a (sadly) cheap derailment of Millium's character arc

To be fair, you keep arguing that you’re right when you’re actually wrong. Can’t deny those facts with the other people proving why in the other comments.

My post is less of an attempt at proving something, and more of a comment on how I wish the execution of the character arc was done differently.

You’re definitely not one of the braindead people, but you do have some weird tunnel vision when getting the idea there’s a derailment of Millium’s character arc. There isn’t really a derailment and the you should really accept the other comments pointing this out instead of being stubborn about it. You are an open-minded about things when in discussions, right?

It's hard to keep bringing up character derailment without a clear definition, so I guess here's tvtrope's take on it.


When an established character becomes largely different, exhibiting behavior contrary to what has been previously shown. This is not a matter of organic growth. Rather than gradually changing in response to events and experiences, a derailed character will exhibit shockingly unusual behavior that implies malfeasance or incompetence on the part of the writers.

My perspective on the plot was Millium was "exhibit shockingly unusual behavior that implies malfeasance or incompetence on the part of the writers", pretty much point on point.

Was that a better response towards you instead of that other thing you interpreted wrong from my other comment?

Yes, it was. It would also be a better constructive discussion if you would stop casting aspersions on other people/make subtle personal attacks when you write responses to posts that are just casual criticism of the writing of the games.

If I were to reverse the tables, you seem to enjoy having the opinion that you know the correct opinion without having to explain anything, and impose that you definitely know better and thus are allowed to make dismissive comments about opinions that you don't reference.

I just believe the healthiest discussions about constructive criticism are done without having to make personal attacks; you can assert your opinion and guide someone toward a higher understanding without asserting that you're better than them.
