According to the OpenCritic review aggregator, Baldur’s Gate 3 has become the best game of all time.

The role-playing game from Larian Studios, which currently has a cumulative media rating of 97/100, has not only become the best game of 2023, but also beaten Switch games Super Mario Odyssey (2017), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (2017) and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (2023) in the overall ranking of games of all time.

It’s interesting that all Top 20 games in OpenCritic statistics were released within the last 10 years. Someone else says that the golden age of video games was in the 1980s and 1990s.

On Sunday, August 13, 2023, Baldur’s Gate 3 updated its record for the highest number of simultaneous online players by 70 thousand. The new record is 875,343 online players. The increase in the number of players two weeks after the release is quite rare for video games that do not yet have significant discounts or major updates.
