"With the benefit of hindsight, I think I've figured out what made Crysis 3's story feel a bit detached and iffy. What it is, is that Crysis 2 ended with New York being all fucked up from the big intergalactic war that just happened in it, but with everyone somewhat hopeful for rebuilding the future. And then there's a big gap, and then Crysis 3 opens with New York being fucked up. Only now its 24 years later and it's fucked up in a different way. There was a point after Crysis 2 when it was un-fucked to a certain degree, but then it got fucked up again before we got back into the action. So from our point of view we've just gone straight from fucked up to fucked up. Which is a bit discouraging, I suppose."
