Best story driven games ? - Page 15

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Lady Yunaleska was over 1000 years old and had no signs of aging,
Auron aged drastically after 10 years of being a ghost and was dead the whole time? Seriously?
Titus ended up being a dream and swimming off into the sky like some kind of gay fish - Seriously?

He didn't get the girl in the end, the whole story was about him whining about his daddy being an ass, and the whole while the only person with a higher purpose was the bad guy - Maester Seymore, who wanted to put an end to death forever! Because if everyone was turned into a spirit who refused to go to the "Farplanes" they could live on the planet like Auron and live in peace, otherwise they were somehow transformed into weird the beasts that preyed on the living kindof like Humans and Vampires.

The only interesting element in the story that could have been developed would have been about Rikku and the Albed, because they represented "Evil" and "Technology" which caused SIN's creation in the first place - but she somehow was only present during the first 20 minuets of the game and then shoehorned back into the story just before the end because the writers realized they forgot about her.

The only reason anyone would play FFX is for the TNA, which is even more obvious by the successor FFX-2 where all the characters have even less cloths on accompanied by guns.

Waka was a complete retard also and refused to use technology to destroy SIN to save the world once and for all. Instead he'd rather help his childhood friend assist suicide in order to bring peace to the world of Spira for only 1-10 years.

Completing the puzzles in the"Coister of Trials" on each island made me cringe every time.

I do gotta say in Squaresoft's defense that their company was going through the merging into Square-Enix and that immediately following the merging they produced one of the worst creations in cinematic history - Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which lost $51,649,170.

RIP SquareSoft - we loved you :*(

Parasite Eve 2 was one of Squaresofts's finest i have ever seen, a great title for the old PSX... so much nostalgia drool.gif

I liked Far Cry 3 a lot, lots of twists in the story and great voice acting/narration.

For me:

Deus Ex
Grim Fandango
Curse of Monkey Island
Half Life 2 ...and the 2 episodes
Age of Empires 2...I really enjoyed the campaign
Battlefield 3 ....haha just joking.

Story driven game - Well, for my money, there's a tie with Baldurs Gate 2 - The Shadows of Amn - some of the best NP character development I've seen, Dragon Age - Origins, Wing Commander 3 and 4 and Freelancer (the only good thing about freelancer was the story, damn hard to do with the vanilla game, but oh so east to mod smile.gif )

Well starcraft is a good game, but the problem is, its made by Blizzard. Blizzards artwork always tends to be sort of cartoonish and childish.
Same with the stories. Same with all the Warcraft games... Same with World of Warcraft too... Very good games, but cartoony graphics and childish storylines.

Blizzard is a company that focuses far too much on making EVERYONE happy. So everything they do is compromised by that mode of thinking. Which is "Make this game so that EVERYONE will like it"
In doing so, there games always feel like they are DIET versions of what they could have been.

Its too bad, because there is a LOT of talent at Blizzard Entertainment.

PS : Its funny, Blizzard sort of reminds me of PIXAR. Super talented people making stuff for GENERAL audiences.
And therefore making DIET products.

Its a shame really.
Happy time PC.

The best linear game is hands down Alice: Madness Returns.
