Still I'm not sure if Telltale will change their ways unless there's a drop in sales.
Dragon Age Inquisition was also a considerable length. It didn't look like they even cut the story in half. With Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, even the play hours were short.
Also what do you do in the city during New Year's Eve? In Sydney, everyone just goes to see the fireworks.
Also what do you think of moral ambiguity in Dragon Age Inquisition vs. The Witcher 3? Which game would you say does it better? Most people I know opt for The Witcher 3.
GTA has always had a weak story and that's why I was surprised that Rockstar managed to pull off a fairly good story in Red Dead Redemption. Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out this year. Did you like Red Dead Redemption?
Also did you dislike how BioWare handled The Crooked Man in Mass Effect 3? I heard a lot of people disliked it.
Also what did you think of the Mass Effect 3's ending backlash? Do you think it was justified or did fans go overboard? I think soem really did like the guy who tried to sue BioWare for the ending.
Anyway the films you mentioned do have an element of motherhood in them but I don't see how they explore motherhood. I think a story about motherhood should really explore the struggles of motherhood. It should show how a mother's life is changed due to her children. How a mother has to learn to make sacrifices for her children. It should explore how motherhood is a dynamic process and how everyone's mothering experience has to be different. For example, a mother has to behave fairly when she has another child otherwise her other kids will feel neglected. Etc
The films you mentioned don't seem to be about these topics:
Not Without My Daughter - This is more about the strained relationship between a husband and wife then a mother and child.
Aliens - I guess this does have some element but it isn't explore that much. Ellen Ripley barely talks to her daughter figure.
Bad Moms - Comedy films rarely have any depth.
Arrival - Once again this is more about communication between different species (which could be a metaphor for culture). The daughter is nothing more than vision.
I want a story akin to The Last of Us and The Walking Dead but I want Joel/Lee to be a woman rather than a man. Can you think of any stories like that from any medium at all?
