DMC3 and it wasn't even trying. Dude, slow down. You're starting to make us pros look bad. You're becoming the Unknown of pros.

I've read that Rock Paper Shotgun article. It was good enough.


Try page two and three of that thread which directly answers your question.

/how the Hell you people get by with ten posts a page is beyond me.


I think the topic title there wasn't inviting enough for a discussion about good game stories, that's why I felt the need to create a topic about it. It needed a reboot (playing with you).

Did I say anything inappropriate with this topic? I think there's nothing to criticize in this thread's text, to be honest with you.

I've heard about this game's gameplay on the Wii, but never anything about its story. I heard there's a PS3 port, is it good?

I wanna see what you come up with. Lots of people here think DmC has a ridiculous storyline, so I wanna see what are the ones that surpass it in your opinion.

Personally, at the top of my head there are probably 6~7 games that have a more developed story than this one and probably only 1 of them in the action genre. I'll share them as we move ahead with the thread, if people post stuff here.

Games have never been famous for their amazing plots, but I think this game was a step in the right direction. I think the social commentary in DmC, while not original, was done in a very nice way. It had a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor (the beverage is not addictive just because it's a soft drink, the news guy who says "just doing God's work" is actually a demon, etc) and the brotherly rivalry was done very nicely. They clearly didn't hate each other by the end of the game, they were hurt by how the other one wouldn't "play" it their way. Also Vergil didn't seem like a villain at the end of the game, just someone with a different point of view, like most good villains are (his way of thinking reminds me of Ozymandias in Watchmen). Just my opinion though.

You can post just the name of the game or elaborate if you want. I'd certainly prefer if you justify your answer.


PS: Blatant trolls will be ignored. Answers like "DMC1~4" or "any other game", without justification or any kind of elaboration, will be ignored as well.

Of course I expect the normal group of trolls in this board to post exactly what I asked not to.


Any SH game,any ME game, any MGS game, Okami, NMH (yes, for the *** sake, it has so many sides) Max Payne, ALice, Folklore, and yes I like DMC story more than fight DA power ding.

Are we talking depth or quality? Because they're two different things.

I can probably safely say the Silent Hill games--barring maybe Origins or Homecoming or the original, and even those are hesitant--are deeper than DmC. They all explore fairly mature, psychological issues. SH2 and Shattered Memories, in particular, are notable for how they handle themes of grief, reconciliation, and domestic violence.

The storytelling, however, is not necessarily fantastic. The SH games typically suffer from awkward pacing and reliance upon notes and memos.

In terms of quality, I'd say DmC is decent. It could have been much more developed. I look to something like the first three Yakuza games when I want to talk about quality storytelling. They're a little cliched, but you get good character development and great pacing, for the most part.
