Video games are all about the stories they tell, but what happens when they just become... forgettable? Are the good ole' days gone forever? We seriously hope not.

Video games are not "all about the story they tell" they're about making a solid/enjoyable experience, and if anything stories in games have gotten better. That being said, it's OK if a game just wants to focus on being fun, i mean look a just cause 3, all i know is there was a bad guy whole was mining some stuff to destroy the thing, yet i still plunged like 100hrs into that game DLC included and have many memories of crazy things that happened like accidentally taking over an entire outpost by collapsing a single giant antenna onto it causing crazy havoc and chain reactions that just killed/destroyed everything in there, it was AWESOME!

Meanwhile i'll never forget the time i discovered you could talk to Rost which i did right before a late story big moment, catching him up on all the crazy shit that went down, taking a trip down memory lane ending it by saying something like "and now i'm on my way to do this crazy thing to save the world, i'll be back to tell you how it goes" it was a really touching moment

Right? It’s like the article was written in a alternate universe. We just had God of War released. Is this guy that out of touch or is he just playing dumb?

Neither! As I explained in the article, I've just been in a bit of a backlog funk. Getting through as many as I can has led to a bit of a "everything's a blur" forgettable phase. Was hoping the article would serve as a starting point to others sharing similar stories if they wanted.

Thanks for reading it! :)

I'd say narrative in games has improved over the past 30 years.

You want a recent title with unforgettable story? Play Nier: Automata or Xenoblade 2. Both of those games are amazing and would recommend to anyone remotely interested. You cannot tell me that Nier Automata's story is forgettable if you played through ending [E].

NieR:Automata as a whole has a far more memorable story than the joke titled Final Fantasy XV

I don’t know man...I kindda love FFXV. Beside the freaking boring and repetitive and ridiculous sidequests, I find the game to be very relaxing and the story to be tolerable and somewhat very interesting in some chapters.

Another insecure FFXV drive by

NieR: Automata is ready and waiting for me! It's my next big title that I'm super looking forward to tackling.

Easily the best and most memorable story of the last two gens
