Doesn't change the fact Emil is still responsible for the state of Bethesda writing. Bad faith takes happen because there's something fundamentally borked

Apologist videos like this miss the most basic points. Emil is a design & writing director, meaning he makes the decisions on what content gets included in the game within his sphere, and his sphere is writing/story/quest design. We don't need to watch a 2+ hour youtube video to be told that he's just one person and Bethesda is a 250+ person studio when we already know that he's the one making the questionable decisions that result in disjointed, inconsistent, ridiculous stories.

Context and nuance are not popular in today's microwave society. We want quick hot takes that tell us everything we need to know and form our opinions with, which in turn become hot takes. If you don't have the time or just don't want to watch a 2 hour video that's fine. But the posts represented here so far completely fall short of giving a fair synopsis of what the video is. Watch it if you have time. It's pretty damn good.

That is such bullshit, he is clearly capable of good Ideas but that doesn't mean he's a good writer.
Most of us have been complaining about bethesda needing a good writer since, freaking Oblivion.
Every freaking game it's full of good ideas that are poorly executed and 80%+ chance they bugged or broken.

Take Skyrim, a Civil War which was instigated by a 3rd party (great idea so far, right).
Firstly, they refuse to let us hold the 3rd party accountable.
Secondly, you can only choose 1 of the 2 sides, you can't choose peace or take control rule in peace.
I realize there's a mod that fixed much of the Civil War but don't think we were ever able to hold the 3rd party accountable.
Except a ridiculous attack at the end or post quest ( because the responsible party was freaking invulnerable).

It takes nothing short of sheer tupidity to leave a Civil War in that condition.
It's seems part of the problem is they can't accept their mistakes, so they never get fixed.
I'd love to see Dodd the DingleBerry and Eformaggio Fartenburger be forced to take Dunning Kruger.

I'd never even heard this man's name before last week.
Do you have a single fact to back that up?
