Heavy Rain? Great story? Really?

Yikes. Gamers have some seriously low standards when it comes to writing. Shame no one remembers the handful of games that actually were well-written... Legacy of Kain, Freespace 2... hell, even this gen, there are plenty of games that outclass Heavy Rain--Yakuza 3, Nier, Valkyria.

Well, here's hoping Alan Wake is better. Shame the PC version was canceled, again, though. Haven't really played a horror game I liked since Crimson Butterfly.

The top selling games this gen are NSMB, wii fit, and wii sports/wii sports resort. So it doesn't seem that way.

If video games had good stories maybe they'd be right. ME/ME2 are incredible and games like Fallout 2 still impress. But they happen once or twice a generation.

If you demand good stories from games you'll end up never playing them. That's why I play stuff like Mario. I wince every time a cut-scene starts in Bayonetta while furiously smashing start to skip it.
