You won’t find Baldur’s Gate 3 on sale this Cyber Monday. And yet, we believe it’s still one of the best video game deals this holiday season. Across the Polygon team, we’ve collectively put hundreds — if not thousands — of hours into the CRPG. Considering the current bleak forecast for big video game releases in 2024, we expect to invest a few thousand more.

If you’ve somehow resisted the charms of Baldur’s Gate 3 to this point, you presumably have a few questions before making a purchase. Is Baldur’s Gate 3 really that good? Is it too complex for someone new to the genre? Do I need experience with D&D?

Yes. No. Definitely not. Baldur’s Gate 3 is the perfect entry point for role-playing games broadly and Dungeons & Dragons specifically. On our team, it has consumed the lives of our most weathered gamers and gaming-dabblers alike.

Here are a few stories we’ve published over the past couple of months to give you an idea of what the game (and its community) has to offer:

Yes, Baldur’s Gate 3 is still full price, but in terms of value, this game has more ideas, more ambition, and for the time-concerned, more hours of entertainment than 99% of its contemporaries. I suppose it’s not a surprise then that Baldur’s Gate 3’s developers would take the Nintendo approach of making games so good, you don’t need to put them on sale.
