Nintendo games have generally had weak storylines.

I'm apparently one of the few on this board that seem to recall games can possess both engaging stories and fun gameplay.

It's always just an excuse for gameplay. And don't bring up Zelda as a counterexample considering how messed up the continuity of those games are.


Metroid Prime.

For the most part though, story in games is like CGI in movies; not always necessary.


Riiiiiight.... cause Avengers would have felt the same if the Hulk and Iron Man were done with wires and cheap styrofoam costumes!

Also Prime has a disgusting story. It has some interesting lore but the story is almost a joke.

Metroid for example, or Skyward Sword.

The Lore in Metroid Prime is it's story, and it is done really well. You truly feel like you are Samus investigating the world and learning about what has been going on. The plot was simply fantastic and it immersed you completely in the world.

In Mass Effect you weren't alone with no one to talk to.

I'm talking about the extended lore.

Paper Mario games have a story too. This latest one for the 3DS may seem a little more diluted though, but whatever.

Story is just a crutch for bad gameplay.

See Skyrim etc....


That's not always the case.

See Deus Ex etc...
