"I think it's safe to say that Larian Studios turn-based RPG "Divinity: Original Sin 2" will go down as one of the best RPG's in history, because the game just happens to be that darn good" - Jack Davis, TGG.
I quit working at shoprite and now I make $35h - $80h...how? I'm working online! My work didn't exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn't be happier. Heres what I do, •••••••••>> http://tiny.cc/-online-jobs
“will go down as one of the best RPG's in history” 9/10? That is extremely high praise considering the company you are putting DOS2 with. The score doesn’t match though.
The score was 4.5/5, and that's almost a perfect five. Furthermore, come again?: “One of the most captivating role-playing games ever made” 10/10 – GameSpot “Larian's epic sequel is one of the best RPGs of the decade.” 9.6/10 – IGN “One of the greatest PC RPGs of all time” 9.75/10 – Game Informer
Maybe this is just because of how different scales translate, but there have been a ton of 9/10 RPGs over the years. Few of them deserve accolades as among the best “in history”. But I’m probably being nitpicky.
Does it matter?gamespot gave demon souls a 9/10 yet it still won goty even though it wasn’t their highest ranking game that year
Indeed they did, and sometimes grades isn't everything when it comes to GOTY's and whatnot.
@Razzer "Maybe this is just because of how different scales translate, but there have been a ton of 9/10 RPGs over the years. Few of them deserve accolades as among the best “in history”. But I’m probably being nitpicky." - Yes, so I guess that would mean 95% really. Well, my youngest brother just said the same thing about the game, and I trust him (both of us love RPG's). Furthermore, D:OS2 has an average grade of +92% via gamerankings.com ;)
To clarify, I also think it is one of the best ever. I just think "best ever" is closer to a 10 than a 9.
I understand, so no sweat ;)
It was nice, fun game. But personally, I played it through once and didn't have the urge to go for another try. I finished games like Dragon Age Origins 3 times, The Witcher 3 four times, Oblivion twice, Skyrim twice, Mass Effect 1 twice, Torchlight 2 twice, etc. I don't know exactly what it is about DOS2. Perhaps I'm a bit turned off by the turn-based aspect. Or maybe it was something else. But all in all, I enjoyed the one-time experience and that's good enough for me.
Aiight, so now we know, everyone has their own take on things.
