I'm glad the story in Demon's and Dark Souls were done the way they were done.

RPG stories are often anything but good and take away from roleplaying. Just give me a framework and some objectives then let me roleplay. I'm tired of playing interactive movies.

Amen.

One of the reason I couldn't play FF13. If I want to watch a movie, I'll watch a movie.

Yeah, it was really exciting to roleplay as either someone who links the fire or doesn't. I haven't seen such an open story since Gran Turismo, where I played a guy who used to struggle with his identity because people made fun of him for enjoying crochet and his dad was abusive.

Sure, if you ignore everything in between and character customization.

It's great, despite the lack of drawn out story presentation, both games have two very immersive/addictive worlds that do have great characters.

They don't don't annoy you
They allow you to speculate a lot more because they are mysterious to coincide with the vague story.

The open to suggestion story in DeS and DkS is a fantastic idea. Peoples discussions about what they think, put it together and you have some interesting ideas and stories.

I see topics about 'I hate this game because theres no story'. Just shows that some people cant look beyond a 'solid' story and give their own thoughts on a loose one.

Kinda sad really.

Oh god this times a million. I didn't even get past the whole ice place because I was sick of that crap. That game was a disappointment.

Journey does is right. Nothing but drawings on walls explain who you are and why you are doing what you are doing. I like living in a world and finding out how it works, I love the Myst series and you are doing nothing but reading bits of paper here and there and observing things,
