The fact that you don't enjoy his works doesn't mean others don't, so claiming people shouldn't be learning from him is simply arrogant. It's as if your particular taste should dictate the direction of future RPG design.

Personally, I'd rather have more designers like MCA than less, so the more people learn from him, the better. Again, that's based on my personal RPG preferences.

In my opinion, he has created some of the most interesting characters in the entire gaming industry (Ravel, Kreia, TNO and so on). Any top list of characters on most RPG sites is bound to be full of MCA contributions, so claiming he has learned all the wrong lessons is simply not accurate. There are clearly a lot of people who value his work.

I'm well aware that you prefer open world RPGs to games like PST, but for people who prefer well written characters and C&C, MCA is as good as it gets.
