I always enjoyed tons of RPG's in the past and was surprised how people hated the stories at the time. Even something simple as fighting a big bad empire was fascinating as a kid. That said, I know it comes with the territory, being a kid, less knowledge, and more.
My question: does anyone else remember a game or series they like knowing the story is poor when under a microscope or not revolutionary (according to internet consensus) in a way, yet you still find it amazing and fun due to enjoying the ride, by the end. The characters, world, tone, etc.
