Never. Plenty of eye-rolling though.

Hey fellow bombers!
I usually lurk on forums regarding "gender issues" in video games (with some few exceptions), however, this is something I want to openly discuss.
Does a game need to include both genders (or even iregular gender identies) for a story to be good? Does the quality of the story in a video game get determined by the genders presented, or their roles in the games? It wouldn't of course make much sense if you had a game based around women's rights, and not have any female character important or even presented.
What sparked my curoristy about this topic, was a reference to a tweet by totalbiscuit made awhile back.
He could of course be trolling, but his replies on this tweet doesn't point that way.
Leaving totalbiscuit out of it (I just wanted to be honest about where I got the idea about gender and storytelling), what do you guys personally think?
Wouldn't using this logic make other great entertainment pieces (imho) like Shawshank Redemption and Saving Private Ryan a shitty story?
What about the show supernatural? It has had very few main characters that are female, and those who appeared the most in the show, were evil demons (or other nonhuman beings). I would guess that is a pretty shitty story by using the same logic as above?
If I am not being clear on my position, just ask.
I am actually trying to understand this way of thinking.
I am sorry for any horrible grammar made on my part.
I am not really a FF guy, but I gave this game a shot.
And I didn't like it. The 15 hour tutorial part of the game was okei, I really think the game would have shined better with a more "open" world game. It was extremely linear and I gave up on the end of the game. I had no interest in battling a boss for 15 min to then do something wrong, and then having it to do it all over again.
So yes, I would claim this is a bad game.
In no particular order.
Bioshock 1 (infinite was close to beating this one)
Batman Arkham Asylum
Gears of War 1
Mass Effect 1
Dead Space 1
Witcher 1 (nr 2 was awesome too)
Bad Company 2
Total War Shogun 2
Nr11: Dragon Age Origins
Orcs must die series
Black Ops MP
The Darkness 2
I guess I have been lucky with my local gamestop. The few times I have pre-orded, they have gotten the game for me, and even a few times, let me buy the game 1 day before the release date.
Yes, they tend to ask too many questions, but I guess it has a lot to do with how you ask, and how good you are at saying no fast enough.
If you don't like their trade in deals, go local, use other websites, facebook groups etc, works great for me in my 1 horse town, will probably work wonders in big cities.
Heilo fellow bombers!
I remember right before the release of the Witcher 2, the developers talked about how this game has 15 "different" endings, and that the person who were able to achieve that first, and prove it, would get a t-shirt signed by the developers.
Does anyone know if anyone got a t-shirt? :P
