Bungie: Good at setting, bad at story (Fan Creations)

I think it’s the other way around. The writers are doing their part to get the right words and dialogue in there. For instance, see the Grimoire. It’s the gameplay that isn’t letting the characters prove what they are saying. In D1, a part of that must have been the disarray that the engine troubles gave Bungie. For D2, at least some part of it might be that there hasn’t been time to show it. Criticizing characters for not showing their new points of view when we’re right at the end of a chapter isn’t entire fair.

Imagine if Ikora takes a more proactive stance in this first expansion. Like, if she takes risks and operates on the principle that just relying on immortality is no longer good enough. I somewhat doubt it will happen. Not as dramatically as I wish it would. But the chance is still there.
