Have you ever stopped playing a game for a reason related to the storyline?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Have you ever stopped playing a game for a reason related to the storyline?

This thread is a great read, seeing how games can affect people so much.

For me it was Spec Ops: The Line. I didn't actually stop playing but didn't want to complete the story (had to really). I mean, I had heard it was a great story with mediocre gameplay but that hadn't actually prepared me to how much in the end I hated the guy I was playing.

I have never stopped playing a game because of a bad story, I've stopped because of interest going elsewhere or because of other bad aspects of games but never a story.



Hmm, pie.

Story is one of the most inportant things to me, but if the game is fun I still play it. While I have continued to play a bad game because of a good story, I have never stopped playing a fun game because of a bad story. If bad storytelling is involved with me quitting, odds are the game has other issues with it that also made me not want to play.

No matter what happens next, don't be too hard on yourself. Even now, after all you've done, you can still go home. Lucky you.



This happends to me often with books,..... thats when I go "oh this author just ruined the story" and close the book.
(from that point on I dont read more in that book series).

I remember this happending with Anne Rice - The vampire Chronicles.
(the book series interview with a vampire is from)

^ around book 5, theres a plot twist in the story that just ruins it all for me.
So I havnt read past book 5, even though theres like 11 books in it so far (I think?).

And I really liked the first 4 in the series too.

Quiet Konrad, I'm thinking.

You are still a good person.

Yes, game, yes I am.

The sealed blob monster in Skyward Sword. It was first because the motion controls were screwing up, with me. But I just got so fed up. I was like "Why the fuck is this mini boss in the game 3 times?" I was getting bored of the story during the middle. This monster triggered me to quit on the game. I still haven't beaten it. Going back and forth. The sky area was pointless. A lot of the characters were boring/annoying. I just had enough. I even remember thinking: "I'd rather be Zelda right now. She's going threw dimensions. While Link is dealing with this black monster. And Groose is wasting my time."



I was a diehard fan of final fantasy, played every previous game multiple times until final fantasy 12 -- I tried so hard to like it and be interested in the story, but ended up quitting about 30 hours in because I found the story too unbelievably boring.



Once I started playing as Raiden I dropped MGS2.



Yes, my most recent game is Bravely Default with the awful story, making you do the same things again D:
