Ken Levine Clears up the F****d up Story Thing

2K Boston's Ken "She Looked 18 to Me" Levine sent in a clarification about his earlier comments regarding the plot has to be really f***ing stupid for people to keep up with it post.

"I talked about how the very basic plot of your game has to be very, very simple so people who are not inclined to care about your story can follow it. In BioShock it's

Act 1: Get to the sub

Act 2: Kill X

Act 3: Kill Y [edited out the names in case you haven't played it yet]

hmmm well I understand where he's going but I think the majority of people would like to go deeper into a story so why have them choose something they already wanted with the purchase?

I recall Me and my friends talking about how Halo 3 story sucked, while we were playing Gears, and this guy started talking smack because they didn't care about the story they just wanted to kill things, and the said the same thing about Gears, COD4, and Halo 3. And everyone agreed with him. This show that the mindless shooter market is out there, and those are the people who bought Turok

What does that mean? Was Ken convicted of statutory rape or something, anyone know what this means (I know it's probably a joke so about what?)

LMFAO. GREAT TITLE! Gotta love them teens.

"clarification about his earlier comments regarding the plot has to be really f***ing stupid for people to keep up with it"

---He was basically saying most gamers are casual morons, so he had to dumb Bioshock's story down so we would have a chance of understanding it. Nice guy.
