DISCUSSION

Picked this up recently because I was wanting to play a well-written RPG. It’s a great game - the writing is believable and entertaining, and the characters are super engaging.

My only complaint, and it’s probably just me, is that getting myself to play it is exhausting. The game is not for the faint of heart - it’s really fiddly. There’s a ton of flexibility to how you want to play, which is a blessing and a curse. I dread level-ups, because you end up having to make a huge series of important choices related to stat and skill choices. I end up questioning what I want my characters to be since there’s so much freedom, and if there’s skills I should be buying. I realize I have no idea what I’m doing, followed by analysis paralysis, and I psych myself out of playing.

I think there’s an auto level up option for characters, which I’ve considered, but the other thing is that this game is surprisingly hard. I feel like if I’m not optimizing to some degree, I’m gonna have a bad time when it comes to big encounters. Maybe auto-levelling is what I should do to enjoy it, though, because the story, world, and characters are really, really great. Anyone tried that out?

(I also have that problem I have with picking a party in Bioware games, where I get major FOMO about the storylines of characters I don’t have with me at the time. Not sure how to solve that one yet.)
