Why do you think it’s mostly Xbox gamers? If you read them and not cherry pick, they are complaining about the story and Neil Druckman in general. An Xbox gamer has no reason to crap on Neil Druckman.
You blind, drunk or smoked too Much of that good stuff?
First i didnt even talked about Xbox gamers second do you think i give three shits to bother to read What some loser that didnt even played the game as too say in their 0/10 "review"?
I know there can be tension in these threads, but don't go overboard with personal attacks.
Especially when you have a history of doing things like this. You need to start showing some improvement in this area.
As such you'll no longer be able to participate in this thread.
Ah, the 'in general' of bad writing that people who have already played the game have pointed out.
My mistake. Next time I won't judge a story after I experience it, but rather after reading opinions devoid of any context.
Also, you said that 'for some reason' I didn't have the same opinion as you on the story I had barely just started.
I'll be sure to express the same opinion as you next time.
Yeah, you can do that if you want, or still like it regardless of bad writing
You have your own opinion regardless. I never said you had to express one like mine, but the user reviews are telling in the end.
Well on a serious note, someone playing the game would probably not want to read any reviews containing spoilers.
And without the context of specifics it can be quite difficult to understand why someone feels the way they do about the writing.
So whenever I see comments like 'the story is great/sucks', it doesn't really say much to me.
The scene you were referring to for example has additional context revealed as you keep playing. And as I keep playing, I understand more and more why they chose to write the story in the way they did. So I'll have to wait until the end before I say something definitive about how I think it was written.
I have in the past jumped to conclusions about segments being poorly written, only to have something revealed 30 hours later that made me look back at that moment in a very different light. (Nier: Automata)
Also I'm not a professional critic of writing, so whatever I end up thinking in the end shouldn't be surprising. :p
