I’m just a bit concerned with your slavish devotion to Jim Walls when there really is no evidence of any sort to support such a position rationally, and I’m merely suggesting that there may be a lot you don’t realize about the situation with Jim. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that the actual writing in Police Quest 1 VGA was a hundred times more coherent, more substantial, and truer to the story than any of the previous three PQ games. And as much as you may believe Open Season was a failure at strong storytelling–which I can sorta agree with–Blue Force wasn’t much better so why would you try to tie that back to Jim?

I’m really not trying to start a fight here, I promise. Your post just threw up a red flag for me.

p.s. Thank you for acknowledging Adventure Gamers, but it’s not “my” site–it belongs to the adventure community. 🙂
