->''"As the horrendous Black Beast lunged forward, escape for Arthur and his knights seems hopeless...

->''"The entire point of the original ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'' series is that human society has achieved perfection... That doesn't make for great storytelling, but hey, that's because GeneRoddenberry's point wasn't "I'm going to systematically make a movie that will have a broad appeal"; it was "I want to depict a utopian future, and I am willing to compromise narrative convention to accomplish that." He wanted to give the kids watching his show an idea of a peaceful world to try to make happen one day.\\\
But there's one thing Roddenberry never considered: ''Star Trek'' got super popular, and Roddenberry got super dead, so there was nothing stopping future writers from turning all the upper echelons of Starfleet [[{{Deconstruction}}into corrupt slug monsters]]. By the time ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space 9 ]]''rolled around, we had an episode where the hero lies, forges legal documents, indirectly murders a public official in order to trick an entire empire into going to war with his enemies, and then spends the entire episode justifying his actions to us, which is way better than watching Kirk punch lizard monsters, [[CerebusSyndrome thinks no one in the world.]]"''\\

->'''Yahtzee:''' Well, here's the thing: JohnRomero, for all his faults, was an ideas man. When John Romero was with the rest of [[IdSoftware Id]], they were like [[Music/JohnLennon Lennon]] and [[Music/PaulMcCartney McCartney]]; they did their best work together 'cause he had the big ideas: in ''{{Videogame/Quake}} 1'', all that story business -- [[LovecraftLite all that Lovecratian shit]] that I was quite fond of -- that was all him. The moment he ''leaves'' Id, it just turns into a fucking tech demo. Most nondescript plot in the history of anything. Aliens are fighting you and everything's gone brown.\\
