Blizzard Entertainment created Diablo 4, and Baldur’s Gate 3 was created by Larian Studios. Both of these Gaming studios have different focuses when it comes to making the graphics of the game. 

The combat and looting environment of the Diablo 4 is witness to it being Grim and evil. Character models are so much more realistic. The visuals are so swift and flowing in sharpness that they take the player into the unknown Realms of darkness.

I believe people who are not big fans of action-packed, fast games with real-time combat modes and dark fantasy should not choose Diablo 4 to play. Those people who are not into a calm and cozy old-time environment with vivid sceneries and good friends on the same journey should avoid playing Baldur’s Gate 3.
