The worst videogame villain in history gets defeated in a raid ... and everyone with two brain cells to rub together hates it and thinks it's a stupid waste of everyone's time and attention span.
It's hard to find a bigger Bonfire of the Vanities in all of gaming right now.
I mean, Blizzard is claiming that they just spent the last 20 years building up to ... switching off a robot.
One of the youtube comments I saw was that Blizzard have been self-plagarizing their own plot on repeat for the last 4 expansions.

World of Fruitbowls may not be all the way dead yet ... but it is definitely beyond saving now.
It's not even Forsaken ... it's just an undead Scourge shambling forward in undeath, devouring the gold of the living like a parasite.
The collapse of faith in Blizzard's ability to tell a story in their games is very nearly complete.
Verbogeny is one of many pleasurettes afforded a creatific thinkerizer.
