Surely the developer must be commended for composing this huge dialogue system. The text dialogue is the heart of the Inquisitor game - its what the game play progression relies on and does so in a most admirable way.
No, I don't know anyone who talks in the way the characters of that game talked. I'm not sure about the rest of you but if I asked a character a simple question and he blurted out the encyclopedia of data on the subject I would walk away before he was done. Just because they put a ton of text does not mean it was excellant. Like others have said, it was tell not show in the game.
