    And then someone is surprised that LOTR elves and Cinderella are, in fact, black.

    Based, slavs are in fact not white according to KWA. Now someone summon rusty for he is late for his bend the knee ritual.

    Officially - none. And, I'm afraid, in reality, none as well.

    I'd be surprised if he didn't write anything. They were the only dev that didn't give him the boot when the false accusations came out

    After he had been cancelled he spent a year in private. I doubt he would have been very productive during that year.

    By your logic Abby from last of us 2 is the best character in the video game history.
    Hero making you mad or annoyed does not equate to them having good writing, you dipshit.

    She is, indeed, very good - don't know if she is "the best". The game is very successful at hammering into the player's heads the idea that revenge is futile. The fact that most of the players do not like this idea is a completely different matter.

    Also, if someone here is the fan of "A Song of Ice and Fire", I think similar rude awakening will happen to us there. That is, if GRRM lives long enough to finish the series.

    So… It’s good writing because it drills something into your head? Even if it’s contrived and poorly done?
    What the fuck?

    I ll take the last five years as indicator to name just a few (no doubt there are many more, its an extremely low bar to clear):
    Vagrus - very good
    Greedfall - by no means a good game, but tolerable story and atmosphere, heads & shoulders above of both pathfinders
    Battle Brothers - very good
    Spellforce 3 - above average, but deffo better writing than both pathfinders
    West of Loathing - Top notch comedy writing
    And even the much-maligned (but eventually somewhat redeemed at the codex) Vendetta: Curse of Ravens Cry.

    Can you Cringefinder people not at the very least have the dignity to pass by this thread; ignore it and instead roll around in your own excrement like the pigs you are, praising your enjoyment of shit-demons and cuckoldry and trannydom. Have you no dignity? Trying to argue against your abject humiliation for the sake of degenerate pleasure.

    It's people who came into "writing" from copywriting. Hurr durr, the point of our ad campaign is not to convince people that our product is good, it is to be so fucking annoying that they will remember our brand for the rest of their lives. And don't forget the obligatory "reee, hate us more, it's free brand advertising, yahooo".

    Sorry, but if a character I am supposed to "empathize" with makes me want to stomp her head into pavement, you fail as a writer, go back to penning retarded Skittles commercials.

    Are you supposed to "emphasize" with Winston Smith after his failure or is Mr. Orwell a bad writer? Whom are you supposed to "emphasize" in "Anna Karenina"? Anna? Old Karenin? Vronsky? Or did Leo Tolstoy work for Skittles as well?

    I really wish Desiderius was here now.

    I never thought this thread would devolve into unironic defence of the garbage fire that was TLOU2.

    Yes you empathize with him throughout the whole novel, even after his failure, maybe especially after it. Just because a character is flawed or fails doesn't mean you can't empathize or identify with them. Jesus Christ.

    Then why people here define good writing as something with "male paladins" instead of telling a good story that connects the reader to the setting and the characters, be they good, bad, annoying or even evil?

    Why is it garbage? You don't think that "an eye for an eye" is bad? Neither do I, but how does it make the story worse? You can disagree with the main idea, but to invalidate the whole story only because you disagree with its message... seems strange.

    I don’t “disagree” with the stories message. I hate the story because it’s poorly written woke garbage that is subversive for subversions sake.
    Now can we all stop fucking arguing about shit that has nothing to do with the subject of this thread?

    They're not you're just misinterpreting them or misrepresenting them because you're stupid.
