the obnoxious robot sidekick is the worst thing ever put in a video game
I'm only 20 minutes in and I can't keep going because every word out of his mouth makes me want to tear my hair out.

think of it as friendly banter :)

I don't think you would enjoy playing Portal 2

I was worried about that, but I actually found him pretty funny. The dialogue actually reminded me somewhat about Iain M Banks... And come on... "I'm a floating BOMB?!?!?!?!?!..... I'm a floating bomb. SWEET." Fantastic moment for me, I ♥♥♥♥ed myself laughing.

Boss -- Wait till you get to the escort mission with him!

In all seriousness, sorry he's annoying you so much. He does fade back a bit in the later parts of the game, but probably not enough to help you.

How can you not like Crispin ?

He's pretty divisive. I'd say about 20% of reviewers didn't like him, and rated the game down. "Worst thing ever put in a video game" seems a bit much, though. What about the falcons in Ninja Gaiden?!

What about Cedric in KQ?

You have no sense of humor at all. It's pretty well written banter and it reminded me of Morte a bit from Planescape: Torment. I seriously don't understand people like you. Maybe you think he should have had an English accent? Or just simply been quiet the whole time? No dialogue at all perhaps?

@ Amerika -- By recognizing him as based on Morte, not Joey from BASS, you have made me a happy, happy man. :)

Haha, the pleasure is all mine. When I started the game I figured it would be extremely serious. Especially since I read The Fallen before I started playing the game. But much like Morte in Planescape, Crispin has livened things up quite a bit and I have sincerely enjoyed it!

The whole story so far has been enjoyable and the game itself too. I have very limited experience with adventure games and this has been a good introduction.

The banter is childish at best. I'm not a child, so it didn't appeal to me. The other issue is that it's such a stark contrast to the tone of the game that it would be better if it didn't exist at all. It might have worked if the writer understood comedy, but he cleary does not. He should have left it out and stuck to what he's good at.

Im 27 and i love it. Even my father still likes to play Adventure games and he likes it too. i can't see your point. Every good adventure has humor like that, even indiana jones made jokes like "im selling these fine leather jackets" while fighting nazis. I could only guess that you are in the age where you try too hard to be an adult, maybe around 16-18. Everyone was in that phase sometimes. If you are not, no offense meant.

Plenty of people found Crispin insufferable. I don't think it's because something's wrong with the original poster in the thread. Humor is very subjective, and even aside from that, Crispin has some objectively bad lines. Of course I don't agree with the OP, but it's not a crazy view.

Hm... For me, the game would've lost half of its charm without Crispin - he really makes that party alive :) And his sole presence adds to the BaSS-like atmosphere, too, which gives me an additional nostalgic kick. But tastes differ.
