There's the traditional way of telling a video game story using cutscenes and character dialogue, and then there's what Remedy is up to. The Finnish developer takes these two staples and goes with them to the city, using more colorful ways to tell an interactive story like FMV and musicals in Alan Wake 2.

The main goal of Baldur's Gate 3 is actually a very simple one: remove the parasite that the Mind Flayer placed inside your head at the beginning of the game. Otherwise it will turn into one. This goal is just the tip of the iceberg of the largest iceberg in all of gaming, though, as Larian Studios' RPG packs in over 100 hours of exceptional storytelling that puts most of the genre to shame. The adventure finally delivers on the promise of an experience that actually reacts to your decisions and changes the narrative accordingly, with many branches you can take and many endings you can end your story with. Baldur's Gate 3 is perfect for repeat playthroughs as there is so much to see and do, and it tells the best story of all: your story.
