. bg3 makes it abundantly clear you're playing something written by and for women, clearly someone in the team felt it very important to try to achieve some kind of female plight envisioning where everybody keeps hitting on you and flirting with you instead of the other way around
>>651322509I remember that thread. The funniest part was that the IP count never went up with each new reply to that post.
>>651327359>Will you be the first one to actually do so?He's never going to anon, for this reason>The embassy celebrated Larian Studios, which was founded and is still headquartered in Ghent, Belgium, claiming that the studio's latest game has sold 5.2 million copies on Steam (as of August 16, 2023). >as of August 16, 2023his "muh 5 million!" sales count is hilariously outdated and he knows it
>>651327435>>low effort shillspotterWho do you think you're fooling?
>>651315910Dude, this board is full of zoomers who think DLC is normal and actually cry about a game being unsupported if it doesn't get DLC.They can't handle that not everyone has a 7 second attention span and a lot of people actually try to finish the games they buy.
>>651327435>BG3 shills think they exposed the spammer>It is actually the spammer who exposed BG3 shills as overly defensive, jumping at every criticism of the game (because they are paid by tencent)pottery
>>651327494We already know you cannot count, Rajeesh. Stop lying and embarassing yourself further.
>>651327435>>651327552Why are you talking to yourself?
>>651323975Like every other game on this board then. Do you not know how to use YouTube? Poor little tech illiterate zoomer.
>>651327435>>651327494>he posted in the wrong thread one time>he
>>651327073but if you have issues with woke characters, then you only have a non-choice to make in BG3 to play solo. Also, I don't really see the difference to kill or to just choose not to recruit a character. Either way the game doesn't change at all. There were plenty of characters in BG2 that I never liked, but I simply didn't recruit them and never thought of them again. You can do the same in WotR.
>>651327492what you're describing does actually take place in the game, at least between a few companions, and is the source of some of the biggest bg3-related asspain on this board. for the sake of this place i'm not sure i actually want to see some sort of dynamic relationship system for the companions
>>651327603We don't call him schizo for nothing.
>>651327603nice try, tencent tranny
>>651327435So do you like the term bot schizo or would you prefer a different term?
>>651327552yeah I find it really weird how they dubbed the guy the "tencent schizo", when it's an actual fact that Larian is owned to 30% by Tencent. It's not like that's some unhinged conspiracy theory, you can just look it up.

>>651327392This was from 2020https://www.thegamer.com/baldurs-gate-3-one-million-copies-sold/It was top of global sales on steam for a month before the full release and for a few weeks later.There are also GoG sales and PS5 sales.The game has probably sold 10-20 million copies by now and it is also releasing on mac and Xbox soon.Why do (you) get mad about a game being successful?
>>651327915If it sold that much larian would have said so long ago.
>>651327915>Why do (you) get mad about a game being successful?Where'd you get that from? I'm just asking for the supposedly "confirmed" sales numbers, and nobody seems to have any info because there isn't any.
>>651327797then why play a huge cRPG at all? Especially a game with such slow and tedious combat like BG3? How is it fun to start up an RPG only to have time to play through like 1 combat encounter per day before you have to quit?
>>651327764>when it's an actual fact that Larian is owned to 30% by Tencent.*of an Irish Holdings branh*has nothing to do with the main dev team based in BelgiumI wonder why you left those bits out?
>>651327654i have a little theory that bg3 is mega popular among female gamers, like 30-40% player count or something female. high fantasy is already one of the biggest gamer girl genres

Is the tencent guy the same anon that spent 3 years shitting up every BG3 thread on here and /vrpg/?
you can tell when tencent shillshitters/autistic schizo tranny larian defense force arrive because they always, without fail, accuse everyone who calls out their shilling of being an indian.

>>651328021and i think you'd be absolutely right. hard to believe we went from women on phones to women on computers over the decade though
>>651327915>The game has probably sold 10-20 million copieslast official numbers were around 5.2 million, half of which being EA sales before official release.
I don't believe the numbers eitherI wouldn't be surprised if it was some blackrock-tier shit playbotting so they can push the degeneracy in this game
>>651328127>last official numbersWhere?
>>651327915why do u care so much about how much a game sold? you didn't work on it, its achievements are not yours, they belong to larian, of which you are not part of
>>651327985Use your brain anon, the game sold 1million in 2020 before the EA was out.It was the top selling game globally on steam for about two months. It is also on GoG and PS5.You are clearly mad about a game being popular and selling well. Why does this upset (you)?

>>651322334This. There are so many faggots who spend years spamming the same thing and aren't necessarily shilling a product or anything. I've seen it in almost every board I've been in. There's just a lot of unhinged people in here who thrive on attention.
>>651327850>someone spent time making this about some rando shitpostyes because there is nothing amusing about a guy obsessing about a game that mindbroke him to the point of spamming his shit in a thread that had nothing to do with that game, and proceeding to whine and have a mental breakdown after he got caught.but enough about your goof a week ago
>>651328021your theory is wrong. Larian famously released a blogpost how disappointed they were to find out that their female to male ratio was incredibly low and that something like 97% of the kickstarter backers for BG3 were men. If you want to see a triple A game that had a high female audience, look at Hogwarts Legacy. Now that game might conceivably have had a 30 or 40% female playerbase. A turn based fantasy cRPG though? that's literally female repellant.
>>651328127>last official numbers were around 5.2 millionwe don't know from when these number are, they got leaked 2 week after release but we don't know if they represent 2 days or 2 weeks of sales.
>>651328076calm down, zhang, you're getting paid. no need to get so angry that you start hallucinating delusions as well. it's just a job. you don't have to actually care about the product like some kind of pathetic deranged tranny fanxir.

>>651328256i have no idea what you are talking about but it sounds funny
>>651327645>You can do the same in WotRnow you're equating being able to kill someone who annoys you with just not recruiting them to cope and I think that's the funniest thing because you can choose to not recruit them in bg3 as well. your point is meaningless.

>>651328257>BG3>kickstarterHow does it feel to be a larper on the video games board? I would just kill myself, honestly
>>651328257but larian paid a couple dozen twitch thots to put their faces in some thumbnails showing they played it! surely it must be popular among girls!
>>651327435>>651327552>>651327764What is this mental illness called?
>>651327764>when it's an actual fact that Larian is owned to 30% by Tencentyes, but you are a schizo because you think that tencent having 30% of Larian make your others retarded cope about bots true.
>>651315794game is massive I have still friends who played since release and steam shows that they are still in act 1 because they only play on weekendsmany also replay the game or start coop games
>>651328274when a developer releases player numbers, it's always to create even more hype and to tell people "look how successful our game is, you don't want to miss out on this game, do you?" so they would never use the lower numbers when they already had something higher available to brag about. Those 5.2 million were all they had 2 weeks after release and that included the EA sales from the past 3 years. At that point Elden Ring was already at 12 million, yet suspiciously had a similar concurrent player peak.
>>651328346>Yennifer or Triss>baldurs gate "woman"how about a real hardmodeStarfield or Larian china bot filfth
>>651328460This entire post is just insane headcanon
>>651328346Triss but Shani is the real best girl.
>>651328370my bad, the blog post was about statistics regarding the kickstarter for DoS2. But I highly doubt the audience from DoS2 being 97% men would somehow switch to double digit female audience in BG3 considering how similar those games are.
SIRSSIRSGO TO THE STORE TARGET AND BUY A STARFIELD CARDDO NOT REDEEM THE BALDUR'S GATE SIRS
>>651328503>This entire thread is just insane headcanonFixed.
>>651328460>when a developer releases player numbersLarian never did that because the numbers are publically visible on steam, so your entire story falls apart.
>>651328486What the hell does that have to do with witcher 3 tho
>>651328460>when a developer releases player numbersthis is not the developer numbers.... this got leak by the Belgian Embassy in China, we don't know when Larian gave these number to the Embassy could be 2 days after release or 10 days after, we don't know.
>>651328521DOS2 and BG3 are not similar at all. The simpler combat and focus on cinematics would naturally draw in more women, similar to dragon age. But you would already know this if you played games.
>>651328503what about it is the headcanon? You are the one who has to cope by saying "actually, Larian's official numbers that they posted after 2 weeks were probably from 2 days!" which has absolutely no logical reasoning behind it.
>>651328612>what about it is the headcanon?>Larian’s official numbers
>>651328460>At that point Elden Ring was already at 12 millionon 5 platform you 50iq nigger, on PC Elden ring had 4.5 million sales in a month+.

>>651328684What official numbers?
>>651328575>He doesn't know the tencent schizo lore
BG3 clobbering Starfield must be the reason for this desperate cope. There has been plenty of soulless games that sold much better. Like Hogwarts. No one claimed that it was artificially or fraudulently boosted.
>>651328721You tell me, ur the one who imagined them.
Legitimately what was the last game with surprise runaway success like this that mindbroke so many and produced some absurd copes
>>651328721 -> >>651328612>>651328749I just replied to the wrong post, calm your asscheeks buddy retard.
>make a good game with decent length >it gets engagement What a mystery! The post-launch support and modding scene will determine the true longevity of the game, though.
>>651315794It's a long ass game.
>>651324678Game is actually well suited for female gamers. Turn based combat puts away twitch reflexes demanding pressure, so gamer girls can enjoy game too without failing combat.
>>651328778I would say Elden Ring, but then again you didn’t see schizos spamming threads with insane conspiracy theories and copesBG3 is like the anti-TORtanic or anti-cyberpunk. A mythical success that future games will only hope to replicate
>>651328746Schizo's in the other slopfield thread right now posting exactly what been he's posting here. Seems like he's even got the thread mixed up with some replies.
>>651327435You could have let this go.You could have waited until people posted the cap of your humiliation so many times that it got old.You could have then came back with a different tack and not been instantly dismissedYou could have ignored all of this and simply posted the spam and let people think you’re a bot, hence not worthy of a negative reply.But that would have required impulse control.That would have required you to curb your cyber ego and get over people laughing at you, even though they don’t know you and never will.Never change, you narcissistic retard. Your constant chimpouts and pathetic samefaggotry in your doomed quest to try salvaging your ego is the funniest shit I’ve seen all year.
>>651328996Link it, I'm gonna post a laughing cat.
idk what you want to hear anoni'm at like 157 hours, at the very end of the game i assume a few trash fights then the end boss. after that i will reload to the save i made just before starting the end so i can quickly see the other endings if i choose other options.after that, somewhere down the line i will replay it as dark urge and get minthara. after that i will probably never play the game again unless magically someone wants to play it in multiplayer and there are difficulty mods like dos2 got for more enemies and such. realistically i will probably not play again until dlc if the dlc ends up being of a good size, because the game is not remotely finished its still early access as fuck in act 3 and all the just dead endings for quests that go nowhere
>>651328996it checks out
>>651329101There’s actually mods that increase the stats for enemies and a mod that adds more enemies to encounters (currently only for act 1 but it will be updated)
>>651315794Of course it's bots. Was this thread even necessary?
Why can't you be happy for a genuine success? Cinderella stories are rare
>>651328257>A turn based fantasy cRPG though? that's literally female repellant.Again you are wrong >>651328872Things off putting female in cRPG:1. Lack of aesthetics. cRPG very othen go with rudimentary art and graphics, letting players imagination fill the gaps. Male gamers are ok with just static character portraits, girls don't, especially they got taste from other genres.BG3 is AAA game with very detailed character models and animations, especially in dialogs, bread and butter of "graphics" of modern AAA games.2. Overwhelming complexity of the character building, especially at the start. BG3 does hand holding with default characters and leveling.
>>651315794its a long game
>>651325723I allege that OP is a faggotwhat do you guys think about this allegation?

>>651330964Elden Ring is longer for completionists, "harder" for the average gamer and it has a way more convoluted progression system than BG3, yet it has a better completion rate.BG3 just falls off hard in Act 3.
>>651315794The game is long, dude
>>651331148>it has a way more convoluted progression system than BG3It's literally "one attribute point for each level" how is that convoluted
>>651331148>Elden Ring is longer for completionistsIt isn't, you can see everything there is in the game in 1 playthrough bar the endings.>"harder" for the average gamerI wouldn't be so sure of that.>way more convoluted progression systemWhat does that even mean?
>>651331248Plot progression, moron.
>>651331148>Elden Ring is longer for completionists, "harder" for the average gamer and it has a way more convoluted progression system than BG3Literally none of these things are true lol
>>651331290Ah yes, my fault for not knowing that progression system doesn't in fact mean progression system but it actually means plot progression. My bad.
>>651331269>>651331315Holy cope.More people have beat Elden Ring despite that shit not having map markers or quick reload scam bullshit.
>>651315794I just finished my playthrough yesterday took me 125 hours and I'm not a "slow" gamer but I was already playing something else when the game got release so I had to finish it first so I started a little late
>>651331371>900k peak players>only 20% beat the gameLOL ELDON RANG BOTTED
>>651331438It's no secret Elden Ring filtered a lot of casual players.Still better completion rate than BG3's. Kek.
>>651331371What cope? Elden ring is objectively not longer than bg3, it is much shorter; it isn't more harder, they are both hard for the "average gamer", just in different aspects. And you didn't explain what's "convoluted progression system" mean.

>>651330601The cellarunderdarkgrimforgehags lairhave you done these? or the smugglers cave ?
>>651315794No man, it's possible that all these people have been playing this game for 2 months and still somehow only a laughable percentage actually finished the game ONCE. I don't see the conspiracy at all. And where would they get the bots in the first place? It's not that Tencent owns 30% of it and also has chink bot farms to boost their own games.
>GAMES CAN'T BE BOTTED! IT'S IMPOSSIBLE!>PLEASE IGNORE SF6! PEOPLE MUST BE PLAYING IT 24/7 WITHOUT SLEEP!This is your life on fake numbers.
>>651321629put me in the screencap
>>651330942Skyrim is arguably much bigger game than bg3, a lot more people played it. Following your own logic, the buzz around it is made up, because the achievement rates on steam aren't high enough for your made-up standards.
>>651331641Elden Ring is longer for completionists, retard. Learn to read.BG3 is also not long at all if you just go through main story.>it isn't more harderHoly kek, ER is much harder for the average gamer than this quick save-load simulator with difficulty levels.>And you didn't explain what's "convoluted progression system" meanI explained it. There are no map markers to lead you through the plot in Elden Ring, you can get lost pretty easily and wander fuck knows where. It's typical souls shit, even more so because it's open world, and unusual for the average gamer who needs their hand held.
>>651321629Microsoft isn't sending their best
>>651315794Let's assume 200k of these players are bots like you are inferring. What are they getting out of this? And why doesn't every other publisher bot their numbers up if steam charts matter so much?
>>651331709Nah, Elden Ring had a lot of buzz on release but casuals and the disabled dropped the game because they got filtered.Still better completion rate than BG3's kek.
>>651315845Here's the answer kek
>>651315794>botting a single player 60$ story gameogey
>>651332028If they botted the game, they wouldn't just turn off the bots all at once, because then it would be blatant.Your argument is garbage.
>>651332191Kek you got mindbroken hard, quicksave shitter.
>>651332193That's not the argument he is making, answer the questions:- what are they getting out of this- and why doesn't every other publisher bot their numbers up
>>651331971>Elden Ring is longer for completionistsIt objectively is not, like I said you can see everything within 1 playthrough minus the endings, which are just different cutscenes.>ER is much harder for the average gamerIt isn't. If you can't see why that is, it's on you.>There are no map markers to lead you through the plot in Elden Ring, you can get lost pretty easily and wander fuck knows whereSo? How does that make the progression more convoluted?
>>651332191Isn't that game hard though compared to the games posted in this thread
>>651332324kek fucking botted gamefrom shitware in shambles
>>651332330>What do publishers get out of botting numbersLiterally free publicity. There was multiple weeks straight about "the biggest game this year."People are sheep and will play what everyone else is playing.>and why doesn't every other publisher bot their numbers upSome already do. Capcom blatantly did it for SF6.Any more questions, bozo?
>>651332324wait so elden ring really did bot their players?wtf i didnt expect that from them
>>651332504>Literally free publicityHow it can be free if it uses bots and what kind of bots would be needed to modify steam data retard? How many bots would you need for a peak of 800k players?>Some already do. Capcom blatantly did it for SF6.Proof? If it's blatant then it must be easy to prove it.
>>651331973Interesting, about as high as it was for Their last game, DOS2 when you left Act 1.
>>651332324How did FROM get away with this? Literal blatant botting, holy fucking shit.
>>651332053>rollslop with summon system>filtering anyonedelusional fromtroon
>>651332352>It objectively is notIt objectively is. Beating every boss and clearing the map secrets in ER takes longer than doing all the main+side shit in BG3. >It isn'tIt is. Elden Ring punishes retards and sends them back to square one to replay entire sequences.BG3 is super casual friendly. It's a literal fucking quicksave-load sim.>How does that make the progression more convoluted?Retards literally don't know how to move the plot in ER because they need to read logs and deduce a path themselves.BG3 gives you map markers in an already small world.
>>651332687See:>>651331851Notice how you shills ignored this post.There is botting going on. How they're doing it, how much it costs, and if it's even profitable, are all questions that are irrelevant.
>>651330792>>651330828I don't know what it is but something about this face just cracks me up every time
>>651332804>It is. Elden Ring punishes retards and sends them back to square one to replay entire sequences.>Square 1 being 10 meters away from the boss door.It's 2023, nobody buys the "fromsoftware games are hard" thing anymore
>>651332776Filtered tons of people. Casuals don't like having to replay entire sequences as they keep failing a boss.The quicksave sim BG3 is filtering people because it's fucking boring as hell in Act 3.
>>651332804>It objectively is. Beating every boss and clearing the map secrets in ER takes longer than doing all the main+side shit in BG3.Couldn't be more wrong. Post your BG3 and ER playtimes. I do pvp in souls games, that's the only reason why ER is higher, the game itself is much shorter. Something tells me you haven't even touched baldur's gate.>muh quicksaveThat's just disingenous, like everything you say. I also can call ER roll simulator in the same vein.>Retards literally don't know how to move the plot in ER because they need to read logs and deduce a path themselves.BG3 gives you map markers in an already small world.Doesn't make it more convoluted.
Schizo's has been broken by ER.
>>651332921I can summon the mimic and sit on my controller and still beat most bosses in the game>B-but if you used [insert thing here] you didn't beat the game!Then if you ever save scummed you didn't beat BG3 either, retard.
>>651332808>How they're doing it, how much it costs, and if it's even profitable, are all questions that are irrelevant.No, they are completely relevant, in fact they are essential to understand and if you can't answer them then the entire thing crumble.And that pic doesn't tell me everything: fighting games are insanely popular and have pull over the entire globe from South America to Japan, it's quite easy to see why they would have a constant player stream compared to other kind of games.
>>651332808>there’s botting!!!>and no, you’re not allowed to question anything. Just take me at face value please
>>651332895You're delusional. Most people don't play soulshit, its punishment mechanics and lack of coded difficulty levels are frustrating to the average gamer.
>>651326241>being given freedom of choice toddler sandboxhow the fuck is being careened into specific paths not the toddler experience?
>>651333092>most people don't play soulshitNigger, ER is one of the biggest games of the past decade with one of the biggest sub-reddits, period. It's a normalfag game through and through
>>651333092>summon once>entire game beaten>50 bajillion bonfires within 5 feet of each other>Fast travel unlocked from the startWow, nice ‘difficult game’ you have here
>>651332808because your post doesnt include bg3 data for comparison and we both know why that is so why bother?
>>651333058Retard, most people don't even have the patience to acquire and upgrade mimic or summons in general. It takes effort.Quicksave-load and changing difficulty to casual in BG3 doesn't. It's easy as hell compared to Elden Ring.Completion rate drops off in Act 3 because BG3 gets horrendously boring, and the mystery reveal at the end of Act 2 was a retarded writing decision.
>>651333092>>651333365Hello? Your ER and BG3 play times, sister? Where are they? I'm waiting >>651333036
>>651333076No other game follows this trend. Every chart is always US centric because they have the most players. It doesn't matter how many fans are in Japan, there's always more people in the US, which gives you peaks and troughs.>>651333086>I'm too stupid to read a graph, thus you have no proof!Thanks for playing>>651333225And you're too stupid to understand the argument. If you admit botting is going on then the "botting is impossible" argument is bunk. Capcom was just incredibly obvious with it.
>>651333186Faggot, Elden Ring is nowhere near as friendly to casuals as BG3, yet still has a much better completion rate.
>>651315794>>651315845Its people with OCD opening ALL the empty crates and stuff that doesnt get highlighted with ALT 5 times over per playthrough, plus attempting to talk with every single corpse and animal. With all the different disguise options. Every playthrough. And starting the game again before act 2 because they want to try an entirely different build for each character because of choice anxiety
>>651333092>>651333365>>651333423Sister, why are you ignoring my post? >>651333036Could it be you don't play videogames?
>>651333365>elden ring has low completion rate because it's... le filter>bg3 has low completion rates because it's boringProve it's not the other way around.
>>651333472Don't bully the fromtroons, they're mentally deficient.
>>651330007You mean that subscription service people use so they dont have to buy the actual game?>whats next, comparing seeder count between torrents?
>>651333387>then the "botting is impossible" argument is bunk.Right. An argument nobody actually made is bunk. Good for you. Now add BG3 player count to that and compare. If you want to convince anyone those numbers are botted, prove it.
>>651333472Because you're an autistic retard. Elden Ring requires reaction time and good enough memory to "roll sim". Quicksave-reloading in BG3 requires 0 effort, you mong. Yet people don't want to complete this boring ass game.>>651333498ER has a much higher completion rate than BG3, especially when you take multiple endings into consideration. Only BG3's is low as fuck, because Act 3 sucks donkey balls.
>>651333387>Every chart is always US centric because they have the most playersDepends on the kind of game, and the correlation between the two sentences "no other game follows this trend" therefore "it's botting" has no connection between each other unless you can explain how, why and how much it costs for this to happen. How fucking hard it is to answer these questions if it's blatant?
>>651333818Tsk, still not seeing playtimes.That's too bad, looks like your opinion means jack shit then :^)
>>651333720So you agree that botting is a possibility. You don't have to agree BG3 is botted, just acknowledge that it's possible and that the numbers are untrustworthy.Thanks for playing.
>>>651325557>I won't let you sit here and try to pick apart my criticisms of DOS2, and that's just too badwhat a nigger, can't even handle being refuted
>>651315794who fucking cares about steam activity?>Only sweaty dudes in basements do, thats who'Mimimi theres BOTS keeping those numbers up'I wouldve never even looked at those statistics before it was mentioned cause I was too busy playing and enjoying the game>Muh metricsPlay games you enjoy, do not play games you do not enjoy, Pirate games you're on the fence about if they have no demo (devs fault for not having a demo to see if its worth your money)>But muh other peopleWho gives a shit about other people playing?Who cares about this dickwaving contest with starfield?Who cares about someone spending literal money (lol, lmao) to make it seem like the game is played more then it is?Who cares about people making claims that someone is spending literal money (lol, lmao) to make it seem like a game is played more then it is?Only devs care about those metrics so its probably assblasted devs again being mad about ???
>>651325743a bear can pass the harkness test
>>651333872>muh personal playtime in 150 hours of cutscenesAnecdotal. You're a mongoloid.BG3's completion rate is 10%, with a huge drop off in Act 3.Elden Ring's is above 25% despite the fact that the game is harder for the average gamer.
>>651334071I played both games, my opinion is automatically worth more than yours, becase, far as I'm concerned, you haven't played either of them.Bitch.
>>651333927>and that the numbers are untrustworthy.which numbers?
>>651334159How are they untrustworthy
>>651334071you got shit on bro
>>651334071>BG3's completion rate is 10% after one month>Elden Rings completion rate is 25% after 21 monthswow really makes you think
>>651334125I played both games too, retarded monkey. And I'm not fetching my playstation to give you my playtime in ER kek. It's well over 300 hours with ng+.BG3 is dogshit. It's boring as fuck in Act 3. I didn't even want to finish this garbage. Just like most people don't.
>>651334056Good luck fucking one then dogfucker>people unironically think theyre clever when they claim actually you could fuck an animal because xyNo matter the reason given you're still a dogfucker
>>651315794Starfieldpoos will never forgive bg3 uh
>>651334253>no playtimeI accept your concession.
>>651333927i acknowledge possibility that your mother is a whoreplease debunk this
>>651334253>ummmmmmmmm I won't show lolOk. So you haven't played them. Thanks for finally admitting.Bitch.
>>651334221Across multiple endings.You're never getting 25% in BG3 kek.
>>651333927>just acknowledge that it's possible and that the numbers are untrustworthy.No, I dont. Botting is a possibility. BG3 being botted is a possibility. Whether it actually is is for you to prove. And you can't, can you? It's why you're playing these word games
>>651334253bet your ass gapes about as wide as your mouth rn kek
meanwhile this game is still top seller on steamstay made shizo
>>651334338Whose to say Fromsoft didn't bot their achievement percentages as well?
>>651334264you're talking about a fictional world with all kinds of creatures, if you can't figure out why an adult sentient bear would be ok and a 1000 year old loli isn't then you may be a pedophile in denial
>>651334303>>651334316>>651334386Seethe and cope. Nobody wants to finish your quicksave sim.
>>651334202From the blatantly botted SF6 numbers. You just said nobody ever said "botting is an impossibility." Are you retracting this now?If botting is a possibility then the numbers are untrustworthy. Keep up.
>>651334253>he actually played ER on playstation in glorious 720p40fpsMan the more you post the more I pity you
>>651334423you got btfo kidscram
>It's blatant>how does it work?>don't know, just trust me
>>651334423>>651334463>no argumentGot it.>>651334451Not the same guy, schizo.
>>651328486doesn't tencent have stocks that don't allow them to interfere in the company? i forgot the proper term
>>651334357I don't care what you think about BG3 and bots. I personally don't even have an opinion on BG3. I'm just sick of people treating steam numbers as facts.
>>651334451>If botting is a possibility then the numbers are untrustworthy.And if BG3 numbers are untrustworthy, it should be provable just like how you did with SF6. This isnt hard to grasp
>>651334451you are fucking shizo retard morontencent not going to waste fucking dozens or hundrends millions of dollars to make your ass hurtplease kill yourself
>>651334423Kek what a bitch.
>>651334536So BG3 numbers are untrustworthy because another game.made by a completely different dev in a completely different genre is botted. Got it.
>>651334482>Can you explain the intricacies of how the federal reserve rips off the working class? HA YOU CAN'T? I guess the federal reserve is perfect! Take that!You are so fucking stupid it's baffling.
