This is a silly post, especially considering it was Hideo Kojima who greenlit the series to begin with. Then on top of that it is widely confirmed by the games staff the director was solely responsible for the mess LoS2 was. 

That's irrelevant for the purpose of this post. Also, Kojima was an advisor in the first one but had nothing to do with LOS2. 

No its not, the minute you wrote FU Konami you made it relevant. Originally speaking LoS was not a Castlevania game but it was Kojima's idea to turn it into a Castlevania. He then greenlit the project. He didnt have anything to do with development but it was HIS idea. HE greenlit it. I already know Kojima had nothing to do with second. LoS2 was mess because of its ego centric Director. Nothing to do with Kojima or Konami. No need whatsoever for the FU Konami.

Furi, only boss battles was kind of okay. Long long long cutscenes of slow walking in between with uninteresting dialogue I just couldn't.



PS4 and PC gaming

Oops, wrong thread. Ignore this.



I don't usually care about the stories in video games because frankly, nearly all of them are lousy. However in the case of Valkyria Chronicles the insipid tripe I was greeted to upon starting the game was enough to put me off of it entirely. Someday I'll give it another shot because the gameplay honestly looks pretty good but it's hardly a priority.



Actually, I find THE LACK of any story can deter me.

If you are literally a guy with a gun, just going around shooting people, it usually immediately turns me off. I need to be more invested than that. Even a cool, interesting lead character is enough, as long as they aren't a complete douche.

No I don't care for storyline, I play for gameplay, design, art, a good story will enhance the game but I don't play a game that only futures a good story
If I am playing a game with a good story and there are things ir moments that I dislike I just pretend that it's not there and I continue



The story of Starcraft 2 Wings of Liberty was a factor in me not buying the other expansios.

*spoiler*

I mean what the fuck. From Raynor vowing to avenge Fenix in that awesome scene in the end of BW to "I have to cure my girlfriend, thousands of lives be damned" Nothing made sense, the characters and their motivations didn't make sense and the story sucked. Nothing felt as if large-scale things happened in the galaxy. Getting away with sieging the Zerg homeworld? It's so shit. Just a dogshit fucking shitstain of a story. A fanfiction would have been better.



I LOVE ICELAND!

I don't even know why you are bringing Kojima up.  If he "greenlit" the project is irrelevant because im not talking about the first game. I already said I liked the first game. That's not even in discussion. So im gonna leave that argument behind as its pointless to begin with.

Konami owns the game (LOS2). They hired the developers and director and they supervised the project. It's their property, hence their responsibility. Im not gonna wash them from responsibility because of the outsourcing. If it serves your need of semantic perfection then let me rephrase my last line to "FU Konami for hiring that director".

Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

How can you not cry? She's dead! The MC's little sister. Do you not like your little sister or something? :(

So, if that didn't make you cry, what has?

 

If the scene is so dumb, how can they expect me to cry. It's that simple, doesn't matter who the character is. xD

I cried with Cast Away.

That reminds me of Gears 2. I didn't stop playing, yet the scene where he 'rescues' his wife was so dumb it made me laugh and annoyed at the stupidity at the same time. At least he got over it quickly, back to happy murdering.
I did get some tears in the walking dead, train car scene.
