Nothing. We don't have to in my country. I hated tipping in America... I was fine to do it, I get why it's a thing, but nobody would help or talk about it. It was always "oh you don't have to" or "just whatever you think is fair".

I love video games but straight up I cant think of a single game that has had as good a story as most good books. If you want to take issue with how people phrase that then alright but I think what they are saying is just the reality of it. Books and film only really have a story to hang their hat on and have been around for a lot longer. They are just more developed art forms in general. Video games are more complex and new. They don't have to have a story to be good.
You summed it up well. I think The Last of Us has a brilliant story better than a ton of movies, but if the game sucked who cares? Conversely I really like the Metal Gear Solid games, but their stories are bloated and often tell more than they show -- but the games play great so I don't care.
The OP fails to acknowledge that is is every medium - "it's a good story for a superhero comic", "it's a good story for a big dumb action film". Few stories are truly brilliant and even less are video game stories that don't require the preface.
GAMEREACTOR SAID THAT!??! HOLY SHIT!!??
When did Giant Bomb become a link dumping ground for IGN, Eurogamer and Polygon as well as a place to regurgitate unsubstantiated news from GAF, Reddit and other random game sites?
Trusted sources... yeah right.
I don't think it looks all that great already. It looks good, but not "YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS TO BELIEVE IT" levels it's getting. I mean it just looks kinda lifeless to me... even the space stuff looked a bit done to me. Shooting through that asteroid looked so fake and stupid. I dunno. I don't want to hate on the game after on trailer, but yeah, it looks good but not amazing.
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
Just rolls right off the tongue. Seriously, what a fucking awful title.
- Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance (what?)
- Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (what?!)
- Dissidia Duodecim 012 Final Fantasy (this is the SECOND game in the series. How about Dissidia 2?)
- Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (Who pronounced that title right the first time? Or even the tenth?)
Garbage titles evocative of nothing
Bravely Default isn't great, but it's not the worst. IMHO
I started at Ocarina of Time on the N64... I grew up a SEGA fan so the 64 was my first Nintendo console. I played it recently on the 3DS and it totally holds up.
I like all timeline stuff, but go into it totally blind and read about it later. I think it's best to play from Ocarina then move to Wind Waker... wait for the inevitable Majora's Mask remake.
For the record I think Ocarina of Time is my favourite game ever, and Twilight Princess is utter garbage. I'm sick of saying it's so-so or it's ok ... it's boring as hell.
If you're REALLY into the timeline start with Skyward Sword as chronologically it's the first game. And despite it's slow nature it's a great game.
