Why don't nintendo games have story?

You would think that after 25 years of these franchises existing they would be able to implement a story besides save the princess which is for their 2 biggest franchises. These games have no plot turns or anything. I mean you have games like bioshock infinite or metal gear which have incredible stories and worlds but nintendo is allowed to have the bare minimum.

Why don't a lot of games have actual story by your logic? Because for most of the games like Bioshock Infinite there are tons of games with basic stories. Besides that sometimes simple stories work.

Yeah, games like Mario don't need a massive story with plot twists to be enjoyable. "Save the princess, save the world." Mario has lived by that theme since day 1 and I don't want it to change.

Zelda's gotten a lot more interesting than just "save the princess" in recent years

Remember Mario Sunshine's story?

That's why.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

There are some Nintendo games with great stories. I find the Paper Mario series does this well, especially Super Paper Mario (which oddly is the one that people aren't a big fan of it seems). Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword both did well with their stories.

I dunno man, I don't think that every game needs to be a sweeping epic tale. Sometimes you can have a good story on a smaller level and it would be just fine.

Zelda definitely has evolved, story wise. Ocarina of Time had a massively epic story and they continue to create new and engaging stories. The Zelda lore of "save the princess" still remains, but Link is treated like the story of a legendary hero being passed from generation to generation and is a different story depending on who tells it.
