Lore is overhyped. If I wanted to read I’d read a book. I haven’t read a book in like 20 years.

You seem to wear it like a badge of honor. It's embarassing.

Is it? How so?

I would rather watch a movie or a show or play a game than sit and read.

“Lore” is terrible. “Lore” is a deliberately obscure mediocre backstory novel, usually in tiny text whose font size cannot be increased. If I wanted to read a deliberately obscure novel I’d read Joyce on my Kindle.

If you want to tell a story, use the actual mechanics of a video game to do it.

Or you found the person who plays games for the game play not the story.

I love it when games have a story integrated into the game, like Celeste or Stray.

I do not like it when they have a huge backstory text dump, like the Skyrim books or the Elden Ring item descriptions.
