Lol! (Criticism)

You never once said consumables. You said “inventory.” Are weapons not a part of the player’s inventory, in the general sense of the word?

That’s always been your problem—you spew vague arguments and then pretend like it’s our fault we can’t keep up with your non-specific arguments.

He said it here:

"I am talking about consumables and things like that, as well as things like engrams. You still pick up engrams even when your inventory is full… they just go to the postmaster which is an extra step. Again, because there is only so much room on screen and everything must fit."

And then claimed I didn't read his words.

What he's doing is making a broad claim and then going further and further out on a limb in specificity until we get to nonsense considerations like "find X weapon in Y amount of time in the Vault", a completely meaningless use case that he believes props up whatever claim he was making about form over function.

All to try to legitimize the claim that Bungie's UI is all about "spectacle".
