Then maybe they should have made a preamble that says "You have to play this game like someone who was socialized with gaming in the 90ies. If you're younger than 35, consider buying another game,…

I'd love to hear how you managed to do that, Couch? Because Shenmue is Dreamcast exclusive and Shenmue 2 was only ported to Xbox. ;)

The declaration of weapon damage rates, for example "1d12" or "2d4". In BG you're always stumbling over such statements.

The times they are a-changing… Back in the days BG was categorized as simplification.
