Is Baldur's Gate 3 the closest a video game comes to replicating the feel of playing a tabletop game?

Is Baldur's Gate 3 the closest a video game comes to replicating the feel of playing a tabletop game?

I've played a lot of CRPGs and really can't think of any that come closer.

      That's not even an RPG.

        It's genuinely more in a spirit of TTRPGs that the actual paper D&D is.

        It is a game where you play a role. You also role play, even on low RP servers.

          You play a role on almost any multiplayer game though, that's not the connotation of "RPG" unless you expand the definition until the term is meaningless.

    No. AI Dungeon is the one that would be like an actual TTRPG session and even that has it's issues.

      An AI chatbot is not a roleplaying game.

        a game is defined by the existence of failure states, and AI dungeon has the failure state of low quality writing and death spirals

    TTS with any table top module feels more like a video game replicating the feel of playing a tabletop game more than BG3.

    So does Solasta.

    Does BG3 have a human DM? If not then it's still probably Neverwinter Nights 1.

    Surely, it's the original Baldur's Gate. I can't think of something that feels more like an archetypal D&D adventure. It's perhaps not actually like playing a real tabletop game, but I think it has the feeling of it more than anything else.

    Dragons dogma captured the feeling of random party adventures in dungeons more than any other game imo.

    If you’re talking purely from a mechanical standpoint, then yeah, baldurs gate or any other fantasy crpg like divinity or pillars of eternity
