        Should have had cheese boats to neutralize the spicy. Cheese boats are dope.

              The jerking an auditorium of guys off bit is such a classic piece of comedy. As usual, Evans coming through with the questions he knows we all want answers for.

                  I liked him but it was annoying how obsessed he was with how he looks, by constantly checking his phone camera. It was awkward...

                                                I don't think he said it had good writing, pretty sure what he said was that it was good at immersing you into the world and that it felt lived in, which I would agree with. The writing of the actual main quest isn't great but the world itself is great.
