Forerunner fails: why are gaming's ancient races such idiots?

Edwin Evans-Thirlwell: For years, I've attributed this common theme to the need to invest the universe with temporal depth, buttressing its bright, breezy surface with age-old secrets, forbidden knowledge you'll gradually uncover as proceedings, um, proceed.

The story is too old to be commented.

Because humanity inspired it and Jesus got all the fame because of that.

because no race no matter how advanced can last forever, and it makes a neat story for games if like you find out some ancient aliens (cue that one scientist with crazy hair) are responsible for the creation of mankind or life as you see it in the video game

By defintion, they had to become 'ancient' somehow.

Perhaps stupidity had a leading role in that.

If VG's 'ancient races' have taught us anything, they always leave behind obedient-protectors, and they usually despise humans existance. lol
