Then, Gothic III was released, with a completely new engine and better graphics (one of the bast in 2006, actually). It sucked, but sealed the story nicely, not to forget the enormous and beautiful world they’ve created (this is why I’m Myrtanian, in homage to the game). Then PB ended working with the title, so JoWooD started to seek for another developer. They found one and released Forsaken Gods, aka Forsaken Bugs. The game was shit and forced continuation of an ended story. Then they found another developer, and released Gothic IV + expansion, which killed the series for me. It had everything what’s evil, including massive lore-rapes. As they say, in G3, FG and G4 the game was simplified “to reach broader audience in the US”.
And this is what commerce can do with a beautiful game…
Back to the lore, I actually like most aspects of Warcraft lore. Titans, the Burning Legion, the Scourge, the Dragonflights, Tirion Fordring, Medivh, Alliance, Horde, War of the Ancients, Order of Tirisfal… I’m considering reading Rise of the Lich King and Of Blood and Honor, but we’ll see… First I have to figure out how to get ’em.
