Brimsurfer Posted March 9, 2016 Author Share Posted March 9, 2016 (edited) Here in PoE the game accepts the idea of a world tricked into believing in unreal gods as a universal truth and the story in the final act unfolds only with this realisation, although there was plenty of room in the game's plot to go in multiple directions before the final act but in the final act the story shamelessly narrowed down to the writer's personal disposition in real life and that's what called as biased, impure or contaminated storytelling. Like I said, all opportunity was taken from the player that would suggest otherwise (i felt like my wings were chopped and I felt trapped on the ground because before final act I was flying high....), there isn't even a single dialogue path or any contemplation that would indicate that there might be a possibility of actual Gods in the world of Eora or to suggest that there were flaws in Iovara's findings, even Thaos also failed to deny it......... there was only and only one message that was bluntly passed to players in the final act, all doors and corridors were deliberately closed and the game purposefully pushed the player in a singular direction that, 'the idea of existence of Gods is a lie, it is all just an elaborate and twisted plan to keep the affairs of the world in order........' I mean how blunt a story teller can get in his bias.....its just ridiculous....... Sounds like the writers were damned if they do, damned if they don't. Would you feel the writer was biased and pushing his thoughts on you if the story ended with all gods were real and infallible? How could the story have ended end satisfactorily to you? That's not true, i guess there will be some criticism always, but defending blatant and biased story telling by saying that writers are always damned no matter which way they go, is not justified...... I have already said what could have rendered the story unbiased, but its not up to me, it was up to the writer to be unbiased in the story telling......... I have only this to say, I am against portraying a concept as an uncontested or universal truth of any world and push the protagonist forward in such scenario by taking all opportunity away from him to create a contrast ......
