This is where I really risk showing my negativity.

That lore is all great, and I am genuinely glad it exists, but even that seems like a cop out, because it exists in place of any actual narrative that should drive the video game they make. Like, even the lore books themselves seem like a sort of creatively bankrupt shortcut used instead of writing an actual story and making cutscenes. That’s admittedly in a better situation than it used to be, but it still seems like they lean on those lore books to make anything happening in the game have any narrative meaning whatsoever.

EDIT: I don’t actually know how to phrase it, but calling it “creatively bankrupt” is far, far harsher than I actually intend. What’s a much softer version of that?
