It takes a very specific set of writing and storytelling skills to do what Jane did with KQVI.
This is not to say that the other writers for Sierra were not equally good, only that they did not have that particular set of skills and approaches that Jane brought to it. What the others could do was often equally impressive, but in a totally different way.
Blah blah blah, UNIQUE ACHIEVEMENT...
Blah blah blah, NOBODY BUT JANE...
Blah blah blah, not without a DRAMATIC DROP IN QUALITY!
Blah blah blah, VERY specific set of writing skills...
Please. She's not God. You are only proving my point about Jensen fanboyism.
