let's hear it again. dimension

but unfortunately, you missed the topic there. the topic for discussion is, the hidden meanings behind the storylines in video games, not the importance of storylines themselves.
Thanks And yeah I realize it wasn't completely on-topic, sorry.

basically, i believe if a game's story does not have any hidden meanings in it, it is either
A) uninspired or
B) completely 100% un-thought-of originality..a rarity in todays story telling. not necessarily due to a lack of imagination or commitment or skill, but more of a 'it's been done' thing. you can only go so far, telling so many stories, before its already been told the exact same, in just 5 different ways.
Very good points.
