Too much game lore ?

I came across this video thanks to BrokenToys. It has close to four million views on Youtube already.

It strongly resonates with my personal experience of World of Warcraft – there is simply WAY too much lore. I understand there are close to 80 quest writers in Blizzards who are producing an avalanche words on top of the words already produced by novel writers, copywriters, and lead designers.

It takes a great writer many revisions to write succinctly:

‘Madame, enclosed please find the novel you commissioned. It is in two volumes. If I had more time I could have written it in one‘. Voltaire
