This Fine Nation is Starved of Competent Leadership

Post by Ransom » Wed Jan 18, 2012 11:05

why is every organisation in skyrim comprised of blow-hard neanderthals without an ounce of common sense

seriously this game's NPCs are like the hydra's countless heads, only each one is more of a drooling idiot than the last and they all say each other's lines

the thieves guild fumbled their shit until they were nothing but a bunch of petty brigands, the dark brotherhood are pretentious has-beens, the companions are directionless goofballs who WHOOPS I ACCIDENTALLY MADE US ALL WEREWOLVES SORRY GUYS and the college of winterhold are a load of old cobblers who cares about those nerds anyway

i want one, just one NPC to even TRY to challenge my character intellectually. outwit me, you morons! i'm just a mute grunt that solves problems by swinging a sword about for a bit! it's either standing around waiting for me to solve YOUR PROBLEMS or just mindlessly charging at me without a thought to tactics. it's no fun being fucking sherlock when there's no moriarty!

bethesda is to be applauded for their subtle metanarrative. skyrim is actually a bleak fable of existential horror about a single thinking being - the player's character - plunged into a purgatory filled with dead unthinking drones with no goals or dreams or souls

the idea of there being any fiction worth keeping a secret in bethesda games is laughable

Why is skyrim filled with Neanderthals?
Hello, it's the home province of the nords! Jheeshse!
But seriously, you're right, every NPC says the same things.
What I can't stand is how everyone puts their hands on their hips as soon as you talk to them, leaning a bit back like a big shot.
