U can try at least.
I had exectly the same thoughts before buying it and i havent regret a single minute in it even tho i never was a fan of this kind of games. But its fucking amazing, i had a lot of fun.
Cant wait for baldur's gate 3 out of EA.
I wasn't sure about it either but i bought recently and put over 100 hours in a playthrough and I can say it's one of the best games I've played in recent years. No cheap quests, over 100 hours of awesomeness.
