Not sure if that's the reason, but most of us around here actually do agree that Wizardry 8 was pretty good.

Anyway, I'm not surprised Ian Currie's crew gave Brenda some sweet billing, since she was their only claim on the Wizardry franchise. Doesn't change the fact that Brenda went to them as a refugee after Sirtech crashed and burned, largely because of her, in my own estimation.

I ask because you're acting like you were actually there in the studio while it was being developed. I fully expected your usual troll-like response though.

But you're the big Deus Ex/Warren Spector fanboy aren't you? Everyone who is unhappy with the quality of RPGs in recent years should be looking at you. As for me, I hardly play them anymore. The only ones I enjoy at all are Bethesda's, which is a shame because I used to hate the Elder Scrolls games. Back in the old days, when other RPGs had charm, depth and complexity that Bethesda's titles lacked.
I'm sure we all appreciate that you're here to champion the cause of crpg hardcoreness.
