Why People HATE Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear


Amber Scott is definitely NOT a true writer. A true writer keeps true to the universe, to the lore, to the world, to the characters. When you start pouring in your own political ideology into something it becomes a work of propaganda. Baldur's Gate is a work of fiction. It's not a political manifesto. It's not a political platform or party. It's not a political ideology. More so, Amber Scott doesn't care that people may (and for good reason) find her writing as fake or artificial. That shows tremendous disrespect for the universe of Baldur's Gate, just as much as it shows for the fans. At the same time, it also shows disrespect for the LGBT folk; because poor writing for gay or transexual or straight characters shows the superficiality of the writer. Like that review Boogie showed in the vid, nobody blurts out with vehemence about their sexuality - especially in a gratuitous way. Also, the "real world" is not Baldur's Gate. And Baldur's Gate is not the "real world." This is what happens when people take themselves too seriously. Introduce your SJW views in your own game, don't infiltrate them into an already established & beloved IP - and if you are going to do it, at least do it meaningfully & with style (don't moralize to readers). SJW views (or views of any kind) are no excuse for poor writing.

  1. With these games I always feel as if I were the game of the game. But I guess I have stepped beyond the age when we like playing any more.

    1. I get what you're saying, Jacques. Frankly, I no longer play games the way I used to. But they don't make them anymore like they used to either. ^_^
