Guy N said:I take kyogen's comment to mean that "you must decide for Yennefer or for Triss, and the other one is out of your life" is too simple, too black-and-white.
Yes, thanks. That's what I meant.
I've nothing against severe consequences for any choices made. I've a great deal against oversimplified and OOC resolutions.
15.02.2013 @ 12:38My post doesn't say that players shouldn't have any choice. It says that I don't want the outcome of this choice to be an all or nothing affair. CDPR is doing both the material and the players a disservice if it wraps relationship questions up too cleanly when it's been established in the books and the previous games that relationships are complicated even when they're "over." I also don't like the idea of simply ignoring all of a character's established personality and behavior patterns in order to service cheap, clear-cut melodrama. It might be easier to write, but it would still be poor storytelling.
15.02.2013 @ 02:58I never suggested that the games were canon, but they carry their story and characters over directly from the books and are dependent on them for their entire background lore. It doesn't matter that most players haven't read them for that reason; they still matter to the in-game universe. And no, I would not like CDPR to suddenly break completely with the close adherence to Sapkowski's universe they've shown so far simply for the sake of being "different." That would not entertain me at all.
15.02.2013 @ 02:52That's a nice read, Blothulfur. Good job! I agree with Revan1 about Triss, though. I don't read her the way you do.
