And you first reaction was to pick drivel as opposed to authors of non drivel. This is a you problem.

Please expand on your second point. Tell me how Douglas Adams, C.S Lewis or Tolkien are lacking.

Please provide examples. Opinions are not evidence.

Anecdote is as good as anecdote. Objective fact is where it is at. So far you don't understand characterization or the different between a plot point or a plot line so please stop presenting your opinion as fact or authority.

I am here to discuss a video game. Please do not try to rope me into anything other than that. Thank you.
