Oh this is beautiful. I'm gonna have fun breaking this one down...
Disagreed. If there is no story, even a little tiny bit of story or any info the game is meaningless. All you will do is play as a mindless drone which completes task,I find utterly pathetic and disgusting, it makes me sick how pathetic some people are.
Puzzle games have no story whatsoever, unless I missed the part were Tetris is some deep seeded intergalatic war between Tetriminoes. Or the heavy drama about how Mario, once plumber now turned doctor, must save a sick dying child from ever present virus hell bent on the death of innocence. For the record, I never said the X series needed no story whatsoever. I simply said that it did not need a "better and heavy plot" which was the topic of this whole post to begin with. But let's move on, shall we...
That is why i despise MMOs. Rockman X would not be as good if it had not story what so ever.
You know, I really don't like MMO's either. To indulge this further though, I did play Star Wars: The Old Republic and will get back to playing one day. Not only does it have a story, it have multiple stories for whatever class you pick. Something like 12 separate stories all in one game depending what class you want to be. Soooo yeah, that point is moot.
I highly doubt that you even know Shakespeare`s works or understand them at all. Even if a games gameplay is bad the story can save gameplay if it amazingly done
Well besides the courses I took in High School & College, by choice mind you because I love Shakespeare's work (The Tempest being my favorite). But yeah, what do I know. As for a story saving game play if it is amazingly done... what if the game play is so bad that you cannot actually finish the story?
Story is not a side note and should not be missed. Story and gameplay are both elements that need to be included no matter what, both have to be good to make a fully fledged game.
And again, I never said that story is not needed. It is just a side note. Does the original Legend of Zelda game have that "deep" or "heavy" of a plot, or is it just about Link collecting the Triforce pieces, defeating Ganon, and saving Princess Zelda? Is Super Mario Bros. this long struggle about a plumbers hatred of turtles? Or is it about Mario rescuing Princess Toadstool? Those games have the most bare-bones plot possible, and they are fully fledged games.
I know this as novelist and Game developer. I find it pathetic how localization dumbs down games. That is probably why you are nothing but a mindless drone who is illiterate and cannot understand or bother reading the story.
Oh boy, a novelist AND Game Developer. Should I bow or simple kneel before your oh so omnipotent knowledge of literature and gaming? But for the sake of argument, please enlighten me as to what games you have developed and what novels you have written? Please. I'd love to give them a whirl.
I really dont care what you think of story since you barely know anything about it. In the end people like you are sheep that cannot make their own decisions and are too lazy too understand or try to understand a sophisticated peace of literature.
Then why'd you ask the question in the first place? If you don't care about the answer to the question "Would Rockman X Benefit from having a better and heavy plot?" then why ask the question to begin with? To pump yourself up knowing that there are people like you out there who think EXACTLY like you do or that there are people like me out there who do not think X games are "sophisticated
pieces of literature" that you can mock and call sheep.
For retrospect, do you know what my favorite RPG of all time is? It's a C64 game called AD&D Pool Of Radiance. In this game, you create six characters, name them, give them their class, stats, etc., then you go off on the adventure presented to you in the game. Wanna know why I love it so much? Because I can create my own backstory for my characters. That why D&D and role playing is awesome in the first place, because you're creating the story yourself. They are your characters, your creations. That is true imagination right there.
