Judging by the gameplay Jaffe offers, it might be advisable for him to add some story to his games.

A game without a story can be done. Most of the oldest classics (Tetris, Pac Man, etc) have little or no story, and they're still fun, still enjoyable.

A game without gameplay... isn't a game.

This is a good read. I am big Jaffe Fan. However, I play games for story and I agree with the writer's comments in that only some games aren't fitted to stories... For example Driving and most sport games. Its the gameplay mechanic and overall designs that makes that genre good.

However... take GOW and Twisted Metal Black... both Jaffe games, had incredible stories, and made you feel for the protagonists.

I want more story in games.
