As someone who actually liked DAII and appreciated what the writers were trying to do with it even if they made a lot of mistakes that unfortunately sent them scurrying away from the backlash back towards the save-the-world-cliche plot, I'm definitely looking forward to this one. I'm just hoping they didn't swing too far towards Skyrim and make the story too sparse. I don't like that everyone is trying to go super open world now. It'd be exhausted if I had to play a bunch of games like that - a few years between each Elder Scrolls game when they were the only one of its kind was perfect (and if I didn't like the new one I'd be in the mood to replay Morrowind). Plus, Dragon Age and the Witcher have a particular style I appreciate and I think it's dumb to throw that away just because Skyrim is the rage.
Now, if the Skyrim references are for marketing and the game itself has the more constrained exploration of Baldur's Gate, THAT is something I would be psyched about.
