How Great Stories Ruin Games

Adam writes: "Last week I finally broke down and got myself an iPhone. There are myriad reasons for doing it, but mostly I was tired of hearing about the games on there and being unable to play them.

"When I was a kid, the rush of mastering a level in Sonic, or the thrill of a well planned battle in Shining Force kept me riveted to my screen for hours. Now I get that same feeling from getting three stars in Angry Birds"

i disagree ..strongly ..

what made this games so loved was the fact that they were doable to an extent .. in angry birds you're just delaying the inevitable ... i'm only frustrated where as i can feel the thrill of clearing a Tetris at very high speed with maluses or just mastering dead scrap zone in sonic 1.

not the same thing IMO

I disgaree. I don't think story affects the gameplay in a negative way; most of the time, if a game was going to suck it was going to suck regardless of how good the writing was.
