Is there really any need for spoilers?

Skip them. The spoilers are entirely justified. GiantBomb is a place for any and all information about games, and the story is one of the biggest parts of a game. Expect it if you're going to go to individual game pages.

An encyclopedia of games should have detailed plot information on any game. It's easy enough to not read the spoilers.

There should be a small paragraph long summary of the basis of the game and what you are set off to do and why.

I have to say that the way the article is formatted is horrible though. It's written as if it were a guide. It needs to be deleted and edited. So the OP isn't exactly in the wrong here.

The blurb and overview isn't bad. I guess if you want to say the plot is poorly written.. then okay. But I wouldn't say the OP isn't wrong. If you're going to read the plot, then you're going to get spoilers.

Dude, Black has a total "throw away" story anyway. Don't worry about spoilers. From what I recall, it's all told through some boring filmed cutscenes and none of it really makes much sense or is anything you'll care about. Really, I'd recommend just avoiding the game in general, but if you're pretty set on playing it, just don't expect too much.
