The reason why I feel there is a greater conversation to be had is due to Uncharted 4 and the departure of Amy Henning. Amy was supposed to be the better writer and story teller and a big deal was made about how everything will be worse without her, but here we have a big project Amy has worked on as a writer and the two biggest things which have torn the game apart by critics and gamers are elements that Amy has been involved in.
Amy Henning and Todd Swashtick are both credited as writers for this game. I know there are other writers, but knowing they played a part, does this change your opinion on Amy Henning and Neil with the whole Uncharted departures.
Amazingly, I would have thought reviewer's would have picked up on who's written the game story and dialogue considering how much of a big talking point this was during Uncharted 4 development, but this seems to have knowingly or unknowingly flown under the radar
You realise that Amy is only credited for Story Concept (in the actual credits of the game), and that she herself referred to her involvement as a creative consultant on the project.
She is neither the main story writer nor the driving force behind it's conception.
I'm not sure what the purpose is of your obvious negative framing, but it comes across as based on a very limited understanding of who did what in the game.
