I liked Dyad a lot, but Mass Effect's story was so gripping and involving. Hard to argue that story in games is futile when 20x more people played a story focused game over Dyad.

It's the story that I always play first in games. Would AC3 be fun without one? How about the Uncharted series?

Lot`s of games w/ no story are fun though.

-Tetris, Pacman, Flower and Flow are great examples.

Ohh surprise. A guy says stories in games are pointless after making a pointless game with no story.

I don't believe Shawn McGrath means any harm, I simply believe he is a stupid person.

Stupid people never MEAN any harm, but they sure as hell can CAUSE a lot if it.

Shawn is actually incredibly bright, but I just think this is a case of him just being a bit short sighted and letting his opinion get away from him.
