Some people say that games don’t have great narratives or story. Let's prove them wrong.
I guess a spoiler warning is in order.
This article is not worth the trouble. I got through it without spoiling anything. It just says obvious stuff you already know so what's the point?
All these games are from this gen. I was hoping for some older stuff. Like FFIV, when you find out Golbez is Cecil's brother.
Where MGS 1? When you activated Metal Gear, just when you thought you deactivated it... And Master Miller being Liquid Snake! Gosh!
this list is terrible. this isnt news either its an opinion piece. this so called news looks like it was written by a 5 year old. it dosent even explain the endings of them. its just a quick few words. report this as lame please.
Not like any of these twists are good, anyhow. It's quite obvious that the dude who made this doesn't play many games, or at the very least, started gaming this gen.
Number 3 is wrong.
A good start... And then... "Some people say that games don’t have great narratives. This list is an up yours for those people." And you have... BOTH MODERN WARFARE TITLES ON YOUR LIST?? nuff said. Though nothing wrong with BO, I must admit.
Personally I think Desmond should have also stabbed himself for being such a Nathan Drake wannabe.
HAHA i gotta say that was funny :P i own a 360 and i find it funny so lighten up fanboys lol
Yea your right its not exacly a plot twist ( number 3 )
What I meant is that it wasn't Minerva, but Juno.
Sure is missing a lot of other twists. Such as the identity of the precursors... and ever other MGS game... Hitman:BloodMoney's ending... the fate of Yuna/Tidus in FFX... MassEffect's twists... and SystemShock2... ... but they included stalker at least. Yay. It was interesting to realize that your assignment was a suicide mission. As in, that was the only way of accomplishing the mission. If only the game-over screen said "Task Completed." I don't know how the CoD's ended up there.
Apparently fighting on US soil and a nuke going off are examples of "great narrative"
Can we get a spoiler alert? I only just saved myself from ruining Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.
Theres a spoiler alert in the first paragraph.
I meant on here. The first small paragraph doesn't stop the first couple of spoilers appearing on my screen.
The first comment on this page says "spoiler alert". The title is a dead giveaway that there will be spoilers.
MW2 plot twist maybe but they way the describe it in the article is not a twist. The ending yes but not the "plot twist" they describe isn't one
Where is Shadow of the Colossus? That was an unexpected plot twist
If you couldn't see that one coming, you need to open your eyes.
My eyes are already open thanks.
I dont know why people care about story in games.Truth b told and i speak for my self (every one has different opinion) ive never cared about storys in game.All i care about is the gameplay,graphics and how much fun i have playing the game,i admit some times i get to a part and start to wonder why i just killed that boss but after a while i just say wow that boss fight was really cool and forget about the sory behind the fight :D If i want a story i just go and watch a movie.
Speak for yourself. I'm really into movies with great stories (besides the generic action movie where the good guys always win), and when a game comes along and gives me that same experience, EXCEPT I get to live and literally experience the story, it is better than a blockbuster movie.
My main reason when buying a game is the story. I can forget all the bad things about the game if the story is good enough. It may sound strange, but i almost cried in the end of MGS3. It is like i'm completely immersed into the character history when i'm playing a game. But some people don't really care about this.
I have to agree with you on this one. I mean I definitely welcome a great story, but there are VERY VERY VERY few games that have good stories. And no, something like Uncharted 2 is not a good story. There are only a handful of games this gen with good stories. The ones that I've played that do have them are MGS4, Bioshock, Fallout 3 (not the main storyline, but some of the side mission stories), Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect and maybe Bioshock 2 (probably not though, I'm undecided on that one). That's pretty much it (haven't played Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2, or enough of Heavy Rain though). A good story is definitely far down on my list of things to look for in a game, since the majority of them just suck, or are mediocre. Great art style is my most wanted feature in any game (I love games like fl0wer, Bioshock, Shadow of the Colossus, Borderlands, and a few others), then comes gameplay, then graphics. I'm all for having better stories in games, but if you're someone who honestly puts story quality at the highest priority, then you either don't play very many games, or you are easily impressed and haven't seen many great tv shows or movies.
i think you never played deadly premonition
No KotOR!? This list is shit.
Portal is so worn out. And it has Black Ops, Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 on the list. I mean.. COME ON!! WTF.. Terrible, horrible, ridiculous attempt of a list.
Does what a killer twist ought to do: makes you look at the whole game in a whole new angle.
lol wtf they have 3 cod games in there? their stories are fucking garbage, and the plot twists are very predictable. lmfao fail article
MW2: I had no idea what the hell was going on in that game, and would not call that a plot twist at all. inFamous: Would be nice if you explain how lightning makes you time travel. The foreshadowing was brilliant in retrospect though. Pretty poor choices all around on this list if you ask me. (nice to see Prototype get some recognition though)
these plot twists are horrible
Bioshock was probably the only hugely notable one on here for me. Where the heck is Kotor???
Omg, where is Heavy Rain?...
Hmm, the only Japanese game is MGS3? Well I think we can all tell what kind of gamer made this list... (not only that, but almost all of them involve shooting as its main mechanic) Anyways, they also seem to be at least from the last 5 or 6 years or so, should have made the list name different.
*spoiler* GARCIAN... _IS_ ... KILLER7. then he cries. poor garcian
