So, if you've read Will Smith's top 10 games of the year, you know that he has some opinion on the writing in video games. If you haven't, here is what he said:
This is the year that I started really paying attention to dialog in games, and most of it is pretty bad. Even in games likeMass Effect 3, which successfully build complex, interesting worlds, the things that come out of characters’ mouths are frequently laughable. Just as I was ready to flip on subtitles once and for all, along came The Walking Dead.
I don't know if I agree with Mr. Will Smith here. I mean, yes, many games have really bad writing/stories, but saying that the dialogue is "frequently laughable"? I don't see it.
Yes, there is bad dialogue here and there in every game, but is it really that bad? I watch a lot of TV Shows and movies and play a lot of video games, too. I would say the writing in many of them (Those that actually care about their story, and don't use it as a mean to kill every single thing) are comparable, if not even with movies/TV Shows.
What do you guys think?
