So we have games that sometimes, talk too much, and have very little to offer in terms of gameplay, still is classified as a game, while there is a category that exist in gaming industry called "Graphic novels" Is basically the form of a book with player interaction. Most of it is just still images with text to read (Sometime voiced characters) Is it a game or not? Lol Stuff like this exist is Metal gear soild digital graphic novel for psp, which is a store brought "GAME" you play on playstation portable. Basically is a retelling of the metal gear solid game on playstation/ game cube in the form of a comic book or as the japanese call manga. It features comic book like drawings including quore bubbles and still images with very little animation. Fun fact the cutscenes in Metal Gear solid peace walker also on psp and ps3 Via HD collection, was the same person who did the graphic novel comic. The only difference between this graphic novel and the actual playstation/game cube game is you are watching and reading a book rather than people actually speaking or you interacing which is the game part. Either way is still classified as a game, not a video or movie. Most of the metal gear series is watching a story in cutscenes with events unfolding to understand what goes on, so i mean this only started when the psx game came out, the first two games for msx (A microsoft computer console that actually had games on it by konami at the time, most nes games were ported from there... or least based off them) Were more about action, and had less to read. Personally while this game is centered on understanding a plot, and most of the game play has you being stealthly, i think it should just been a video, tv series, movies or what not. Phoenix Wright Ace Attourny series is another game classified as graphic novel. While is a game, player interaction is limited. Phoenix Wright is a defence attourney or lawyer who you are assisting (I use assist as it mostly seem that way than actually controlling him) on his investigations and cases by helping him interrogate suspects, witness, find clues and evidence then at court, pressing the witness until you can exploit their testimony flaws to expose them and defend your client from being deem guilty. While most of the interaction is you playing detecitve, and attourney, most of this seem like something you could watch instead of play. Please understand, i'm not saying i dislike playing these games or graphic novels, i'm not saying they shouldn't be what they are, i am saying perhaps it maybe better as a video than a game, when buying a game you expecting to play it, be active. Just some games have very limited activities to do that you might as well just be watching it instead of playing it. So in your own opinion, what is some games you feel it should just been a video? Also i'm not asking anyone to debate anything or what i said, is just opinions. We agree the games exisxt the way it does, and we like it, but it could just be as good if you were watching it as a video. I mostly think the games that have stories that seem to be more focused on it having you read or listen to what is going on, than rather be a game you play and do more of. So for this the games have to have more story in it than actual game play, like the two i mentioned above, or many RPG games.
