    He knows the series well despite his insistence on pissing off the entire community here with his politics...imo his torch carrying for Bethesda reaches excessive levels but it is usually rational.

    He has become more irrational in his defence of Fallout 4 though.

    I read some of his defense of Fallout 4 and a lot of it is complete nonsense.

    I wouldn't say it's nonsense, especially considering how much detail he goes into. I will agree he's a bit over defensive of F4 but he knows quite a bit. I enjoyed his post regarding Rivet City's reactor and the Prydwen.

    Not really nonsense. He maintains it isn't a good RPG which it isn't but it is a decent game with decent writing which it is. It is just a shit Fallout RPG mired by a stale old ass formula. He is wrong because he supports it.

    Fallout 4, decent writing?

    In regards to the companions. Yes. There is just no choice in the matter. Keep in mind we are speaking about games in which THE LAST OF US is heralded as the sign of good writing.

    Also Planescape Torment only has good writing because they went to the philosophy aisle at the bookstore. Most of it is not that original.

    Yes, nonsense. This man seriously defended the removal of skill points. Going into detail doesn't mean it's not nonsense. And good writing? Please tell me you're joking. Even if it was removed from the series, the writing is stupid on all accounts. And that includes companions.

    I am sure someone can have a hell lot of fun with F4, and I havn't played the game so my opinion on it is kinda well, take it with a grain of salt. But what I have seen so far, didn't impress me. And it seems the writing has been a huge criticism by many people that played it.

    I think the main issue Norzan is that you're implying ALL of Tagaziel's statements are nonsense. After all that I've read from him I'm honestly not seeing it. We can all agree that stuff like the removal of skills is a downgrade but when it comes to background information Tag's knows his stuff.

    The issue is people cannot differentiate opinion from facts. It is perfectly acceptable to see the good in something but think it is shit.

    I SAY DECENT WRITING ABOUT FALLOUT 4 and someone gets butthurt. And you wonder why Tagz has a modicum of a point?

    Oh I get it. GOD BETHESDA CAN'T WRITE WORTH A DAMN! FUCKING ASSHOLES. I've been here since 2005 you want me to cry about it?

    Yes, Bethesda can't write for shit. Even Morrowind was already starting to show cracks and Oblivion was pretty much the beginning of the nonsense. Fallout 4 is pretty much the peak of this trend and trying to find small things to compliment the game doesn't change the whole. The whole of Fallout 4 is broken.

    This is all another fucking language issue. You aren't a native English speaker or you don't understand nuance which is funny since you claim you know DECENT writing. NOBODY IS ARGUING FALLOUT 4 IS NOT BROKEN! Haha fuck me running.

    Really don't think FO4 have decent writing even by bethesda standard, reading the dialogue in FO4 is quite unpleasant, i will say the game that at least have decent writing by bethesda standard will be Skyrim, you can actually feel it have much care put into it.

    @a721402 I'd argue that the nuances of TES comes from the writers that were around for Arena, Daggerfall and Morrowind. After that, the current writers mostly seemed to be riding the coat-tails of those writers (I've seen people argue that Skyrim is extremely deep because Skyrim is 'following' the stuff Kirkbride already wrote in Morrowind to some extent).

    Most of the debth in Skyrim comes from the player pondering if he should use a fireball or weapon to kill his enemies. That's pretty much the extend of the debth I discovered.

    To clarify, I meant depth in terms of story. Though I'd argue that the fireball or weapon pondering is not an example of death since everyone knows that the only depth there is how quickly players go back to being a stealth archer.
