The Baldur's Gate games obviously made a *HUGE* impact on RPG's in video-games, and still features some of the best voice-acting I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. The "Enhanced Editions" have been phenomenal, and brought a lot of great quality-of-life improvements to some already-amazing games.
I'm curious, though, if there's ever been any discussion on whether the folks at Beamdog might consider making an all-new game? And if they did, what sort of stuff would you guys want to see?
For my part, personally I've always found it incredibly difficult to manage multiple characters, and to be blunt, I still find Magic to be super confusing. I'd personally really dig an option whether my teammates play totally by themselves, while I only have to worry about managing my own character (including just setting party members to auto-follow my main dude).
Beyond that, it would be cool to try and incorporate some genuinely new classes, or maybe even just flesh-out some of the "Unearthed Arcana" stuff? For example, I personally love the idea of a "Phoenix Sorcerer", or maybe even a "Martial Artist" that's super dark and violent, sort of like Akuma from the Street Fighter series (ie. "martial artists that practice self-perfectionism, see combat at the ultimate form of art, and even fight an opportunity to push themselves further").
I'm also a huge fan of having multiple love-interests to pursue, and not just "Here's the 'good' one, this one's evil, the other one is hot but vain, etc". Something BioWare was kind of bad about in some of their recent RPG's, though, is that there was no option to just "be straight", so I felt like I had to purposely be mean towards my buddies to prevent them from getting romantic. So, maybe not have characters flirt with you unless you sort of prompt it a little more?
Beyond that... I'd kind of dig a whole new art-style. Instead of going for photorealism, I wouldn't mind things being a bit more stylized. Doesn't have to be goofy or over-exaggerated like Warcraft or anything, but just more discernible silhouettes from a distance. Or maybe a more zoomed-in kind of view?
Anyways, that's just me! What about you guys? What would your personal wish-lists look like, assuming they get the chance to forge a new D&D game?
