You complainers seem to have mistaken this piece of excellent nitpicking for some sort of review of the game. It's obviously not intended as such.

Agreed, it is bloated and over the top. But it's also spot on more often than not and quite entertaining.

And perhaps Shamus Young is making a veiled pitch to game companies; maybe the real message between the lines is that he could do a much better job himself. I don't mind. And Bethesda could probably do worse than hiring him as a writer for the next game in the series.

As insanely expensive as it is to make a game like Skyrim, or a "blockbuster" action movie for that matter, I'm amazed that companies settle for less than excellent writing before pouring money into other aspects of production. After all, words are cheap.
