Yes, I'm still mad about people who harassed me, bullied me 20 years ago.

I wouldn't want to meet you in RL if you shrug these things off by just saying "why, she's still angry anout that ?"
I wouldn't want to meet you in RL because you take things too light. You are not mature enough.

No, there aren't - and that's exactly (part of) the problem.

And that's probably the reason why I feel so uneasy with most of today's games.

Had she been making Adventure Games, then they would have been perfect for her - but unfortunately she ended up in a company making Action-RPGs.

And - to be honest - who does Adventure games nowadays ? Apart from a few european companies ?


Because "Action" always trumps "Story" nowadays.

And that's why "Action" lovers will ALWAYS harass "Story" lovers nowadays

I call this total focus on "Action" the "degeneration in PC gaming". The Action crowd has won and harassed all of the storytellers out off the industry. Hooray.
