    ...that loves the story in games!
    Sure, some games have horrible gameplay, but overall I prefer the story.

    How about you? ^^

    I prefer story over pretty much everything. Guess that's why I like RPG games so much?

    I agree! I played a lot of games for the story, even when the gameplay self was horrible. One of the games I really liked was Lux-Pain, the story is really good, but there are too many grammar mistakes and such.

    The stories are the reason I like Ace Attorney too!

    Best example for Story but not-as-excellent controls and gameplay would be silent hill 2

    Granted, this belongs to general gaming area - But that has the story what really redeems to HOLY SLOWPOKE rating winning attacking and well... mostly that, since otherwise it redeems it all.

    I enjoy a good story in a game. A good story can save what is an otherwise average game.

    One of my pet hates (and there are many) is people who complain about that cutscenes cannot be skipped in a game that only came out the day before, that is to say a game that they certainly have not played before.

    Another one is people who play Japanese RPG's with no knowledge of the language. I mean what's the point? An RPG is nothing more than a big story with the occasional fight. Taking away the story aspect reduces it to trial and error button pressing.

    Rant over.

    I play all these games only for story

    That's why I f*cking love Phoenix Wright xD

    Love a good story-line. The gameplay doesn't have to be that great, it just has to have an epical story to it.

    Hmm I have to go with gameplay over the story. I like a good story as much as anyone else but unless the game is actually fun and has good gameplay, I won't make it through the story.

    Personally: No compelling story = I stop playing within one hour. Oh so many games I will never play again due to that.

    Yay, so I'm not the only one. [​IMG] I play games mostly for the story. Some I don't, but most, I do. Guess that's the reader in me. Now if only the writer in me would stop being a lazyass...

    Heh, for me story isn't all that important. Maybe this is why I don't care for RPG's too much anymore......they ramble on and on about nothing too much. I just want to get on with the action. Just tell me where I have to go and what I have to do and let me go do it. That's all the "story" I need. Don't have endless text bubbles telling me about useless stuff that means nothing to my quest. I never remember all those trivial details anyway and it all comes down to being nothing more than unnecessary filler to waste my time reading and artificially inflates game time, IMO.

    If I want a story, I'll read a book.

    But then again, most of my favorite games have a story that only took up about a paragraph, if they bother with a story at all.

    Story > gameplay
    Then there's Tales games with spectacular gameplay AND story.

    I love story also. It's why I like Final Fantasy, Ace Attorney series, Kingdom Hearts series, Metal Gear Solid series, etc.

    I also love sports games (Madden, NCAA Football, MLB The Show), but obviously not for the story...

    Amazing game, the story was really good, except for the grammar mistakes and the fact that subtitles were different than the things being said. If you haven't tried it yet, do it now.

    i tend to play games that dont always have the best stories. but when they do, i guess i view it as a bonus.
