His video, while on form with his usual stuff raised a question for me.
What is considered a good video game story? Instead of moaning that video game stories are crap compared to some films, what are good stand out stories in games that show what a game can produce, so that story in games can be compared to other games. For every great movie story, there are 50 books that are better. For every pun filled super-hero film, there are 15 graphic novels that outshine them. You can't compare different mediums stories against each other as how they are told and portrayed are so different.
Video game medium is still hung up on the idea it's entertainment media has to be compared to that of films because films are still more popular as an entertainment media even if games make more money.
It depends on the series and genre.
To quote Jim 'there is no perfect pasta sauce, only perfect pasta sauces'.
Any series can have good and bad stories. It depends on what they come up with, and some series are not consistent with it (I'm a Pokemon fan who likes the stories of Gen 5 and Sun and Moon, but thinks Gen 6 and 8 have bad stories). Of course there is a reason Nintendo doesn't normally advertise itself on story...
The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
