    In fact, one of the things that DX:IW did a little better than DX (despite having enough flaws to prevent it being the better game overall) is that IW properly distinguishes between "dead" and...

    Yes. That is indeed what I said (that Robert Baratheon was not as smart as Henry, and thus the only bits that Henry gives to Robert are the lusty behaviour and the death/obesity in later life due to...

    Robert Baratheon wasn't as smart as Henry VIII apparently was in real life. (Although, clearly his death and later life are both inspired by Henry's injury when boar hunting, and his lusty behaviour...

    I dunno, it's equally confusing, if not more so, with Mass Effect 1 (for example) - a highly trained soldier who apparently can barely use any of their abilities when they start out (it's especially...

    It's certainly confusing. (At least some games get around this by having you lose your memories/recover from a coma/otherwise get "reset to zero" at the start... but for the average protagonist, it...
