Well, Blatherscythe, I can safely say you need to calm down. Deploying kittens. [spoiler:efd975cf3b][/spoiler:efd975cf3b] Anyway, I guess I can tell my reasoning for not e-mailing the guy or posting on his forums and, "going to a site which shares my hatred". 1. People have already pointed this out to him. Although the Escapist forums is filled with idol worship like every forum is (Yes, even ours. Don't fucking act like you wouldn't blow Tim Cain or Chris Avellone if you saw them), people have told him that the Courier has no amnesia, starts with stuff based on his skills, and has Traits that can be used to imagine a back story. However, he kind of just blew them off, and said, "Yeah, whatever, Fallout 3 still has a better story because hiking and getting Bible quotes from your fake Dad is like the most immersive shit ever," and then ran off and began writing more pretentious stuff. 2. Developers almost never read e-mails or their forums. No matter how indy this guy is (I looked up his company on Google. No results), he still is a developer, and they almost never respond to e-mails. Folks like Joshua Sawyer, a guy who likes taking time out of the day to clarify and discuss issues with his game, are rare in the industry. People take either the BioWare approach (Bitch about people being meanies and retreating into their hugboxes while their fans berate people who have opinions different than theirs), Bethesda approach (Never say anything to anyone, and let the fans do the bitching for them), or Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex: Human Revolution devs) approach (Only change something when outstanding criticism is aimed towards them, and cry about having to change their game). This idea IS shared among indy devs, as I remember Sawyer responding to an Indy dev who said he never reads his forums.
