I love KQ6. I thought it was a deeply emotional and powerful story (in a very successful way, as opposed to my thoughts on TSL). I don't think it's dark or too serious at all. I think some people (including my friends at IA) go a little too far in that opinion. I don't even dislike Jane Jensen or Gabriel Knight. I thought Gabriel Knight was a really powerful story. Maybe some just don't like that type of story period and prefer lighthearted stories for everything. I didn't realise this at first, however. I thought you guys simply didn't like TSL in that it didn't do it well, and I agree. But I can't agree that Jane isn't a great writer and made a great story and game with KQ6 and GK.
That said, that doesn't make KQ6 my favourite. KQ5 will always be my favourite. Personally, I don't hold the whole simple-story/light-hearted/"anti-contrived"/"non-convoluted" standpoint of what KQ should be at all. I don't mind backstories, tying things together, and having a bit of drama in it (a la KQ6). Honestly, this kind of stuff just makes things more interesting to me. That doesn't mean I have to consider stuff like the Father or TSL storylines canon but it is fun to experience and see unfold. I enjoy it for what it is. I don't really understand why you guys are so against that, honestly. Maybe it's just your style I guess. Like how some people love horror flicks and I just cannot sit through one. Not my scene. All this doesn't mean they are automatically cliche, bad, and contrived though.
