Indulge in it's whiffy sensation

What are you talking about here? People wanted to play the Last of Us for the story.JazzJack2 said:Why on earth would any want to play a game purely for it's story? even the best of storytelling in games is pretty average in comparison to the standards of literature.
People wanted to play Bioshock Infinite for the story.
People wanted to play Heavy Rain for the story.
What do you mean you don't understand why people play videogames for the story?
If people want to read books, they will read a damn book. If somebody wants to play a game with a good story, they will pick up a game with a good story.
How does that prove they are shitty game makers? And how does this reflect upon the game development community as a whole? The first and foremost priority for Bioware was to make amazing stories contained within a game.This shows just how shit Bioware (and a large amount of other modern game designers) have become in recent times. The fact that the gameplay is not integral to the story (and is seen as even seen as a nuisance by fans) but the two are instead distinct entities of which one can be disposed without detriment to the other, shows they don't understand how to write storylines for games.
Nevermind the fact that when Mass Effect first started they were for all intents and purposes a small to average company, their first priority was the story. Not the gameplay.
