This is adding on to a comment of a guy who thought I just wanted Samara to be fuckable and was one of those people who wanted every character to be so.
Maybe if I just repeat this enough times it’ll get through -
“People seem to have trouble actually listening to what I’ve said, on multiple occasions. I don’t want Samara to be fuckable. I don’t want a full blown romance. I don’t want them to even kiss. But it’s made clear there is mutual feeling and in this instance, it wasn’t addressed in a way I felt was fitting with Samara. It should have been more direct than a line so subtle that most of the people who got it missed it entirely. THAT is why I say it’s lazy, because they didn’t write her correctly.”
That one particular scene, in the original game, NOT counting the Citadel DLC content. That was not done correctly. I didn’t expect a big flashy romance cutscene, I didn’t expect them to get all fluffy and amorous with each other. I just wanted it to be addressed. I wanted it to matter that my Shepard, having being alone for 9-12 years after the nightmare that was Akuze, fell in love with and tried to pursue Samara.
And that even after that attempt failed, she didn’t just give up and go after someone else. It wasn’t a throwaway decision to try and mend her own wounds, she genuinely loved Samara.
So to not have it properly addressed it that moment, to have it be condensed into a line so vague and subtle when Samara is a direct person in such matters - it was out of character. It was lazily written.
JFC I wish I could just link youtube people to a post.
Not that I think it would help because you need a drill to get through skulls that thick.
