where did all the unique storytelling experiences go this year?

Ok, so, my favorite game of last year was Nier, because it was so unique; not in the combat, necessarily (though they do shift between perspectives like it was going out of style) but the storytelling... very very sad game. Didn't get a lot of very good press, though, because the combat could be considered boring by some (it was at times), some of the side quests were monsters (also true). Alpha Protocol was another one that was slightly busted in spots, but the story telling was phenomenal and the characters were hella rad. Deadly Premonition! sure, that game is straight up busted, but you can hardly say it wasn't unique.

This year, though, there hasn't been that game, nor does it look like there will be that game, looking at the releases. I mean, Radiant Historia would certainly fit the bill... but I got really burned out, some bad design choices plus the combat drained me to the point where I didn't even finish the dang thing, so it doesn't especially count (for me). E.Y.E., maybe, but the awesome parts about that game aren't necessarily the story telling. Honestly the most unique at this point is Witcher 2, and that's really only because of the choice before the second act. and looking at the releases list, I really don't see anything that'll be super unique in terms of story telling, so looks like I'm going to have to wait until 2012 for that; Metro: Last Light, Prey 2 looks like it could have some interesting story beats, Far Cry 3 if only for that awesome trailer (though I'll probably be dissappointed), Last Guardian...

I dunno, am I just crazy? (some people probably do think me crazy for liking AP and Nier as much as I do, but WHATEVER)

Did you even play Ghost Trick?

Does Portal 2 count as unique? Because I just finished that moments ago and I am truly shocked about how much I care about that world and characters considering the minimal storytelling and how you really have to pay attention to your surroundings so that you get the full story

That ending was awesome, now I'm checking around forums for things that I might have missed, and there is some terrific stuff in the Portal 2 forum

EDIT: I realise all Valve stories are like this but this truly blew me away, more than Half Life

forgot about that, but I dunno... aside from the twist at the end, the story wasn't ALL that unique (the gameplay was the crazy part after all). I'd put it up above the witcher 2, but... eh I dunno. The story just isn't as good as Nier or AP or any of those other games.

@Venatio: the story was awesome, yes, but the story was just a continuation of portal 1 and a further exploration into the history of Aperture.

When it comes to AP I'll disagree. Your saying a time travelling ghost story isn't unique?

Last Guardian is probably not til next year...

journey maybe?

Ico and SOTC if you haven't played them yet, not really new though.

I guess it's more.. the way the stories played out. AP was the most reactionary game I'd ever played (even you can admit that), Nier's NG+ was... the best implementation of that I had ever seen, plus the way the endings got more and more depressing. in Ghost Trick, the story was weird but the story still played out in a singular manner and besides the whole premise of it... I guess unique was PROBABLY the wrong word to use but my point still stands.

Bastion was a pretty unique storytelling experience. They filled out the world history and civilizations by having one of the characters basically give you a Quick Look of the whole game.

Did you play Bastion?

You should definitely play Alice Madness Returns. It goes places you're totally not expecting in the last chapter. Has the most memorable ending from any game I've played this year, kinda fucked me up emotionally.

It's one of those endings where you go, "No, no no. This is not happening. Oh fuck. Really? So that's the message of the story. Damn. I'm sad now, but it makes sense."

lolwut... you've got a bleedin' Catherine avatar, how can you say there hasn't been any unique story-telling experiences from this year? I haven't played it myself (and most likely never will, in all honesty), though even I will attest that it has one of the most unique tales for quite some time judging from the trailers and the reviews and such.

Posted by Jay444111

Question I have for you. Did you even play any video games this year? I am dead serious. Dead space 2, Portal 2, Dragon age 2, L.A. Noire, Deus ex human revolution, or anything else this year? Or are you ignoring all of these to just complain like how many others do? don't mean to be so mean. but honestly. Either actually start looking around for video games with stories or stop freaking saying such... well, unfactual things.

oh, and bastion is also awesome.

I just want to clarify, are you talking about the way the story is told, or the story itself in games?

Bastion has the best story telling in years. Well implemented in the gameplay, short and snappy but still very very deep. Would love to see more in that style.

It's basically persona but with 30 year olds and 30 year old problems. Not to say that isn't good or we don't need more of that (we do), but it's still the basic atlus story (which I love, but... DDS and DDS2 are probably the weirdest games they've put out)

as far as Bastion, I dunno. the demo didn't sell me on the gameplay? also I don't want to play it and enjoy it since everyone else has pretty much enjoyed it (yes that does make me a terrible person) and Alice, it seems to be at 25 dollars on Amazon instant download... might as well

@Laketown: How is Catherine's story similar in any way to Persona 3 or Persona 4 other than the twist?

Don't say anything! I still haven't beaten them!

oh, and to the TC, play Dead Space 2, the entire game doesn't have a single loading screen other then starting the bugger up and the story is told amazingly well. Amazing video game.

Posted by Animasta

@FluxWaveZ: it's solving personal problems by doing weird shit. In persona 4, you solve your friends problems by either; helping them accept themselves in crazy TV land, or you talk to them outside and help them realize that sewing bunnies is actually cool or whatever. In Catherine, You are trying to solve both your friends problems and your own, though mostly your own so I guess it is a little different, but it's still very reminiscent of it, because you still solve problems by talking to these weirdos in babel and in the stray sheep.

Deus Ex, the Witcher 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles all have really great story telling.

Some concepts may be similar, but the actual story--the intrigue--is completely different.
Posted by MannyMAR

Nothing I played this year was anywhere as unique as El Shaddai. The premise is insane, the characters are intriguing, and the soundtrack is amazing. It's nowhere near as long as Nier and it's linear as hell, but the story was strong enough to make me seek out it's source material to compare the difference.

Corpse Party looks like it's going to be unique.

I really recommend picking up Bastion if you're looking for one of the most unique and enjoyable stories of the year. The gameplay also gets continually better as the game goes on. While I absolutely recommend it at full price, at least keep it in mind if you see it go cheap.

I played through L.A. Noire, and I gotta say that this entire point you were trying to make is completely wrong in all fronts. the Noir story and it's telling in LA is better then the movie industry has even tried to do for many years now, and the gameplay actually makes sense in the video games universe, I am guessing you are one of the guys that wanted to kill pedestrains and have it be a GTA clone when in reality a cop can't freaking do that.

Posted by tourgen

yeah I get what you are saying.  I was hunting around for a unique and unusual story game this year too.  I haven't really found what I've been looking for, but I haven't played Dues Ex yet.  Maybe that will do it for me.  The Witcher 2 is pretty awesome.  I love the story and the odd setting and mechanics.  What I really want though is that $20 story-game with some busted gameplay mechanics and a story so crazy and weird it's one-of-a-kind.  E.Y.E. could have been it if it had some more core story to it.

Out: LA Noire, Bastion, Child of Eden, LittleBigPlanet 2, Mortal Kombat, Amnesia: Dark Descent, Dishwasher: Vampire Smile

Upcoming: Journey, The Old Republic, Minecraft
