I decided to set up a thread about things we don't want in the next game. While the discussions in the three things you want thread are good I'm wondering if the disagreement aren't discouraging people from posting their wants.
So, I propose that we discuss and argue in this thread and let the other thread just be just about what we want.
I don't want:
1. Never Winter Nights
Many of the comments is the other thread indicate an easy modifiable game with multiplayer support. To my mind this sounds like NWN -- a game I didn't like. I mean it was okay but if someone made NWN EE is would yawn and go about life.
Why not go for easy to mod? Because this comes at a cost -- I've never seen an easy to mod game that didn't look terrible and have a generic feel. Looking at you Sword Coast Legends.
2. Evil Edition
I never play evil and that content is just lost for me. If you go for 50 percent evil, I'll miss 50 percent of the game.
Yes, let the people who want to play evil put together a party but don't make it half the game and don't create quests like Dorn's where people who don't play evil can never experience them.
BG2 got it right -- evil options should be there as potential failures on the charname's part.
Now what I did like about BG2 were the redemption stories -- that fit perfectly with the plot. Can you overcome the evil inside you? Can Viconia, born in the dark, come to appreciate the light? I even thought someone was working on Mazzy redeems Korgan plot . . .
And 5th edition makes it clear that evil alignments are for villains and monsters. And I'm glad to see the game return to the roots.
3. Multiple Camera Angles / Shooter view.
Isometric, god's eye view.
