Bulkbu Posted August 27, 2014 Share Posted August 27, 2014 Don't you also think that the world they created is really hard to relate to? Every fantasy world is inherently foreign but in PoE's case names of countries, states, towns and folks feel so overly "made up". If you compare the naming of races and their background to Baldurs Gate, the Black Eye games, or even Lord of the Rings, things come accross as if a 12 year old boy had come up with them while playing with Lego. Don't get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against going against "high fantasy" conventions, but as PoE's universe is discribed at the moment it just doesn't feel right from a linguistic point of view. Also, the new races feel a little out of place. One looks like Na'vi, the other looks like demonspawn. That's were I question the intrinsic logic of PoE's races. Wouldn't Godlike always be outcasts of society (considering in-group, out-group thinking which is likely to be also found in a fictive world as well)? Wouldn't this have a massive impact on how every single dialog in the game unfolds? All the little bugs, too few character portraits and gameplay mechanics which have to be polished don't make me worry. But the points described above really make me sad since they're so important to make a RPG feel authentic. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
