"I'm sure you're all asking why we aren't doing something more specific to loot boxes," Vance said. "And I'll tell you we
've done a lot of researchare getting a lot of money to not do anything. Like, a LOT of money. So we're not going to do anything. Let's be honest, we're just a mouthpiece for the publishers anyway."
At least be honest about it, ESRB. "Research among parents" my ass.

It may seem that way, based on the steam charts we see here regularly and how much Skyrim was up there, but GTA V is really in a league of it's own. GTA V has actually sold about 3x as many copies as Skyrim to date. Over 90 million now. It's the best selling game ever in the US, also. Skyrim is the best selling Elder Scrolls game by a wide margin though, but GTA really is in a league of it's own, amongst other massive franchises like Tetris, Mario and Zelda.

Haha, what the heck are you talking about? Gun are the main problem. There are crazy people across the world, but when you have readily available guns you wind up with the huge issues the US has.

If that were true, violent media affecting kids, explain why we all didn't grow up to be mass-murders watching violent cartoons and TV shows. Spending my formative years in front of the boob tube watching Bugs Bunny dropping anvils on peoples heads never game me the impulse to do it. Nor did I ever fail to understand the difference between fact and fantasy. Somehow the overwhelming majority of people out there have watched violent media their whole lives without turning into mass-murders.

i finally pulled the trigger on the hardware for a system rebuild on my game machine after going without for about half a year, i7-8700k and related accouterments. i was really hoping buttcoins would keep tumbling, video card prices were creeping back to sane for about 2 or 3 days there when the price was at 6000 (1060 6gbs were going for 320 NIB on ebay, now they're back up to like 500 bucks.) guess i'm going to have to keep making do with my GTX 770.

It is pretty funny, no? I think multiplayer is where the main masses are at these days, sure exceptions. This game though once most play it, well after first release, agree it's pretty darn good.

Personally I don't want any government getting involved in anything video game wise, I also feel that when they do, rather than helping us, the gamers, they'll find a way to profit themselves while ignoring the core of the problem.

Not literally BG3, or at least the versions you are talking about, in which you are correct. But a BG style game of their own making, which was supposedly going to use their updated BG engine, and be developed in house.
I swear I remember reading about it on their forums a year or two ago, but looking at their web page now, all they list is Enhanced NWN and Planescape Torment as upcoming/new projects. If so, maybe that's why Gaider quit, all Beamdog has planned for a few years is revamp projects instead of anything new.
Beamdog probably looked harder at the cost of making a full RPG from scratch, and decided to either keep generating from enhanced versions first, or skip doing new stuff entirely.
