paper mario 2, zelda games up to wind waker.
i don't understand.
you guys think video games are an inherently bad
medium for writing?
like say if dosteivsky was born today and decided
to make a videogame instead of writing a book,
the writing would automatically be shit because "hurr durr it's a video game"?
or do you think it's just that no good writers have worked in this feild yet and that it is possible to have a good story in a video game?
i haven't seen any outstanding writing in video games, but i do think it's possible.
gta v had glimpses of at least good writing. the overall story was forgettable but there were moments that were good (the cellphone bomb for instance). this kind of plot twist/shock value reminded me of something you would see in a buzz show like breaking bad or game of thrones (not that i think either of those shows are "outstanding"). what i want to know is do you think it's possible, or is it just that great writing in videogames has simply not been achieved thus far?

>>
>>254257943
You're an oversimplifying faggot and throw around words without any thought behind them.

Story can be integrated well into the gameplay or cinematics and there is much, much more behind a good book than just a good story.

But you are too simple to notice any of this. And that's okay, to each his own. Just stop shitting your opinions in threads about games you don't like because muh too much story.
>>
>>254258351
That's because you're supposed to avoid enemies not engaging with them
>>
>>254255461
go and say that on /tv/ and see what happens
>>
>>254259440
and I do for the most part, but sometimes you get caught by surprise by a guy(MGS3 forward) or fail to avoid them in 1-2, that's when fighting comes in, if they give you weapons, then I at least expect the mechanics to be good, 3rd person in 1-2 wasn't necessary as it was top down, but in 3 it was neccesary, as it was a 3rd person game, and if the enemy is too close you can even miss the melee even when facing them, meanwhile, you can fall to the ground with a single gun headbutt from an enemy, you try that and he'll only be pushed back

>>254258497
I'm not him but I'm curious to see what you consider good integration of story and play. Examples?
>>
>>254252445
Story should complement an idea that is already satisfactory in essence, it should never be purposed to overshine any of the other aspects. Meaning, you apply an enjoyable story to a good gameplay experience, or for film a good emotional conveyance of audio and video.

That's the problem with storyfags is that they focus too much on the story that the other aspects suffer.

>right click to win
>"good"

also every other sign is pretty much useless, every other weapon besides your silver and steel swords are useless, there's hardly any progression as far as those two go (all of the silver swords are late-game and steel swords are somewhat common but you fight monsters 99% of the time anyway, oh and only 3 armor sets in the whole game), combat is nothing more than monotonous timed clicking and the occasional potion with little to no variety, it's jerky, awkward, and doesn't always work right (slice at an enemy while he's 15 feet away, he crumples over and dies, and vice versa), the status effects are poorly balanced garbage and a huge annoyance since half of them stun you for ~10 seconds (like fucking javed, who blinds you over and over and over, and is also one of the only enemies in the game that actually uses blind, so you never have a reason to stack blind resistance up until that point) or drain your health insanely fast, it's just bad

Not the same anon, but I agree with you.

I really hate the fact that there's only a few devs out there that are willing to utilize the medium as a means of telling a story. Gameplay and storytelling can be seamlessly integrated with each other if they really want to do so/if they're capable of doing so.

I've done this before with tons of Dreamcast games.

I think I still remember playing Zombie Revenge on all the plot paths to see how it synced up with House of the Dead 2.

I loved it and there's nothing you can do to stop me. Furthermore, there are plenty of people who agree with me.

MGS is insanely overrated. I don't understand why anyone likes it... Other than the fact that they're PS1babbies and MGS had them hooked with muh grafix.
