Why do I want to play this when I have Golden Axe...  Its pretty much the samething...  I was hoping for a dungeon crawling D&D not this...

Remember this in the arcade.

Kind of cool...but I still want Baldur's Gate back more than anything.

@BlackBaldwin D&D is probably the most complex in depth action side scroller to ever be created. Secret pathways, passages, secret moves, weapons, secret skills (my cleric can uncurse a cursed sword?), the list goes on and on.

You can level up, buy stuff, get new spells. etc

@BlackBaldwin welll you have been on a age of 15-20 am I right? and you had never play this game on arcades or anything else?..................................... THESE D&D are MASTERPIECES the top of the evolution of a genre of this era, the best ever made Beat & Up game Golden Axe were the first medieval side scrolling Beat and up and well executed game that I love so much on arcades and later on Genesis... BUT! well look a this, you are joking... right? comparing Golden Axe to D&D Shadow over Mystara... I MUST recomend this game for you if you like Dungeon Crawling ther's a LOT on this game even beeing a Brawler Game! its complexity and fun are on the same level..  google for it... and you also faound a way to play it on PC right now!... its a shame they will only upscaling to HD... THIS GAME diserves to be remade from the ground with real HD redesign...

@Poodlejumper What do you mean?

They have Baldur's Gate 1&2 on gog.com if you want them.

It's not like these are new D&D games ...or did I miss something

I'm actually 27 and I grew up playing in the arcades just like you.  Between playing the streets of rage series, x-men and golden axe 2 and 3 and a ton of other arcade games I just find myself enjoying the dungeon crawling side of D&D a ton more.  One of my favorite games of yester year of D&D was Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun back on mega drive.  But anyways if I can find a rom online I'll try to check this game out but its gonna be hard to change my mind though playing it in the arcades is one thing but on a pc its just not the same really..

@Episode23 @Saketume Serious guys it's not a tough statement to interpret but I'll spell it out anyways:

I want Baldur's Gate 3.  

I want more games like Project Eternity and Torment: Numenera back in the works.

I want AAA RPGs to move away from "Action RPGS" and "MMOs" and back to strategy and squad based fun. (Fat chance of that happening.) 

If I want to download BG1 or 2 off of GoG I will...I tried replaying them years ago...fun but I want new.

Seeing as how Baldur's Gate and The Chronicals of Mystart  are both Dungeons and Dragons it's not too far off topic.

@Poodlejumper

Then I understood what you said correctly. It's just that it made no sense in the context of the video. They're talking about re-releasing old games and you are talking about sequels to a completely different game. Bit off topic to say the least.
