Strain42, I refuse to read your whole post, as it couldn't possibly contain anything worth reading. You claim to know of RPGs with good writing, but you aren't willing to back that up with evidence. Pathetic. The fact is, there aren't RPGs with good writing.
To say that there are no RPGs with good stories implies that you have played every single RPG in existence, which is extremely unlikely. Therefore, your statement is not a fact. Try again.
And Strain actually provided an example at the end of his post.
Also, to answer your original question How do you guys put up with the terrible writing in every single RPG?
Because there are people who find terrible things to still be enjoyable. Looks like you're not one of them. --- The average intelligence of a fandom is inversely proportional to its size.
Thank you TC for doing exactly what I thought you would do. The fact that you didn't bother reading my post shows that you don't actually care what anybody here has to say, you don't care that there are good examples of RPG writing, you're just here to mess with people, and of course, shout your opinion as fact. Which is never a good thing to do.
Alright folks, pack it up, nothing to see here. Lets just leave before he comes back.
And if you had read my post, as others have mentioned, I did provide an example. But thanks for making yourself look stupid for me. In the time it took you to write up your little rant, you could've finished reading my post and walked away without egg on your face. --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/
I like RPGs because of interaction, the mix, the...whatever, between story and gameplay. If I wanted only the gameplay, I'd just play other genre (Adventure, or just any other Casual game) If I wanted the story, I'd read some good books. (I'm not expecting Shakespeare! And not every game has "awful" story) --- Whenever someone talks with you in another language, you say: "Teu pai"
