It definitely gets ridiculous. There is a point where having too much storyline just becomes pointless. Games like Ocarina of Time are perfect, in my opinion. They have the main storyline and a few fun, non-essential side missions. When you get to making endless sandbox games with 100,000 missions (Grand Theft Auto), most people are just going to end up destroying shit instead of completing the game.
If a game like GTA didn't have a shit ton of missions it would just get tedious.. Running around the city robbing shit and killing people gets boring after awhile.
I don't necessarily have a problem with story in "roleplaying games" after all you know what you're signing up for as it's supposed to be a storydriven experience.
My problem is with games that don't need a long drawn out storyline like action orientated games. I would happily trade story for more gameplay. I'm not saying cut out the story altogether, but I want to play a game not watcha bad movie and fall asleep on my controller for half an hour.
Anyways, you are referencing MP3 again? I watched a full play-through of that game and I still don't get it - there is JUST enough gameplay in it, IMO. It's weird that some cutscenes are skippable while others aren't, but whatever.
Seriously though, I do like the Resident Evil games, I think it's right on the peak of how much story in games I can tolerate. The majority of the game is action and gameplay, not holyfuckwhenisitgonnaend storylines.
Detroit Red Wings/Dallas Cowboys MARKS FOR ROWDY RODDY PIPER Just when you think you know the answers, I change the questions. You ever notice Hulk Hoganís got no hair on his chest? Only friend heís got that DOES is Cyndi Lauper.
Ha that is funny. I do actually remember having to read the booklet which came with the game to understand more of the story (never really did, just on the way back home when I was a kid). Nowadays, when they do that, they sell it seperately.
