Congratulations to oasdada, our tenth day winner!
On the eleventh day, the question we have for you is "Who do you think designs the best characters and worlds for video games?"
This one is extremely easy for me, Chris Avellone.
Let's just list those credentials: Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment (my favorite game of all time), Icewind Dale, SWKotOR 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, Divinity: Original Sin II.
The guy has his hands deep into some of the all time best RPGs out there and it's uncommon that the issues with a game are from his designs and world building, but typically from other elements of the game. Chris Avellone has been a household name for me since Planescape and has rarely disappointed me. Even Alpha Protocol was an enjoyable game for me, and I didn't even know he had a hand in the game until years after its release.
