Maybe to you, but not everyone was a D&D veteran when Baldur's Gate was released. It introduced a whole new generation of gamers to D&D.

I had already been playing RPGs for years at that point, but I never got into the Gold Box games, and I wasn't a PnP gamer despite owning several of the Monster Manuals. I didn't even know what THACO meant before playing BG.
