Divinity: Original Sin 2


It seems like memorable roleplaying games pour through the floodgates each year and players siphon hours of their lives away as they get enthralled in the next fantastic journey. This year, that's exactly what Divinity: Original Sin 2 did to me. Once again we found ourselves lost in building up our characters and party, taking on challenge after challenge. With each foe felled, each puzzle dealt with, each conversation mastered, we just became more and more absorbed.

With a large selection of playable races and their undead variants, and a plethora of options to progress through the game, it's both overwhelming and amazing how much freedom players are given through the events of Divinity: Original Sin 2. Whether making our way through a dungeon, searching every nook and cranny for hidden loot, or trying to smooth talk our way passed an encounter that would otherwise decimate us, we were hooked to Divinity: Original Sin 2 from start to finish.
