Baldur's Gate Fanatical Steam sale: a Beholder from DnD

Now that you’ve managed to claw yourself away from Baldur’s Gate 3, you’re probably looking for a similar RPG to invest far too much time into. Modern games like Witcher 3, Elden Ring, and Skyrim might scratch that fantasy itch, but if you want to revisit the Forgotten Realms, then BioWare’s two original games are a must. Luckily for you, they’re both are dirt cheap on Steam, but you’ve got to act fast.

While they’re not visually on par with Baldur’s Gate 3, the original games from Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer BioWare are still groundbreaking RPGs. If you like BG3’s penchant for DnD rules, like being at the whim of dice rolls for instance, the first two games are going to be right up your street.

CRPGs are coming back in a big way, between the likes of Sovereign Syndicate on Steam and Unforetold Witchstone from the creator of the Forgotten Realms universe itself, so if you want to experience some of the games that helped birth the genre, Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2 are great places to start.
