Bingo. Like I said before, PS:T should be the standard of all CRPGs where it comes to story quality.

"the themes themselves resonated with me."

That's true. The themes, for the most aprt, were hit on really well. It's what connected with me more than just the writing itself.


"Bingo. Like I said before, PS:T should be the standard of all CRPGs where it comes to story quality."

Nonsense. if that were the case, PST's writing would be merely average hence it would not be very memorable. It's memorability comes from the fact that it is special. Just like FO's remembered because its in a class of its won when it comes to freedom in a CRPG. And, BG series is memorable because it pretty much is the epitome of epicness in CRPGs accomplish so many things at once. If these qualities were shared by all games on average; gaming would likely be boring because all games would be the same.

*yawn*

It's the average games in their avergaeness that makes the special games like PST, FO, and BG stand out.


That is all. :ermm:

How would they be the same? I don't follow your logic, Volourn. If PS:T story quality and Fallout open style gameplay were standard, game developers would actually try to exceed those standards. For those who want average games we would still have rhigher quality than the current drek and crap we are getting now.

I don't want to go through 6-7 years without a near perfect game.

Well, I think this thread has collapsed upon itself.
