Should Dark Souls Win "Best Story"...

What do you guys think, do you think Dark Souls deserves to win a "best story" type award? How do you interpret Dark Souls story?

To me I think Dark Souls is the best kind of story telling, open ended and open to interpretation. The types of stories that are open to interpretation like this can be told and retold forever. The subtle style of story telling I think definitely deserves to win a "best story" award.

Eh, best story award would go to something where the story absolutely sucks you in. You can blast through Dark and say "What story? There was a story?"

Do you really think a story that people have to actually THINK about would win an award in modern times?

Give me a good enough signature to use, and I'll replace this one.

I'd give it best story since unlike other games, the story didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the game. If I want to read tons of text or watch a bunch of cut scenes I'll read a book or watch a movie. Lasted less than 5 hours on Dragon Age and Fallout 3 cuz there was no game play...

No.

It has some curious details, but bits and pieces of information scattered in item descriptions does not make a good story.

I would say no, but when you look at other video games - seriously, what the **** do they offer?

Yes it should, because everything else is worse. Far Cry 3, for example, should be laughed and mocked relentlessly for its "story".

Yes, because the writing isn't embarrassing.

Wasn't aware that dark souls actually had a story. Nothing to remember anyway.
