5 great PS3 games marred by crap stories

PSU.com's Mike Harradence writes:

"We happen to love a good story, and as such we’ve decided to list five PlayStation 3 games that are fundamentally solid titles (at least in our humble opinion), yet concurrently possess some of the lamest narratives we’ve had the misfortune of digesting. Whether they’re recycled, unoriginal or just plain daft, you’ll likely find them here." (Borderlands, Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Resident Evil 5, Resistance 2, Tekken 6)

FFXIII's constant tutorials and linear gameplay ruined that game.

In the end, VG stories matter very little to me. Just Cause 2 has the worst story ever, but it's probably my most favorite game this gen.

I actually loved Just Cause 2's story. It gave a great reason to just blow things up. In addition to that, i truly can't agree any more about 13.

I would add Haze to that list. One of my greatest PS3 disappointments from a very short list.
A crap game marred by an equally crap story marred by the most cringe-worthy dialogue ever imo.

There are many people around here would rather you didn't talk about Haze. At least you didn't bring up Lair too.

The author could replace it with Tekken 6 since every fighting game has a crap story.

When it comes to video games the story is the least important aspect. Gameplay>Sound>Visuals&g t;Story. As long as the first 3 aspects are great even a weak story doesn't bring down much what is overall an amazing game. If a game does every aspect well then it's a masterpiece, a.k.a God of War series, Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect series, Bioshock series etc.

Films would be Story>Sound=Visuals and books are obviously 100% story.

A game without a good story is just a game

A game with a great story is an experience

MGS series for the most confusing story ever, along with hours of cutscenes that dont seem particularly story related at all.

Hey those diarrhetic guards were essential to the story, don't even try to make it sound like it was a juvenile attempt at humour!

If the cutscenes don't seem like part of the story, then you're not paying attention to the story.

Killzone 3, first no Helghan campaign, but the worse part in this game is the story: the good guys destroyed the entire planet and killed millions of innocent people¡¡¡¡ Master Chief, Nate, Jensen or Snake never have killed innocent people or species¡¡¡....s ince that I love the Helghast and hate the ISA. If Killzone Shadow Fall doesnt have Helghan campaing I will not buy it. At least in Mercenary you can choose the side with which you will work. I like to kill ISA in multiplayer.
