They also suffer immensely from his inexperience as a writer at the time. We only give them a free pass because 1) video game storytelling in general has low standards and 2) they're apparently the most detailed stories in the RTS genre, even 20 years later.

I wouldn't really have a problem if the fandom didn't constantly place the storytelling of SC1 and WC3 on an undeserved pedestal.
