Hercanic wrote:The voiceover monologue, yeah, kind of stale. Here's an idea, Blizzard writers: ban the word revenge. Just throw it out of your vocabulary. This goes back to the classic literary rule of, "Show, don't tell." Language is broad and full of possibilities, so when all a character ever says is "Revenge! Vengeance! Avenge!" you've pretty much whittled their personality down to a single, boring feature. You could, maybe, I don't know, imply revenge is a motivation with clever, descriptive, and varied dialogue, rather than outright stating it. Blizzard writers just love this word too much, it's become their own personal cliché.
Man, Blizzard NEVER had a writing. The only reason it was good was because the actors made the difference, as Iskatu can clearly state. And we're talking about ever since Diablo I.
