You know, those incredibly stupid broad statements that sound like a sixth grader thought of them and decided that he is right while you are wrong, all the while pissing you right the hell off. (warning, if this topic takes off, it will most likely have plenty of rantings from many people, including me.)
Note, this was taken from a actual gamefaq member who will be unnamed.
"Story is overhyped. Video games should be interactive, if I want a story I'll pick up a book. The most story that a game should have is the amount used in the Mega Man games. Give or take."
Whenever someone talks about a videogame story and say this, I consider those people who use this INCREDIBLY stupid statement as children as best. in fact, they are dumber than children, it is quite possibly the most flawed/dumbass arguement for hating videogames POSSIBLE.
Story is equal to gameplay, gameplay is equal to story, THIS IS A FACT. what that dumbass gamefaq member said proves that many members of the gaming community are to much of dumbasses to even know what the word, "story" IS! And in fact are not in a sane being of mind for the fact that more and more videogames with great stories are releasing than any time before! (maybe since adventure games back then, but even then they were pretty low quality anyways.)
Without a story, videogames wouldn't be worth a damn, seriously, I only buy videogames with great stories, I truly do, and my collection is HUGE. It is because of story that videogames keep evolving and getting more and more different and better.
Yeah, I am raging, I know, but that statement is the dumbest thing ever, and when some people agree with such a stupid as hell arguement, it gives me a MUCH larger ignore list on that site, proves that many videogamers are not ready to mature and get themselves a brain. (espically considering videogames like bioshock are becoming common just shows they haven't played a single modern videogame in years.)
What statements online do you rage at intensely? And describe why you get pissed off at them.
