The more I play this, the more I feel like giving up.
Hello everyone. So I'm making this thread due to seeing that Baldur's Gate I or II are considered the magnum opus of RPGs, be it old or new. I played the Enhanced Edition for a while and well... I felt overwhelmed by the sheer infodumping of the D&D system. I never, ever, touched a D&D game, be it computer or board game, and I just find it too confusing.I've understood enough by now to play melee,but that's pretty much it. I've reached Chapter IV using a guide for exploration and finding out where the side quests are, and don't feel like I'm having fun playing it. Now I'm a big Bioware fan, loved KOTOR I and II, played DA:O, (won't mention Mass Effect as it's different in terms of combat) and could handle the combat and mechanics, but BG just seems like a colossal endeavor. Ever since the Friendly Arm Inn I've felt like just quitting the game and returning to Skyrim or another RPG. Does it get better later on? Should I keep playing for the sake of it being "THE RPG"? Or just say "Screw this and all who say I'm dumb for not understanding or liking D&D."? Thank you for reading this.
TL;DR: After hearing no modern RPG compares to this game, tried it out and was overwhelmed by it's D&D infodumping. Reached Friendly Arm Inn and the game stopped being fun. I'm in Chapter IV and feel like qutting, even though I love Bioware and it's games. Should I keep going for the sake of it getting better or give up and admit D&D rules and systems are too complex and have no patience for them? Thank you for reading.
