The 5 the Most Convoluted Game Franchises

GameXplain: "When it comes to video games, most players are only interested in the gameplay. Is it fun? Does it engage me? And that is by far the most important element to be found. But gameplay isn't the only thing that can pull a player into the game's world. Storytelling is still considered to be weak in the industry, but that hasn't stopped developers from trying to create epic storylines across multiple games. Each one builds upon the previous games until you have a meticulously crafted world or a convoluted mess. In some cases it can actually be both. You may absolutely love the franchise, but there's no denying that it makes no sense without really digging into the mythos. So with that in mind, let's take a look at five of the most convoluted game franchises we've come across."

Kingdom Hearts seems so fitting after that epic timeline series

I have to disagree on MGS cutscenes taking AWAY from the experience i'm afraid.

MGS doesn't give a crap about current trends etc, it tells the story and ideas it wants to tell, and those cutscenes over the years made its characters substantially deeper and more memorable than almost every other franchise.

If MGS had non-story's and mini COD-esque cutscenes, i might not have let tears slip out when Snake was on his knees about to pull that trigger in 2008...

yea to FANS of the series the cut scenes for most people were welcome. People just hate to hate to get hits.

COD mentality i swear COD kids are killing my favorite hobby

Very mature response

I love how sensitive is

He said the exact opposite of that actually. HE said that they add to the story experience and get you closer to the characters. Learn to comprehend what you read. You just saw COD and MGS in the same comment and started attacking him.

BlackTar1871846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

umm comprehension? if you were talking to me i wasn't attacking Faceless :x I was agreeing with him.

Ahhhh I see now. When you said "Author" I thought you meant the guy you were replying to, not the one that wrote the article. Sorry bout that.

Yeah the fight with Boss at the end of MGS3 felt so personal and deep when I got to it even though she wasn't in the game much, when she was her character development was so good that I wanted to sympathize with her.

MGS? No, wrong. Pay attention to the games. I'll be sure never to read this site's opinions again.

You all understand that there is a difference between thinking something is convoluted and not understanding something, right?

I fully understood the plots of MGS 2-4, but at the same time I thought they were needlessly in they were layered with plots and subplots in an attempt to feign depth.

-Notice MGS getting attention
-Write article bashing it

troll pseudo gaming journalists are the worst.
